Re: Research on "High Hook" seat harnesses

Basically the search started because I am trying to improve my stance... A few people suggested that the higher hook would help reduce my "pooh stance" But what made me more curious was reading an article about kitesurfing and the strain it puts on your core muscles and abs... i usually end session...

Re: Research on "High Hook" seat harnesses

I'm curious as why you think a high hook is better in any way. In my experience a low hook near your center of gravity is much better for everything: jumping, wave riding, freeriding, looping, rotations. I know that it takes a few sessions to get used to changes in hook height, but once your muscle...

Re: What sticks to dacron?

Everything stick to Dacron if it's clean and dry. You can repair tears on leading edge with nothing more than epoxy glue and drywall tape... I have seen such repairs on significant tears last many months. But noting beats stitching for a quality and safe job...

Re: Instructor gets caught in lines and drowns after saving students

I was flying my kite at the same time so I bodydragged the **** out of there as soon as I disentangled. The runaway kite then hit another k...

Re: How long do I have on this chickenloop line?

Extrados I presume, but just to be sure. Shoe Goo = USD 10 if you buy outside the US (USD 6 in the USA) 500ml toluene = USD ...
