Re: Single Line Flag and line failures at the splice...

How much use has that line had?. It looks pretty beat. That is exactly what I am thinking, if anyone of my lines looked like that I would be replacing it asap... No wonder you are experiencing failures. Soaking wet when I took the pic and the lines are 11 months old. http://i.imgur.com/eRWJ9ag.jpg

Ozone Race Bar/Lines.
Cabrinha Standard Bar/Line.

Ozone lines lasted longer than the Cabrinha lines.

Single Line Flag and line failures at the splice...

In quick succession, I had two line failures at the splice on Single Line Flag bars... One was a 2015 Cabrinha bar and the other was an Ozone bar. Both bars use a flying line with a splice that attaches to the "bungee" together with a stopper. On Cabrinha bars, all other lines have sleeves on them e...

Re: Cabrinha 2016

The Cab bar is not perfect, but I still like it better than most. The new Chicken loop is a keeper, below bar swivel also. The depower system may be very different than most but when out on the water it works nicely, The straps are neat and streamlined and always in the same place right in front of...

Re: Teaching on land - should lines be short?

A few moons ago (2004), John Holzhall developed the KITEs learning system and as part of this system was the progression from short kite lines to long kite lines as experience was gained. With the basis that 3M line length differences = 1 kite size change (2004 kites), beginners started with 4M/7M/1...

My Chrono's are totally awesome so I can't wait to see what the new kites are capable of.

Re: Waist Harness Problems

Riding stance and riding ability. Need to always be perpendicular to kite lines. If you are falling at all, the harness is going to ride up and best way to reset without landing your kite is to lie in the water facing up at the kite at 11-1 and push the harness down. I changed back to my seat harnes...

Re: R1 - New Ozone Race Foil (Chrono Replacement?)

I have been learning to foil board on my AlpineFoil and I also own Chrono's. The true power of these kites is really only realized when you have a foil board or a race board that allows you to generate apparent wind. Foiling in light conditions over the weekend and once up on foil, quickly build up ...

Re: 2014 Cabrinha bar advice?

I like the overdrive feature of the Cabrinha 2014 and 2015 bars and that's it. - The 2014 bar barely floated in salt water and did not float in fresh water. 2015 bar added additional flotation to the bar ends to fix that problem. - Grip on both bars is too soft and the release will tear up the bar m...
