Re: Surfr. New kitesurf jump app?

If phone battery life and/or display visibility are issues, one option may be to turn the phone screen off and stream the data to a watch for display?

I'll run them all on the original kitefuselage with the original stab. The larger wings are modded to fit the fuselage.
Just out of interest, what is the mod? Often wondered what the difference between the two fuselages is?

Re: 3D printed bar inserts?

norcom, thanks for the input. If I were to print the part I showed above I would probably print in this orientation: insert vertical 9mm v1.png As you point out this should make a cleaner slot/hole as no support material is required. Also, the height and top part (that inserts into the bar) could be...

Re: Anyone ever build their own harness?

Yeah I did, back in the 90s! Used it mainly on land (buggies & landboards). Even the spreader bar and ‘hook’ was home made! Harness was made from old car seatbelts, from a scrap yard. I think I based it on a climbing harness With a proper spreader bar it would probably be ok on a foil but no padding...

Re: 3D printed bar inserts?

After cleaning the inside of the bar with drill-brush and water, I fill the center hole section with epoxy with micro balloons and with 10-20% added graphite powder mixed in and then carefully bore out the hole with a Dremel and sand carefully with paper rolled on a chopstick. So far works well, sl...

Re: 3D printed bar inserts?

And how would you replace the centre insert? To be fair, buy a SmoothOn PU kit and go wild with a mold. Way more industrial. And 2 part silicone for a mold. All this about AU$50. Do you think a PU part would be hard enough? I realise a printed part wouldn't be very hard but it'll be easy to knock o...

3D printed bar inserts?

I’m thinking about printing bar center inserts (for power lines to run through) for carbon bars.
Has anybody been doing this? If so, is it a worthwhile and is there a preferred material?
I’m expecting wear to be an issue, so would make something that is easily replaceable.
