Re: Downloops and roll tacks wear out lines

Any move that results in your lines twisted will cause abrasion on your back (steering) lines. I had just noticed excessive wear on my lines (that I have used well over a hundred sessions) and I ordered a new set of lines.. but as fate would have it a rear line broke later that day (while I was dow...

Re: Hatteras closed. Who will get the money back?

There is an airport in Frisco and at least my realty company did me a solid. What do you mean? Hatteras is open if you fly into Frisco? Are they policing beaches? Can’t wait for this BS to be over so we can all get back to social distancing (kiting). Unbelievable how the majority feed of this BS an...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

I am guessing that the Chinese economy will come out of this a lot better relatively speaking than the US. Why ? Something to do with competent, pragmatic, and cohesive leadership vs the alternative. I will say though, when you look at the general leaders or "politicians" in the West they are not a...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

From what I understand is that the kites are significantly lighter, and can be pumped up harder and have a stiffer frame. This supposedly leads to extremely responsive/fast steering behaviour, to the extent that the designers and to redesign the sub 10 kite sizes to slow them down because they were...
