Re: Issues with screw-in "Boston" valve

Cant you get the correct adapter that screws onto the threads of the boston valve? I used to use those push it in hope it stays while pumping type valves then wmfg came out with the adaptor that screws direct to the valve making it 100% leak proof and popping out proof. Now the airport valve on nort...

Re: High Y Bars suck, Duotone, Core, Fone SHAME SHAME SHAME

Unfortunately this is soley because of lack of experience. hate to say it but low v or high v nothing changes much. all of the above mentioned issues are easily mitigated without incident. I do agree that mini 5ths are worthless and dangerous in serious conditions. (epic bar comes to mind total garb...

Re: North Speedster GT Combo

I have this wing.(along with several others :D ) It will do exactly what your intentions are. You can take it pretty low but not as low as say a surf wing. You can still also go fast but not as fast as a higher aspect wing. Its a middle of the road set. The winglets help keep it on track so its pret...

Re: Trying to get into Kiteboarding is this a good deal?

Its a great deal if they are paying YOU 800$ to take it away from them and dispose of it properly. That stuff is old really really old. package deals are tough unless they are kite quivers. The bar is old looks like a old school safety. The harness looks like its from the 80's windsurf conversion, h...

Re: Moto, Evo or Pivot ?

No comment on the flying, but the inflate/deflate on the Pivot will be better than the others. The only disadvantage of the octopus is repairs (albiet a hugely overstated issue). Octopus system is super easy especially if you have a pivot from the last 4 years. One of the easiest kites out there to...

Re: naish pivot question

I'm pretty sure i already posted this. The north trust bar is the ticket on the pivot. 2 adjustable bar throws on the bar! one in the iron heart and the second in the adjustable slider. over extending your throw sucks as you know. Love the naish bar too, but when adjustablity is a must nothing beats...

Re: Naish Pivot

Hey Craz, I'm also using a duotone clickbar with the Pivots (just bought a 2019 9m!) but was told to remove the Y connector so the front lines are 'open'. You prefer a higher split point? And which point do you use as there are multiple options.. I still use my 2015 naish bar with 20m lines in wave...

Re: Naish Pivot

Yeah Love my pivots. I mostly foil but also snowkite. Have a quiver of pivots and have a BTB naish bar. Also use a slider loop and North/Duotone bar. I prefer the north/duotone bar the most. The high Y configuration makes the kites much more stable, forgiving and predictable. Like you said if you li...

Re: Specific grease for Hydrofoil

These are the only products i use on my foil hardware. Never seize and way better than lanolin tefgel. Extreme conditions that have been used in marine environments for decades.

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Reports of the China foils seems to show quality is highly variable. Not surprising! I think the best risk avoidance is to only buy from a seller after getting a positive first-hand report from another buyer. However, I suspect the cheap Chinese knock off market has died off for many of the bargain...
