Re: 2 Fatalities in Tarifa

I'm not sure I completely agree with this. I don't know any kiter who considers rescue services as their "plan A". More likely they just don't expect anything to go wrong & don't have a plan A at all. I do know kiters that think it is OK to go out in marginal winds and use emergency services as pla...

Re: 2 Fatalities in Tarifa

I have been a commercial fisherman for many years. In my opinion most kiteboarders and people in general do not have enough respect for the sea. I am not criticizing them. It is just an educated observation. The are just not capable of making sound judgement calls. Locally riders go well outside swi...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Only really old cabrinha leashes have the part BRM uses. They’re hard to find. A 3mm stainless eye end cable fitting works fine. Episwiss.com is a source for similar premade parts. They’re expensive though, and look pretty chunky. Somewhere in China there is tooling to make the part, maybe it will ...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Is impact resistance an issue. So far my opinion is that it is not Wouldn't Dyneema/Carbon make more sense? Impact resistance can be double compared to 100% carbon. See the slide from a DSM presentation and here is the full document: https://mega.nz/#!WeZ0VYBD!X-_9i9PmW55CpaFBz88LG-TagYkN1WxP05rnNG7...

Re: making a new control bar

Personal favourite release mechanism is the BRM Cloud system. I've customised mine, but the principle is the same. Really simple, great idea and it works well. No more chickenloop, so you can extend your bar throw if you wish. Or not. The release mechanism is also how you disconnect from the kite w...

Re: WOO consistency

The question is, is your highest measured jump correct? or was there sometimes wrong. Once in a while the Woo measures a very high jump that is not happened, if you don't remove it you do not easily jump a PR. I personally removed 3 ''unreal'' high jumps the last couple of months. A friend of mine ...

Re: WOO consistency

I have not heard that one since woo1 days.. Most complaints are that woo 2-3s are way too generous giving out 40ft scores :-D Just out of curiosity, how do you know that you hit 40.. what were the conditions and gear? what was the hangtime on that 40ft jump? Maybe it's a bad woo, who knows.. mine d...

WOO consistency

I want to be clear that my post is not about WOO accuracy. It is about WOO consistency. I dont care if it measures 3 FT high or low (OK high is better :-)) I have used the WOO 2 & 3. I have worked in industries where judging distances is important. I should be reasonably capable of judging distances...
