One issue I have had is if my kite drops directley in frount of me. If I keep my board on, the go joe makes it float too much blocking my v...

Re: Bladder Burst

The kite will fly with th bladder missing. But it will fly like a Pig and probably not turn very fast.

I wouldnt say i have bought a kite just for its saftey system. But I do use my 08 Eclipse bar, lines and CL on all my kites from 9-14m of different brands just because of its superior ChickenLoop.

Ive been getting pain in my knees after long sessions, so I decided to try changing my footpads for something more comfortable. I decided on the Luxury Force Comp Lace. Found some at Session1.com although I live in Hong Kong they were more than happy to do biz and they arrived in 3 days(DHL). I was ...
