Re: Snapped Insert bolt, how to get the bloody thing out!!!!

While the EZ-out tool will work, the hard part is getting the drill bit to drill into the center of the broken screw. In similar instances on other projects, I have had good luck with cutting a slot with a carbide Dremel Tool wheel. then using a straight screwdriver as suggested above. Cut the groov...

Re: Tips and Tricks to Repair Kites - add your experience!

AQUASEAL works to re-glue valve stems. We tried several other products with no success. New airtime valves work well, but can add up to real $ if you have a bunch of valves going bad. Recently, we tried Aquaseal on an old back-up kite. 1) Get real Aquaseal not some imitation (available in dive shops...

Re: need help - slingshot turbo 3 size 14

That particular line is Vectran V-12 (very hi tech, strong line). I had the same issue when riding Slingshot T-2s and T-3s but it was worse because the lines moved a lot more through the pulleys. Email Slingshot customer service, they will tell you the correct length. Don't be surprised if the corre...

Re: Weird hat question

Myself and several guys on the Gulf Coast are wearing these Dakine hats: http://www.dakine.com/apparel/guys/headwear/indo/ Maybe not the most fashionable kite accessory but it is better looking than a section of your nose removed for skin cancer. I find this hat offers decent sun protection. It has ...

Re: SS pulleys .. why still crap ones?

I replaced the Ronstran plastic pulleys on two Slingshot T-3's with better made Harkin pulleys from West Marine. Everything is great when I ride off grass, but the Harkin pulleys jam up with sand worse than the Ronstran versions. At this point I am just mindful to free the pulleys as much as possibl...

Re: Oil Spills and Kitesurfing

Tar balls are washing up on the beaches at Fourchon and Elmer's Island. From what I hear, both beaches are closed to the public. (Fourchon is private property, Elmer's Island is some kind of state bird sanctuary).

Nothing yet in Mississippi or further East.

Re: Oil Spills and Kitesurfing

Hello... your kite is made from oil. Your bar and lines are made from oil. Your harness is made from oil. Your wetsuit is made from oil. Your shorts might be made from oil (if not, they are made from cotton which has its own history)...and its all made in China. Are we happy with BP? NO, their reput...
