Re: Possible Scam - Buyer Beware

.... That's the great thing about using PayPal, they will shop vac that money back to you if an online transaction goes sideways.

Re: valve delam time - time caught up - what glue?

Superglue won't work. It will get brittle and hard. You want a glue that remains flexible and, of course, waterproof. As others have said, Aquaseal is your best bet. Definitely put weight on the glued valve while it dries (a barbell weight with valve positioned in the hole works well).

Re: Cabrinha Apollo

I really wish Cabrinha was still making the Apollo. Those who ride them know the unique advantages..... Bob www.kiteridersllc.com bob@kiteridersllc.com +1. Great kite.

Must be the Naish Pivot isn’t it as proven by The king Mr Langree having won the king of the air three times on Naish kites and two of them on the pivot
Maybe that has a bit more to do with the rider than the kite?? :thumb:

Re: what is slack?

"Pop": lines maintain tension and maintain power (for boosting, full-powered tricks). Slack: lines lose tension and lose power (for handle passes). Drift: lines maintain tension but lose power (for wave riding). "Pop" is usually used to describe board reaction, so I put it in quotes. But I like edt'...
