Re: Hand Sewing Ripstop Nylon

Sail tape and hand stitching is fine by me. Have several kites I fixed this way, no issues for years/scores of sessions. The resale value to zero thing is a bit of exaggeration O believe. But I might not buy a used kite via internet with this kind of repair. Still would if I could see it and inspect...

Re: Armstrong Foil is junk

Fasteners are about the system and its application from design/materials through maintenance and assembly/daiassembly. No magic metal or design. A friend took apart the steering gear in a 30 yr old sailboat this summer and said he was surprized no problems because it was all aluminum - gear, bolts, ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I don’t even have a peak but it seems like a cutback from toeside is “automatically” sharper than the other way. Regardless of kite, if too much slack is happening, you need to do something to prevent it before the cutback - move the kite or fly it in a different spot in the window. Or make your cut...

Re: Foreigners going to Brasil please read

...But those country will be more immune like the European countries in the near future. Where does it state that people will become immune once they have had covid? To my mind, it's very low % who become immune, hence mass infection/immunity won't be a solution?!? It is a coronavirus. genetic drif...

Re: Pocket Razors

Tom these look cool! Do they spring back from the rocker? What rocker are you using? I made last year a 140ish board of a sheet of 20mm corecell, had to use heat to form it to about 13cm rocker but got no springback. Used a “sauna” technique: pouring hot water onto towels on top of blank in rocker t...

Re: Favourite surfboard for choppy powered up conditions, but still small waves

I deal with short steep chop often and aside from a foil, my diy BRM paipo is my favorite. Not a true surfboard ok, but the flex makes the chop much easier to handle. After a downwinder through washboard chop for 3 miles, I was ready to go again, while others’ legs and back were aching. Not sure how...
