Re: Cartagena Colombia - looking for lessons

I am heading to Cartagena, Colombia and other areas of the Colombia North Coast in Jan/Feb/Mar, and looking to take some kitesurfing lessons. I took one lesson maybe 8 years ago just for a few hours, and have no experience beyond that. I am confident in the ocean though, and have done some surfing,...

Re: Upgrading Valve

I tried to do just that on an old 17m but the stitching for the leading edge was to close to the valve hole. If it's far enough away go ahead and do it but I would reinforce the leading edge with a Dacron patch like others have suggested. Luckily for me on the Fuel the valve is pretty much in the c...

Re: Upgrading Valve

Most Boston and similar large combo valves also have a ring of Velcro hook on the valve shoulder and a mating ring of Velcro felt/loop on the inside of the kite LE pocket around the valve opening to prevent the valve from rotating when you turn the valve plug or cap.

Upgrading Valve

Hey y'all first of all Merry X-mas! I have a 2012 7m SS Fuel that I bought brand new a few years back and it is still practically new with about 5 sessions on it, it would have about 2 more sessions on it except twice I've forgotten the pump hose adaptor to inflate it (9mm I think). So in efforts of...
