Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

i am often in a situation when the wind is so light that body dragging is not working out that well as all I manage to do is keep the kite at 12 and wait for the board to come back to me.

wondering how people get to their non-sinking foils in those conditions? if you cant bodydrag?

Re: Kite gear not allowed in Egypt

Any Malaysia, Indonesia, Iran etc stamp will prevent us from visiting Israel. This is not a laughing mater for us living in this part of the World. Fortunately, this is absolutely not the case, even more so, Indonesians can travel to Israel and vise versa is also true. I think the same applies to M...

Re: Offshore windshift ---> Lost Kite

If you are out kiting and the wind goes offshore, it's almost never 100% offshore. Even being a few degrees from perpendicular side-off, you can easily self rescue 'sail' the kite back to shore. Worst case, it's perfectly perpendicular 100% offshore. You can still 'sail' the kite upwind. You won't ...

Re: Strutless Gong Kite Reviews?

I remember paying 70 euros for having it shipped to Miami, but then I had to pay the import duty. You may want to ask Jaime (the guy who ships the kites) to declare it at a lower value maybe... his email is jr AT gongshop.com

Re: Keswick Clarendon Beach Closure

I think we are dealing with a mental pattern here. The TC has an unfulfilled desire to police and control others. As he states he has access to 15 other spots but instead of just going to one of them and leaving everybody be he threatens to shut down the Clarendon park (which is another mania since ...

Re: Keswick Clarendon Beach Closure

I am sure I will be speaking for everyone in Toronto's kiting community here. Could you please update your letter to Mayor M Quirk with the following: " We would also humbly ask you to impose a parking fee of 250$ per hour, restrict access to the beach on the weekends and totally ban the Jews and go...

Re: boxer looping

If this kite has good depower, and I reckon it has if flying very forward in the window as tests say, I would embrace this feature that it has loads of power when looped :thumb: You dont ever need to downloop the kite, at least not when turning or jibing, so if too much power use upsweeps here inst...

boxer looping

Trying to make those loops tight doesn't seem to help m...

Re: Shinn Jackson - Sunburner

my problem with the jackson board is that the pad keeps peeling off no matter what i do.
i used contact cement to glue it and tried to attach it with gorilla tape, nothing helps, the whole thing is hanging on treads now.

if someone has experience fixing it i'd appreciate an advise,
regards
