Re: Ultra V2 or Nexus?

Ozone Alpha might be worth consideration too.

Re: Fireball with slider bar question

the clearance of the original piece is even smaller than the one I'm using. I'm not sure to what are you referring to...Further 316 inox I think it's strong enough. Would I recommend this set up for big air? NO. Would I recommend for waveriding? Absolutely yes. Honestly that Wichard swivel shackle ...

LF MaxFlow Valve Leaks After Tomahawk

I've run in to this problem 3 times now, where I screw up and tomahawk my kite in to the water then a few minutes later my kite starts jellyfishing and I need to come in and pump up. This has happened to me on 3 different LF Solo kites, a V1 and 2 V2's. At first I figured it was because I never real...

Ok, just an update and thanks for all your help. That bar was unbalanced by about 8 inches at least....fucked up.
Just so you know, 8" is 20 cm and that is pretty much 90% of the trim of a standard kitebar. So if it really was out by that much, that's scary.

Re: Fireball with slider bar question

You guys are seriously endangering yourselves with those setups! There is no where near enough space for the folded latch of the fireball QR to safely pass through those setups. Also stay away from your local hardware store, you need marine grade stainless. This is what I would recommend: https://ww...

Re: Boracay set to reopen. But did they ban kitesurfing?

Just read an article stating: Among the new restrictions: - A ban on beachside drinking, smoking, bonfires and barbeques - A prohibition on pets, umbrellas and beach chairs - No more water sports, including jet skiing, kite-boarding, and for the time-being, scuba diving - The closure of the island's...

Re: Kite for light wind - Recommendations

Get a 1 strut kite if you want a real LW kite.

Re: PSA: Check your harness - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

I had the webbing stitching rip clean off on my Dakine Nitrious harness but thankfully it uses 2 straps to hold the spreader bar on so I was able to ride to shore on the remaining strap. Dakine was very helpful in replacing the harness at no cost too.

Re: Crap surf fun

I'd be curious to know the weight of the Performer 5-6 if you could weigh yourself holding the board, then weigh yourself and subtract that to get the weight of the board. I was skeptical of the Performer 4-10 being too short for myself (75 kg / 165 lbs) but I can assure you it's not. Np on the boar...

Re: Blade Kites

I used to fly a quiver of Blade Triggers and was happy with them. I've since moved on to LF Solos and am happier with them though. The Trigger is: - a kite that likes to be actively flown, not park and ride - great low end if you are willing to work the kite, my 10m Trigger could match my 12m Solo (...
