Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

My dealer is saying Peak4 (all sizes) as well as Soul (10, 12) is back ordered. Anyone have any idea of delivery times?

Re: Kite bladder leak

Sounds like a good way to ruin a perfectly good bladder. Problems would include (1) the added weight, (2) the adhesive properties of the glue causing the bladder to adhere to itself when deflated (bike tubes remain inflated; kite bladders do not), (3) the amount of glue required to coat a kite blad...

Re: Kite bladder leak

Just to clarify. The latex suspension for bike tires is added to the tire or tube before a hole happens. It coats the inside and plugs a hole when it happens. Or you can add it after a small hole and it will plug it.

Kite bladder leak

Has anyone ever tried to use the latex suspension used for tubeless tires in a kite bladder to fix a small hole? Not sure this is compatible with the bladder material but someone should invent a suspension that could be used to fix small leaks or even initially to prevent leaks. Know that it would a...

Shim Liquid Force foil

Hello, I want to try wake foiling and have bought the Liquid Force low aspect foil (http://liquidforcekites.com/product/foils/rocket-low-aspect-wings-2/) and a 24'' mast. I was wondering if there is a way to shim the front and/or rear wing to make the foil more stable at the low speeds required for ...

Re: North Evo Sizing

Hey Mark and others,

Thanks! 7-10-14 ordered. I would like to hear more about your experience with the different line lengths. I will have 22, 24, 26 and maybe 28 meter line lengths available. Do you feel a huge difference for all the kites with 22 vs. 24 meter line lengths?

Re: North Evo Sizing

Appreciate the input. What about going 7-10-14 combined with line options of 22, 24 and 28 meter?

North Evo Sizing

Hello, I am upgrading my kites and buying a couple of North Evo 2017. I am leaning towards a 14 m2 and a 9 m2 but wanted to hear your input. I am 165 lbs (75 kg), 15 years experience, twin tip and dabbing at foiling. I know that the jump in kite sizes is on the larger end but I am worried that the 1...
