Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

all it needs is for a fold to be compressed for a weak spot to be created. I could be taking your statement in the wrong way, but if you suggest a crease created by a fold is a potential weak spot,.......Not on any LE I have ever seen. I even have a 2013 Best kahoona that I got off of Ikitesurf (be...

I can see three struts being lighter and more nimble..
I would agree with that. And unless I'm much mistaken (which I might be) kite companies have been developing the 'load frame' principle (loudly touted by Airush) to make canopies more stable.

Re: Strapless board shape?

Thanks all for the responses, really insightful. Just to be clear the board in the photo isn’t mine, it’s just the same as the one I rented. And when I look at the various mainstream kitesurf boards, not many are this shape. I was conscious that the local Cape Verde strapless pros are riding boards...

Re: Ozone Enduro v2 ? are we there yet?

I'm 81kg/178lb and going 6/8/10/12. The 12 is the biggest I'll use on the TT and the 10 the biggest I'll use on the SB (for now). Local beach is open sea and a mixture of flat water/chop/small waves (5' max), side/side on/onshore. Can't be arsed if less than 12 knots or over 35 knots Stacks of wind ...

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

http://www.kiteforum.com/download/file.php?id=81072 From the picture it looks like there's been a point loaded impact (to the left of centre?) which has weakened the leading edge enough for the bladder to blow out and thereafter tear the leading edge following slightly offset weave (weft?) lines to...

Re: Rebel 2018 vs. Core XR5

I'd use an Ozone bar, far more configuration flexibility with a magnetic trim line attachment, and far less expensive. Simples.

Re: Rebel 2018 vs. Core XR5

Wouldn't it be simpler just to make the steering lines longer by attaching, for example, an extra pair of 4 inch pigtails then making the front trim longer to compensate thus increasing 'depower' by 4 inches? It's what I'd do on my setup, or is this more complicated with a Core bar???

Cons:
Needs a longer depower throw.
It's 19 1/2 inches from bar to the small black stopper at the base of the cleat...i don't see the problem there :jump:
But how much trim is there above the cleat?

Total trim would 19 1/2 inches + trim above the cleat.
