Re: Where can I find valve spareparts for old F-One Bandit?

I had the same issue, even with F-One replacement valves the same things happened. Total shit show. I fixed them countless times and eventually gave up and bought North. If I were to try again I would use North bladders or North valves, they are much higher quality. F-One valves on old kites are jus...

I don't want to be weird and gross ... But did she get bigger boobs this year? She was out of the water for a month or two in the spring, and now most of her Facebook is skimpy tops. Just wondering.

Re: How do you seasoned riders think about when to refresh kites?

My mates give honest reviews of their kites. When they are impressed (e.g. the new rebel is a real step up in performance) then I start to think about it.

And like edt said - valves suck. When one goes, they all go.

Re: Carrying your inflated kite up the beach. With Bar, lines, and board

When the tide is out we wind up our lines, then push a finger between the lines and bar, then use that hand to hold the kite upside down. Board under other arm. Walk up beach.

My brother will hold bar and lines with the board, but that requires effort which I am alleric to.

Hate to break it to you but its not the kite.

1.5mm dyneema pigtails?

I fucked up. I bought 1.5mm dyneema for pigtails not realising quite how thin 1.5mm is. It seems thinner than my actual kite lines.

Can I still use it? It's unsleeved...

Yes, it will leak too.

You need to close the locks on the tubes, then the strut only will leak, that has a hole.
I had an RRD Obsession that had a hole in the tube. That was hard to find.

Re: Slingshot Rally 2016 centre strut keeps blowing

How much pressure? How much experience do you have kiting? Are you crashing your kite LE down a lot?
