Re: How to repair Naish Octopus female part?

Get rid of Octopus valves. Utterly painful to repair. Just use the depower valve as a pump valve (may need to attach a tube extension with a pinch-clamp), and close off the holes on the bladders and LE. For the LE I use a smooth piece of thin plastic that just covers the area of the strut joined wit...

Re: Kite landboard in bumpy meadow

I was thinking, finding an area covered in long grass (very long grass say 2 foot), and using a twin-tip without fins! :P

Re: 2021 LEI kites for airstyle

Dutone Dice is a fast booster in moderate winds. I live in the dry tropics of Nth Queensland, Australia and most guys here are on Dutones now. 13m minimum but when it gets around 20-25knots, they are really amazingly fast floaty kites.

As said, +2cm to Z. And you may have a look:
Yeah that's the only video that shows how it's done. Thanks. Took me a while to realise he got those differences in measurements from the official line plan but less the lengths of A and Z, etc.

Re: Ozone Chrono v1 - back stalling and sudden power boosts

How much experience do you have with foil kites? 8 years actually :) But I am relatively new to high aspect foil kites like the Chrono. I came from the Peter Lynn Arc days and Flysurfer Speed 3 or older. I only got this kite in the last year and it's been a demon in power that I am not used to. Nev...

Ozone Chrono v1 - back stalling and sudden power boosts

I have a 3rd hand Ozone Chrono 12m that I've been using recently. However, it's exhibiting back stalling and braking when I sheet the bar in. When I sheet out the kite grabs a tonne of power and I am suddenly either airborne or pendulumed underneath the kite, if I don't direct upwind quickly enough....
