Re: WHAT 3 to 4m KITE FLIES THE BEST ?

Last years Element 6 by Switch came in a 3m and 4m size, and currently they are still available new, $445 USD. I have both (and the 5m), use them for foiling in high winds (20+, surf wing, 150lbs), and have no complaints with how they fly and their construction.

Re: Grinding hook off spreader bar and replacing with soft ropeconnection. Anyone done this?

I took the same spreader bar and cut off the hook, leaving the 'pull down strap' part. Prusik knot with three wraps on either side to attach a BRM style attachment. Multiple wraps on either side keeps it centered and no frictional wear from sliding. Couldn't be happier.

Re: Ultralight vs standard foil kite degradation

Is there a difference in how different fabrics stick to water? A fabric that is more hydrophobic should be easier to relaunch, and shake off wet sand easier.

USA: PL Synergy Twinskin, 15m

$412 Kite only, no bar. Very good condition, no rips/tears/repairs. Water proof zippers are functional and not sticky. Comes with stock aluminum spars and great bag.

Re: Have you tried kiting with 120m lines? This guy did!

On the dry lake bed in the summer (kite buggy) really long lines in the evening/night allow you to get the wind that is still blowing up high. No wind at ground level, but +10mph will still be up high. Surreal experience to have you lines sing in the absence of feeling any wind when stopped.

Re: Small Carry Strap for board after self rescue?

I rest the mast on the impact vest over my shoulder. Not great, but easy to change shoulders.

IMO, having to walk such a distance (if not on sand) is about having sandals. I potentially see using something like https://tinyurl.com/svsejly to carry some sandals.

Re: Traveling with Lift 170

Yes, there are two additional screws that hold the tail in place. Saw that in a picture at Real, https://www.realwatersports.com/products/kit-lif1917040

Re: Theft Story? Tell Yours

Over time I've dialed in exactly what I am willing to leave on the beach. Kite bag and sandals, maybe a hat. Had a bag of stuff stolen long time ago, fool me once...

Re: New hydrofoil / wave kite and bar: Kauper-XT

It's been a while since I've bought a new bar; what is the purpose of the tubing? Does the bar slide easier, less line wear, just a more tidy setup, etc? Thanks

Re: Peter Lynn Nova

Agenda? Sorry if sharing my experience comes across as an agenda and counter to your experience flying both kites. That assumes you have flown both. I didn't make the rediculous stability video. That's on them... EDIT: seeing that you sell PL, I'd say you have an agenda. No brand affiliation on this...
