Re: Chen Thrills Home Fans with Near Flawless Outing at Formula Kite Asians in China

Both the articles, the video and the website make it really difficult to understand what is going on. I can see that Taradin is leading the World cup, but nobody else from the Top 5, men and women, was competing in this cup. Why is that? What is foil racing really about? Obviously up- and downwind s...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Lentens quick release just opened mid air? That is a standard Ozone bar?

Vacuum bags

Re: Core bar - correct trim

I have given the bar to the local kiteshop to do a safety line replacement, which looked like a major hassle.
I'll update as soon as I have it again.

Re: Core bar - correct trim

Yes, but the Core pigtails have a length difference of a few centimetres out of the factory. If I trim the lines without the pigtails, there will be a length difference of several centimetres between back and front lines as soon as I put the pigtails back on. My understanding is to trim the lines a...

Re: South Africa first timer
