Re: Global Kiteboarding Population

Interesting that result on google trends. Try putting in other sports - Skiing, Snowboarding, Surfing and they all show the same downward trend as kitesurfing. Why?

Re: Switch Bag Any Good?

The zips will probably still go on those North Face bags eventually with the salt and sand. I've never understood why manufacturers bother with zips on kite bags. A fold over flap with clips or a drawstring make much more sense to me. Right now I have a heap of North bags with broken zips which are ...

Gaastra Flash - or other directional recommendations?

I'm looking to get my first directional and spotted these very cheap but don't know if it is suitable or not.. are they cheap for a reason? I will be riding in onshore waist to head height mushy waves, usually in strong wind and most likely strapless. I weight 65kg and at least with twintip, tend to...

Re: North Quad Bar 2015 pulley recall?

I quick follow up question on the replacement ring as seen here: https://www.northkiteboarding.com/blog/?id=5inXQlVh0yItSZ3l_RRrvg Would it make more sense to convert it so that the other front line with black pigtail becomes the flag out line?

North Quad Bar 2015 pulley recall?

I guess this is a question for Dan at North really but someone else may be able to help too.. I recently found out about the recall for the metal block on the 2015 Quad bar - recalled as it caused excessive wear to the front line passing through it. I picked up the replacement ring and swapped it ou...
