Re: simple opinion sought

I fly a 14 and 9 on the same wide setting on the north bar, used to swap but prefer the faster turn on the small kite anyway.

Re: Should boards break under certain pressure?

I don't see how you could make a board or strap / binding break predictably under a certain pressure or force. Maybe a ski binding type system but then you have the issue of only one foot releasing and having all that leverage on one leg.

Re: north trust bar 5th element on rhino 2008?

Would be very surprised if it didn't work with the new bar. Flown 07 rebel on 09 bar, 08 evo on 06 bar no problem. What's wrong with your current bar?

Re: lightwind plank - first hand opinions sought

sorry to disappoint but common sense prevailed over idealism and I've shelved plans for the surfboard for the time being. Picked up a Spleene session 141 for a good price so that should give a few extra knots and some nice speed for the flat bits. Still going to borrow a mate's surfboard and see how...

Re: Kiters jump over Worthing Pier

shut up guys, nobody was hurt they got away with it, and i dont think there is a line of people waiting to copy it so where is the worry?

Re: North lines???

to use a non kookproof line, just get a short length of 3 or 4mm dyneema / spectra / vectran and tie an overhand or figure eight knot at each end. Put one end into the larkshead pigtail on the kite and attach your line to the other end also with a larkshead. Job done. You may need to adjust the leng...
