Re: Who has Crazyfly kite? Are they durable ? How is the quality?

I think the quality of CF kites surpasses most of the big brands, but then again I'm not too fond of the so called quality of most of the bigger brands. Haven't flown them yet though. Maybe this year.

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

edt has it right. It’s the most difficult branch of the sport. Most people don’t have the time to progress in it, and the vast majority even if they did would find that there is quickly a level beyond which they cannot progress, and where the risk of injury becomes increasingly high. Anyone who has...

Re: Kite Manufacturing - free feedback

Cabrinha doesn't have webbing on the closing seam? Only insignia cloth like most others. They do have webbing on the bending part of the struts however. Don't you mean Switch? They're one of the few that have webbing on the closing seam. Good luck getting that seam to fail btw... I've seen more fail...

Re: biggest regret purchase

2012 F-One Acid. Too small even in the biggest size, weak fins (they still use em) and the bottom looked like crap after just 2 sessions. The footpads were crap at that time too, because they were 2 parts glued together, and they separated right at the heel. They changed that with the newer verions ...

Depends where the stitches are. On my Edges both side of single zigzag is gone on places. And I never self launch.

Re: Kite Manufacturing - free feedback

Canopy has to be sewn to the leading edge using triple point not regular zigzag, come on people. :roll: So Switch is doing two adjacent passes of 2-point zig-zag for their canopy-to-LE seam, which is kind of like doing a triple-step / 4-point except leaving out the stitch in the middle. Seems obvio...

Re: New Switch Kites Helium3 only days away :-)

I'm a 100kg I need a 15m single strut that will stay up there in the lull in 4 knots I can ride in around 5 or 6 knots on my foil but my GTS LW 15M will fall form the sky even if I keep it moving.
