Re: single line stretch problems

Just my 2cents. Bad quality or damaged core in the line that stretches. I any case you should change that line or both front lines. If you strech the line that often, there is something wrong with it. If you are looping the kite often and hard I would go for a sk 99 or similar with durable thickness...

Re: heli loop not providing lift

The heliloop creates kitespeed. That temporary overspeed can be used to make the landing softer by pulling the steering lines after the the heliloops. It's the principle that paragliders use when they increase the speed by spiraling downwards before doing for an example a wingover. First increase th...

Re: lighter harness for foiling?

I'm looking for a new harness since my old north is falling apart. The tunafish harness which are used by many racers looks good. Seems to be light and enough support. Also looked at the Peter Lynn harnesses but hard to tell if they work the way I want. If anyone use them please give a review! I've ...

Re: I bought a speedboard!

How long lines do you have when speedkiting? Maybe I'm totally wrong but I'm thinking of short lines. You are powered up with a big kite (related to windstrength). Then you shouldn't need that much extra power to get up on the board. Or do the board need massive power get going? Any suggestions of l...

Re: I bought a speedboard!

I have a good spot. It is offshore with some really low islets upwind. I can go from 5-50m downwind of the islets. I think can get true wind from 90-135 and degrees and even lower at the end, with mirror to 10cm waves. 50 to 100cm deep. The strip is about 500m. First 200m have some chop and the rest...

I bought a speedboard!

More or less by acciden't i bought a speedbord. It's an Xelerator (starboard tack) that I got for almost no money. It has a superthin 40mm fin in back and a marginally thicker 50mm fin in the front. It also have some lead in the front. . I love to go fast and outspeed the local windsurfers at our lo...
