Re: Bridle line replacement

Thanks for the replies...I'm gonna go pick up some 1/8" dyneema and fix both sides of both my 14m and 16m. I'm leaning towards the ronstan ring at fixmykite, but still thinking about it. I'd like to have a redundant setup like that ring or the ronstan orbit pulley. Also, I'm looking forward to seein...

Bridle line replacement

Yesterday, well powered on my 14m I jumped and I felt one weird snap on the way up, then as I was coming down something snapped hard and my kite looped :o Not good, screwed up my shoulder a little I think. Nothing major, just took a good punishment on the water. 1) West Marine has 1/8" dyneema for $...

Global wind website

https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/isobaric/1000hPa/orthographic=-67.15,38.01,671 I bookmarked this website last month and have been playing with it. Pretty cool website. The more you dig, the cooler it is. It has lower level winds, upper level, etc., CO2, dust, bunch of crazy shit. Really ...

Re: Why suicide leash isn't a good idea

Anyone feel that the safety line should be much weaker line than typical kite lines? For instance, let's say you have 600 pound test steering lines and 800 pound test center lines. Would it make sense to have a 300 pound test safety line? I've always wondered if a much lighter safety line was safer...

Re: Primelines has released a coating system that maintains and protects kite lines

OK now I challenge you guys to try it using car wax and let us know if there's a difference. I can't because I use q-power line and the stuff never ever wears out or frays. My last set was 3 years ago and still cannot distinguish from when it was brand new. I may try the car wax, thanks for the sug...

Re: Cabrinha Fireball update

Man, I just love the rope spreader on my dynabar! I specially like it on those times when you are on the beach taking a break or if you have to walk back upwind on a lightwind day. Here is a quick vid of a boost with the spreader bar I'm using...I've never had rib issues: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Boosting with one hand on bar help

I'm trying to work on a simple back hand grab with a solid boost, no rotation. I have no problem doing semi high front/back rolls with one hand, but when going for simple big boosts I have WAY less control of the kite with one hand and can't come close to the butter soft landing. I'm seriously amaze...

Re: Beginner kiteboard package..... am i choosing the right one?

At this time of year and as a beginner, I'd buy the 146 even tho you are light. Forget about the 136 completely. The 136 won't help you at all in a few months when the winds are lighter. The 140 is my 2nd choice, but I'd still buy the 146. It's much easier to learn to hold down power on a bigger boa...
