Flysurfer Infinity Chicken Loop

My chicken loop (plastic covered line) has cracked (see pic below) and I have it taped up for use in the meantime until I can obtain a new one. Flysurfer USA is trying to locate one for me, but I was wondering if anyone has used a different manufacturer's loop or just cut off the plastic covering to...

Re: Flap Modification for Hand held Wings

Windsurfing sails used to have a line embedded in the trailing edge which could be tensioned (not sure if they still have them). Something similar could perhaps be done for wings? Also those wings that use a boom could have an "outhaul" tensioner to adjust the camber of the wing, similar to what we ...

Re: Twin Tip Surfboard

Here's one of my first builds. It actually was a light wind twin-tip, carved good but did not have enough rocker/tip curve for surfing. I put two small surf fins on each end and a fixed fin (2") in the middle between the footstraps between the edge of the board and the center.

Re: Windsurfing legend lists expansive Hawaii estate for $18M

$18 million seems cheap for 73 acres of prime property. Prime waterfront property here in Florida sells for a whole lot more per acre (if you can find one with acreage).

Cabrinha IDS Chicken Loop (2010)

The plastic covering on my chicken loop has cracked and come off a bit (see below). I could not find a similar replacement on-line and was wondering if the 2020 Cabrinha modular connect loop would work with my bar setup. If not, I plan to cut off the plastic and replace it. 20210126_162234.jpg Here ...

Re: Fish collisions

Possibly mullet schooling/spawning...?? Dolphin will herd them to feed on them. I've seen thousands of mullet murking up the water during spawning season and have hit some on my surfboard. I avoid them as usually the men in grey suits are feeding on them too.

Re: Covid vaccine

Here's an older article (May 2020) regarding immune enhancement. Hopefully ADE or ERD will not be realised. Time will tell.

Re: How long is your drive to the Kiting Spot, how long is your Session, how exhausted are you after the session

15 minutes to my local spot, 10 minutes if it's nukin
1-1/2 to 2 hour session non-stop, 1/2 to 1 hour socializing afterwards, 45 min. drive home wash gear
Not really that exhausted, just a bit tired and I sleep good that night, a bit sore the next day or two

Re: What are your (kiteboarding) goals for 2021?

Either have as many sessions as my age or shoot my age at golf. Number of sessions is probably more realistic (I'm 67).

Toby - see how many of your tricks you can do in one session... :thumb:
