Re: DIY pulley line replacement

Thanks for the inputs guys. After a second look, the other 3 lines may still be serviceable, but they're getting pretty rough too. So I took the easy option and just bought the full replacement set. Luckily the pulleys are still good. I'll just be more diligent in the future about cleaning the sand ...

Re: WTB: Contra 17m, Switchblade 14, Moto 9

I just pumped it up and took a bunch of photos, here ya go: https://photos.app.goo.gl/LYa3hY7wDp6z1xMc7 Model year 2018, manufacture date May 2017. Has seen about 30 sessions. Got it for light wind twin-tipping, but after a season of that I learned to hydrofoil so I haven't had much use for such a b...

Where are you located? I've got a 2018 17m Contra in great shape that I'd be willing to sell.

DIY pulley line replacement

Recently noticed substantial wear on one of my pulley lines on my Hyperlink. I guess it's a sheathed line, and the sheath is just gone. I can buy a new set of lines from Ozone for $60 -- https://ozonekites.net/proddetail.asp?prod=ozone2017_speed_system_lines_pulley_lines But the other 3 lines still ...

Re: wind proof top for wetsuit recommendations

I’ve used this for years - it is very thin, windproof and durable. https://www.zhik.com/mens-titanium-top.html Def pricey but it will last years and years. Made for laser and skiff sailing in winter and cold water-where you get really wet and are out in stiff breeze ... sounds familiar Do you wear ...

Re: Question for Axis Tray board owner

I really like the deck pad on my Tray 94. Grippy enough for control, but slick enough that I can shuffle my feet around. Reminds me of the Groove pad, only I think a little cushier. I've put about 20 hours on it so far, and it still looks like new.

Re: Which tipe of board to choose

also make sure your gybes are faultless on a standard strapless first. Well, I'd ignore this particular piece of advice about foiling from this particular guy who doesn't foil. I've never kited with a surfboard, don't even surf, jumped straight from TT to hydrofoil, and learned gybes just fine. Wou...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Hi all you Peak lovers, I´m super happy with my 5 m² Peak4. Now I´m contemplating on getting the 8 m² version as well. The 5 m² works for me from 11/12 kts until maybe 17 kts (75 kg / Moses 633). Will the 8 m² cover 8/9 kts to 12 kts? Would be very interested to hear about your experiences regardin...
