Re: Vacuum pressure for sucking water out of a surfboard?

thx for the suggestions. It seems easier. Per the Board Lady, https://boardlady.com the water will not exit the board by gravity alone. I am assuming you are stating that once you cant see the water coming out if the hole that is good enough and I should just repair it at that time. Eva's focus was...

Re: Peter Lynn introduce the Aero V2

Same issue for all manufacturers now... The kites are not on the Formula Kite approved list and it may be some time before they are.

Thanks for the replies! Can you verify the Garmin will not work with woo 3.0?

Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

I think it was smart of them to just leave the R1V2 alone and wait until there's more of an update to release a V3. They registered/released the R1V3... Its listed on the Formula Kite approved list. Since they cannot change the kite and re-release with the same name, next version will be an R1V4 or...

Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

How did I miss this thread? Let's face it. Both brands are awesome. You cant go wrong with either. Each brand has slightly different specs and feel which make them feel slightly different. Pick the brand which I'd s best supported at your location or can get the best price on or which one you enjoy...

Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

You miss the point like any other flysurfer fan. Ozone makes great kites and results prove it. That's the fact. Just wait until they release R1V3 and see how folks are switching to it. Anyway, this is a really silly discussion. What we should be all happy is the competition between foil brands. Jus...

Re: Foil kites, removing sand from tip sewing?

Very common problem on the Ozone Chrono v1. Frustrated the heck out of me... I found you could shake it to a particular point then squeeze it out but really the better solution would be to sew a small hole on the back edge of the seam.

Once I moved to flysurfer kites, never had the problem again.

Re: Foil kites on shorter lines

One point I did not mention above... In really light winds you can lengthen lines but your kite skills need to be sharp... Nothing worse than overflying the window with long lines - the kite will not fall back in the window fast enough to take up the long line slack.

Re: Foil kites on shorter lines

I have only seen the advantages of short lines (15M-16M) on the race course with high aspect ratio race kites - The Hyperlink is not a race kite. As a new foil kite flyer, focus on learning with the lines that come with the kites. You want to get used to the feel of the kite as it was designed. Shor...
