Completely irresponsible conjecture from Toby once again. :nono:
I actually don't think it's Toby ;) Someone else is filling his shoes?

Or Toby's writing English has changed significantly in the last few months...Dare to comment Toby? Your commenting style completely changed recently.

Re: Kite line re-coating

Fine according to some, not fine according to others ;)

Lines are perfectly fine to revert, shorten, and make your own loops. The one's who bin them, just looove binning. The matter of resources, less needs.

Is your board THAT important to cross post around the continents on the main kitesurfing thread, ignoring the KB/Gear Builders sub forum? Get over it mate, it's...

Re: How much tension really is on the lines?

This was discussed... Here: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2399369 I am riding ultra thin race lines all the time for the last 3.5 years. Same lines, and always wash them after. Sure, I'm 60kg, but I'm also averaging 6-10m jumps, 30-60 per sesh, 100-150 seshs/year, 11m Edge 99% of time. Y...

Re: Switch kite EU import tax ?

I do not need to imagine this. Lived for 32 years in such a system called Europe. And not European Union. Today, we have more thieves from different countries than our own. It happens with open borders. Thank God, live in AU now. Only our own thugs. And no import taxes on sport goods yet, if not mi...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

^ Sure, but only when not tensioned.... What are you hooking in to? Rope slider? Usually, at least from what I've seen, the Wichard release is used the other way around. Yo lo engancho a una anilla conectado al gancho del arnés con dyneema o directamente al arnés sin gancho de Ozone. Creo que otros ...

Re: The Safety Topic: please post your experience and advice!

First of all, and this might be a surprise for many, we in Australia do NOT launch standing from the shore side. That got me big time in Europe. As seen on the podiatanapraia vid, the kiter launches standing from the shore. Instead, the kiter should be standing in the water, if lofted, it would end...
