Re: Flysurfer Boost 2 free flow valve 2.0

Surprising as I've always found Flysurfer to have excellent product support.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I have never understood why people need (want) fast looping kites.... Jeff gave a great over-view of why many enjoy fast-moving kites, I'd like to provide a more technical response. When you have a fast-moving kite, you can generate more apparent wind over the kite and lot more power than by sheeti...

Re: Flysurfer Boost 2 free flow valve 2.0

The free low valve is actually a Halkey Roberts valve, pretty commonly used on inflatable SUPs and kayaks.

Perhaps there is a marine store nearby you that can provide the wrench ( special tool ) used to remove the outer portion of the Halkey Roberts valve ?

... the alula still feels way too expensive. ...
Had one out for test flight ? If not, maybe you'll change your mind after flying one.

Re: Buying a new quiver

IMO nobody on this forum or no sales guy in a shop can tell you what kite you will like best. Try before you buy if you want to be certain of owning a quiver that works best for you. Put the time and effort into test flying/riding the kites that interest you, if not possible at home, it's a good exc...

Re: Theft Story? Tell Yours

Pretty safe at most of our local beaches, biggest hazard when leaving a kitebag on the beach is dog walkers not paying attention to their mutt, who gives the bag a sniff and then decides to pee all over it.

Now I hang my kite bag up high & out of range ...

Just the frame is Aluula ?
My understanding, it's the LE and strut pockets that are an Aluula composite, and the bladders are a new / different Aluula material.

Hopefully in the future, when Aluula manufacturing is going full-speed, we'll see the development of an Aluula kite canopy fabric.

Re: Clouds are fragile

Im seeing these things are extremely fragile, .... Anyone have the same experience? No quite the opposite, have had C1's take tons of use & abuse for about 5 years, no durability issues, durability same as any other decent kite. Recently upgraded to Cloud E's - Wow, they have improved, makes me wis...
