. You won't fix the denting unless you recoat the fabric.
Can you recommend any product? For a 30sqm I guess I will need a hell of a lot. But at the same time don't want to add too much weight.

Will also search post, as you have probably written about it before.

Thanks !

Re: Flysurfer Speed3 15m Sparepart Line length

The Speed III has several problems that must be worked thru . Thank you very much for taking the time to respond and sharing your knowledge!

Flysurfer Speed3 15m Sparepart Line length

Re: Corroded Zip!!??

Thanks guys.

Flyfish, did you use a simple Velcro strip (hooks on one side, fluffy on the other)?
Or some more complex double layer design (e.g. hocks on both sides between flaps of fluffy from top and bottom)?

It has the large pre-fill / deflation zip on the top side, which is not stuck in place (open position) with corro...

Flysurfer Speed 3 line replacement

Kite is constantly overpowered after replacement of steering lines (green and red line). Any tips?? Here is the full story: One of the steering lines of my FS Speed 3 15m tore apart the other day during a powered up loop. I am in Goa, India, without easy access to replacement lines. So I sacrificed ...

Re: Average wage for kiteboard instructors?

It really varies a lot depending on where you work (Europe, US or 3rd world) and also on what all is included in the package you agree on with the kite school (flights, accomodation etc.) Here is an article that explores some of these: http://chickenloop.com/content/how-much-do-kitesurfing-instructo...
