Harness for winging

Here is my homemade harness for winging ..with an NSI hook. I simply cut some thick foam (soft floor tile) and attached it to the strap in several places with electrical tape. It is holding up well after a month. No doubt others may find more elegant ways to attach padding to the strap, but my point...

Re: Risk of a knot v risk of knot removal

A simple knot reduces the line strength to maybe 60% of its original value. It also shortens the line, Removing a knot is easy.. I am the expert around here. I have removed many knots and it never takes me longer than two minutes. The secret?.. small long nose pliers that I use to pull the knot apar...

Re: How to sit on the board during relaunch

Another technique is to stand on your fuselage (which is under water). Your board should be sideways between you and your kite and its mast downward. Put one foot in front of the mast and one behind.

Re: Soul V2?

I've had a few sessions now on my new Soul v2 12m and I am very happy. Everything is crisper and works very well. My old Soul 12m had hundreds of hours use and was It getting a little bit aged.

Re: deep tuttle vs tuttle compatibility

A board that accepts a deep Tuttle mast will also accept standard or medium Tuttle mast. You may need longer screws. As for jumping, racing gear like the 106 mast is designed to be very light and fast, not durable. You can jump it.. just don't expect a warranty if it starts to crack.. Personally I a...
