Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

I bought the Surf wing, a Ketos 660-1200, and got it today. Has been a Ketos SUP wing for some time, that now will be offered to kitefoils, given the demand from riders. .... 8) Peter Hi Peter, I can’t see these on the Ketos website, only the SUP version with 4 offset holes. Just wanted to check th...

Re: Strutless Kites Cloud vs. Gong

Relative to BRM Clouds as compared to Gong Strutless Kites, I have both Clouds and Gong Strutless Kites. I ride either a Lift Foil or a strapless surfboard (no twintips and jumping for me due to 5 knee surgeries). The Gong Strutless is a fraction of the price of the Cloud and for me, the Gong Strut...

How to build a carbon wing in a 2 part mold?

Ok. I’ve made my two part mold (using this as a guide: http://easycomposites.co.uk/#!/composites-tutorials/how-to-make-complex-split-multi-part-mould-for-composites). Where I’m struggling is understanding. 1. How to determine the required size of each layer of carbon. 2. How to cut carbon cloth to t...

Re: What wood for mast core?

I would go for Paulownia if you can get it, with Western Red Cedar as a close second. Obviously you want to have the wood fully sealed so you get no water penetration. However if water does somehow get into contact with the wood core (eg through a leading edge collision with debris) Paulownia will c...

Re: GoPro post production Horizon Leveling

@ The Captain. Thanks for the response. Gave Horizon Fixer a go but only seems to have 15 degrees of authority.

@ kite_hh. Thanks. Will give it a go.

GoPro post production Horizon Leveling

I'm looking for a method of Horizon levelling in the editing stage of footage from a GoPro session 5. I know there is potential to do this using the metadata stored with the footage but I'm no software geek, so this is currently beyond me :( All I'm initially after is something to smoothly translate...

Re: Balance question - before I get my drill out....

One other point is the front foot hook places your front foot further back than straps would.

Re: vac pump (a fridge compressor) problem

Downunder, I would be a bit cautious about regularly running a fridge compressor ‘dry’ overnight. My understanding is that in normal use the refrigerant provides some circulating lubricant. As previously stated, I periodically squirt some oil in the inlet pipe. To prevent spitting oil, the exhaust h...
