Re: Switch Helium 3

Yeah upwind is not great either. My elements were all better kites. The customer service has actually gone downhill since the Bill Hansen designed kites days. I am really over Support using my bars/lines calibration as an excuse for my Helium not flying properly. When you're an online only shop, yo...

Re: Switch Helium 3

Well I got new Ozone bars which are perfectly calibrated and my Helium 3 still drops out of the sky every now and then. Even when it was gusty 19-24kn, the 12m seems to come way too forward at the Zenith and hindenburgs. Even with the more stable bottom LE bridle setting. It is literally the worst k...

It's a popular collaborative work chat app too. Especially in IT companies :thumb:

Re: Switch Nitro 7

Yeah, I'm sure they do some minor adjustments but it is pretty disappointing to just buy other designs after all the awesome Bill Hansen designs. I'm yet to see any non-Hansen Switch kites at my local.

The spider bridle was Hansen's, so logical it's gone.

Re: Harness with Sliding spreader bar

I have the Dakine Nitrous shorts and I run my own line with a shackle. I use it for strapless but use the hook for foil and strong winds. I've had the rope and also the chicken loop snap... I need to replace my old shorts and I can only get the Ion B2 shorts. Unfortunately it's not possible to rig m...

Re: Switch Helium 3

Thanks for the long response, much appreciated! Glad to read I'm not the only one experiencing those hindenburgs. I do not recall pushing the bar out causing it to drop but that's an interesting observation about angles. I think setting the steering lines on the powered knot helps a little bit. Not ...

Re: Switch Helium 3

Having been a long time Switch kites user, I'm having a lot of issues with my H3 12m.
It keeps dropping out of the sky all the time when it's at 12 (and often inverts). This doesn't happen with my Elements 3 & 5.
Not very happy with this kite...
Any tips welcome

Mouth guard?

So I had my first foil board tip meets mouth after a crash. Fortunately no teeth damage but lots of cuts on the lips.

Which makes me wonder, is a mouth guard a good idea whilst still learning or just bad luck.... I'm always wary of the foil coming towards me once I crash off....

Re: Cannot foil

I was also confused with both wings flexing down but that's how the grooves for the screws are. They cannot be mounted any different. And my board is a brand new SS Dwarfcraft. Had no issues with the hover glide foil and shorter solo mast yesterday. It must just be a lot harder to start with this li...
