Re: Naish ATB Bar Flagout Bungee Issue

I have a student that keeps breaking his flag out line. He keeps dropping his kite in the waves but doesn't let go of the kite entirely Ive never seen this happen before. Usually a line snaps or the kite gets destroyed. Another student of mine had the same thing happen on land in Mexico. He was ove...

Re: Travel to Columbia in February

We went to Columbia last February, stayed on the beach in Santa Veronica and had a great time! It blows every day 9m & 12m kites got used a lot. Many good spots near there to choose from and very affordable to stay and live like a king. Possibly the best looking women per capita in the world in Barr...

Re: North navigator control bar

I have a new to me Navigator 2020 edition bar that so far is a solid bar with great flag out system and all that. But the swivel really does kind of suck, mine was stiffish right out of the box compared to some others but it was a little over tight in assembly. Taken it apart and trouble shot it a c...

Re: Carved Imperator

I don’t know I’ve seen those foot straps break for a couple of people, the ends pull though the base and crack the plastic slots.

Re: Warm booties for reptiles

They have some more seriou...

Re: Hand numbness at night after big sessions?

Well lets not get carried away and diagnose this guy with a cervical disk herniation over the internet! Could be as simple as super pumped scalenes pressuring the brachial plexus (jacked muscles pinching nerves to the arm) Riding technique, sleep posture, weekend warrior syndrome, or any combinatio...

Hand numbness at night after big sessions?

Hey Folks, Anyone else notice hand/arm numbness while sleeping after a long powered sessions? I will go to bed super exhausted expecting to sleep hard but end up waking up with my arms "asleep". Laying on my back with arms over my head or on my stomach (no pillow) seem to be common culprits. Anyways...

Re: whistling TT ?!

The newer ones with the ribbed plastic fins tend to whistle, switch to old style without the rib or G10 fins..

I quick released, but didn't notice flag out line had broken, so the kite flew away. wind was side on so they rescued my kite on the beach. Really not happy with what happened and...

Re: Bar for naish kites?

I also got fed up with the Torque bar flagout line issues and lack of spare parts availability. Just got a 2020 North Navigator 45-50cm bar for my 2017 Pivots, flown with it 3 times on 9m & 12m and so far I like it. Just having the confidence in a new bar that doesn’t screwup is worth it. 22m lines ...
