The old and the new in the pic.
Thanks for taking the trouble to post that comparison photo. Everything is now clear.

Given all the other general bitching and moaning and hating on Cabrinha on this forum, I am surprised that this is issue is not more widely recognised/discussed.

Re: cabrinha trimlite bar?

What year bar do you have? The older trimlites got stuck like that, the newer ones have a piece of black webbing sewn in to prevent the trim line from getting pulled in too far. It is a '2017 1x 44 CM'. So, maybe not operator error after all ? :) The photo shows an extreme example of the jam. In th...

Re: cabrinha trimlite bar?

I posted about this in a different thread (https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2404829&p=1102269#p1102269) but never got any comments so I will try again here: I find on my trimlite that if I trim out all the way for maximum depower (ie: pull full in on the bungee), then the termination (thick...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

I wish we did like Sweden. Really ? You would be willing to sacrifice the lives of your vulnerable family members for the sake of losing a season's kiting ? seemingly most of health officials seem to agree that what Norway did was also over the top - and Norway never completely locked down). And th...

Re: Cabrinha bars

I have both the recoil (strap trim) and trimlite style bars. FWIW, I prefer the recoil for the following reasons: (1) Always ride hooked and blessed with relatively steady sea breezes. Therefore, I generally only need to use three basic trim settings: full in, medium, and full out and generally don'...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

Yes Sweden has done very well. I wonder if the 3,225 Swedes who have succumbed to Codid-19 to date would agree with that statement. Sweden has a death rate of 319 per million of population. Compare that with its immediate neighbors, Norway and Finland who are taking more restrictive approaches and ...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

I drive to the beach,look at all the signs that say to make sure you maintain 6 feet of distance, walk down and pump up my kite and go kiting.Everyone else does the same.The crowds who are out walking stay 6 feet apart and applaud us as we put on ...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

so do you really think those same idiots are going to comply with anything written here, or common sense in general? i think you and Adventure Logs both agree that we all need to be smart about getting back out there. Yep, the goal is hopefully common. Get this nightmare behind us as quickly and sa...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

How bout you let everyone be big boys and girls and let them figure it out on their own?? The amount of “Nannying” is insane nowadays. Because it is not just an individual thing. Unfortunately, there are too many idiots out there who won't figure it out on their own. And, if one of those idiots get...
