Re: Crap surf fun

Not the best conditions for "surfing", In onshore conditions the waves tend to break early, so you get lines of white water, and not much slope to actually surf on, (depending on size. A short wide Quad would work well. Short so it will be very twitchy, turn quick to snap off the top of any unbroken...

Re: Naish Torque Control Bar issue

Hi riddim1, I had exactly the same problem on my 2018 Naish Torque bar, I thought the chicken loop was fully engaged into the catch, and on launching the kite the loop popped out of the quick release. Soon realised that after sliding the quick release sleeve fully open, and watching the metal catch ...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

Pivot is a great allround/freeride kite which you probably won’t outgrow your whole kiting career. You can jump high with it, you can ride waves. At the same time it is very user friendly. At the moment I am teaching my 14 year old son on mine. No problem. I was about to write something very simila...

Re: boardshop.co.uk wont care

Ridiculous, that's a hand made board, all it needs is another coat of resin on those areas, and then lightly sanded smooth. it won't affect performance, it's basically custom made, machines don't make mistakes, but they also don't add individuality.

Re: Hello all help with rigging wipika air blast

Give it a go, a lot of us learnt on that kit, and we are still here ! not flying it is like saying " I won't ride that motorcycle because it has drum brakes, or I won't fly that TIger Moth/Spitfire because it's a bit old school" That said, I would suggest you first fly it on a low wind day, and have...

Sketch.png The black area us the FCS single box, a new unused one has a 2mm wall around the top surface, remove the old box, try to save as much foam core as possible, make a few vertical tubes using a screwdriver , theses are to allow the resin to flow downwards and attach to the inside of the dec...

Re: Surfboard's FCS finbox is loose from the board, how to fix it, please?

Hi, Will reply with full explanation later, when more time.... A new single or fusion box arrives with a 2mm wall around it's upper surface, this wall protrudes above the surface of the board, it's function is to stop resin flowing into the grub screw hole andfin hole, the resin flows out of the rou...
