There is also Swiss brand Switch kites. They have direct sales and really very good prices. Their Nitro, elements kites are very well known. Also there is RRD or TEN kites which are also in low prices. Switch is New Zealand. Keep in mind with buying from them that the prices on the site are without...

Re: PU covered depower line check?

I have a custom bar with a tight PU cover, and replaced it after 150 sessions or so because the line is one part that includes the trim, and the clamcleat frayed the line a bit. Had a chance to inspect the part of the line that went underneath the PU, and it had no damage whatsoever.

Re: Reviews, Experiences of GongKite Bar and Lines.

I have the same QR, but I'm looking to replace it with something else in the future. Too bad that all the good alternatives for me aren't available as spare parts... The release is good, but the swivel sucks. Like mentioned already, it's very hard to turn when under load. I think the below Clamclea...

Re: Core Sensor 3 Safety Issues

It is sadly a fact different grading of the various sands found on beaches around the world will contribute to a greater or lessor extent to the wear of parts of control bars, so they should be dunked if set up on sand and it also makes sense to wash in clean water after riding, as it ever has been...

Re: Core Sensor 3 Safety Issues

I read your posts.. Not jumping on him but then doing exactly that in the post above. Lock down is a fact unfortunately, he didn’t say there was going to be NO response but that it might take longer. Berating him for a global pandemic effecting response times is exactly what i was on about. If supp...

Re: Core Sensor 3 Safety Issues

I've seen this problem multiple times on different forums, FB and whatsapp groupchats. Also the PU powerline getting stuck when pulling the QR seems to be a reoccuring problem. Yup, found this on one german forum. Seems like it stuck's and does not go all the way to the end and the metal lever can'...

Re: Jamie Overbeek jumps 31.4 meters (103 feet)

Isn't the Surf app accuracy dependent on the particular hardware it's running on, or are the sensors in all modern smartphones basically the same quality ? Because if there is a difference between different smartphones then it could be a coincidence that the particular model used for this test offe...
