As Foil said you can roll up in the water to keep the kite sand free. Where I normally ride you can use a puddle and they seem to be still salty enough to prevent mould.
When my kite is wet I leave all the sand on it to absorb the water. I keep my kite in a locker, I can't hang it out to dry.

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

It's just pathetic that people need to complain on everything they don't have or can't afford.

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

And when one of those Clique bars does show up on the beach, most non Clique bar users just laugh at them for both price and the complicated nature of the mechanism. You go to the beach to do one of the most epic sports you can do and yet you feel the need to laugh at others about their gear? I don...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

So you're basically promoting the click bar.
If you don't want to trim, then you should use a bar that doesn't have any trimming clutter. Just like the click bar.

After all, it's still the kiter's choice to trim or not. Having a click bar or a classic system doesn't change anything to that choice.

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

Which bar shortens the depower throw then? Bars with or without PU, the depower throw is always the same no matter how much you shorten the frontline.

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

Depower throw doesn’t change when you depower the kite. I don't think that's applicable to any bar out there. The depower rope is above the depower throw part, not the same part. But I agree on the other points, the click bar is just the best thing you can get. If it's worth the bucks, that's entir...

Re: Drop Your $&@#ing Kite!!!!

Maybe try the same? Go downwind of them and keep your kite superhigh?
Or when you're upwind, keep your kite so low that they cannot pass under it?

A bit dangerous though, since people who keep their kites in the wrong places are usually beginners.

I suspect those readings to be totally bogus.

Wouldnt trust any of those "world record" claims without a picture.
How did you measure that yours was below 18 meter?

Re: Kite Release Fuse

Nobody weighs the same, so what is 110% in absolute numbers then. And only 110% margin doesn't seem like much. I bet if you do a megaloop, that you'd go over this numbers by a huge margin. You don't want the kite accidentally to detach when you don't want it. Also, lofted? Is that a new word in the ...

Re: Apple Watch Band

Are you supposed to cut out the hole to match the shape of your watch? Or how does it work with the hole? :lol:
