Re: High Y vs Low V bars

Shave, thanks for the info. I do have to ask however, why not put the extra work into the bridle to reap the benefits of a simpler bar layout? Seems like a worthwhile investment to me. My thinking also. IMO not doing this ^^^ is not a technical decision but rather a marketing decision made in order...

Re: 2018 - Cabrinha Kitesurfing

But unlke old cabrinha which I despite, the new gear from them is finally looking clean and simple! No bridle, pulley and springs overload. It looks good! Note my opinion is based just on the short glimpse we got from the video ;) If there are no springs and plastic gizmos it just can't be Cabrinha...

Re: Don't show us your hook

I have used both a ring and rope on my harness (Dynabar). I prefer rope for the increased freedom of movement.

Re: Protection against the sun

Hi ! I had a specialist who told me yesterday I had a pre skin cancer on my face... Be aware that many skin clinics sell expensive chemical treatments for "pre cancer" skin conditions. We all have "pre cancer" skin. You might want to check with a real doctor. Be careful you aren't falling for a sal...

Re: Don't show us your hook

1/4" amsteel has a breaking load around 7700 lbs. That is pretty much the thinnest anyone is using for a slider rope. I have a Dynabar which works perfectly with 5mm Dyneema which (iirc) is also the size it originally came with - minimum breaking load is over 2,000kg (~4,400lb). 5mm is ~20mm2 compa...

10mm Amsteel has a breaking strain of about 10 000 kg. I don't think anyone uses anything smaller.
Does anyone use Amsteel/Dyneema as thick as 10mm when kitesurfing? :?:

Re: Show me your Eyewear

I've got a pair of Seaspecs and also a 'noname' backup pair which were half the price but absolutely identical in every respect. I use Oceanic Nano Tech Antifog on them before I go out. Works fine for me.

Re: Checked baggage dimensions Thomson UK?

^^^ that. We're flying Easyjet to Essaouira tomorrow and they're normally fine with a little oversize or a little overweight as long as you don't look shifty or are impolite. Same with BA, Thomson, and Virgin, but you do have to be careful on the return leg, some airports can be really picky. And as...
