Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

Haven't noticed a big problem with foils that sink very slowly. Bad points seem to be that you have to body drag upwind more as the foil doesn't drift downwind as quickly (until it sinks). They still get in your lines so try not to let go of the board. The ones I have tried are all lighter which is ...

Re: North Prototype

Looks a lot like the peter lynn navigator control bar. I'm interested to hear about the dealer network. I can't see NTG deciding that online is sufficient for their brand? B&M have built up a good dealer network that they retained when they rebranded (and you wouldn't want the hassle of dealing with...

Re: How big of a problem is this? (Cut in plastic cover of flag line, Core)

Difficult to say from that photo. But the questions I would be asking myself are: 1. Can I see any evidence of damage to the rope inside. Or more importantly - Can I see that there is NO damage to the internal rope (ie the rope is definitely undamaged) 2. Is there ANY danger of the bar sticking when...

Re: North Prototype

I wonder what the names of their models will be. Judging by their marketing behaviour (North Kiteboarding has been a global market leader and one of the world's favourite kiteboarding brands since 2001. ) variations as close as they can get legally with the Boards and More names ;) Any more Suggest...

Re: Saunton Beach death

Okay, I will bite. Sometimes I end up in overpowered conditions in Cape Town on my 7m. If I try to keep the kite low when on the beach, as advised by several folks above, while understanding that the wind strength is less down low, I feel vulnerable because if I get pulled off my feet and tumbling ...

Re: Got my hands on the Quark!

Out of interest, how did you rinse it? Under a running tap or into a bowl of water? I assume gentle rinse in a bowl of water would be less likely to breach any seals?

Re: Saunton Beach death

Matty, a tip: next time it's hooning, don''t put your kite at 12. Keep it low, as low as nine or three, or even lower. Far safer. Regards, Or6 +1. Had to help land a guy who was out on a small kite but was being lofted as he walked backwards up the beach. He was coming in anyway because his board l...

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

Had good results with mcnetts aquasure. I assume its just a local brand version of aquaseal?

The key for me is to use clamps to get the required pressure to drive all the air bubbles out of the seal area whilst it dries (and also leaving it for at least 12 hours (warm conditions) to cure)

Re: Kevin Langeree Makes History as he Becomes Red Bull King of the Air for the Third Time

Jesse Ritchman real entertaining to watch. Extreme move should be more than a $1000 Totally agree! Maybe I do a “New Trick Award” and offer 5000 USD...powered by kiteforum.com ? Thats a good idea. I assume the riders would be able to submit their own trick of choice from the competition (rather tha...

Re: Flite sizing

Hello all, Has anyone tried flite vs Airudh Ultra ? I wonder if sizes are equivalent and if upwind angle and speed are similar (should theoretically be in favor of flite , right ? ) When my flite 10m V4 was in for repairs (again :evil: ) I picked up an end of line v1 Ultra 9m. Very different flying...
