Re: Aaron Hadlow Twenty Part V - UK

Hehe. My home spot. That surfer in the shallows at the beginning is me.
Aaron was ripping it that day when nobody else could stay upwind.
I stopped surfing and just sat and watched once I realised who it was.

Re: single skin variable size kite Aeros S1 Duo

Interesting in a single skin, but not exactly a new concept. http://www.spidertraction.co.uk/Modulus.htm Where’s the true innovation gone in kiting? All the kite companies jumped on the foil wing band wagon when someone dragged one of these out of their shed and tried it on a foil. https://theawesom...

Re: Bars with PU tubing

Yep, had depower rope snap on me inside pu tubing. No sign of wear, no sand or anything in there, and it snapped halfway up, nowhere near any area that might promote wear. So I have now changed to a standard, 2 line, no tubing bar.

Re: Edje 15m or zephyr17 for light wind

I had a 15m edge and thought it was a dog...light wind specific is the way to go... What year was that? I’ve gone from a 17 strutless to a 15m V8 edge. The edge is way better. It’s easy to fly, launch and relaunch. I’ve maybe lost 1 or 2 mph from the low end but it flies upwind and has a much bette...

RRD Vision MK1 7m bridle line length

I snapped a pulley line on my 7m today.
Does anybody have original specs for the pulley lines on the bridle?
I’ve got the ones on the other side of the kite I could copy, but they may have stretched/shrunk over time, so would like original length if possible.
Cheers

Re: Why there are no 135 by 50 TT boards?

My first board was a Lost Cause from 2007/08 I think. (lostcauseboards.com) . I think it’s 137x50. Worked great as a beginner board and still my go to board in light wind. It’s super light with just a foam core and fully glassed rails. Not much rocker but a big scoop of concave in the middle. It nee...

2020 — Pumpy is going to pump and stump for Trump. :thumb:

P.s. not trying to start a political debate, just like how Pump rhymes with Trump.
And also funny how both are euphemisms for hot air coming out of someone’s arse (or ass)

Re: Why two regular shaped twintips?

I learnt on a big wide old lost cause board. 140x48. This is now my low wind board and can ride from 8 knts. My normal board is 135x40. Even though the lost cause is not long, it’s all about the width. Probably drops the low end of each kite by 3-4 knts. With a 17m and a big wide board there’s no ne...

Re: WOO 3: Who has received it ? You Order date ?

I had the turning off issue at 100% battery. Firmware update sorted that, but now my battery always states that it’s 100% no matter how much I’ve used it. Very annoying cos I have to remember to charge it after every session just in case.

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

A couple of years ago round here, (Cornwall, UK) it seemed that everyone was trying foils, but now there’s only a couple of guys on them regularly.
However, we do get waves more often than not so the proportion on surfboards is fairly high, but TT’s rule.
