Cheers
I'll be going to Dakhla, Morocco, there's also going to be the PKRA event end March / beg April.

Flat-wise, i'm having the impression it can easily be one of the best spots in the world. Wind statistics are great, but it's not a 100% like, say, Brazil.

Bye,

Vanni

Suggestion on where/how to mount a gopro hero camera?

Hi there,
planning to purchase a Go Pro Hero 2 cam, and looking for suggestions on where to mount it.
Specifically, helmet? Which mount? I'm scared it can easily rip off on the first bad landing.
Anyone has experience/suggestions to share?

Thanks,

Vanni

Re: Trip to Dakhla in April: suggestions needed

It was, we had two or so really underpowered light wind sessions, I brought the 13m Rise and had some fun looping it but some of my buddies only brought 12m and smaller.

Re: Trip to Dakhla in April: suggestions needed

Spend a week building sand castles last year April in Dakhla. Ok...this is what could get my suicide...in theory wind % is statistically 80%...was it that bad? By the way, exactly in the same period the PKRA event is programmed. Couple of more things: 1- Are shoes really needed for kiting? I obviou...

Re: How to change stopper ball setting on North Trust bar??

To change the stopper ball to the higher load holding, you do need to remove it from the lines and put back on in the other direction. Did your 2012 bar include the micro loop that allows you to lock the bar at full power to the top of your ironheart release? I know North stopped installing, but th...

How to change stopper ball setting on North Trust bar??

Hi there, just received my new 2012 North 5th element trust bar. I'm trying to figure how to change the setting of the stopper ball from the default "soft" to "hard", as i guess it would be more appropriate for old school tricks a-la deadman etc. Now, the manual mentions "rotating" the stopper ball,...
