Re: Ozone leading edge bladder failures?

Happens every now again, most of the kites are made on the same factories, they probably messed up the chemicals again and bladders are leaking. Heard this stories a lot from kite brands, which sucks as it's not their own fault but factories. Ozone is very proud of having its own factory that it sh...

Never seen an Ozone-kite fail.

The struts do leak though.
I love the contradiction there :lol: leaking struts isn't a failure?

The *only* kites I've seen fail are Ozone. Oh, and an ancient Waroo.

Re: Wing loading as a metic

Wing loading is essential if you are foilsurfing. When kitefoiling it is partly essential yes, you are right. But only partly and not proportional, because when heavier you use a bigger kite, thus not needed a similar bigger sized wing. Sorry to muddle your info up :o full-on fail mode today, me. T...

Re: Wing loading as a metric

DOH :oops: Funny, cos I originally worked them out in g/cm2 then thought it'd be better to do kg/m2 to compare them to the chart on Wikipedia :lol:

Wing loading as a metric

...for choosing a foil for your weight and style. Thinking out loud. So for surfing around, catching swell and using small kites, I think a big wing is great and love my 820. Peter Frank thinks it's way too big, and I think I know why he thinks that :D and why others use such smaller kites than me. ...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Hi, does it rally help significantly to use a bigger frontwing/Is it really worth investigating in another wing, I am pretty happy otherwise with mine? How big should I go, compared to my 2018 540 sqcm duotone GT wing? Will I not loose the speed characteristics and turnability (for example in gybes...

Thanks for the instructions. what i am not able to figure out is how to move the front foot? I can obv...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Thanks again for all the Input, but could you also Mention how Long/how many sessions you took to get it dialed in? Knowing how long it took someone is artificial because you don’t know how often they went, how long they were out when they went, their experience with directional boards, what kind o...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

Thanks again for all the Input, but could you also Mention how Long/how many sessions you took to get it dialed in? 3-400 sessions I would guess, took some years to learn :roll: Could do it occasionally pure luck and very rare when starting 5 years ago, after a year on the gear back then - but it i...
