Re: Trouble with kite lines

It's not weird at all. You can see the same setup, or similar, on newer HQ kites.

Re: Liquid Force Elite foil

Sergio, do you know if the LF Elite will work well for your swimming launches?

Re: Kite fatality in Thailand

The issue i have is that i keep loosing the knifes. I'ev tried several over the years and various different mounting methods. They all have been torn off and lost in crashes. I'm interested to know if anyone has found a secure method of holding a knife. Knife insurance: tie your knife to a relative...

Re: 5th line necessary to relaunch from snow/water ?

1. It is unavoidable. You have to pay to play. 2. SUP kiting? After you learn with a twintip yes, maybe, otherwise I much doubt it. 3. Snowkite on cross-country skis? Been there done that, but the downhill skis are 100 times better. 4. Do you at least have a trainer? Your best bet at this point is t...

Re: Launching Foil Kites from deep water (with Sonic2)

Sergio, any comments on water temperature? Have you done these launches in cold water? Also have you explored using a small boat anchor? If installed in advance (by swimming), I imagine that a small boat anchor with a floater would largely eliminate drifting downwind; which could be helpful when the...

Re: Put your name on it! Another lost KBHF!

Cheap visibility enhancer: attach a bottle cap to your board. Screw in the bottle tightly before starting. Have pliers ready at the end, to unscrew the bottle.

Re: Looking for Advice on Winds for My 11m LEI Kite

For me 11m LEI works between around 4-15 mph on snow, depending on the surface. If over 15 mph then 7m LEI, usually. Foil kite - yes but only if your winds are clean. If very gusty then better stick to LEI. Sizing charts and permutations: you'll just have to try and see what works for you. Be ready ...

Re: Smallest Chicken Loop Serie

The problem with those is you must already have a Slingshot / North bar. If you don't, good luck trying to buy a reasonably priced QR.

This one might fit your requirements.

Re: Saved by the wrist strap

I tore both wrists badly from too many all day sessions, excessive bar pressure combined with some acute injuries. Soft tissue injuries can heal very slowly. ........ Thanks. Your experience sounds extreme. I am aware of all of these options (and also those mentioned in prior posts). The strange th...
