Re: Possible Scam - Buyer Beware

.... That's the great thing about using PayPal, they will shop vac that money back to you if an online transaction goes sideways. I just had to have them intervene twice in the last month on Ebay deadbeat sellers. Yes, PayPal usually works well. The guy who concerned me asked me to use PayPal "frie...

Re: Possible Scam - Buyer Beware

Good looking out. You kind of freaked me out a little though, I just bought a new North bar off of someone on iKitesurf this morning.... The guy I dealt with seemed legit though. Knew the equipment well, answered all my questions promptly and shipped the bar out already. Not worried about it. That's...

Re: woo vs gopro

I kind of equate the Woo to Strava for mountain biking. After a month of riding my bike like a nut just to shave a few seconds off to win a virtual trophy I realized it kind of sucked the fun out of it. Sure it has other uses and I think it's intentions are primarily for enjoyment, but people take c...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Yeah just a quick Google of reviews on this camera/company don't reflect fondly on either..... The comments section of several reviews are off the rails. EXAMPLE. https://www.pcmag.com/review/359869/revl-arc This has turned into a real life episode of Silicon Valley! (Gilfoyle FTW.) The verdict on t...

Re: Kite line re-coating

If its the part where they rub because of looping.... I take a candle, rub it on the areas, then close my hand around the line and move up and down repeatingly. The parafin then nicely melts on/in the line. Works good enough for me. Does it help to watch pornography? Best reply yet... :lol1:

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

So is this thing dead or what? After reading the "lost Revl in Capetown" thread I went onto Facebook to see if they are still pushing this camera and/or making improvements. Well.......their FB page is pretty much a graveyard of old info and pissed customers going off about unfulfilled orders, no An...

Re: 2017 Click bar Y split question

The black ball is part of the 2018 and later V distributor components. 2017 had a cheap clip that didn't work well and prematurely wore sections of the line.

If you aren't running a North kite you can remove all that rubbish and just use the bar like a normal low V setup.

Re: Lost Revl Arc in Cape Town Sunset

Awe man that really sucks....sorry you lost it. I lost my new GoPro Hero 7 Black last week while riding. Thankfully the floaty did it's job and I found it later in the day. Just wanted to ask ya how the U-go mount worked out for you? I was going to order one and was like "oh shit" when I saw your pi...

Re: Naish Pivot 2017 vs 2019

83kg

Pivots seem to run large. 14m works pretty well for me as a light wind kite but you may want more.
