Kite race board rockers

Looking to build my own race board have most of it buttoned up but still futsing around with the rocker. Was thinking 11-12cm at the tip flattening out just infront of the front foot and running straight flat to the tail with maybe 1cm of rocker aft at most. Anyone build their own board who would ha...

Re: Guys I'm really in doubt about what new kite buy.Please help

All 4 kites you've mentioned fly well, are built well (generally - there always seems to be something that will slip through QC every once in a while) and are backed by good reputalbe companies (though some people still winge). Do a pro and con list of the kites for what your looking for ie One-pump...

Re: quad fin setups

I'm using probox PB450Q's on my board at the moment - but it's more a thruster shaped blank than a fish.

Worth having a look through their site the've got some great designs and the guys that run the biz are super helpfull. It's also one of the easiest plug installs going for home builders IMO.

Re: North Rebel lines

There should be an adjuster for the 5th line at the top end of the red spectra section of line that goes through the bar.

If that's not there/good enough, as previously pointed out just make up a little extention.

Re: North bars 2006 - 2007 compatibility

Re: Surfboard Blank Selection

Some of what will define the blank is how your going to build/laminate. If your going to use Polyester resin that rules out an EPS core due to the fact it will melt it. Depending on who your going to buy a PU core from depicts there "grading", if you go a PU core I'd go with a weight that they recom...

Re: North Rebel 2009 – heavy rider issues??

I'm 105kg I've never had a 09 rebel fold in half on me.

Having said that I have had the leading edge do the funky banana on a 12m around the attachement points but that was in really marginal winds and I was pushing the kite pretty hard.

I'm eyeing the 2010's

Re: Screen-printing

What type of bottom/top sheet are you talking about.

I use rice paper in the laser printer at work to put graphics under the glass laminate.

Re: 2010 Rebel and Fuse

Any one know if there going set the Fuse up like the Evo so you have the option to fly it on the 5 line or 4 line bar? CC, nope (has a bridle), whole idea of Fuse is to give people a kite like the Rebel that fly's on 4 lines. North still believes 5 line is ultimately the safest system but wanted a ...
