As long as Toby gets paid for cleaning up after them allowing leaks it is all good in my book.
Presumably Toby won't have to waste effort if people only post links to the other linked sources? So links to the leaked shots on Instagram are fine?

Re: Wetsuit neopren boots not holding my foot?

i had exactly the same problem for many years, even the big toe infection problem caused by the sloppy fitting boot. I have never had a problem since changing to the "dive boot" from decathlon '£13 a pair, not thick rubber, but thinish 3mm soft stretch neoprene upper with very flexible thin sole, a...

Re: Help with removing glued valves from bladder

Thanks. Its had a good 15 minutes in boiling water and no peeling at all so its going to have to be a cut and doughnut job. :o I think how well the first valve goes will let me know whether I bodge the rest of them (this one was originally air tight with a bandage of aqua-seal and electrical tape) u...

Re: Help with removing glued valves from bladder

Thanks.

Glued on the top of the bladder so no problems with extracting. Unfortunately I ordered the regular sized replacements.

Any experience with Acetone/nail polish remover? I'm assuming its a PU glue that was originally used and that seems to be the first port of call.

Help with removing glued valves from bladder

So 4 of my valves on my kite have decomposed and now leak in the hard plastic. Ordered some new replacement valves - but I am at a loss to get the old valve base unglued from the bladder. Its great that I won't need to worry about glue un-sticking but the plastic the valves are made from seems too f...

Re: Explosive Decompression! - No puncture.

I'd have put the culprit as the Maxflow valve. Have heard about similar problems with Liquid force kites (same valve). Not heard about it during a turn though. Normally in a crash.

Re: Mouth Mount GoPro Leash?

I find the tucking it into your wetsuit only really works if you have a frontzip suit. Stuff tucked under your impact vest seems to fall out of the armpits during big boosts as the harness pulls the vest up creating a gap. YMMV? Best solution I had was with a small ski pass reel leash - attached to ...

Re: Core just released: XR6 and XR6 LW

Looking at a 9m really (though probably more later once I have had a chance to get used to it). I have had a few sessions on a friends XR5 - mostly when he was on his 12 and I thought my own 9m wouldn't be quite big enough. I tend to regard the XR5 as about a size bigger than most other manufacturer...

Re: Core just released: XR6 and XR6 LW

1st review of the 8 meter here Hmm. Not the most useful review. I'll save people the effort of clicking on the link and summarise the review: 'Its different from the XR5. Its good for jumping. We are going to review it better later' Nowhere near as useful as the Real Watersports XR6 review. @Graeme...
