Re: 4m SST Taco job

Great feedback, thanks guys. I have indeed put all the suggestions into play (riding vertical, tuning bar, pumping hard, flying depowered, etc) and am able to use the kite. I guess I wanted to see if anyone else had these issues or whether I got an improperly bridled kite which has happened before. ...

Re: 4m SST Taco job

Sounds like its a kite issue I guess. I checked my lines a couple of times and have been doing the same depower trick to mitigate the issue. I was hoping it would be my high wind kite but it sounds like I made a bad buy.

4m SST Taco job

So i picked up a basically new 4m SST for foiling a few weeks back ?and have had some really fun foils with it. However, the kite deforms and taco's under heavy load and real fast shots through the window. I did fix a leak and it has made i better, but even at 10plus psi it still deforms. Using a lo...

Re: Effect of split point on bar trim

The saga continues. I have been swapping out different kites with different bars for years with varied results. For the record, i used the high y bar i use for my Neo's on a small Slingshot SST and it flew so poorly it was dangerous. I was quite surprised at how bad it really was. Any yes i tuned my...

Re: Vacuum bagging aluminum mast with carbon fiber

I guess the motivating factor was the fact i have bent a couple of masts now. Have since bent them back but with the fatigued meta, it just went wonky again. I figured a wrap of carbon might fix em up, but the problems and cost seem not worth the experiment.

Ill buy a new mast. Thanks guys.

Vacuum bagging aluminum mast with carbon fiber

Anyone tried this to stiffen up the an aluminum mast by bagging a few few warps of CF? I know about the reaction, I'm pretty sure it could be mitigated with a base layer of regular glass and then followed by a couple wraps of carbon then a top layer (and thrown into a bag)? I would rough up the alum...

Re: Surf/wave wing thickness and NACA profiles

Ive made a few wings now and can upload pics at one point. My experience tells me that the thickness of the wing is dependent on what type and size of waves you will be riding. My large 34 inch wing is 1.5 inches thick and is is my 28 inch wing. They both are pretty slow but have very good lift in s...
