I had a look today, Obsbot looks nice!
But only up to 40 m I read...and since it doesn’t work with a tack to follow you I assume it would loose me when I go upwind.

I wrote to them, let’s see if they reply...
Toby, did you ever get an answer from Obsbot about tracking a kiter?

Re: Kitemare warning about crossed lines!

This incident has made me think that if kite bars had a very small bump or two at the spot your fingers touch on just the red side of the bar this sort of incident would be much less likely. Basically something like they key finder bumps on the F and J key of a keyboard giving you tactile feedback ...

Re: Kitemare warning about crossed lines!

Man, that rock "beach" sucks! I'll never complain again about one of my local beaches that has a bit more coarse gain sand than others. I self launch/land 95% of the time, but in a situation like that, with obstacles that would tear up the kite on a self landing, and other kiter just standing around...

Re: Shiny Bronq advice

I bought a Ronson a few years ago, rode it twice and sold it. It just didn't have that trademark Shinn feeling that the Bronq and Monk have of being so fun, tossable, fast, forgiving, and easy on the knees. It definitely boosted better with more pop but it honestly just wore my knees out - too stiff...

Re: Shiny Bronq advice

I rode 4 generations of Monks for many years (still have a few) but the Bronq is undoubtedly a step up in every aspect. I'm on the CRB-4 now and would not hesitate one second to grab a new Bronq Luigi if I broke or lost this one. Mike Birt's video is spot on. The Bronqs are all about speed and plush...

Re: North - MY21 Collection

I'm 5'10" with same wingspan, but I guess I just like the bar close to me. I do have trouble easily reaching a spun bar when kite is really low. No problems when it's high, but that's not how I kite, if you know what I mean.

Re: North - MY21 Collection

I have zero problems with color, but I am concerned about the nonadjustable throw length. I know a few guys have complained it's too short at 18", but I set my bars with short throw, around 11-12". I don't think I'll be able to reach the bar after spinning it when kite is low in window. Plus, there ...

Pivot Inflation Valve

Probably a stupid question, but I just got a new Pivot and am wondering how the valve works. It seems you push the spring loaded button in the middle to open and close the valve. Are you supposed to open it before attaching the hose? Doesn’t all the air escape after you inflate and take the hose off...
