Re: When you swim in with your foil kite in the winter and it's soaked.

If you have a smaller space then getting a portable dehumidifier will make a great difference to the speed of drying. (I have a hall with underfloor heating which does the job very nicely, but not the most popular with other members of the household).

Re: Connections O-Rings

Should be fine for that application (looks a bit tight though!) They have a much squarer profile than the flysurfer mini rings (pic below), so I am less sure about using them as line connectors as they *might* cut into the lines

Re: Carbon bike bar with integrated adjuster

Is this roughly how it works? 20191119_173626.jpg Nice idea with the bar ends too. Dear All, I was some days ill at home and had plenty of time to build a new bar. I don't have any sophisticated tools, no 3D printer and the like. So as simple as possible, and I used bike spare parts ordered from Ali...

Nice job! I see you used a sandwich of lighter and denser foams. What was the carbon cloth layup (weight and layers)?

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

How about gusts to 20 knots and above, is it uncomfortable already then? Short gusts are OK but when it is steady I find that the 5m stops working properly at around 20kn. A tip (the upper tip I think) will repeatedly fold in and get stuck for quite a while. Not something that I have seen on regula...

Re: Recommendation on cold weather kiteboarding gloves

Thanks - I didn't find them because was looking for 2mm neoprene gloves. These are polyester, so I am surprised that they work - but at that price it is worth a try for sure.

Re: Recommendation on cold weather kiteboarding gloves

I have cheap Decathlon 2mm gloves, anold pair and new pair, the old have become thinner, but still grab them as long as possible as you nearly do not feel them. these thin "ball handling gloves" from decathlon have a sticky soft silicone stranding all over the palms and fingers, so fantastic grip, ...
