Re: Re-coating kite with Shoe Goo: incredibly easy and effective!

Thanks for the tip. What is the cost of the 2 elements (100ml tube of Shoe Goo and 500ml Toluene) ? Did you apply the the liquid on the intrados or the extrados of the kite ? 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 ...

Re-coating kite with Shoe Goo: incredibly easy and effective!

So after recent few threads about re-coating kites I decided to give it a try and I was really surprised by the result. Bottom line: super-easy and very effective for porous canopy. Here's the long version: 2012 Northtone Rebel 8m. Used most weekends between 2012 and 2017, then retired because canop...

Re: Drowning doesn't look like drowning

A couple of days ago, Mrs Weetabix pulled a drowning kid out of the pool. His mom was only a few feet away, but he wasn't making a sound, and she didn't realize that there was a problem until Mrs W had him out of the pool, coughing up water. Take a look at this article . What I found particularly s...

Re: what type of control bar is this?

2016 Cab bard are under safety recall (Google it). Make sure you get the correct replacement part from the seller and you should be OK! As I recall one front line was cut by the stopper after 2-3 sessions, resulting in deathloop.

Re: Dutone Neo sizing

On a surfboard, it really depends on your skill first, and board rocker/volume next. A skilled rider on a light wind surfboard can have great fun on a ridiculously small kite.
