Re: New to kite, need to choose kite

If you have a local shop consider buying one of the brands they carry. Easier to get spare parts that way. You can all so ask around for advice on sizes that you will need.

Re: Ram air caught in surf disaster

This is a stretch here. This is like comparing apples to potatoes honestly. Paragliders are not designed at all for going down in the water and are open cell. There is no quick release to speak of instead you are attached by locking carabiners. All so in waves and surf an inflatable kite can end up...

http://americankiteboarding.com have large selection of those. Just search from their page for T-nuts

I broke only one so far and it's good to have spares
If you can not find them on the website just call them. My local shop they have every spare nut and screw type for foils.

Re: Moses wings

When I go to replicate I'll do a 2 part mold using silicone rtv and a fiberglass mother mold. My cad skills are not good enough to reverse engineer it lol.
