Re: Kai lenny with Ozone ?

I thought this was an April fools joke when I saw SS talking about it. Guess it is a real thing?

Re: Size bar for a 9m Slingshot RPM

I use a 17" bar with my 10m rpm and my 9m core xr5 for free riding. When riding wakestyle I use a 14" bar on my 7/9/10/12 kites if its light and Im on my 17m turbine then I use a 17" bar.

So a 17" bar will work with a 9m rpm.

Re: Skimboard to hydrofoil conversion

I converted a Phase 5 skim board to a foil board. It works just fine. You will have to sand down a giant patch to the foam. drill and place the inserts and fill in with epoxy plus a filler or use a poly urethane. After all that is done you then come back and re fiberglass the bottom where you sanded...

Re: Houston kiteboarding in April

Oh I have not looked at the map in a long time. But East beach has been destroyed for kiting thanks to the city of Galveston. A bunch of poles have been put up and the beach itself is smaller. So if crowded you need to go to the west end of the island. Eljardin is better they have removed a lot of t...

Re: Houston kiteboarding in April

How much do you weigh? Houston winds are the lightest on the Texas coast. Corpus and SPI get far stronger winds than we do. I'm 195 and fly mostly a 12m but that is with a twin. April you should not need a wetsuit maybe a heater top unless you really do not like the cold then a shorty should be good...

Re: Do Twin tips get softer or flexier over time?

Yes they do. Foam more so than wood because the core will break down over time. All so the sun is a killer to all plastics, paints, and rubber.

Re: climate change /unpredictable weather

Yes the weather is unpredictable it all ways has been. There are just too many factors that go into forecasting. Throw in the politics fo climate change and it gets worse. Toby you should just lock this thread now. It is only going to turn into a shouting match between a few people over CC. Honestly...

Re: Adapter to use Moses with inexpensive Aluminum Slingshot Masts

I think Foilmount need to let their distributors know that this adapter is available or at least for down under. I am keen to buy but it's a bit challenging. He just got them in a few weeks ago. I know since I'm the one who printed the prototypes for him. I don't know what his plans are for interna...

Re: AUTO-ZENITH high performance kite

So will it work with uneven lines? Most people dont tune their bars and they have uneven lines from only jumping in one direction.
