Re: Cabrinha bars

Call Jeff Howard at kiteboarding.com and he’ll make you a line. And it might be actually a better/stronger line than the original

Re: Moses fuselage to mast screws keeps coming loose

M6x25 (and 5mm shorter for kite fuselage) socket cap stainless - most of hardware store would have them. When I had 680 the countersink bolts were loosening a bit more, yet again - tighten them after a first and second session and they’ll stay put I bought some washers and they didn't fit in the fu...

Re: Moses fuselage to mast screws keeps coming loose

... I'm using the 710 fuselage with the socket cap bolts and washers. I don't even know where to source replacements for those in case I lose one/them. M6x25 (and 5mm shorter for kite fuselage) socket cap stainless - most of hardware store would have them. When I had 680 the countersink bolts were ...

Re: Moses fuselage to mast screws keeps coming loose

I don’t think there’s any play there. Re-tightening the bolt after first session or two lasts very well. On OP picture a countersink bolt is pictured (those were used for 680 fuselage) and they are not that easy to tighten right and also they need to be re-tightened more compared to later version of...

Re: Are all mast bases and boards compatible?

Common standard is 90mm between centers of holes/tracks and 165mm distance between centers of holes lengthwise. 140mm lengthwise is common spacing for aluminum fuselages. There have been crazies who delivered proprietary sizing but most mature manufacturers settled on 90x165mm mount standard. I’d ca...

Re: Leading Edge of Kite is Slowly Deflating

On LF kites if you close the valve cap too fish it might equalize the pressure behind/after the valve and the cap won’t hold it airtight.

Make sure there’s no sand in the valve and that cap it not screwed too tight.

Could be valves ungluing or hose attachment leaking or pinholes too.

Re: Best pocketboard for hydrofoil?

I also like the concave deck . It's hard to get used to a flat deck after riding a slingy board . I bought a groove skate with a flat deck but I would get it made with a concave deck next . I did the same, really missed the concave deck so this time around I ordered one with it, should be coming in...
