Re: Switch Lineup

Update: New bladders arrived in just three days. Included was awhole set. Only needed a new strut bladder. A+ in support. To WindJunkie's point it took me just 15-20 min to swap the strut bladder but........ugh! getting the valve to re-seat in the strut was/is a major PITA! I'll ask the warranty dep...

Re: Switch Lineup

Follow up on the faulty bladder/valve issue. Switch sent me a tracking # and the new bladders are on their way. That is a record in my book for resolving a manufacturing problem. Pumped up two of the remaining there new kites and no issue with those.

Re: Switch Lineup

Got a response from the warranty department. They're sending a new set of bladders without any dinking back and forth. I have 3 other new Switch kites in the quiver that I have yet to inflate. Will test them soon. I appreciate the quick and easy resolution of the problem. Though the "issue" gives me...

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 with...

Re: Switch Lineup

Interesting! I pumped up my 16m H3 for the second time today. It lost air quickly! I hadn't crashed it last session and raved here on another thread what a wonderful session it had been. I boat launch so didn't have the opportunity to problem solve. More to come.....

Re: Switch Helium 3

I have a 16m H3 and can only comment on 1 session so far. Had marginal wind to launch(8mph) and am learning to foil. Once up on the board it quickly brought me up on the foil. With apparent wind generated it gave a nice increasing pull which allowed me to park it and ride. In other words it gave me ...

Re: Skydiving instructor/ snowboarder/ wakeboarder Boulder City NV at Lake Mead

Just back from Mohave. Got skunked today which is unusual as the wind apps are generally accurate. I'm not an instructor and IMO it's a difficult place to learn due to limited beach access. We boat launch. That makes learning much more efficient as no "walk of shame". Ignore the tree stump comment b...
