How did you get the kite on the beach safely?

Re: How does your bar handle center line Twists?

I lucked into a liquid force 2013 bar with its swivel from buying an NRG from Dracop....IT WORKS...I spent 2 months looking for another one and found one. Now I have two bars with LF swivels that work 95% of the time. When I notice it not working, I spray it with silicon lubricant and it is good for...

foil vs lei longevity and self repairs

I bought 3 LF NRG's b/c I like to jump and chill :D I could see myself in a foil kite in the coming years as I now know what tricks I can do and not do without crashing my kite. What is the longevity b/w a new LEI vs a foil if both are cared for properly? Also, for instance, I had to splice and repl...

Re: Safety Alert: Cabrinha 2017 Power Bracket Seat Replacement

Man, this looks challenging for a beginner. Is this an abrasion over time issue like the switch swivel issue, or a kink that could occur during line slack and reload? Was the red plastic ball not sufficient? It looks like they replicated the stainless steel piece into another plastic piece. Kudos fo...

Re: Let’s Make Kitesurfing Safer… There is an Easy and Effective Way!

I know this thought may not work for every teacher making a living, but if I was teaching I would make it mandatory that all my students do a video classroom with me and other beginners...at the worst I would have a private video on youtube they would be required to watch a few times before a lesson...

Re: Q

Now I make my own Jerry Brown 800lb linesets and the difference for a heavy weight rider is huge. No more rubber band linestretch that even Q-powerline gave me. I splice these and go through a pretty rigorous stretching routine on them that takes some time. Matteo, Instead of going thru the process...

Re: Not having much fun Learning to Foil

I finally break down and buy a foil, and now I am reading more negative stuff in the last month than the last two years...WTF :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: Matth, I think a lot depends on your conditions, foil, and foil board. For some reason I really feel my setup is the worst to learn on and...

Re: Boring pump question

I may be buying one of those industrial pumps for my 17m this summer. My honeymoon with kiting is still strong except when I'm taking my 17m out for sunset. I'd rather just look at her and have her ready to go now :remybussi:

Ragzilla, any link to a Shinn strap, I'd like to look at them?

Re: Timing high frontrolls vs backrolls
