Re: Best bankrupt?

There is a significant portion of kiters who don't buy into the latest hype. Therefore, Best could just keep updating colors on their 2015-16-17 TSs and Rocas ad-infinitum, and people would still grab them for a bargain price. I bet all kite vendors&manufacturers felt quite a pain last year during B...

Re: Alu mast (strut) with 3 bolts - standard?

Load on mast to mount at board is highest load so if you have 3 positions to put a bolt then why not? That is why competent manufacturers reinforce mast plate with a collar: http://cdn2.bigcommerce.com/server5200/cam6oqe/products/3689/images/12019/LF_Mast_Collar__98153.1490637921.1280.1280.png?c=2 ...

Re: Eleveight kites

But after x4 I'm certainly not going to buy kites with fckng old "x1" material from 10 yrs ago. What is this, did ripstop manufacturers hired some gillette designer? Certainly, one can have one thick thread which would be stronger than your puny 4 threads. If there were no advancement in material c...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Planet getting “greener”? Not in my world. I see everyday many native tree species here in Pennsylvania being wiped out due to changing climate and the associated outbreaks of pests in areas they never inhabited, and/or pollution in general negatively impacting ecosystems. You should see how green ...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

...Parts of his point still stands, that this planted is getting over-populated and we'd definitely be in trouble if every one consumes and pollute as much as we do in the western world... Planet is not getting overpopulated. Japan has negative population growth. China and India birth rates has fal...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Agreed, doing something comes at a price, is inconvenient. Societies becoming irrelevant/extinct because they are trying to do something about climate change is taking it a bit far I think, unless those societies would take extreme measures. One could easily argue the opposite. The same argument co...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

...The greenhouse effect has been well understood for over 120 years and we know what the consequences of unabated greenhouse gas emissions will be. Yes it has been understood for that long. However, the views that were expressed by the greenhouse effect discoverer -- Svante Arrhenius -- don't supp...

Re: Dealing with Foil Caught in Bar

Happened to me once last year. When trying to release the board kite started looping, and I lost control. Luckily it hit the water after few rotations. Made me to revise my learning strategy. First, the less number of times you fall, the less chances it might happen. The easy slow riding foil is inv...

Re: fuselage fabrication

Can somebody please clarify this "galvanic corrosion" idea that I hear over and over again? For any current to flow there has to be a potential, and what is the source of this potential? Is it coming out from nowhere, defying the law of conservation of energy?
