Don't set your shit to go off....Tone wrote:I will set my quick release to go off unexpectedly the next time I kite, and I will get back to you with the results. It has happened to me in the past where I did hold on. But thank you for your thoughts
Yeah I think I might have an anger management problem. But thanks for the respect.jeromeL wrote:By the way I often respect and approve of your comments and suggestions, you are just easy to set off when someone disagree with you. It's all good.
You know most of the surfers I have met have been complete assholes, especially a lot of the shortboarders. Which I can see where they are coming from. In california just about everyone surfs, and the majority of them are begginer longboarders who don't know proper surf edicate. And if a bunch of tourists where in my local area stealing my waves or hanging out in the middle of a riding area I'd probably be pissed too. There was one guy in North Shore who snaked a local, and he got his ass beat out in the water. And when he got back on the beach, they beat his ass again.edt wrote:well now we all know where you got your attitude from. What the f--- is wrong in Hawaii? You would think they would be chill sounds like gang war. I am reminded of that rat study where that guy studied overcrowding. At first the rats were peaceful lived in harmony but as the population rose they became more vicious until at the end it was cannibalism and war.

Now I am willing to offer a peace offering for everyone in here, and forget anything that was ever said or done with a nice fresh clean start. We need to start putting our differences aside and start seeing what we can do to make kiting better. It's like Abraham Lincoln once said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
Have a good day
Same for me really, i love their swivel, its fantastic but the twist should be harder, it comes off far to easy now so i hope they can fix that in the future. or preferably go to the push release, that would make me worry free. In any case its quite rare that it does, just always something i have to think aboutDaversj wrote:That crash looked painful. Thankfully the kite wasnt screaming toward the water, it would have hurt much more. Ask me how i know.....
I have a few Ozone kites which i love, but their donkey dick is limp and to frequently come unhooked. I wish they would fix that.
Most of time when it unhooks i am able grab the the chicken loop quickly, let go of bar and hook in, then regrab the bar without the kite hitting the water. Simple stuff everyone deals with at some point. Unfortunately, i have gotten very good at it. Not sure i could get it done while in the air. lol.
If i were at the apex of the jump i am prety sure i could hold on during a release. A release on the way up would likely result in it being ripped from my hands, and i have a GI JOE Kung Foo Grip. Lift off is between 2-4Gs of gravity. If my well practiced grip were to hold a sudden release, my arms would likely come out of the sockets.
Never had a surprise unhooking with a cabrinha chicken loop. They have a very stiff donkey dick.
The Core chicken loop release isnt conventional or intuitive and that is a bad thing. I love how well their swivel works but not a fan of the twisting chicken loop. The detent that prevents spinning of the release isnt very strong. Like was said before, it seems like the purpose of the design was just to be different.
