Re: 5 Top Kitespots in the Philippines

"This is considered one of the world’s best spots for wave riding (side shore, right hander), with flat clear water, consistent wind at minimum 25-35 knots, incredible waves from a friendly 2m to a challenging 5m-6m" Seriously you can write this and still sleep at night? What about the people with ...

Re: 5 meter lines

What size kite was he using? And in what winds? I tried flying my 7.5m Mr Green kite on 7m lines last week. It was... interesting. The wind was a bit borderline for that kitesize, so it was tough to do waterstarts and get planing given the very short powerstroke that resulted from the 7m lines. To g...

Re: Philipines in October?

Getting a pre-approved Vietnamese visa online from one of the many Vietnamese visa agencies should take no more than a week, maximum. In fact it could be done in as little as a couple of hours if you are willing to pay for rush service and fax your documents to the agency. Just saying. I'm not going...

Re: Anyone uses Double Depower option on Rabbit 2.0 bar?

I haven't used the Double Depower option so I won't comment on that. However, regarding the best setup for unhooked riding, the Downwind/Semi fast setup is definietly not the best one for that. Change the frontline setting to "upwind" to get a more C-kite like feel and the greatest boost when you lo...

Re: trouble contacting Skywalker kiteboards

That sounds very promising. The products themselves - the boards - were always top-class, at hard-to-beat prices.

Re: Deathloop: 5th line safety on North Rebels just doesn't

I'll add that any flag-out system tends to get disabled once the kite has looped a number of times. From your description, it sounds like the kite had looped more than five times by the time you tried to release. At that point - after five loops or more - the lines are often so tightly wrapped aroun...

Re: Quick release harness it time

Here is something to be considered and is related to the topic: How will a loose kite act, when it is totally released, and dragging a harness, which is attached to it's chicken loop? In a past KF thread concerning the value of bar "floaties" (those foam tubes on the rear lines, at the bar), the po...

Re: Who Has the Best Trim Strap?

Another vote for the Zeeko bar. Or, just take a North bar and replace the trim rope & cleat with a simple Z-line setup, like knotwindy described. ( Ned, that would also solve your problem of not being able to reach the North depower handle when powered up, in addition to getting rid of the problem o...

Re: Vegas 2013 - Size 11?

I have no idea if there will be an 11m Vegas. However, I can't help but wonder why you'd prefer an 11m over a 12m, given the other kites that you have? Right now, you get a 40% jump in size going from your 5m to 7m; followed by a 29% increase from your 7m to 9m; and finally a 33% increase from the 9...
