Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Please people. The world doesn't need any more baseless conspiracy theories. Let's stick to the facts and focus on the real world. The world is not flat. :roll:

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

I just heard that Hatteras is closed to visitors. They don't want sick visitors coming out to vacation there. Check the county website https://www.darenc.com/ Peter Yes, but it's actually all of Dare County that has been closed to visitors and tourists. That includes not only Hatteras Island, but a...

Re: rear line adjusters for bar

You guys are way ahead of me with your design ideas, so I guess that qualifies me to ask the obvious (dumb?) question. Why would one prefer rear line adjusters over typical front line trim systems? Regis identified one possible reason: high load on front lines vs. less load on rear lines. I suppose ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Humans are not designed to live much past 30. Unbelievable statement for someone living in 2020. Where, good friend, do you get your conspiracy theories and "facts"? :o Except you misquoted me and you are in agreement with me. It is because we live in 2020 and because of the society we have we can ...

Re: Landing Sand anchor

You can't park a foil kite on it's tip? No, a foil kite will generally fold down on itself. It doesn't have enough independent structure to withstand the pressure of one tip's resting on the ground. An LEI gets structure from the inflated bladders on the leading edge and struts. A foil kite maintai...

Re: Handy tricks you only found after beginner lessons

If your kite is in the water trailing edge down, don't try to re-launch pulling an outside steering line. Instead, give both center (front) lines several tugs so that your kite will either "hot launch" or flip over so that the leading edge is down and the kite is ready for a typical re-launch.
