Re: Small Carry Strap for board after self rescue?

I believe the easiest way is to first detach the foil from the board. (Carry a small hex/etc key with you.) Then the board goes under one hand, and the fuselage goes on a shoulder. You can probably walk for miles that way. Whereas if you have a 90 cm mast, the weight of the [aluminum] foil creates s...

Re: Theft Story? Tell Yours

There is a lot of value in leaving nothing - absolutely nothing - behind. One time, a ranger was trying to enforce a local law which to his understanding prohibited snowkiting on a local lake. [Not true!! spelled very clearly right in the text of the law. And I was not bothering anyone in any way - ...

Re: The first company to produce a quality QR for those who never unhook ...

No you don’t need a new spreader bar/harness if you use only the top half of the Fireball onto either a rope or any usual spreader bar. Works fine and shortens the distance for more depower if that is an issue. If you mean a combination like this, it's very different from the Infexion QR. For start...

Re: The first company to produce a quality QR for those who never unhook ...

There are 2 rubber bands - one to hold the parts together, the other to eject the steel ring (if releasing under no tension). It seems Very Difficult to release by mistake, as the travel required is about 2 cm if I recall correctly (details on his site). [So far I only used mine flying on the beach...

Re: The first company to produce a quality QR for those who never unhook ...

You can buy one today. The plastic housing is a prototype (3D printed), works well and should last a few years at least. Need only one QR for all your bars! https://www.infexion.eu/shop/max_bar/quick-release/seatbelt-quick-release-eye/ I have one. Certainly not going back to the hook and the chicke...

Re: Epic chicken loop design detail questions

Thanks the thewindego. It looks a slam dunk that the centre lines can be replaced without rotor disassembly and I just caught enough sight of the release ball to see that it is a solid bullet spliced to the dyneema. Looks well designed to me. Do you know if the release jaws stand up well to normal ...

Re: DIY pigtails

How does your figure 8 slip - did you try adding simple or double overhand knots? That should stop slippage. E3CE15B9-6359-417D-99B4-41393801CB80.jpeg I wanna have multiple knot options so adding another one to hold it isn't an option. You can have as many knots as you want, without slippage, on th...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Polishing didn't help as the fine sand gets embedded into the plastic making it like a fine grit sandpaper over time. Normal chickenloops don,t have that problem as they can use longer levers and most even have half the force on the release part as only 1 side of the loop opens up Do you mean this ...
