Re: Sling Shot Space Skate 65 info?

I had a wing a couple of years ago that I bought used that had a similar split I glued and clamped it with PL Premium which is a moisture cure polyurethane paste glue. It did a great job and it can be sanded and painted. It seems like an easier way to fix it to me. It worked great until I sold it. A...

Re: Sling Shot Space Skate 65 info?

Here is picture of my setup. I did not install the mast but laid it roughly where it would go. You can see the mark from the mast on the fuselage. I have seen quite few guys where I kite with this wing and all of them use it with the mast in the wing. Having tried both, I much prefer it on the fusel...

Re: Ideal wing size for learning?

The first time I used my 1534 cm. I could not keep it in the water. I then went back in and moved the mast up into the wing and it was easy to use and very balanced. So I suspect you just needed to change the way it was set up assuming your can be changed.

Re: Sling Shot Space Skate 65 info?

I have one of the original blue ones and like it. I use it with the mast on the fuselage not in the wing. I like it better that way. So I would say definitely fix it. It is heavy but I only notice it when carrying it.

Re: Huge board, huge wing, small kite

I totally agree Peter. Even my smaller board is large by most people's standards. I sold all my smaller boards.

Re: Huge board, huge wing, small kite

Your post inspired me to try something similar but half the the volume. I bought a Slingshot Skywalker 5'10" by 21" with 51 litres of volume. The idea would be for two situations: very gusty winds that are strong then quite light and really light winds. In really light winds the volume of the board ...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

The following is the information regarding the different settings directly from Ben. These are exactly his words: The photo number 1 is regular, the number 2 is a bit more rapid and less on the harness, the 3 you lost a bit in the low end and the kite is more light, 4 is not for all kite but some si...

Re: Can I still use an old Concept Air 6m Wave?

I would suggest that you do not set the kite up with a four line bar. If you feed the middle line through the bar then all the weight will be on your arms rather than on the harness as the outside steering lines have most of the power on them. I would just use the kite the way it was designed. The m...

Re: Can I still use an old Concept Air 6m Wave?

The middle line is not connected to the chicken Loop. It is just connected to the bar and the leash runs from that line up higher to your wrist or whatever you connect it to. There is no chicken Loop it is just a quick release harness line that attaches to the bar.

Re: Can I still use an old Concept Air 6m Wave?

I still have three of those kites. I definitely would not use them on water now, not that you can't it just has very limited range. I kept them around to teach people snowkiting. If you cut the one-way valves out of them it makes ground handling on land much easier. I can think of no reason why you ...
