Re: snowkite boards vs snowboards

Don't care what it's called - if I could get rid of 'edge burn' I'd be happy ! A semi pro snowboarder once looked at my board and said it was the worst case of edge burn he'd ever seen. In my mind I thought snowkite specific board meant less sidecut, true centered stance and better lamination. After...

Re: ghetto rig

Good job!

If only I head a springsteel wire carabiner, soldering iron/tin, saw, epoxy, etc. with me on the beach I'd be good to go.

Where did you get electricity for the soldering iron 5 min. before riding - gas powered ? :D

sorry - had to say it. Creative thinking and a good repair job.

KLM airline have been doing tests and are saying its safe to fly in this small amount of ash (like today). Aeronautical authority in Europe are hoping things are get...

Re: Europe is closed !

No migrations yet, apart from the ones for economy/uninployment reasons. Toby, your right. Everyone is shitscared about it's neighbor, the volcano Katla. In the last centuries it has happend 3 times, that Katla goes off within 1-2 years after this one. So we might be talking days, months, 1 or 2 yea...

Re: Europe is closed !

... Story has it that some tricky Icelanders decided to get back at the folks who want to default on their loans, i.e., most of northern Europe so they set about doing some very strange Icelandic dances around the base of the volcano with the hopes of gettin it to explode. Guess it worked. What do ...

Re: Europe is closed !

Some pictures of the mess causing this. Clouds reaching 30.000 feet and being blown over to Europe. Two figher jets in Finland were caught in it and it ruined their engines (before the no-flyzone alert was given). Unless you have a sandblast schedule for the inside of you aircraft engine. Stay away ...

Re: Ozone Kites - Are they good in strong winds???

Interested in this topic aswell. Ozone is pretty much the only available option for me over here and I've been riding the crap out of my old 13m Instinct 06 (since 2006) and like it a lot. For stronger winds I have an Flexifoil Atom 9m. I started out in 2004 on a C kite and miss the feel of them so ...

Re: open cell vs closed cell or (ozone vs flysurfer)

I own and fly both (aswell as inflatables). Apart from the obvious difference; - open cell - easier ground handling, - closed cell - possibility of water relaunch, less chance of collapses in low wind, I think flying characteristics is just down to design - not because of it being open or closed cel...

Re: Newbie looking for the right kite

For those winds you guys are talking about 10-25mph and 80 kg on skis, I'd say for Ozone kites; 10m access 9m Frenzy (10m if an older model Frenzy) 10m Manta Just find reviews/ads and figure out which character you'd like in the kite. If a 1st kite then Access would be a good choice. It's also the b...
