Re: Confused about pitch control

If you are leaning harder because you are driving the kite somehow so it generates more power, you also gain speed, this generates lift but it's not really clear to me if the additional speed compensates for the extra pressure.

Re: How can I attach a stopperball in front line?

wish edt” posted that pic sooner.. now understand how simple it is...definitely doing that on second bar :thumb: that be fine to do on regular kite line ? Or just that 3mm Dyneema? Does the line diameter matter or no :?: You don't want to do this if the stopper ball itself carries load. If it carri...

Re: Confused about pitch control

I hope this makes sense to someone because it is very confusing to me. I think my stance is pretty well balanced over my foil’s center of lift. When I get on a wave and start to feel the push of the wave and increased speed, I find myself increasing front foot pressure. Makes sense so far. But when...

The cores fly on high Y while ozones are low-V.
Yeah didn't know that. Oh well. Some kites work when you change from high Y to V some don't.

Sure, even better to check the QR even before a session
I'm in too much of a damn hurry when I set up. I'm lucky to even get the red on the left. I know I should take it slow and easy when I set up but I can't help it.

Re: Unintended suicide mode on Core sensor 2+ bars

I am zero percent surprised that an entire kite population never sees these problems why? Most kiters don't throw their quick releases except for once or twice in ten years only when they "really have to." I throw my quick release at least two or three times a week, often to end a session. It would ...

Re: Unintended suicide mode on Core sensor 2+ bars

Also don't become a brand hater. Everyone can change. all the kite companies can both put out bad products and fix their ways and start putting out good products. Conversely there are brands that can put out good products for years and then one year put out a bad one. So don't get stuck on this "bad...

Re: Unintended suicide mode on Core sensor 2+ bars

dude keep the core kites they are decent and buy an ozone control bar. You can swap over to the kites next year. It's ridiculous how people fight on forums for no reason. You can usually get last year's model brand new for cheap. https://greenhatkiteboarding.com/ozone-contact-control-bar?fee=7&fep=2...

Re: Unintended suicide mode on Core sensor 2+ bars

I think everyone wants Core to fix this problem. Even if I don't use their control bars I want everyone to be safe.
