Re: Skateboard wheel/truck for kiting

I've always found that the light winds combined with an urban environment were making it much harder with a kite than with a windsurf rig. Plus I liked reconnecting with the feeling of a sail. On that setup below, running drop through deck, randall trucks and soft 69mm wheels. https://vimeo.com/1761...

Re: Foil polesurfing

When it's light and potentially shifty, there's more fun to be had windskating (or maybe now wingskating), the same effortless, energy-frugal motion as a foil, and it doesn't matter if wind shuts down. (and it costs f* all!) I spend enough time foiling on water in good conditions to not bother with...

Re: Different kites in different sizes quiver

8m Peak4, 5m Peak4, 9m Zeeko Notus Rev, 7m GK Trix, 5.5 GK Trix, 4m Airush DNA
That's some variety in the quiver, but all get used on various supports and conditions. None of them is very specialized. All round is good!

I don't have any problem with the size of the CL. Not too small, not too big, just riiiiiiight! (I'm 6'2 though).

But yeah, main issue is that it's discontinued.
I need to get spares while I can!

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

P_20191129_132050.jpg P_20191129_132002.jpg See, you don't even need to open the CL to replace any of the lines. Ample room in there. On second pic, you can see grub screws, they bite into the depower line PU cover, probably so that when you rotate the top to untwist your lines, they don't turn at ...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

Shame that you lose room for the safety line when going to single line though. And are you constrained to 4mm or could you go bigger?
The aforementioned Ozone lets you use a beefier line, have a safety line, and allows manual untwisting.

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

Not at all for that Ozone CL. You can have probably up to 6 or 8 mm depower line, pu coated or not, and a standard 4mm flag line alongside it, in its own separate hole. Plenty of room in there, which makes this so easy to maintain.

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

how long is it from inside of depower loop when stretched out, to the end (where bar rests) on your CL/QL in the video? 8) Peter I've measured it at 21cm. That's the standard loop. I know there are longer loops available for the avid freestylers, but I'm not sure if there are shorter ones for midge...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

Hi Peter, I'm using the "older" Ozone Megatron (like the one in this video and it does it all for me on my customized bars.
Single depower line, easy to change. Easy to untwist.
I hope Ozone will keep some spare parts for years!
