Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

One of the issues I have with the quarantine is that the cause of death is cardiorespiratory arrest and we are shaming people for exercising (e.g. kiting and surfing). Cardiorespiratory arrest: means your heart fails because your lungs cannot oxygenate blood effectively, AND your heart is working mu...

Vegas
actually C kites don't jump as well as modern "open-C"s or modern bow-is kites.

I'd recommend a Dice over a vegas. Ridden both I can definitely jump higher on the 2020 Dice.

Okay, how about just showing it in the air? Point is, show more than someone trying to rip it in half.
I'd love to see more riding footage too!

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I do find it odd that we're not see videos of a 17m Aluula kite hanging along side a foil kite in very light wind and video showing how much faster it turns. Time will tell but it seems like a lost opportunity to market this stuff. I don’t think that’s odd- does ocean rodeo make a foil kite? If the...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

seriously though the references to the Hellfish are too real - If I recall correctly one of the unforeseeable issues with that material (cuben fiber) was that it was too rigid, and that meant it would slice through stitching when under tension and led to the leading edge exploding. Did you guys not ...

why don't kite bags have line spools?

You guys might remember me from my questioning "Why are pump bases flat?" http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2374806 Here's my new question, why don't we create a spooling system for lines in our kite bags? My terrible description of what I am envisioning: 1. a spool integrated into the ki...
