Re: What a wind Forcast - Hurricane Florence

Fortunately for the US we have spectacular access to information & communication. I think that's a huge difference maker in the human loss factor. I hope everyone in NC, SC, & S. VA are scampering out like they should be. The most devastating hurricane that's ever hit NC was Hazel, 1956. Only Cat4 ....

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Every single kite brand has their issues. When I first started kiting, I expected brand support but quickly found that it was minimal especially for consumables like bars and lines. Thats when my focus changed from complaining about it to doing something. None of the gear I use today is standard ma...

Re: Switch Lineup

Inflated kite today at home. Isolated leak to a strut valve area with soapy water. It's not a small leak and the strut lost pressure quickly. Emailing Switchkites was not easy as the website link to email didn't function. Found an email address under the warranty tab. Will see what they respond wit...

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Sure seems like Core & Flysurfer have some serious customer service issues. Thank goodness there are brands that are solid in customer service, don't gouge customers on pricing, & perform great for my needs. Pay more for attitude? - Not me

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

I have conducted some enquiries, obviously can't help about internal USA carriage issues, but I have been onto the guy at Core who is at the sharp end of any warranty issues and he too confirmed there are no issues with bridle failures, however he did point out that at times in the haste to get lau...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Do people usually buy branded replacements for bridles?! They’re expensive as f**k and have crazy shipping fees too, go into your local kite shop or paragliding shop or chandlery and get them to make you replacement, simple I recently had to replace a large amount of the bridle system on my Flysurf...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Congratulations to Flysurfer direct parts sales. US rep for Flysurfer is the worst! Doesn't back squat. Bought a 15M Boost 2 & will never buy another FS because of him. I met & got to know a couple of engineers @ FS and wanted to support them but after my bad experience - no way. Best customer serv...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Re: Heavy Nitros @ lewmt - Being a 5-strut kite, that accounts for some of the additional heft. I can't speak for Bill, but I don't think light weight was on the Nitro's design goal short list. Thanks - I was comparing them to other 5 strut kites like Ozone Edge & SS Turbine. Not in my post but out...
