Re: Reduce the Throw on an Ozone Contact V4 bar

Ocean Rodeo makes one but I’m not sure it will fit the tube size or if they sell it separately. You’ll have to check. Back in the day I used to use one of the plastic clips that pinch the tubes that connect the leading edge to the strut. Was movable and you could push through it if you had to for sa...

Re: Bar interoperability

Back in the day Ocean Rodeo did not use equal length lines so in the newer kites the rear bridle lines needed to be different lengths when you used a newer bar as they did change to 4 equal length lines eventually. And they supplied a number of different rear line lengths with the kites to adjust fo...

Re: Bar interoperability

Also, make sure that the bar travel is long enough for the kite type and size. If the bar doesn’t travel far enough when you push the qr the kite might not depower fully. And for performance make sure the bar travel while hooked in is enough to slack the lines, different kites have different travel ...

Re: Eco

Yes, bla blah blah..... Any species that grows into overpopulation reaches the same self-limiting endpoint. From the view point of the species it is never pretty. From the viewpoint of the planet it is just what happens. It cycles, a available food decreases, population drops, repeat until extinctio...

Re: Eco

Not to worry, whether we are capable of voluntary change or not, overpopulation is a self-limiting problem.
Although humans may not like the outcome.

Re: Is there any company that welds the valves?

Are you saying they are doing it fast and cheap instead of right because it is such a small market? Or is it just the ‘nature of the beast’ that they can’t figure it out with too many variables?

Re: rounded shoulders and kitesurfing.

Stand in front of a mirror, close your eyes and take a few steps in place, relax as much as you can without falling over. Open your eyes, if you are looking at the back of your hands instead of the thumb & first finger your shoulders are rounded. Leads to all kinds of issues later on. Stretch your p...

Re: Kiting prognosis after heart attack

Old news. It MIGHT have a very small relationship with VLDL (not LDL) but it is tenuous at best. And, of course, dogma, especially medical dogma has always been current, correct and never changing. Stay with it if you wish, I said to research it yourself. It was posted to help explain the confusion ...

Re: Kiting prognosis after heart attack

Or it might be because most of what you have been told about plaque buildup is wrong. It does not relate to high or low cholesterol levels in the blood in any way even though the plaque itself is made of cholesterol. There have only been 2 decent long term, large group studies in the last 40 years a...
