Re: NHKitesurfer dies in Mexico in December

that sucks NHK. Like everyone else I'm hoping you recover and can kite again some day. I take it you never figured out what went wrong that day. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Duty to warn

I mean cutting the arms and legs off of a perfectly good expensive 5mm suit just seems like you are trying too hard. I do this to. Looks better when you are making a viddy! I don't cut the arms off though because I like wearing a rash guard over my wetsuit. about the "duty to warn" though. Look, I ...

That all makes sense. Now assuming the same aspect ratio kite, same model make etc.is hang time a function of kite size?. For example 10m ozone edge vs 13m ozone edge
Now that's a hard question. I suspect it depends on the kite.

Re: What determines hang time? Strictly kite size?

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5822/30516142780_6c3e553e96_c.jpg i used to think the same as you thought it was just projected area but it really isnt. The friendly guys on kiteforum eventually straightened me out. it's important to have a kite with an efficient glide ratio if you want more hangtime.

Re: Bridle line replacement

yeah just replace it with some dyneema it will be about 2 or 3 times stronger than the original bridle. I wouldn't replace the pullies but it's kind of fun to mod a kite so go ahead. I wouldn't use either of the rings but go with the ronstan orbit pulley. I know everyone loves those low friction rin...

Re: North entity binding on Naish board

yeah sounds weird that a 2016 binding would work. That should also be 6 inches. Anyway, measure it figure out what your spacing is you can go from there.

Re: TwinTip Fin Size Selection

it's all about personal preference. Try to borrow some friends boards that have those fin sizes first see if you like it. 2.25 inches is really really sticky, it tracks hard, 1.5 inches is still pretty tall. I run 0.5 inch fins, but you use what you like.

Re: North entity binding on Naish board

the modern binding space is 6 inches, anything made in the past 2 or 3 years will be at that size, except for one or two cases. I believe your naish orbit might be using one of the older spacings? If that's the case it would probably be at 6.5 inches instead of the modern 6 inch spacing. If I'm righ...

Does all of this conversation pertain to Q-Powerline Pro too?
q-powerlinePro is just thinner q-powerline. so it's actually weaker at the figure 8 knot than regular q-powerline.

Re: q powerline

Q powerline construction is such that it is less sensitve to knotting than the common hollow core braid kiteline widely used. But in my tests I found it breaking at loads far below its rating with any knot. Absolutely. Tests seem to indicate that q-powerline fails are a pretty low load thanks to th...
