Re: Repair foil kite bridal with fishing line??

theoretically might work. This is the stuff you are trying to replace : http://www.liros.com/en/products/produc ... 9c7f6.html

if the breaking strain is up to it then could be a plausible temporary fix

Re: Bridle lines ???

FYI Flysurfer use "little connection lines" or LCL's to connect the bridle to the canopy. These are designed to fail to avoid ruining the canopy or bridle under extreme load. This protects the kite.

LCL's are simple to replace, which also makes bridle modifications and repairs simple.

Re: New - GoPro Hero4 Session - Waterproof!

That wired review is a good read. If my goal was to simply shoot short kiting clips for YouTube / Facebook, the Session would be more than sufficient wouldn't it ?

Re: Flysurfer Sonic: how to selfland in tight spot?

If it's really to sketchy to self land (by stalling down from 12) en you might be better of dropping the kite on the water, if that's an option. Wet is better than torn.

Re: How do you guys/girls downloop ?

Good vid Heimo - I can see how the carve first works in that instance keeping the lines tight. I'll give that a crack, although I wonder whether that'll leave me enough time to get an S415 turned in time. (I also grab a handful of steering line in LW as opposed to using the bar. )

Re: sanding brand new Spotz 2

Do these pin holes matter if you are not a hard core racer ? Do they affect strength or allow water ingress or anything bad long term ?

Re: How do you guys/girls downloop ?

Hi PF, Good post. I know exactly what you mean and am struggling with exact problem in light wind. I've noticed that when toeside on the hydrofoil, I'm definitely not making as much ground upwind as I can on a surfboard in the same situation (toeside). Combined with the fact I'm not able (yet) to ca...

Re: Liquid Force fun foil

Revhed - why the angst ? It's just a foil board. One of many anyone can choose from. In the scheme of things it doesn't matter - isn't it all about getting out on the water ? I've got one - there's the disclaimer - but I'm a new foiler and wanted something suitable to learn on. Guess what - 10 sessi...

Re: Chrono Launching Question

re your sand question... When hot launching, you'll lay the kite out perpendicular (90 degrees) to the wind direction, and sand the trailing edge to stop it moving or flipping. Once you've unwound your lines, you should be directly upwind of the kite, with the kite at 12 directly downwind. If you ho...
