Re: Stop this thing

as touched on above there is only one thing worse than a death run.
A flying toeside death run, you need counselling after a bad one of them.
usually the first one you manage, its that scary you rarely repeat it.

sticky seaweed slime, drying to gummy foil spoiler

as in the title. this happened to me a few days back. On the beach with warm drying sun I was playing around swapping wings to see how fast I could push various combinations as the conditions were good for speed. at times my wet wing sets were left on the beach on my board bag whilst using the other...

Re: Stop this thing

yes, its scary as hell. quite a few sessions early on were horrible, just as you get the feeling of being up and away the ruddy thing just wants to go warp speed, and the natural thing to do is crouch down and lower the kite, normally with disastrous results. all the advice above is of course correc...

Re: Minor repairs to carbon wing

A few of us tried to find an easy reliable answer to minor foil wing repairs, Tried epoxy putty and it was poor at sticking, Then we found this JB epoxy filler, It dries grey, so has to be touched up, but after a while that gets to be tiresome, so I leave mine or if very small then use a black marke...

Re: Moses Vorace 2016 vs. version 2? The MAST.

Hi I have the first Voracemast that has a slight bend to it. Can someone tell me if there is any differences to the straight one selling today? Curious kite-addict / Jonas it places the wings around 2-3 cm further back, slightly more suited for using on a pre 2019 4 hole board like the Moses T seri...

Re: Ozone Reo V4 5m anybody compare with V5 5m?

there are many threads about the Reo V4 5mtr, I was thinking about getting one to fit in with my V4 Reo collection of 6/7/8/9 mtr,
after reading the many reviews I did not bother, bad reviews, not one good one.
google it.
the 6/7/8/9/10/12 V4 Reo kites are all good, its just the 5mtr that seems odd.

Re: Moses 2019

I'm willing to pay a little more to get a nice black alu mast with the Moses logo so it matches my wings and fuselage. That Said, they should make an adapter too. lets see just what Moses are able to offer, if no adaptor is available from moses then if I am right there are 2 adaptors being made rig...

Re: Shinn Jackson - Sunburner

shinn jackson was not great (kind as I can be)
4 of us at the same spot agree it was poor,
3 of us had bought one, all got rid within a month.
this looks like a repainted one.
heavy, springboard quality, unstable, try before you buy,
I would not recommend this to a friend.
sorry
mild rant over.
