Re: valve delam time - time caught up - what glue?

Never tried superglue, doubt it'd do the job. But Aquaseal never let me down. Clean / Roughen / Apply on both sides / Wait a bit to become tacky / Clamp together Good to make a gig with a piece of wood drilled at the outer diameter of the valve so that you can apply uniform pressure around the valve...

Re: marc jacobs kota - pushed harder than anyone

Not underestimating the risk and technicality of Jesse's impressive handle pass(es), but there was definitely a dangling factor in there. With many rotations on the way down, because well... there was no other choice. For a while, I felt transported back in time, before kiteboarders collectively dec...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

Short mast makes it less intimidating, but it'll also transform any breaching into a fall. The advice I had been given for my first day was "do not foil". Do whatever is required to prevent the foil from lifting you up at speed, then do brief controlled flights. On a full sized mast, I guess you've ...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2019

Well, as much as I prefer the feeling of riding with LEIs in the snow, mostly because that's what I'm used to for 95% of the sessions in the year, I can't argue that good foil kites like Ozone's are very well suited to backcountry snowkiting, and some days there's a definite advantage with those. Fo...

Re: Hybrid wave and foil board

I've been more than happy with the Zeeko Slash 5'4 over the last couple of years. I think the newer ones are a bit shorter at 5'2. Nearing the end of life though, as it has received a fair bit of abuse over countless sessions. It feels a bit heavy, but surfs very well. Of course it's a compromise, f...

Re: Raising the rocker

As a short term solution, or to experiment with different angles, you can us...

Re: Fukushima - isn't it time we started worrying?

Since you know that this impressively colourful map is totally irrelevant to radiation, and was only used to fool the ignorant masses who can't read a key properly, please explain why you felt the need to include it in your argumentation. Sure we need to be worried, but we also need to understand th...

Re: Cabrinha bar repair advice pls

I'll take over-engineered anytime my life is hanging by a string, thanks Well... tell me how that worked for the original post then? Worn out rope that broke, and it was impossible to assess its condition until it broke... Either this breaks in a critical time, with life literally hanging by a stri...

Re: Cabrinha bar repair advice pls

(...) Cabrinha say I need to replace the whole assembly which I don't understand as all it is is a broken line. (...) Overengineered stuff that you can't easily maintain... and that you can't even properly assess for wear. Sounds about right for Cabrinha / North... (there are others!) In most parts...
