Re: Mach flott den Schrott: Good ideas for self made bars

Thanks Evan, you are a genius. See picture, but still experime...

Re: Naish Torque Bar - flag line knot slipped through stopper

But noo, the designers are too lazy to implement a 8mm hole through the chickenloop. So they are stuck with a bunch of bad fixes to try to get tiny knot to stay blocked under the stopper. If they make the knot any bigger it doesn't pass through the chickenloop anymore, but instead of redesigning th...

I'm 188 cm x 79.5 kg, so pretty close, tall and lanky. According to the OR drysuit size chart, I should be in a size XL drysuit, but I actually own & wear a size Large.
I am even 1.93 m tall and 82 kg, but still have "Large". Happy with the size. - Tom

Re: Flysurfer Soul

... I know FS recomends 50cm for the 12m, however, I already own a clickbar (49cm) which I use with all my LEI kites and now that I've decided to try a RAM kite, maybe I could save some money and keep using the same bar... ... I find a 50cm bar too small for the Soul 12m, I use 60cm, and still it i...

Re: Flysurfer Peak4 sinking or floating and packdown.

Thanks Frank. I am happy with a Paraglider wrapping method: I begin by lifting the LE at the center out of the water from behind of the kite, water just flows out, this is easy. Then I take in the both sides simultaneously folding it like an accordion, not rolling. Only after having pulled together ...

Re: Infexion Max bar / Seatbelt Quick Release

Hope you can see it better on the pictures below. You can also use it to compensate for a few centimeters of length difference in the power lines. Hi Evan, does it really need to be in one piece? If you splice the second interlocking loop, you are not able to make a brummel splice, right? I would h...

Re: Mach flott den Schrott: Good ideas for self made bars

Just one remark for remembering: Instead of gluing a low friction ring to the carbon, I would like to drill a little hole into the carbon and bolt a ring. Result would be that you can steer it up to 90Degrees, without squeezing the depower line (cause Ring can turn) Harsh maneuvers will be possible...

Re: Hydrofoil low end (~7-11knots)

I always wrap the lines, but I still end up tangled by the "hair lines" of the canopy every single time with the 13m, and then, my fear is that of losing the foil while I'm trying to recover the kite: the foil moves away, and I can't reach it anymore because the submerged kite is an incredibly effe...

Evan - thanks a lot. Indeed, now I see how it works. Brilliant, can't believe that this is really reliable, but will test myself. - Tom

Re: Hydrofoil low end (~7-11knots)

... ... Peaks sink a meter or more below the surface, where they can get caught in currents leading away from the beach. Not funny at all. So: a Peak will give you the absolute lowest wind foilability (together with a large, efficient foil), it will never fall by itself, and it's a pleasure to use....
