Re: tack on the snow

The principle is to turn upwind, so facing the wind at the middle of the transition, while "standard " transition on snow are turning back to the wind
Ahh!..This explains what I was missing in the above videos. I'll have to try this on snow tomorrow.

Re: Time for a better pump

Could the problem be the maintenance? To address a few of the previous situations, 1) I also am pumping up my kites probably over 200 times a year. 2) 90% of those at near or below freezing temps. 3) Have NEVER maintained my pump.

Re: Glueing velcro to depower cleat?

Sergei, Good luck with the Core sticky pad velcro. I've been watching this thread to see what I can use to fix my Core bar. Same issue as yours. Just to add to this thread - I've also tried shoe-goo - doesn't work for very long.

Loveland, not as good. Just looked at my board - a few core shots. Won't hit that again til more snow.

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Yes, I've also just spent the last hour or so reading through this entire thread. Looks like it's about to end, but thought I would add my own thoughts on CORE, since I've been using their kites for about 8 years now. Started with the original GT, upgrading each model to a current quiver the latest ...
