Re: Replacing Kiteboarding Lines

Mackiteboarding has many pairs for sale. Also 4-line sets. If I break a line, I would always replace the pair at an absolute minimum, but usually wind up replacing all 4. If one line breaks it's an indicator that the others have also experienced significant wear and are ready to go too. And, when on...

Re: What new tricks to try?

I'd REALLY nail down the darkslide, jesus walk, and the various flavors of aerial loop transitions both surface and sent.

Two pounds of buoyancy would make a big difference with a kite that only weighs 2.8 lbs like the BRM.
Kind of what I was thinking about.

Not really practical, but a fun stunt for the youtube. Just seeing if it's possible to foil in 4kts of wind or something equally dumb. :jump:

Inflating Kite With Helium?

So, and this is totally dumb and/or impractical, but has anyone tried inflating their Maui Cloud or other light wind kite with helium or hydrogen to explore the real bottom end? Would make a great video for the light wind foil guys out there. I'd totally do it, but my biggest kite is a 10m and I don...

Re: Drag launch tips, line tangle

I haven't considered rigging up upwind. :o Not to bash you, but this is really frightening. Beach conditions permitting it's MUCH easier and safer to rig upwind. Scary that instructors are only teaching downwind rigging. By laying out upwind you greatly reduce the chances of getting tangles, pickin...

Re: Drag launch tips, rear line tangle

Don't rig downwind with the lines behind your kite. Rig straight upwind in front of your kite. Then lift the kite over your lines and move about 20' or so across the window. So if the wind is coming from S rig with the kite at N and your bar S. Then lift the kite over the lines and move it to ~NE ma...

Re: Slingshot screamer or angry swallow

Maybe PM Tautologies. I think he has or at least has ridden both. It looks like Naish made some effort to get the bottom contours on the Skater correct which is what makes the Tomo's so magic. The Skater would definitely be my top contender if I didn't already have a VG.

Re: Slingshot screamer or angry swallow

If you plan on strapless the VG is really the only board to consider for your situation and weight. Grab a 5'2" and be happy.

Re: Slingshot screamer or angry swallow

Are you planning on riding strapped? That's really the only reason to consider those boards over the much lighter FW Tomo's.
