2015 Bandit Bladder

Hi guys, I was riding today on my 9m bandit in about 28-30 mph wind when the bladder suddenly deflated and the kite fell. After a fun swim in I discovered a rupture in the badder at the end of the wing. Is this hole to close to the seam to patch? Any idea what would cause this to happen? A little di...

Re: My first LW session with the Flysurfer Speed 5 dlx+ 12

Hi guys...not trying to change the topic here but since there isn't a dedicated foil kite page I thought I would ask. I'm very interested in switching over to a foil from my 17m Contra. Can any of you offer advice on switching from a LE to a foil? I've only been kiting for 2 years and launching and ...

To sell or not to sell

Good evening, I've been contemplating some of this for bit and wonder what some of you would do. I currently have a 2015 9m, 2014 12m bandit and a 2014 17m contra. I've been kiting for about 2 years and learned on the contra. Really enjoyed learning on it, thought it was pretty forgiving and have en...

Re: Contra Line Tuning

Crazy there'd be that much stretch...I suppose it'd be worse if this equipment wasn't as cheap as it is :D

Re: Contra Line Tuning

I removed the knots from the steering lines and got the following result: photo (2).JPG photo (1).JPG It looks much better but there is still a little room. Does this look good or should I remove all the knots from the center lines as well? Or replace the pig tails? Thanks Bushfly, when I talked abo...

Re: Contra Line Tuning

Thanks for all the input. FLandOBX: I don't doubt that I could have messed up the reassembly. However I tested the releases after putting it back together. I also powered and depowered the kite several times. I thought that since the ratchet system was working correctly I probably had the assembly r...
