Re: North & Duotone - Your Questions Answered by CEO Till Eberle

It's funny how brands and marketing play tricks on us. I saw kiting for the first time in a time and place where pretty much everthing was North, Cabrinha and Naish. And now those are the brands that I buy. Now I have mainly North kites, but I don't see myself buying Duotone's. I foresee my next kit...

Help. Re setting the lines on a 2011 Naish universal line.

Hello, the 3m center line in my 2011 universal bar snapped and I just replaced it.

I have a doubt in setting up the lines though.
Does the flag line have to go through the 4 holes metal cluster?
If so, where should the knot be? On the kite side or on the bar side?

Thanks

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

I hope you're right, and we will last another 100 years. It's so hard to imagine the extinction of our own race.

Stephen Hawkins claimed, I don't know on what basis, that humans have about 200 more years to find the way to live outside of the earth.

Downwinder in Pompano Beach, FL. Where to launch?

Hello South Floridians, I'd like to try a downwinder with N-NE winds finishing in NE 16th St, Pompano Beach. So, where can I launch without being kicked out by life guards or other aggressive forms of beach life? I was thinking in doing a short one first, maybe from Hillsboro or Deerfield Beach, and...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Who cares? There is nothing nobody can do to stop pollution, global warming and the end of life in the planet. It's a non stoppable run away train. When things get really bad, the rich and the powerful will try flee to space stations or other habitable planets and start all over (if they make it). T...

Re: 2015 Rebel 18 Airstyle Review

I got one of these 'rara avis' some months ago. Great kite! Very special feeling on the bar. I used to ride a 14m Fuse as my biggest. The other day, I was by myself on the beach and I couldn't self launch by letting it drift on the beach. I've had some five lines kites before (Torches and Vegas) and...

Re: Air show in Fort Lauderdale. Is it safe to kite?

I got my morning downwind right in time from Commercial to Tiki Beach. The wind wasn't as great as yesterday though, or as forecast.

At noon, as the planes started to practice, there were cops on every beach telling people to get out of the water.
