Re: Effect of split point on bar trim

pinching is a little bit uncommon on tube kites but a very real problem. I have run across at least 3 or 4 kites which did not work correctly on a high Y or vice versa on a low V, the kite couldn't correctly breath or would be too open on the wrong sort of bar. You don't see this on smaller kites 7m...

Re: Effect of split point on bar trim

the difference can be pretty significant especially on larger kites so it's worth remembering to adjust your trim! On a 20 meter kite I calculate it's 2 inches of trim or 5cm you will definitely notice it. I never change the trim on my bars to fix the problems. I keep all my control bars equal line ...

Re: Lightwind board - width or area that really matters?

So comparing Flysurfer Flydoor5 160x44cm and Flysurfer Radical5 144x46cm - would longer board mean lower end or it's width that is the primary lightwind factor here? Width is generally more important. The point is that a "better" lightwind board planes at a lower speed and you get a lower...

Re: GoPro views

It is always good to have more options when shooting. How do they do in low light? The GoPro performance has improved over the years but if the light is too low, it shows. Thanks for the information on your experience with the Peau lens. Peau doesn't actually make any lenses all they do is source t...

Re: GoPro views

It provides some interesting options. I learned as a kid that in photography to get something you have to give something up. The reduction of the field of view by 40 degrees would be a problem for most of my kiting, diving and skiing shooting. Monopod work too in air come to think of it. If you cap...
