Kite pump

Re: Duotone surfboard fins

well I've got a duotone board and also some futures fins and they are NOT compatible. The base on the north fins is 4mm deeper than the futures (so you get a big "hole" when fitting the futures). Futures are designed to be screwed on the front. Duotone from the side. The problem with that is that mo...

Duotone surfboard fins

Their fins do not appear compatible with fcs or futures. So when a fin breaks you are stuck unless there's a duotone shop nearby! Which could be a real pain! Has anyone worked out how the fin boxes could be made compatible? Why do duotone do this, other than to fleece their customers with expensive ...

Re: Airush wave 7m blew out!

I'm 12 stone about 75 kg. The kite was about half depowered. I did check the lines after and the steering lines were about one inch longer so pretty good. Do you know if I could have done anything to put it right while still flying it? Cheers....

Airush wave 7m blew out!

Was kiting today in some pretty strong wind. Came to shore and my kite sort of blew out ie lost its Shape and sort of went flat in the wind. Had to leash out. Bladders pumped solid and bridle looks OK. Anyone else experienced that? Was very windy. I think about 40 knots although not surr

Re: attach carbine hook to spreader bar

Thanks Dazarter looks great. Yes I've had a few accidental unhookings. What did you do with the spreader bar? Did you cut the hook off or is the hook under the pully? How did you attach the line either side? Is that a Brummel splice one end?

Cheers..Bill

Fed up with my donkey dick and want to attach a carbine hook or something similar to the spreader bar, so I can clip in/out easy and not have it come out unintended (which occasionally happens with the donkey dick). what's the best knot to use to get a tight fit to spreader bar? Could use a metal at...
