Re: North Rebel 2007

I own 3 North kites from 2007 including a Rebel (though of a larger size); have not had any general reliability or quality problems with them. So if you like North kites in general, this particular year should be fine too. Most of fixing I have done on my kites has been related to valves (some air l...

Re: North Dyno 2012

Does it have one-pump system or one needs to inflate all 8 points?

Re: Underground Race Board 2012

I wonder about that volume spec - 210 liters. It means that in most places the board would need to be around 20cm thick. If I look at Mikes lab page ( http://mikeslab.com/kbL12.htm ) the board does not look that thick.

Re: Props to Naish and Venturi questions

Thanks for the answers, I am really interested to try (just need to wait until all ice melts...). I am also considering alternatives, e.g a 'freerace' board like airush sector or north freerace, or a race twintip like flysurfer flyrace. But in this I guess one only knows his preferences by testing i...

Re: Slow 7m kite

Flying speed depends a lot on the setup; a depowered kite may get very jumpy, a powered one is usually slower. I have a 7m Rhino that used to be very scary with my usual bar and line length setup. I added about 10cm to front lines and now the kite is much more controllable and has steadier pull.

Re: Props to Naish and Venturi questions

The boards have a lot of volume so you can almost balance on them. I did not find any spec on 190x70 board's volume, but it seems to be big. Say, if a 70kg person stands on it, does it still float? Another question - if I want to ride reasonably long distances in choppy sea, how easy and comfortabl...

Re: Delta/C With 3 struts......is one-pump necessary?

One pump should be eliminated! It is a safety hazard if you lose any strut or air you lose the kite. If its in in deep water now you have lost extra floatation and have to fight swimming back with a water filled sail. I'm anti one pump! It is not really correct. I can't speak about all one-pump sys...
