Re: How I built my own kite surfing bar

Looks awesome Tomlutz!

Just ordered the parts. I might try glue a low friction ring into the center instead.

How did you glue the metal rods at the bar ends that the rope slides around?

Cheers,

Re: Next foil - Armstrong 1200 or Moses 633

Armstrong is coming out with a hs1050 (high speed) front and smaller hs rear wing in the next month which I'm interested in getting for kiting. They make a 85cm and 95cm mast though the 95cm mast at this point is a bit heavier plate and mast construction. I'm told a lighter 95cm mast is in developme...

I'm thinking of doing a 2 week trip to Maui either early April or May for waves and foiling. Which is a better month or are both reasonably good?

Re: Light Years Ahead - The Airush Ultra V2

Still heavy compared with BRM Cloud D (~30-50% more). The 8.0 D_0 (1.65kg) is the same weight as a 5m Ultra 2 and the 8.0m D_1 (1.90kg) (one strut version) is the same weight as the 6m Ultra 2. 4m Uno2 weighs 1.3kg which is also light (and much cheaper!) compared with the Ultra2 4m at 1.48kg (BRM Cl...

Re: Switch kite EU import tax ?

As far as I know, Switch uses a EU based warehouse for distribution in the EU and the prices already include VAT.
