Re: Wanted: Liquid Force Mission Control Surf Chicken Loop - US

Seems like an OEM chickenloop, so there must be other brands that have compatable parts that are not out of business. Harlem uses the same loop for example: https://harlemkitesurfing.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/kitesurf-bar-chickenloop.jpg https://www.iksurfmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/DSC0...

Re: Bridles

They should state riding hours instead of years, it is not as if Dyneema is rotting or wearing down by sitting in a dark and dry storage. But for the normal guy it is easier to keep track of the amount of years instead of logging the hours per kite size so I understand they keep it on the safe side ...

Re: Wingtip breaching on wave turns

Zeeko have a specific texture to help stop drop out when venting a wingtip. It's basically a fine grid pattern etched into the wing surface. They are also straight wings with no anhedral. It seems that any textured surface is better than a glossy gelcoat. You want the water to stick to the surface ...

Re: Duotone 2021

I doubt it has to with the suicide option. Differences in tube manufacturing is a possibility but also consider different riding styles and cleaning/handling practices: - some rider force the bar extremely hard against the depower cord or steering and sheeting simultaneously. Both will bend the tube...

Re: Wingtip breaching on wave turns

while others will have cavitation only AC75 is cavitating when they approach 55kn boatspeed, don't remember any kitefoiler hitting those speeds ;) When talking about ventilating wing tips: the most horizontal/straight wingtips will handle that the best (look at the recent race wing designs). Wingle...

Now I can grab with gloves and insert the ring without any effort :thumb:
nice DIY solution!

Shipping should indeed take a few weeks maximum. A bit of a hit or miss with this ongoing pandemic how fast it is handled locally.

Re: Walter proff treatment

I doubt it will help much unless you can also make all the seams airtight. The earlier ozone foilkites just leak a lot of air and water through the seams. My Chrono v1, v2 and R1 v1 all acted like a sponge when touching the water. Even when new and have seen the same thing happen on the hyperlinks s...

Re: Do foil kites sink?

The peak will sink single skin. Peak fabric density is very close to water density Although it is close to the density of salt water, it IS slightly more dense so as soon all the air pockets are gone it will sink. although very slowly due to the large surface area, but it is not a given for it to s...
