Re: Wichard Snap Shackles - why so much $$$?!

Hi, quick price check in Germany, the shackles is 44€ something, plus shipping. By the way, I am kitesurfing since ~ 2000 something. In these days there was nothing serious on the market when it comes to safety. The only thing we had was this one on the picture. This design is the only thing !!!!! b...

Re: DIY Thick surf foil wings

Hi, This is more or less a Corona based project. It is a far bigger wing for my canard type foil, thinner profile. More or less it is a full week printing and the printer is in my apartment. It feels like you have a guest at home breathing and making strange noises 24/7 I print mockups to pull molds...

Re: revolutionary twintip board

Looks like a carbon twin tip to me.. two sides, two pads, 4 fins.. Any details? Am I missing a point? Hi, it is a board made with resin infusion. The first one's have been made around 2004, so nothing new here. On this particular board the bottom is made out of 0/90°, I hope for the owner there is ...

Re: Levitaz foil broken mast needs help.

I thought Levitaz foil is full carbon very solid and indestructible but not this time . Very disappointed. The wing is perfectly okay but the head neck just broken by itself. Still less than 24 months under warranty, but they ve done nothing about this. Hi, nothing in the world is indestructible. W...

Re: Polishing PVA release agent?

I'm not great at spraying PVA release agents. There are always some imperfections. But its very water soluble. Has anyone tried just dampening it and trying to smooth it a bit? Maybe mist it a bit with a spray bottle, then use a lint free cloth? Hi, PVA can not be polished. But you can spray it glo...

Re: Unboxing: Moses Aluminium Foil Kit

That's a bit surprising - why do you think it would be stiffer? :?: I do not think it is stiffer. I know it is stiffer. I have tested the flex. -- Gunnar I'm not questioning whether it is stiffer ... I'm asking why . Based on your experience with various foils, what do you think the reason for the ...

Re: Twist Wings liquid force impulse

Hi,

there was a song from Elvis Presly from the year 62 with the title " Return to sender "

This is very obviously a warranty or better a cash back.

I guess, the chinese demolded the hot wing to early and left it laying somewhere not straight.

tks
