Re: Cabrinha kite with ozone bar

I use a Slingshot Sentinel bar with a 2015 Cabrinha Contra 15m no probs, don't know if that's relevant.

Re: Kite surfers with large feet (US13-15). What bindings do you use?

Just curious, what is your foot size? Could your bindings accommodate 1 inch longer feet?
My feet are also long and narrow, about Euro 46.
I think the North NTT's would take 1" longer but maybe not the Naish straps because the heel area is more 'dished'

Re: Depower cleat slips -- any DIY fixes?

I have rebuilt many bars for year and I have never had an issue like that. I use only Amsteel Rope and Clamcleat Racing aluminium cleats. Like this https://seamarknunn.com/acatalog/clamcleat-cl211-mk2-racing-junior-cleat-1-6mm-rope-1009.html Basically that's the same stuff 90% of kite bars use. May...

Re: Depower cleat slips -- any DIY fixes?

What make/model is your cleat/bar?

Try using 5mm Dyneema. 6mm and larger certainly wouldn't grip in my cleat (Slingshot) which shipped with 3/16" (4.7mm) line.

Re: A good 3/2?

I have an O'Neill Psychofreak 5/4 Back Zip which has an overhead flap which keeps most of the water out but because I really hate tight throat fitting suits I still sometimes get a little water in. So when it's really cold I wear a Billabong sleeveless rash vest underneath which traps any water that...

Re: Kite surfers with large feet (US13-15). What bindings do you use?

Also, and can 'X bindings' be used on 'Y boards' ? or do I need to pay attention to this? Is there a rule? or a webpage that references compatibilities btw binding/board brands? There isn't one standard for binding/strap spacing holes on TT's - they are sometimes only a few mm different but enough ...

Re: Need suggestions for new harness

So my harness is wearing out, sticthing in multiple areas has seriously frayed and I no longer trust it. I need a harness that can handle high velocity, high powered moves for a heavy guy. I want a stiff, tight fitting harness that will not move and not go towards my ribs. It will get used hard by ...

Re: What is more dangerous, racing motorcycles or kitesurfing?

I was a closed circuit racer (like Brands, Snetterton etc.). I've ridden around the TT circuit but not in competition I hasten to add - just the thought of riding with WOT through those hump back bridges and flat out corners with stone walls either side scared the living shit out of me!
