Re: F1 Diablo bridle check

Thx I'm with you that (almost) any difference between 1 and 3 will be trimmed out. In my case B was 2cm shorter than A and B and is now 2cm longer than A and B (in other words I added 4cm), so I'm exited how much difference I will experience. Report back. Be good to hear your experiences. 4cm diffe...

Re: Safety-/Flagline stuck after releasing on F One Diablo V1 Bar

That knot is not as it should be. Loosen it off and pull it tight again so it's more streamlined as it should be. Basically two larks heads together should be slim. Power lines are connected the same way but do not create this twisted girth at the join. Difficult to explain. But gave no pics. Sorry.

Re: F1 Diablo bridle check

1 and 3 are essentially the same. Any difference in feel will be trimmed out. You'll notice no difference. 2 give a deeper camber. Though very exaggerated on the picture...again you'd probably notice very little difference....maybe a little more grunt but less speed if noticeable at all.

Why are there no inflatable windsurfing sails seen, huh?

Re: Self-Rescue: The big problem with Ram airs

Re: Foil kite vs. inflatable kite

sorry couldn't find it, can I have the link please? Thanks for asking VMAN. Here's the link: Inflatables are vastly superior to ram airs. I've summarised the reasons for the superiority of inflatables: LIFT TO DRAG RATIO (L/D) [/b]Rams have HUGE drag ("D") compared to inflatables for 3 reasons: a) ...
