Re: 30 year old woman missing in Argentina

Are you similarly "lost at sea" ? imaginary colleagues Anonymous at best. Are they 40k acrobats at Circque de Soleil or 40k fry cooks for McD? Maybe they are 40k bird watchers who hate kites? 40k imaginary friends is a lot keep track of. Mysterious that they must have thoughts on this missing kiteb...

Re: Should I fully dry my foil kite?

Out of interest how do you rinse a foil kite? Mainly interested as my second hand one had some evidence of sand inside and since then it has been dropped into salt water long so has had a little water inside. Do you rinse the inside too or just spray down the outside? Generally less is more with re...

Re: Should I fully dry my foil kite?

Fresh water will encourage mildew and this is where moisture is most damaging. Always dry completely if wet with fresh water. Salt water is less of a problem. But the salt in the kite will attract moisture when it’s humid and then stick sand. When it gets bad then I rinse the kite and dry completely.

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

I'd be curious to see the more expensive polycarb fog-vented water sports sunglasses that cost more than $520. I doubt they exist. Seaspecs charges $150 USD extra for Rx lenses. Lip is charging $300 USD extra for Rx lenses in Typhpoons. Lip is charging $415 USD extra for Rx lenses in Surges! What a...

Re: Chosing my next foil

Check out Ketos. I'm 80kg and have multiple wings, most recently the 1000cm2. It covers everything very well. Love the single bolt KFBox on the board. The 118 board, mast length of your choice (70, 83, 90, 100) and possible the Karver medium stab. Ben @ Concept Air is a dealer and close to you ... ...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

Yes they’re expensive, but there’s a reason why people rave about them. $520 USD for prescription glasses, WTF! You could easily spend less. There are plenty of value options. $520 sounds like a lot for a kite or a surfboard to almost anybody who isn’t a into it. You can also easily spend more. Man...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

. Any tips for painful temples? . Maybe the frame can be adjusted. Or maybe is not the right frame for you. One of the huge downsides of The “I like [Brand]” testimonials in eyewear is that people have different shapes. And again the peril of buying glasses online as well. You could get a hot air f...

Re: Closed Cell Foil Kite Relaunch

Yes! Its amazing to see how tough situations can be saved if you persist. One top tip is once the kite is unrolled and the water is draining: be very careful as one tip goes up not to let the empty wing tip fly over. Pulling the rear line of the empty flying side to backstall it near to shore will a...

Re: Rings for Seatbelt QR/Snapshackle QR

I would still suspect that the release mechanism disengaged. Definitely not the shackle but yes that was my first thought too. Its a Tylaska shackle and it was closed on inspection immediately on losing the bar. The ring disappeared. And the spliced depowerline was intact where it went around the r...
