Re: Repairing small holes in canopy

for small pinholes just use any tape packing /sail tape (from windsurfing sail) or even ducktape tape holds up well, i used it for a 1 cm rip and a few hole a few years back, held up no problem for 2 seasons, anything that sticks will work, if the kite is new then pinholes will never rip any more .....

Re: Naish octopussy

I realize I'm in the minority on one-pump. When it works, it is indeed fantastic. But I just spent a couple of days of a vacation in November fixing leaky strut valves - a job which would have been much faster / easier without one-pump. It would be nice to have the option to order without onepump, ...

Re: Naish octopussy

Never going back without - had an AIRUSH dna for 6 weeks (cheap secondhand) good kite but hated nt having one-pump and that with 3 struts.... Life is too short to waste pumping up without! Kite surfing involves a lot of time seting up and packing up etc etc....everything that saves me time is a grea...

Re: How good were your lessons?

Never had any....came from windsurfing Started on a big lake after 3 runs going downwind i could stand up and it went from there really. I also watched so many utube vids and was always more than aware of the dangers and safety requirments of the sport. It did help that i could wakeboard and snowboa...

Re: 5th line sucks because

My 5th line was no better than a 4 with regards to safety, thats why i ditched the 5th. My 5th was also the whole line so 24m and sometimes with 10 meter extensions 34m. None of my kites have a high V or Y, i choose to fly more directly with all the lines coming directly from the bar - more direct f...

Re: 5th line sucks because

i had a 5th line on 3 kites i used to own, the kites were quite good, but i hated the 5th line, it was just to much to lay out and untangle, really did annoy me, never had the bow-tie effect though. The 5th line did help to support the front tube (the kites were very soft, i could start in really li...
