Re: Kiteloop Advice Needed

Kite turns slower when depowered. When going for a loop, commit to full power and full turn. Anything less is actually harder.

Re: Black marks on my hand off Cabrinha 2017 control bar back lines

The UHMWPE (plastic) that the kite lines are made of is notoriously difficult to dye. As in nearly impossible. May just have been a bad post dye wash, or a bad batch of dye. Unless you see the fibers fraying I would not worry at all.

Re: Voting for KOTA - confusing

I am sure voting has little real impact. It may sway judges a little of they find two riders to be very close, but I do think that the skill shown is 95% of what the selection panel is looking at.

Re: Ozone Enduro - instant progression

Agreed. Please do give us a rundown of your feelings on the differences between those kites. I am specifically curious about the Vegas-Dice-FX-Enduro comparison but you might as well compare them all.

Re: Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

Unfortunately you have to make a choice if you want to do the traditional extensions on the kite side: If you shorten them on the bar side, then you do not change the geometry going to 22m, but adding the extensions to get back to 24m will. Conversely, you could shorten on the kite side which change...

Re: Untangling a bridal

As the owner of a Chrono and a Hyperlink, I can say that for whatever reason the Hyperlink loves to tangle whereas the Chrono seems impervious to it. Boggles my mind. I got it tangled on the beach one day, had a buddy step in and try to help but he made the rookie mistake of detaching the flying lin...

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Image Smoothing As A Gimbal Replacement

How was the GoPro mounted for these clips? Looks like a chest mount by the angle.

Re: 2018 quiver advice?

Wonder why nobody mention Dash? That 3 strut very fast and light versatile kite, loops amazingly well and on top it's close to Torch for unhooking as additional benefit... L. Much to my own chagrin, I share your sentiment. The Dash looks like a lovely kite, a great mix of the Pivot and the Torch. I...

Re: Harness Position

...Yes.

It is the right way to do it.

Harness is not a bra.

Re: 2018 quiver advice?

If you want a combination foil and looping kite, you probably need to take a long, hard look at three strut kites like the Pivot, Evo, or RPM/SST. Foiling loves the light weight kites, and all of the aforementioned 3 stutterers featured in the 2018 King of the Air competition (SST instead of RPM, bu...
