Re: Florida Severe Lofting Video

People will always try to push the limits. I have also been one of the idiots who have kites in severe Storm conditions. I have learnt how fast one can get lofted and dragged a few hundred meters. However I have to say, after looking at the footage. That the spot was dangerous because of the Buildin...

Re: Mystic Firestarter 2008 FREAK-edition!!! (Safety issue)

Still,

Even thought the safety system is a bit easy to release, it's still a great harness.

I still find that it's the most comfortable harness I have ever had, and with a small mod (cable ties) I have never had a problem with accidental releases again.

Re: Stainless steel in Kiteboarding

Hi Wollo, I can explain to you about the boards. 1) Production costs of Snowboard Tech Kiteboards are at about 100 - 200 Euros. That's without straps or hardware. 2) Then the Company has to sell it to their importers and make around 30% Margin. so the cheapest board costs the Importer 130 Euros plus...

Re: My new Nobile chicken loop

You still need to pull out the pin to release the CL.

The System you have built has major problems releasing under pressure.

Be carefull with that one. Test it under pressure.

Re: Mystic Firestarter 2008 FREAK-edition!!! (Safety issue)

Hi, I just got the 08 Firestarter. I had the Release open on me yesterday ( have the version with the pin going in from the bottom), and I have noticed that the pin is bending. I have used the Harness 4 Times. I have dropped maybe 10 Handlepasses. I will probably put the old system back on when I ge...

If the guy will not be able to make it back on his own, but doesn't want to pay for the rescue, they still put HIM in the boat and let his equipment go. They have never...
