Re: Forum Etiquette, Helmets and Respect.

There has been a reaction to what happened at Camber, not surprisingly, by kiters that frequent this spot; obviously looking to protect those that come to kite there and prevent another terrible tragedy from occurring again. Today was a case in point, I tether launched from a breakwater that was not...

Re: Storm Hannah

Winds were good at Camber today, further up the coast so not quite as mental as the south west. Still the winds were gusty and strong, 7m order of the day. Mountainous seas, however due to the gusty nature of the winds, one minute you were frantically weaving the kite so you didn't get munched and t...

Re: Need Slingshot CSS Bungee, what year is my control bar

That bar is for Slingy Turbo Diesel circa 2007. No bungee. Leash attaches to the ring (A) in your diag. I've got the same bar for my Slingshot link 15m (minus the bar pullies), was out on it yesterday. The leash goes over your bar and up to the ring, a bit messy but its ok. The only issue with the b...

Re: 20 Years of Kiting!

1998 ah? I remember travelling out from White Salmon after a windsurfing session at Hood River in 1997. I looked down at the river and said to my buddy, "Hey look at that! There's some dude down there on a board being towed along by a kite!". It was such an odd sight we stopped the car to take a loo...

Re: Harnesses and ribs

In a similar place. Busted rib after a crashing a forward roll kiteloop, the rib has repaired fine but sticks out a bit. The left edge of the spreader bar sits right on the broken area, which I believe levered up and caused the break during the crash. Now ride with ION B2's which are very well made ...

Busted Rib

Took a pretty bad crash about 7 weeks ago resulting in a fractured rib, its now repaired but sticks out and doesn't look particularly great. Went back out on the water the other day for the first time and realised that the waist harness may have contributed the break, the left edge of the harness sp...

No first hand knowledge, but based on that, no, they are not compatible.
Thanks for that chart, which seems to indicate that slingy bar with Fone kite is ok but not an Fone bar with slingshot kite...
