Re: Most stylish tricks of all time

There are tricks where Style Is Everything. Do it with style or don't do it at all. Take a staple trick like a raley. Done with commitment, kite super low, good kicker or with a downloop, fully stretched out and it's very classy. Done wrong, hooked in, kite too high and rising, and it's extremely fr...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I had a demo 8m for a few weeks and pretty much hated it compared to my Souls. Flapped like hell and developed very little power. It sounds like it wasn't trimmed properly... Should be trimmed and/or used in a windrange where there's virtually no flapping. I agree the 8 is nowhere near as fun as th...

Re: How to slow down the foil

One way to deal with a speed run is to embrace it! Stay confident in your ability to ride along! As Peter said, try to anticipate and know when and why you'll get overpowered and take preemptive measures to prevent that. Riding closer upwind, and deeper downwind helps. As per the touchdowns, I have ...

Re: Drying Kites in Rainy Conditions

If it's really wet, I leave the struts inflated when I roll the kite, then upright it in the bathtub/shower. It won't get completely dry, but it'll drain the excess water from the kite and prevent it from pouring all over the inside of the bag/your floor. This! Main concern when packing in the rain...

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

:thumb: Tooless depower line change....another benefit of the infection QR Well, I had that with my older Ozone megatron + AeroCleat setup, and that didn't require any splicing anywhere. And before replacing the depower line, I could just shift it down by about 20cm to remove the lower part of the ...

Re: Globe Kites Trix 2008

I can't believe people here are advising him on repairing that kite that belongs in a MUSEUM. I don't see anything wrong with using older kites, when they were good ones to begin with. Of course if the kite had been used for 12 years, is all worn out, stretched out, if the bar is falling apart, or ...

They do, everything does, but you see them wear out, so that you can make an informed decision and replace them before they fail.

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

https://www.instagram.com/p/CBdlbjcD7Um/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Just received mine earlier this week and I'm pretty impressed by the design. And the spring loaded release of the ring when unloaded... almost cracked my laptop screen! Question, though, is about how you'd mount that ring onto the...

Re: Globe Kites TRIX 2008

Valves aren't glued, they are welded. Which is typically adequate, but after many years, and depending on environment of storage, this bond can fail. Invest in a tube of Aquaseal or something similar (flexible urethane glue) and reglue your valves. Clean, roughen, degrease, apply glue on both sides,...

progressing at what feels like a really fast pace.
I take that it's partly due to getting many more sessions per season, not having to wait till it's over 20kts to have a lively board under your feet.
and of course the cumulative result of the past 30yrs.
