Re: Kitesurfing steering lines shorter than power lines

This was with my Slingshot lines. I don't know why but it seemed to let the lines stretch more - perhaps water is lubricating the individual Dyneema strands? I've just switched to Ozone SK99 lines so it'll be interesting to see how they behave after a few months of use ... Great tip on wetting the ...

I'm on the UK south coast, 82kg, 6/8/10/12m Ozone Enduro V2.

I have a Lieuwe Shotgun 136 x 40.5 for 15-35 knots

You'd have to fight me to get this board off me. :wink:
