Re: Snowkite harness options?

:o Interesting you mentioned the pivoting hook. I kite with very few people and typically in the snow so you are all covered up. I didn't realize until I replied to you that it, the hook, is not common. Gear inspection is more important to me as I get better. Never really thought much about gear fai...

Re: Avalanche video

That makes sense to me. The wind front that is! Not having any of the proper gear: beacon, probe, etc that definitely makes me want to stay away from slopes. So scary glad your friend was ok.

Re: Good time to stay in bed

Saw that happen one time. I was still sailboarding at that time. I had to drop the mast and wait it out for 45min finally some brave power boater came and got me out of my mess.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

IMG_20210121_172723524.jpg :o :jump: Grand Mesa is getting good. Hit it the last three days. Two good sessions by the park and ride. And talked Todd into a late afternoon session at Kite lake. Conditions were perfect. 12 to 14 mph winds with about 1.5" of fast powder on the ice. I cleared a 3/4mile...

Re: Snowkite harness options?

IMG_20210116_145210919_HDR.jpg Here is a picture sorry it took so long. You can see some of my reinforce stitching. It may look a bit stupid but it's super comfortable and gives me something between me and the snow. And since they are designed for the water they can be used in any environment. And ...

Re: Snowkite harness options?

I'm not that good at gliding yet and I do worry about the strength of the straps. The one I'm using is probably 40 years old and I have had to reinforce some areas where the stitching pulled out. If I ever get higher than 15 feet on a regular basis I'll beef up the existing straps. And yes the shoul...

Re: Snowkite harness options?

Here's my two cents I started kiting using a climbing harness worked okay and then I realized I had my Hobie cat trapeze harness. Extremely comfortable, very roomy completely sealed around the rear to keep snow out, works fantastic. I switched the bar from a hook to the proper hook for kiting. The D...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Some interesting things happening on the Mesa this year. The forest service has granted a winter logging contract so the road to lands end is plowed clear meaning parking off 65 is no longer a problem all they ask is that you avoid the gate area for the trucks on weekdays unfortunately it also makes...
