Re: Bar compatibility F-One Bandit 2016

Hello everyone, I've tried to find a solution to my issue, but couldnt find one. I am relatively new to kitesurfing and bought two F-One Bandits from 2016 (9 & 12) two years ago. Since the Monolith Bar is very unsafe, due to its two line safety system (the 12m2 didnt flag out at all after pulling t...

Re: Wing profile info for backyard hydrofoil builders

PrfctChaos, Thanks for the kind words Jake. As always, I'm just keen to see a few more ripping and beautifull custom wings out there. The big brands with their overpriced popout wings are held in too high regard in my books (and have riden plenty of them). Would be interrested to hear which profile...

Re: Wing profile info for backyard hydrofoil builders

Hi Robke, I think the below freeride wing looks pretty good. 750 mm wingspan, 750 cm^2 area (It is just a touch larger than the theoretical minimum zone, but going down to 600-675 cm^2 only has a very small advantage). Recommended profile is the S2055. Make it in Polished aluminium would look aweso...

Re: secret hack that works. keep water drops off your gopro

Has anyone simply tried a light coating of RainX? Spray a screen towelette and apply it to the lens Yeah works perfect, put it on the gopro quite some time before you go out. While kiting it works great since there is always wind that blows off the water. Also works great on sunglasses. Just a bit ...

Re: Gong pro MT first impression

Sorry off topic, but has anyone in the US been able to order from Gong successfully recently? I keep putting in an order, they send me a shipping quote, I put in my credit card info, get an error and they cancel my order. No where on the website to contact them it seems for this issue. Is it just m...

Re: Reduce the Throw on an Ozone Contact V4 bar

Obviously reducing the throw will also reduce the amount of depower available, which might not be ideal. Depending on how much closer you want the bar to be, a small chicken loop might solve your problem? https://www.kitesurfing-shop.co.uk/buy/019-small-chicken-loop-v4-bars-879955 If you dare go dow...

Re: how to self land using the lower center line method

.... You can not use a method for self landing to self launch. Maybe in some cases you can? A post from 'airsail' on page 2 of https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2408145&p=1116530#p1116530 "Lower front line is the only way with a Cloud or UFO, they just won’t drop if you pull the top front l...

Re: Core Sensor 3 Safety Issues (Core statement in initial post)

I think they send a mixed message: wash after each use, but not too often :-) or are they changing the stance for S3 only https://i.postimg.cc/TYHz4trw/Screenshot-20191222-220406-Whats-App.jpg Maybe there is a difference between wash (using some form of soap/detergent) & rinse (fresh water only)?

Re: wind proof top for wetsuit recommendations

Cheap kayaking top does it for me.
Eg https://www.lomo.co.uk/acatalog/spraytop-2.html#SID=10

Self launch can cause issues too, but starting them on their back seems to work well.
I hadn’t thought of that.
So do you just follow the self land procedure (as in video above) in reverse?
