Re: Is strapless overrated?

Yes

Just like foiling, boots, handle passes kite loops, big air, twin tips, surf boards, waist harnesses, no helmets, and kitesurfing.

Check the ebay shop of slav42. I haven't bought anything from them yet, but I've heard some very positive feedback from many folks

Re: Duotone customer service nightmare

If it is the main lower lines I might be tempted to have those made with different lines. I ordered some custom better quality upper lines. I thought an extra v splitter came with the bar? Check the inside pocket on the bag the bar came in. I do find it odd when companies don't respond to customers....

Re: Duotone customer service nightmare

Well I just successfully created an account so it appears to be working. Maybe you have a friend who can try?

I agree that a company should get back to you if you contact them.

Perhaps try to message them through Facebook?

Re: How much tension really is on the lines?

That is a good find. It looks like the green is the main lines and red blue are the back lines. A decade ago I did spend a lot of time pulling things through the water at high speed and measuring the tension on a line. A wakeboarder took 150 lbs force to get them out of the water and 75 lbs force on...

Re: North / duotone click bar auto twist issue

nice catch guys, I couldn't tell from he pictures that it goes through the wrong hole

but i think there is a piece missing too. I think there is rubber piece missing that should go between the safety ring and where the safety line goes through the iron heart. You can see it in my picture above.

Re: North Click Bar Official Unofficial Thread

Has someone tried the low V with the Rebel? I would like to fly it with open v because of self landing. For self landing you can just pull on the red flag line. If it is on the wrong side for you beach, just rig it to the other side. Or just walk up to the vee and pull on the preferred line or simp...

Re: North / duotone click bar auto twist issue

Sorry you also need to look down below where the exposed ceramic bearings are. Since the center line was changed I suspect something was not assembled correctly

Re: North / duotone click bar auto twist issue

As pointed out the swivel is below that blue part and should twist easily with virtually no effort.

My index finger is pointing at it. If you grab the chicken loop and can twist the black pu, the bearings need to be cleaned out.

Re: Kiter killed in New Zealand

No what Toby is saying is if you DO get lofted, just keep it above you and don't try to steer it. 15 or more years ago it was frequent to have kites just fall out of the sky if you flew them overhead. Now they all seem especially steady when straight overhead. I see people do the little jump on the ...
