Re: Depower Lines Wear, Strength, Replacement

Many kite manufacturers use a depower line from Liros called D-Pro that has an additional coating on the Dyneema® to minimize abrasion. Purchase depower line from the kite manufacturer or Liros for the coated version, or from Marine stores (Amsteel) for uncoated versions. Uncoated wears a little qui...

Re: SmartWatch research questions

- On water "walkie talkie" would be awesome paired to bluetooth headphones so you can speak to friends on the water. The s4 has a similar function but that watch is worth so much money, sort of afraid to use it. - Yachting count down timer for racing. - storage for mp3 I know when you load in a gps,...

Re: For an absolute newbie

Tough but doable... Use a big board with the hydrofoil - Enough volume so that it will support your weight standing up. A big surf wing will help you with your water starts. Beyond that, a big kite... A fly surfer soul 18M could be a nice alternative to a big heavy LEI. One back loop of the kite to ...

Re: Q-Powerlines on Flysurfer

Thats the issue with the fly surfer quick release - the hole in the middle is tiny and any line bigger than factory line will not pass through. You can attach the standard 5th line depower line to the q-line via a stopper ball or sew the 5th line onto the q-powerline. I did not bother and just added...

Re: bulk line

Liros only has one USA distributor, Paratour, and they are not really into this side of the biz. I had better luck ordering from a shop in Europe and having them ship it to me.

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Every single kite brand has their issues. When I first started kiting, I expected brand support but quickly found that it was minimal especially for consumables like bars and lines. Thats when my focus changed from complaining about it to doing something. None of the gear I use today is standard ma...

Re: Self Landing Foilkites in 20+kts

Does not happen often... I bring it down the side of the window until the tip touching the beach then flag it out. Ideally the flag line is the lower line. Last time I did this, the kite was well behaved.
