Re: older kiters prescription glasses how does everyone handle it?

I wear a daily wear contact lens in my left eye (for distance) and my right eye had a distance lens implanted 6 years ago during cataract surgery. The daily wear contacts can be worn for over a month if you care for them. I've worn mine for up to 6 months. Years ago I was told by my optometrist that...

Re: Ozone leading edge bladder failures?

The explanation from ozone was a microbe in some glue they use, although now they/ Iian, states the valves are all welded.. Sounds like the same problem Cabrinha had back in 2001. Supposedly their bladder material was vulnerable to microbial attack resulting in leaky bladders. Had to replace all th...

Re: Off Topic - America's Cup Sailing - Foiled Monohulls

Awesome!! However, forget about sleeping with that sound. Even with earplugs or sound cancelling headphones, the sound vibrations will drive you mad. Something like the sound of sirens sweetly singing.... :D

Re: Harness Modification

Have the same problem with my Nitrous shorts harness. I use a One Back back support under my harness around the waist and it helps me. It has a padded "shell" insert for the back and a smaller one in the front. Not sure what it costs as it was given to me. Hopefully the pics below will give you an i...

Learning Curve

I was just wondering about how long it takes to learn wing foiling for someone who does not kite foil. I've asked some of my buddies how long it took them to master kite foiling and it was way too long for me to try (about 30 hours). Any thoughts on how long to learn to wing foil?

Re: Kite Game

Also, being separated from board and having to body drag back to it before the sharks get to you.... :D

Re: PU covered depower line check?

A couple of years ago I replaced the PU centerline tube on my 2010 Cabrinha Xbow as it had cracked. The old tube had two chambers, one for the centerline and one for the flagout line and was pretty loose fitting (I could spray water on one end and rinse it out the other end). When I disassembled the...

Re: Kite Game

Wii has a kite game which I played a couple of times but it got boring quick as it was not realistic. After you perfect the beta version, you could add different parameters such as weight, skill level, wind speeds, kite size selection, board selection (twintip, surfboard, hydrofoil), water condition...

Re: Self launch and self land option

I thought about holding/walking up the lower back line (wearing sailing gloves which I used to always wear) to keep the kite coming down controlled. Not sure about holding both back lines, flying the kite, perhaps that might work. I like BR44's landing technique, but it seems that you need more spac...
