Re: Beginner and waves - tips?

I am a beginner who started in flat conditions.... I have managed a single successful waterstart on flat water so far..... Dude. Just stay out of the waves. You can barely waterstart and can't even pull upwind. Even little ankle snappers like you're describing can knock you over and give you the ki...

Plus the bungy inside, the tape on the ends, sewing machine rental, and your time :D I'd happily pay $8 for someone else to do it :thumb:
If it included the grey rope thing yeah, but check out the greenhat link. It appears to be just a 10 cent piece of bungie cord with a knot tied in either end.

Re: mystery spare part

^ No. it says x2. So they're a totally reasonable $8. :roll:

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Teflon tape would last about 10 seconds. If they do a good job polishing up the stainless there shouldn't be any significant wear on the rope. I'd totally try one of those. My homebrew bar works great, but I'd love to be able to get a new bar and still have all the lovely benefits of my setup, but w...

Re: Beginner waterstart - where my kite should be?

Dude you already asked this same question in your other thread. Don't start a second thread just because it's a new day. :roll: 4)Imaging a horizontal clock on the water with 12 o'clock facing beach so wind blows toward 12 o'clock. 5) I want to go RIGHT (to 3 o'clock on the horizontal clock). But to...

Re: Waterstart - directions kite and board relative to the wind

Don't even worry about the wind direction, it completely doesn't matter. Even after many years kiting I'm never really sure where the wind is coming from unless I stop to figure it out. All that matters is where your kite is and how it's flying. To water start just sheet in, dive your kite hard to 4...

Re: all kite reviews are garbage. What really matters.

Sorry, Toby. You have no idea what you're talking about. Slow kites are ugly. And so is black. ;)
