Re: New Foam Pad for my Slingshot Celeritas Surfboard

Thanks a lot. All of the sites have something that suits me. I would go for diamonds shape pads.

New Foam Pad for my Slingshot Celeritas Surfboard

Hi I am looking into the possibility of refurbishing my blue Slingshot Celeritas. The original pad is starting to look ugly and I was wondering if anyone has been able to find the original blue/green Eva pads somewhere? I have not been able to find it on the official web nor on any other web. Any su...

Re: Inverted Kite

It has happened to me a few times but not for awhile. I suspect that most of the times it is the pilot's error or pushing it too much. I am no expert but most of the times I have found a way to reverse the inversion without going back to the shore nor punching out. Maybe I was just lucky. What I hav...

Re: Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

Matteo, I know that the sports are very different. I only tried to make the point that sometimes small changes make a big difference and used the examples in windsurfing. After the feedback it is clear to me now that there is no need for me to be concerned. Some time ago I noted the following inform...

Re: Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

Thanks Matteo Geometrically no doubt but in practice? (From windsurfing I know that changing boom height or mastfoot position only by 5mm can make a big difference in performance). I only want to avoid going for the shortening to learn afterwards that I changed the kite character in a point I did no...

Re: Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

Thanks sun, That is exactly the point. Using one bar and having extensions on the larger kite will change the Y or V distance to the kite and according to a post I found North bars keep the line length kite to split constant. Could anyone confirm that this is true; line length split to kite is const...

Shorten Line Length from 24m to 22m

Hi I am going to shorten the lines on my North Quad bar to 22m to use on my North Neo 8m and have 2m extensions on my other kite, the North Neo 11m. My doubt is with shortening the center lines and the effect on the Y and consequently on the kite characteristics. Would anyone here happen to know how...

Re: Anyone else dodging "flying fish"?

I nearly got hit by flying fish a few times at spots on the Canary Islands. You have them frequently on very windy days outside.
(I always hope it was not a shark that made them fly but me or another sailor)

Re: Please measure your line lengths!

May I add another variable to this? Maybe off topic but related. Ignoring for a moment if it is delta shape, C-shape or hybrid shape, the same is true for kite surface area. I once saw a kite from another brand, comparable shape, which was much bigger than mine being in theory the same m2 size! (The...
