Re: Music when kiting - without headphones

Hello guys and girls, Anyone has experience with a waterproof ipx8 speaker when kiting? I would love to add music but I hate earphones or earbuds, and now in winter with a tight neoprene hood it is impossible. I am thinking of getting a waterproof speaker and streaming the music from my Apple watch...

Re: Cloud Kites A Caution

If you are considering purchasing a Cloud kite we provide the following caution. First there is nothing wrong with the design. These kites fly fine. However this kite requires high pressure to function properly. The designers own videos suggest pumping the kite with a hand pump until you can barely...

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

Any reason to not do a scarf that I might be overlooking? Some commercial boards (kitelement) use a scarf joint, so it's a valid way to go, especially with wood core boards. I would imagine that doing a scarf joint is a bit more effort, depending on what equipment you have available. Both the wavy ...

On your build, did you do a scarf joint where the halves meet?
No, plain old butt joint with a plate on top.

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

I've got two of 'em.
A 132 Progeni split board that I've had for at least 6 years.
A 146 wave TT split board that I built about 2 years ago.
Both work as well as my normal boards.
Definitely recommended.

Re: Why there are no 135 by 50 TT boards?

Beginner's question obviously - but really-why? Being wide a 135x50 or 135x 48 would probably work well in lighter winds and for beginners. After all it has 20% bigger surface area compared to 135x40. It would presumably work well in higher winds too as most people say that shorter boards are bette...

Re: 24 hr epoxy cured in 1 hr

Also, a more hardener than recommended can decrease cure time. Not sure if that's recommended. Epoxy cross-links, so excess hardener doesn't get used, which is why it's recommended to be very precise with the ratios. Polyester systems however has an activator, and the amount of activator can speed ...
