Re: Click bar, small problem, check yours.

I do not own one but I really like the clean design of click bar. Without a click mechanism a perfect bar would be an iron heart relese with core plastic covered depower lines with unspinning mechanism and ozone/slingshot lines ;) But at the moment the cleanest design is click.

Re: Click bar, small problem, check yours.

@ Faxie - Why so angry ? ;) Internal parts of clickbar are just like lines prone to wear and have to be checked. I hope you check your lines often enough and replace them when it is needed. As long as north/duotone provides affordable spares it is fine. I was very skeptic towards click bar. I find i...

Re: Accident at Kite Beach, Bloubergstrand, South Africa

I kited in 5/4 ION winter wetsuit in CT in January 2 years ago. It was fine ! I kite in the same wetsuit in winter with no problems (0-5C). It was not too hot on the water :) The thing is that in CT that water is a lot colder than air. You want to pump your kite and set lines without wetsuit or with...

Re: 30+m breach??

Hey, its misty clifs, this year previous world record comes from that palce (29.something m). It is an areay with high clifs around, maybe the wind direction was right and there was an extra lift coming from ascending wind? Who knows! But it is sure that those guys already jump 25+ in not so optimal...

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

Actually I could test breaking strength if I could get a line spliced from both sides ;) I assume it would break somewhere at the splice or in proximity.

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

But note, it doesn’t matter. Because all of the lines have changed, including the leader lines. So if you had lines made to the original length, it wont go back to the new configuration of front and back lines of the same length at full power. Changed, compared to what? These are the lengths and pr...

Re: Any news from Woo HQ ?

THat is prolly why Woo tried to enter snow sports market which is probably much larger. Altho there is not so much need for acceleration tracker (except for those who do snowpark freeestyle and maybe freeride) and a GPS based device would have a wider audience. Woo has had a firmware update lately. ...

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

Dimitri prolly will not get in. His video does not follow KOTA judging rules, very few landings on megaloops are presented. Video is too long. It would be fun to see him compete. But I would rather see Janek in the comp :D Ruben Lenten just submitted a video thats about 5 min long...let's see if he...
