Re: World class kiteboarding spot about to be DESTROYED!

Squamish is a very unique spot, with really nice consistent thermal wind, would be a hell of shame to lose it. :o

I've signed the petition, please take a moment to help out.

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

.... Hopefully its not all hype ( definitely not - I've seen the extensive development effort invested in the Aluula company and on OR's part on the kites ) they sell the fabric with other brands. Hoping as well as other kite brands adopt, but also other sports and high-strength fabric applications...

COVID-19 / corona-virus may cause a delay, hopefully not too long.

Re: quiver advice: OR prodigy 9.5 vs flite 8/10 for foil + freeride.

Foremost recommendation I'll make it to try before you buy if at all possible. What YOU like in kite is such an individual thing, I doubt anyone here can suggest what YOU will like best.

And IMO I'd forget the Prodigy and replace your Flites with a 10m Aluula Roam.

Re: Who Bought WMFG?

- the diameter of bayonet nozzles is non-standard ... As I understand it, the diameter of the kite-end adapters was tweaked ( adapters made slightly larger in outer diameter ) to keep the hose connection from coming off and ensure the hose-adapter connection doesn't leak. All of the hose adapters o...

Re: Who Bought WMFG?

TIP: ... hockey stick cloth tape ( duct tape, sail tape, any fairly thick and sticky tape will do the job ) and run it around the six inches of each end of the hose. The tape wrap strain relieves the sudden transition from flexible hose to the very stiff end of the hose that has the end adapter fit...

Re: Who Bought WMFG?

... Everyone else makes pumps ... Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I believe it was WMFG that first introduced the vastly-improved kite pump ( taller, ergonomic handle, filtered air inlet, built-in higher-quality pressure gauge, hose tips/adapters that fit snugly and don't leak air, etc ) that most...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

What about opposite flying? opposite flying is when you fly the kite in a direction opposite to the wind. As in you fly the kite upwind of you. Kind of like a Deadman's turn on land with a 3-wheel buggie ? Never seen it on water, maybe riding a foil ?? Wait a minute, have faint recollections of a f...

... a strutless with it will be quite amazing.
With you on that, brother ! Can't wait for an Aluula BRM Cloud. Maybe like a helium balloon, won't come down unless you drag it down.
