Re: Coast Guard urges kitesurfing safety - San Francisco

Do these kiters get charged for the rescue?
I would assume yes?...

Re: Wetsuit repair glueing - glue doesn't stick and comes off?!?

I use it on my NP Eclipse suit for a few minor slits in the windskin. Haven't had any issues. I do have a NP Elite suit too, but I don't wear it often as I'm at present a bit too festively plump for it. That windskin does seem a bit less porous and slightly smoother. I could see that maybe not adher...

Re: Wetsuit repair glueing - glue doesn't stick and comes off?!?

Have you tried AquaSeal?

I haven't found a better sealant for wetsuits than that. My old O'neill Wind Freak was actually 70% Aquaseal/30% neoprene by the time I tossed it...

Re: what is 2010 Powerdrive IDS worth. New

Horrendous bar pressure and a wonky AF safety system would be my assessment vs. a modern Switchblade. Wounded Warrior takes kite gear in on donation. Dude seriously? Apart from the kite's habit to invert and hover , it never jammed and if your main line snapped you could still fly on the safety lin...

Re: Action Cams in 2019 whats everyone using

That remote charging issue on the GoPro Smart remote is maddening. It's been shit for 10 years and GP still hasn't changed it. Every person I know with a GP remote has the same problem if they use it in water. I'm accustomed to the procedure for cleaning the terminals. Rinsing immediately after salt...

Re: Can I use a single control bar for all my kites?

You can always have the lines cut down to 23 or whatever you like and have the leftover made into extensions. Lots of places do it for a fair price. :bye: This is what I would do. I use 28m lines on my 14m kite when I'm trying to get out on marginal days. The extra length does help for lighter air,...

Re: Vacuum bags

Yeah I was considering getting a couple for my bigger kites to take on vacation. I know they really do a nice job of compressing your kites and make them quite a bit smaller for travel. That said I'd be tentative to really compress my kites that much. Probably doesn't hurt the canopy, but the one pu...
