Re: RPMs being offloaded

You called? Trust me, nothing would give me greater pleasure than to discuss the further demise of a once great brand, but I still have good friends who derive their living trying to profit from it's distribution elsewhere in the world and they are not entirely happy with some of these events.

Re: Core bar - correct trim

Look at it from bar designer point of view He anticipates that all the lines will become even when the kite is flying and that's what you want Smart This is an interesting theory. Stretching / shrinking may take time. If I understand the process, dirt, sand and salt crystals get in between fibers m...

Re: How big of a problem is this? (Cut in plastic cover of flag line, Core)

When you replace it, check the bar inserts, some times after they wear, they can actually cause the problem, so for 4.99 or whatever your local cost is, they're worth replacing or the next one will wear even quicker.

Re: Large Kite that will relaunch

The Nexus 15 and 17 are getting good traction in their LW modes, being 3 strut they're lighter than say the XR series and the Section DNA present in the design makes for drift and foiling, they also come unstuck about as well as can be expected by any tube kite in sub 8 knot weather providing as Mae...

Re: Is there a difference in wetsuit quality?

The worst suits that I have owned - from a durability standpoint - are expensive "smooth skin" suits. Every one of those that I have owned has failed in the first year. Also, you may notice that even non "smooth skin" suits fail on the few smooth skin parts they have, such as a "smooth skin" chest ...

Re: Shall we keep the Lost & Found Forum?

I think that role gets increasingly accommodated by local facebook groups very successfully Toby. I know in this part of the world we have the Camber Group and it's the first place many go to appeal and recover lost boards. Having said that I guess the international nature of this site could be used...

Re: How important are news for you?

Never read it either and I think the sort of news one might garner there is already old, bad or spun news, better to dwell in the forum columns there often lies more interesting stuff.

My take on both: The decision on windsurfing was a just one. For kitesurfing, good swimming skills should be the...
