So you did not lock you c.loop at all ? I've seen a lot of kiters locking it the wrong way - the centre plastic lock pin has to go UNDER the loop, and into the hook. Many are setting the pin OVER the loop, and into the hook. This looks okay at first glance - but believe me - you will loose you c.loo...

I have never lost it, no. Most are using the lock - then you don't have a problem. If using the bar for school or teaching others, who don't use the loop - disconnect it before going in the water - so you don't risk losing it ! But I've heard that when the bar/loop is dragged fast in the water - it ...

I don't think you can do that, really ! Which rear line attachment points would you use to slow your kite down ? If you use the very aft ones, the kite will feel very lively (not intended...) If you use the front ones, the kite will feel heavier and require more force - but for the same amount of ba...

Yep - we have seen many compressors used here. It takes usually just as long, as they often don't have the power to give the last hard pumps to get your front tube really rigid. And it would anyway be quite disastrous - as you can not control the power as good as with a manual pump. Here you have a ...

It does not jam in the cleat. I think you are using the wrong rope or rope thickness... When you sheet out (power up), you grab the trim line, and give it a firm short pull to loosen it from the cleat, and then you can just ease it out and fix it at whatever point you like. IMO no other systems come...

Replies: 4

Even the newest and best, pre-stretched lines can stretch when used !!! It is quite normal in fact, regardless what they say on the package. Sometimes they don't stretch - sometimes they stretch a LOT. You remove the stitching from the sleeve at the line that is too long, and then you slide the slee...
