Re: Roll Tacks: Stuck at 25% Success - tips?

Yes very nice! And clearly foil kite technique, you can see the kite pulling her over, good timing! This is obviously a bit different with a LEI, where there is less pull and a much shorter "window" to make the switch. The smaller and faster the kite, the more difficult it gets. On a LEI, you need t...

what would happen if you release the QR?

should be working fine, or?
Yes, in my set up no problem. Release would solve it if it gets permanently stuck.
But it came out by itself when I fell in... I obviously didn´t make the tack :-?

Re: new failure mode: micro leash got hooked on bar end

I had the same on one occasion, I ride a similar minimalistic bar for foiling. Also no real issue, I crashed and that was it. Similar situation, I was tacking on the foil and fully cranked the bar to bring the kite over and the bar hooked into the short leash. I believe its a freak event, not really...

Re: Kite Line lengths?

For inflatable kites: With short lines you sacrifice performance, mainly low end and upwind ability (wind window gets smaller). The upside is that the kite is more reactive, which is nice for certain tricks. So for cruising, long lines, for tricks, short lines. Some tricks, like the "around the worl...

Re: Any known problems for Duotone Dump Valve issues/leaks?

By Dump valve, are you referring to the valve near the wing tip of the kite? Or the inflate/deflate valve in the centre? Its recommended to leave the valve at the wingtip in the closed position when packing up and storing as it prevents it from getting deformed. I have seen problems in the past wit...

Re: Any known problems for Duotone Dump Valve issues/leaks?

Hi,

Same here. I have the problem on two of my three kites from 2019. Very strange, I handle my gear with care.
Never had any issues before with dump valves on North/ duotone kites. And I used the dump valves all the time when packing the kite..
Any response from warranty?

Re: Flat water family spot (Greece, Cyprus)

Naxos: The spot is usually not very crowded (see video.., that is pretty normal), there are a few days in August where it will be a little busier, but you can time your sessions around the busy times (in the morning or the evening nobody is on the water), its blowing every day anyways during those m...

Re: Flat water family spot (Greece, Cyprus)

Most spots in Greece are either flat or choppy, no "real" waves there. But the wind is super reliable and strong in summer. To combine family and kiting, I can recommend the island of Naxos. The spot (Mikri Vigla) is relatively choppy, but beautiful scenery, you can rent all kinds of acomodation (go...

Just in case somebody has not seen it: This is the video that tells the same story. Worth watching again, especially if still in confinement!



Enjoy!
