Elastic Mini Fifth Lines

Does anybody know where you can get the elastic line that's used for some mini fifth lines? My airush smart bar has one so that when you depower the line doesn't hang loose. Not sure if all mini fifth lines are elastic or not.

Re: helmet strap causes neck rash. tips?

I just got a pretty bad helmet strap rash on my neck yesterday. I'm going to try using body glide. It comes in stick form like a solid deoderant and you just apply it where you're going to get abrasion. I've used it for running with good results, but never in the water. I'll let you know how it works.

Re: Naish 2010 bar vs Airush 2011 control bar - which is bet

I had the 2010 Airush bar and really liked alot of the features. Just make sure you take the bar apart and clean/lubricate it often. I left mine as a 55 cm for a few months, and it got stuck that way :cry: Airush was nice enough to send me a replacement for a greatly reduced price though. Another th...

Re: Airush Smart Bar 2010 Jammed

I did receive a response from airush. The response was delayed because of the new models coming out and people going to shows. They're getting me a replacement bar for a very reduced price. It seems like the new bars do come with wax that will stop this from happening. Mine didn't come with the wax ...

Airush Smart Bar 2010 Jammed

I sent an email to Airush, but I didn't get a response. I have the Airush Smart Bar 2010 that allosw you to ride it as a 45 cm bar or a 55 cm bar. We had light wind all summer, so I was using it as a 55cm bar for 4 or 5 months. Now the winds picking up, and I want to use 45 cm, but the bar is stuck ...

Re: Airush Smartbar 2010 - Swivel on chicken loop hard to t

Does sailkote work to unstick the bar pins too? Mine are jammed.

The colors on the 2011 bar make alot more sensse than the 2010. My 2010 has grey back lines and red front lines. One small red "a" on the left side of the bar. At least the 2011 has blue and red pig tails.

Re: Which helmet to buy?

Bright colors for helmets make sense to me so boats and other kiteboarders can see you. Most helmets are blues, greens, black which are pretty much invisible when you're floating with just your head above water (depending on the color of your water). My helmet is yellow. Don't remember the model, bu...

Re: Mako 150 or King?

Thanks for the reply. That's what I was thinking from looking at pictures of the 140 next to the 150. Not much of a difference. How is jumping with the king? really awkward or not too bad?

Mako 150 or King?

Currently I have a Mako 140 and a Spleene RipMax 139x48. I'm about 165 lbs. I love the Mako 140, but we have alot of under 15 knot days. With all the concave and rocker, it's tough to stay up wind on the Mako 140 in light wind. The RipMax definitely gets me up and going upwind in super light wind, b...

Re: how do you ID the model year of a Best Waroo for sale

I've always liked waroos the best, but I've only tried a half dozen other kites. I haven't heard anyone say anything good about the 2010 waroo though, so I definitely wouldn't go with that. I have owned 5 waroos now, '07, '08, and '09. I bought most of them used on ebay and have never had an issue. ...
