Re: Parkinson's and kiting

Hey,
My bandmate has the same diagnosis since 9 months. His symptoms were worse. But now after 6 months of therapy and medics he s doing fine and he s able to play guitar and drums again. I bet the right medicine will fight the tremor and keep you kiting for years and years. Good luck !

Re: Advice on fixing pinholes on canopy

A drop of epoxy glue or shoe goo is also perfectly fine for pinholes (diameter 1 or 2 mm) I find this solution very intriguing. I've been messing around with Shoe Goo on other fabrics and it seems fine. Next I'll try it on a piece of ripstop if I can find a scrap piece. I think this merits further ...

Re: Problems with Naish Pivot 2016 14qm

Now that s really interesting. I remember Damien Girardin pointing out in an interview that a pivot easily can take 10 psi and he would recommend that (I think I read it in a printed magazine, so no link here). Since I read that, I pump em really hard and feel fine with them.

Re: Problems with Naish Pivot 2016 14qm

I got the Pivot 14 / 2017. No pulling like hell over here. Pretty smooth. Not an upwind monster, but well okayish. Regarding the flapping: the pivot needs some real pressure: give him 10 psi and another try.

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

Ah, sounds reasonable. So how many people of the 500k dead bodies really died from a shark attack and got tested on Covid afterwards?
