Re: 2018 Spleene High Tech Door - experience?

I don't have any experience with other "door" boards, I only have the Spleene Monster, I'm a fan of it, it gets me out on light days, I've done the odd jump on it but it obviously isn't the best at leaving the surface. It's amazing in chop, we have quite a lot of light wind but choppy days and I tho...

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

Having had time to think I don't think I'd let the name change put me off buying their products, if a 2019 Duotone Evo is as good in my quiver as my North one then I don't really care...but...it's still a crap name, I still think it sounds like a brand of paint or the budget engine in a ford... Duot...

Re: kitesurfing

North's are a high Y where as ozone are very low....I think it would affect the flying characteristics....it would fly, I just don't know how well.

Did you replace the depower too? if so the new one could be shorter than the old one
No I didn't replace that, that was fine. Just the red safety line snapped for some reason.

Re: North Quad bar - Slack safety line

Hey, Beardy. I don't see any problem with your plan, as long as you're simply making the slack line (below the Y) shorter and it doesn't impact the length of the above-the-Y portion of the line. Another idea might be to use a bungee safety line (like Ozone's) below the Y. I have a bungee on my olde...

North Quad bar - Slack safety line

Hello again! I recently replaced my safety line on my 2016 north quad bar (below the Y) it seems to be much longer than the other line (Strong middle line) so it kind of hangs there all limp :lol: Could anyone see an issue with my putting an extra knot in below the red ball stopper to connect it to ...

Small tear in kite

Hi chaps,

When I was packing up the other day I noticed a small (2cm) tear in my canopy, quite close to the leading edge.

What is the preferred method of repair? I was just going to bosh some sail tape on it and be done....good idea or no?
