Re: The circle of trust

Why don't people wear helmets? They don't weigh anything. You can't see or feel them. They save your noggin and ears. Seems like a win-win to me. I've hit my head on my board, hydrofoil, on rocks on the beach, on the sand. I guess I hit my head once or twice a year. Do people look at me and judge me...

Yet more bullshit, this time from Rita Arnaus

Let's look after the planet by flying non-stop from competition to competition. Please. Stop this bollocks.

Re: Reasons why Toby should delete Climate Change Threads

If you think climate change is the most serious issue facing the human race and you really think that you can do much about it, you have your head up your butt. You are not God. You don’t have the ability to change the climate individually nor collectively do we have that ability as kiters. Kiters ...

Re: Reasons why Toby should delete Climate Change Threads

just make a "general discussion" and/or politics forum.....and then be strict about keeping the politicized or otherwise sullied topics...there. Only in the USA is science politicized ... the land where the environment is politically left or right, you know, just like gravity is 'left' or electrici...

Re: Should professional kiters carbon offset their (many) flights?

Less than 50% of the population fly. Of those who do, less than 15% take more than 3 flights a year. I guess that puts our kite pros in the top 2% of humans who pollute the atmosphere. Should we expect a public commitment to reducing their carbon footprint to zero? That they should publically make ...

Re: Multiple micro bladder leaks?

Big patches? Use soap to see holes (bubble) while in kite. Measure hole position from inflation nipple and strut to give good estimation of hole location. Take bladder out. Inflate inside house. Use measurements to find hole. If not possible use giant patch. I used an LED lamp and shine it from all ...

Re: 2014 Rebel 5th element line lengths

Took the Rebel in today, randomly one of my mates offered to launch the kite so I mentioned that I had lengthened the 5th line. He has ridden Rebels years ago so when i launched he took a look at the kite. He changed my pathetic 5cm extension to about 20cm. This made the kite fly a lot better. Easie...

Re: 2014 Rebel 5th element line lengths

Tune your bar first. I know the actual line lengths are all different because north used all kinds of leaders in their control bars at that time, but if you attach the lines to a post and tune your bar as usual, it should be equal length when you stretch it out at least that's what I remember. I'm ...
