Re: help with a tangle!

I have experienced a "mega" tangle and had to remove the speed system in order to resolve the issue. Lines were not attached in this instance.

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

Hello @slowboat – The discussion is with reference to the bar (Back lines) The reviewer had to add an extra knot on the leader lines “under the floaters” in order to take up the slack on the back lines.

Re: Do you know the Kiteboarding Etiquette?

If you are going to ask someone to launch your kite that has never launched a kite before, IE your other half, kindly explain the process in a civil manner “Face to Face” first.

Re: Tips on making pig tails ?

I make my pigtails using the “Locked Brummel Splice" method and then run it through my sewing machine “belt and braces” approach.
Hand stitching would be fine if you don’t have access to a sewing machine.
I use Liros D Pro 01505 3mm (950kg) line with Heminway & Bartlett sewing thread.

Re: Sweet foilkite-riding

Thanks for sharing. There looks to be a technical problem when embedding videos on the forum at the moment. I remember seeing your video back in 2014 of your first session on the 12m Chrono V1. 4 years on, how does the Chrono V3 compare to the Chrono V1? Having never flown one! https://youtu.be/0fvU...
