Re: keeping bar attached to kite

Start doing it and you will find out by yourself all the tips and tricks that work better for you. It's very easy. Even engineers can do it. (Just kidding, don't get mad.) :P The only thing I can add is that after winding the lines, I put the bar inside its mesh bag to avoid hard parts on the bar ru...

Re: 2004 or 05 cabrinha nitro and recon 2 bar as a new kite?

C'mon. It's not that bad. Are newer kites better? Yes. Way better? Yes. But old kites are still rideable and usable. Otherwise, how did all old timers learn? I learned on 2002 kites, didn't get hurt, and had a lot of fun. And so did a lot of friends of mine. If you can get something newer, get it, i...

Re: 2004 or 05 cabrinha nitro and recon 2 bar as a new kite?

These are the steps to set up the by pass leash, as told by a Cabrinha customer service guy some years ago. I have the pictures, but I don't have time to post them now. I will post them later. Or you could give me your email address on PM and I will send them to you. Step 1 – Run out the lines on yo...

Re: 2004 or 05 cabrinha nitro and recon 2 bar as a new kite?

Also, the power lock bar didn't work very well for me. It has a pin to lock the bar on the harness loop on the full power position. Well, when I wanted to try riding locked, it wouldn't stay locked for long. And when riding normally, some times it would lock. Not a big problem, because it would unlo...

Re: 2004 or 05 cabrinha nitro and recon 2 bar as a new kite?

I still have a yellow 2004 of those in 8.5m. The kite is nice. Nice Cabrinha quality all over. Jumps like hell and turns fast. I always thought the name Nitro is perfect for it, because it's very unstable and if you don't pay attention, it will blow you up. :) As almost every kite on those days, it ...

Re: Average Joe Kite Review- Short Fat Lady Review.

Everybody are praising the Flite - but from the videos and pics I've seen to date - it doesn't exactly look like a wing that was built to last. Durability vs. performance is a good point. The decision relies on riding style and skills and also on the riding spot. If for whatever reason one drops th...

Totally agree. They're pushing it too much. We're still in March.

Re: Reviews on the Naish Fly ?

Has anyone actually measured the Naish Fly? Is it really a 15 as Naish claim on the website but not on the kite itself? I wonder this because I just bought one (2012) and, besides it looks huge, the labels on the bridle say Fly.17m. I checked the same labels on the bridle of my Parks 7 and 10, and t...

Re: Where do i repair my kite. Miami Fl I also need a

Hi guys, I bump this very old post trying to find a kite repair shop locally in FLL. Looks like Adventure Sports just sends the kite to AirTime. Liquid Sports and North Sails ask me to leave the kite for some days to get an estimate. That's ok if there isn't anything faster. Does Water Play still ex...
