Re: DIY onestrut kite

What about removable battens? Gong kites have such instead of the center strut, which could be nice and light? Also these could be attached near the trailing edge where the other two struts are in 3 strut kite to prevent flapping when looping the kite etc? In very light winds for foiling you can opt...

What are best wetsuits for winter windy extreme conditions?

What wetsuits do you recommmend for extreme cold weather? I am talking abt zero temps here. I have a good deal (-50%) on 2015 Xcel Infinity X2 6/5mm but before committing, should I pay double for 2017 some other highend wetsuit? I wonder if flashbomb style furry fluffy innerside is the way to go and...

F.One Slice 5'3 - anyone tested it yet?

I am interested in the carbon version of the new Slice, 5'3 preferably. Has anyone got the chance to test it yet? Especially if the 5'3 version has a high board speed and is it overly stiff now due to construction (pure strapless version without the inserts)? Also, when do you expect them to be avai...

North Neo 2017 12m - is it slow turning elephant or quick turning light strapless freestyle low wind kite?

I have 8 and 10 Neo 2017, which I really like for strapless freestyle. My Neo 10m gets me freestyling from around 18 knots (grabless jumps/rotations doable), but how is the 12m? Would I benefit from 12m Neo say at 15 knots, does it have fast board speed and how about the turning? Is it either like a...

Core Section 2 12m - anyone tested it yet? Has the lowend improved from Section 1?

I'm especially interested in the 12m version, but has anyone tested it yet? And most importantly, how's the lowend and what about the jumping potential for strapless freestyle in low winds?

Thanks!

Re: How to make a high Y bar ?

I believe the North Click bar has a system which allows you to put Y in different place on the front lines, sounds like exactly what you are after?

Let us know if you are able to get the part somewhere or otherwise use a similar system like that.

Supplements/food to prevent knee/hip arthritis and keep joints lubricated?

is there any good stuff to prevent arthritis and keep joints "lubricated" - as the marketing gimmicks state it?
Some suggest glucosamine and some ginger, but are there any harmful side effects (to glucosamine)?

Re: Naish Skater 5'2 2016 or 2017 weight, anyone, please?

Thanks Dirk, they say the Skater has better impact resistance compared to Skater Sport, hence my question about the weight of Skater. Also, I would like to know if the Skater is stiffer than the Skater Sport, by means you would notice it.

Thanks again! :jump:
