Re: New free app to track you kite activity

Interesting. How soon until you have the Android app up and running? I have a Samsung Galaxy watch and have been looking for an app to use while kiting. So far, all I've been able to do is make the step counter keep telling me I'm achieving 150% of my step goal while I'm kiting! :lol: I use endomod...

Re: Harnesses – new tightening system?

I had one of those Neil Pryde automatic system.

Re: which wetsuit in dec in floripa

It has been unusually cold for this time of year because of "El Niño" and more rainy then usual. But the forecast is for a really hot summer this year because of "El Niño". Usually I am sailing in board-shorts by December, but there may be days where a shorty may be an option, specially at the east ...

Re: a new type jam-cleat ?

It needs to be kept under tension otherwise it releases.
With the kite, there is the possibility of slack lines releasing the depower.

I would also be concerned about the uneven force aplied to the hook in this configuration increasing the possibility of your hook breaking. I solved the accidental unhooking by covering the donkey dick with plastic tubing. Never had a accidental unhook after adding the "condom" to the dick. Safe kit...
