Re: LE bladder wear by elastic bladder retainer inside tip (Ozone)

Ok understood re the sand inside abrading the bladder when deflated and packed down; I had naish kites before with same Boston valves but no problems, although I soon switched to ozone so maybe I didn't have them long enough. So the slow leaks may be Boston related or retainer related - I will chec...

Re: How To Self-Land a Kite in High Winds

Self landed my 6m in 30 knots yesterday (nobody else around). As usual used maximum trim, flew low to the edge of the window until the wingtip rested on the sand, then pulled rapidly on the top front line while walking quickly towards the kite. Often goes tits up over 20 knots so I was very surprise...

Re: What's the best thing about kite surfing?

Down the line frontside in head high+

Not fussy what plank I'm on or how I got there, when going downhill on water I just become one with the ocean and our beautiful planet.

Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

For the reasons below, I believe the Cloud Connection System to be the safest of all: 1) Option to fully disconnect with 01 step only. 2) One single front line system. 3) More depower, because the bar is closer to the body ( Does any other system has 72cm of travel to sheet in/out?) Unless the OP's...

Re: How to self land core sensor pro bar

Currently blowing over 30 knots so I'll be out today, probably by myself. Self landing in anything over 20 knots can go wrong very quickly. If it looks like the self land will go wrong I go straight to safety, but I'm lucky having a sand beach to launch and land on so there's normally no damage to t...

Re: Nick Jacobsen injured

Recovery times can vary hugely. Broke my left fib when I was crushed while wave sailing a large(ish) wave and didn't manage to get my front foot out of the strap before it broke on me. Sailing back to shore with a broken fib was fun. Not. But my wetsuit kept stuff roughly in place. Told by the hospi...

Re: Nick Jacobsen injured

Depending on where and how his fibula is broken it will typically require plating, or a cast or splint, or if broken in just the "right place" a surgical sock and a pair of crutches.
