Re: WARNING: Naish bar secretly wants to slash your face!

Is there enough material on the end of the bar ; to grind that pointy edge off ? Even if it's soft ; it would rip your skin Less, (if it was rounded off ). Bille Agree with Bille re the "pointy edges". That is bogus - no bar should have "pointy ends". Absolutely no reason for it - what were they th...

Re: North Neo 2014

Yes I think that could work although I think neoprene would be heavier than some additional ripstop patches. Personally I think the best solution would be to add the extra patches in the design, just like with the big patch near the onepump valve. Another solution could be to change the position of...

Re: current kite bag style

FWIW, I recently saw a post somewhere (sorry, don't remember where) where a guy supposedly described how to "wear" a kite when traveling by air. Yeah, sounds absurd to me too. Anyone else see this? Link?

Re: Los Barriles

Heading down to Ventana next week. Anyone down there can give some guidance on the wind forecast? Windfinder.com is saying basically calm until later in the week. I spend 5 months every season in the LaV campground. The reason the wind forecasts for LaV are generally low is because they don't accou...

Re: Kite "scuff-pad" material?

You pumping up on glass or something? Rocks and coarse sand - damned abrasive stuff. Only spot having the inadequate material problem is about 1" wide on the trailing edge at the very end of center strut and each strut end on either side of the center. If you're not having this problem then the gro...

Re: Kite "scuff-pad" material?

How the hell are you pumping up your kites where this happens? Pumped plenty of rebels,vegas', and juices to never have seen this. Sand (Oregon coast & La Ventana) and river rock beach (Rufus). Every North kite I've owned had this problem. My new 2014 7m Rebel with only 7 sessions already has holes...

Re: Kite "scuff-pad" material?

I have some NSI Clear Grip Traction material - so will try that first. Seems to stick to the kite - but also peels off easily. Also no idea how abrasion-resistant Clear Grip is. Worth a try I suppose ...

Re: Kite "scuff-pad" material?

tautologies wrote:They have also used 3M kevlar pads with adhesive that works really well.
So, where do I buy "adhesive-backed 3M Kevlar pads"? I've searched high and low with no luck.

Kite "scuff-pad" material?

Anyone know where to obtain the material used by North, Cabrinha, etc as a "scuff-pad" (for lack of a better description) on their kite LE and strut ends? Or the product name and source of a similar type of material? I have 2014 Rebels and unfortunately NKB does not sew a sufficient pad material on ...
