Re: True Magazine - Now Available Online

To be honest, I didn't expect to see that inside a Duotone Magazine, but the interview of Dr Peter Lensker about the inside happiness of kitesurfers on pages 24-28 is actually very good.
Well done!

Re: Project KiteWing

Managed to glue my two half bladders together using Aquaseal. Glued about 50mm of overlap. One side after the other, plus a bit of glue over the leaky parts by the seams. Leading edge stayed inflated overnight and is then worthy of reinsertion. P_20190629_165534.jpg The junction of the two halves th...

Re: Best country to be a refugee in claim welfare and kitesurf all day forever

Seems a lot of folks on here have bought into the ‘You’re only worth what you can produce’ thing. It’s not the only way to be useful on this planet. But go right ahead and work hard until you retire decrepit & die. There's nothing wrong with being out of the rat race, downsizing, living cheap, livi...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I think the issue Best had was that the coating film was delaminating from the weaving after repeated creasing. And a BIG marketing issue of overhyping something and delivering it before adequate testing... Aiming for the First To Market comes with that risk! Looks like there are many options in ter...

If you can kite, you can hold a freakin shovel. So I'm not too sure claiming welfare would go down too well everywhere...

Re: Best city in world for kitesurf vacation

also needs to mention that going from one coast to the other can take much longer than 45 minutes stuck in the infamous Auckland traffic, and quite a few spots need a deep local knowledge of the suitable tidal conditions. Over summer, Nov to March, Christchurch is typically windier than AKL, with co...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I'd say so, but it'll take you lots of trial and error to find out how much pressure is enough pressure for your needs. And it may slightly vary due to temperature, sun, sudden cooling from dunking kite in the water... So it's probably easier to pump it rock hard at all times which ensures it's alwa...

Re: Cabrinha foil double agent on a crazyfly f-lite board

Use 2 of the existing inserts and drill two more holes wherever needed. Those no-volume, TT-construction boards can be easily drilled and a M8 bolt going through with appropriate cup washers and nuts will be just fine. And it will be probably much stronger than the inserts or the threads in the foil...
