Re: Seat Harness Manufacturers

Ride Engine is about to release a new seat harness design. It was recently teased on their Instagram account. I think they are being officially released next week (along with an entire line of harnesses). While I haven't seen the seat harness in person, I have seen some of the new designs and they ...

Re: foil cavitating, ventilating, broaching, solution

I don't know if this is related, but when we ride our race gear in chop, there's often a point of sail that above a certain speed you get a sucking/ventilating effect in crosswind swell. So the setup is wind and swell not perfectly aligned, going downwind fast, as you ride through a cross-swell, som...

Re: thinner race lines on my slingshot compstick,,,recommendations

SK shapes sells racing lines in Europe, shipping to US is cost prohibitive for just a line set.

I buy Liros DC in bulk from Greenhat and splice my own. If someone would like a set made, shoot me a PM.

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

countries who heeded the scientific advice and locked down early and fast were able to control the spread of the virus. Here's a meta-analysis that supports that point: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/eclinm/article/PIIS2589-5370%2820%2930208-X/fulltext From the Discussion text near the end: "Th...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

it is fear mongering and an outright lie, to attribute everything bad to AGW AND imply that it would not have happened if we cut CO2 emissions to zero. Prior to the industrial revolution our CO2 emissions were far lower. Now they're much higher. CO2 emissions increase the capture of heat energy fro...

Re: Hydrofoil low end (~7-11knots)

I wouldn't recommend a foil kite to anybody. That's a choice you should make for yourself after having done your own research and thinking it through for yourself. For most of us, as has been said, a lightweight LEI about 12m should be ample. The advantage of the LEI is simple. It turns faster, and...

Re: waxing kite lines

Why are you guys applying a sticky material to your control system? Wax is basically just very hard glue, and glue+sand = equipment failure, if you don't melt your lines in the process. It's amazing to me what people will try to do in order to avoid conducting proper preventative maintenance on life...

Re: How to remove salt(?) residue (binding) from twintip

This thread is absolutely ridiculous, how is this even real???? Scratches on a kiteboard? You mean that thing you stand on the beach on then drag across the sand into the surf? I mean...what the hell is this?

If your buyer wants a mirror finish, tell them to google "Wet Sanding."

Re: Compressor

Just be careful you don't over-pressurize your kite, the battery powered pumps I've seen for SUPs and stuff all go up to the high teens in pressure and most kites are designed for 8-10psi.
