Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I wonder how over time the Aluula fabric will fare, giving repeated stresses and fatigue. Have any tests been performed on Aluula in this area?

Re: Newbie Board questions

Technique is very important. If the kite is low aspect and you oversheet for more power, it is harder to go upwind. Try sheeting out to get the kite to fly at the edge ot the wind window. That may hrlp you point upwind better. Also, turn your body so you are looking more upwind. Where you look is wh...

The paper stated: DISCUSSION: The transmission spectrum of the eye drops under realistic conditions does not show a protective effect against solar UV radiation. However, there exists reduction of UVC radiation in the spectral range typical of artificial UV sources such as arc-welding. We cannot rec...

Re: Leaving bar attached to foil kites: why do lines twist?

This happened to me yesterday for the first time on my Soul 12m. I was very careful unwrapping the lines laying them out. With the kite in the air I tried luffing the kite. That did not work so I landed the kite and shook the mixer and bridle, relaunched and everything was ok. My opinion is that the...

A good marketing song for OR would be AC/DC's song "Back in Black". Check out the lyrics.

Re: Cabrinha 2020 Product Videos

So with the new kite ripstop material...does this make this 2020 kites heavier than the 2019's? I believe the weight goes up by 1 to 3 grams per square meter of canopy material. However, you can offset this massive increase in weight by farting into the bladders. (methane is lighter than air) Actua...

Re: We pumped a kite with Helium - any difference?

Now that would really be global warming.. :D Also, back jn the day, early 2000s, on Kitesurfingschool website, it was suggested to fill up a kite with helium to prevent a kite from Hindenburging. Nobody did it until now, that I know of. It would definitely be interesting to see if it makes a differe...
