Re: New hydrofoil / wave kite and bar: Kauper-XT

My very first bars hat an external eyelet in the center of the bar, but I didn´t like the feeling when testing last summer.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Finally someone with a good and logical explanation ^^^ ;) The looser weave of Aluula is well visible and easy to count in the very first video leaked out by gleiten.tv. And when we talk about puncture resistance, we need to clearly distinguish between - puncture from fine 'needle like' object, norm...

Re: Kitesurf pop-up bag

... If you need extra help in organizing gear to hike out of your landing area, you can also carry a webbing strap or coil of small line around your waist, in pocket of trunks etc. Still, the idea has some potential...
