Re: North Kiteboarding Meeting in Daklah

That was all bullshit. The guy was a weasel Give me a set of kites or I post them online and f*** up your plans for the launch. That stance was a touch aggressive as an opening gambit don’t you think? A brand doing their job shouldn’t ever have to be in a position where someone thinks blackmail is a...

Re: North Kiteboarding Meeting in Daklah

Given some of the “dealers” that have attended there is no chance of getting through those 4 weeks. Haha!

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

You could make a kite from angels tears for all anyone cares. The sad reality is that until people are actually prepared to pay for technical innovation and improvement then it won’t succeed. The new start ups that were best, switch, eleveight, all sought to provide a cheaper alternative as people d...

Re: flysurfer soul: I need to know 3 things.

I have a 9xr5, I used to have the 7m

I sold the 7m because at 95-100kg I never had enough wind to be powered on it and if there was it wasn’t safe to go out.

I also have 12 and 10m souls

I won’t be putting up my 10 in what was the 7m range

They are incredible kites but not that much.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Genuinely I don’t know how to put this without offending you.. ullman buy in finished rolls of cloth and cut the panels and assemble them, thats it as far as magic goes. I mean that is they haven’t had China sail factory ( google it) lay the yarns onto a carrier film laminate it and then cut the pan...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

BWD You are confusing assembling laminates with actual manufacture. No I never worked in a sail loft and never said I did but I did work for Bainbridge and we did supply all of the major sail lofts with the raw ingredient that they then assembled It also crossed into supply to Neil press kite loft a...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

So this stuff seems to be some member of the PE family laminated to dacron to solve the handling/sewing problems of cuben? This has been done for yacht sails for a while, in hevier weights. Searching around shows several 50-150gsm products integrating dacron and dyneema layers or scrims. Prices for...

Re: Wingsurfing Right of Way

So I am the one that’s been dinking ? Yeah, fast typing. We both look like we have had a few. Maybe try to roll iriejohn out of bed, make him some coffee and breakfast, and he could proofread for both of us. Otherwise, are you down to just bitching about me? No more arguments about what right of wa...

Re: Wingsurfing Right of Way

So I am the one that’s been dinking? Yet you can’t make up your mind if it’s windsurfers or wingsurfers this is about? You have suggested iriejohn is drunk, say the same about me too? Why is that? I mean it’s a strange assumption to make, is it a bit too close to looking in the mirror so you are def...
