Re: New grip on Cabrinha bar

Hideous bar that one, maybe the worst Cabrinha ever made... Personally I'd retire it but you could just buy some bicycle grip on the cheap. Make sure you check the safety line in the PU tube for wear while you're at it and the connection point inside the red mushroom release. As for board / bar rub,...

Re: That guy is dangerous

Smashed my first Gath helmet in a crash that almost knocked me out (thanks Helmet), and it's saved me from stitches I reckon 3 or 4 times in 7 years of kiting. Crashed thousands of times wearing the Gath helmet including what is arguably the most dangerous positions for neck injury in a helmet, fee...

Re: That guy is dangerous

Sorry can't be bothered reading 12 pages of mostly squabbling. I wear an impact vest, Gath helmet and sunglasses everytime I go out whether it's 6 knots foiling or 35 knots megalooping. Smashed my first Gath helmet in a crash that almost knocked me out (thanks Helmet), and it's saved me from stitche...

Re: Axis Kiteboarding

I really rated the performance of the Vanguard, awesome design. The quality of Axis wasn't great, I broke a limited and Vanguard. Service was slow and unresponsive.

Re: Peter Lynn Nova

Finally got another session in on the weekend. Started off at 15 knots and then rapidly built from 15 to 28 knots. Crazy gusts.

On full depower I could still hold the kite down on the moses 683 at 85kgs but it wasnt easy 23m lines. So I guess my max top end is 28-30 knots, sweet spot 15-20 knots.

Re: Peter Lynn Nova

Winter here and we either get just enough wind to launch a foil kite or it's nuking 25+ knots. So sadly after a month I have still only flown my 6m once...

Re: Introducing the Aluula Project - The Evolution of Light

And I agree about the 1 strut comment, the 2017 Flight already held its ground against other single strut kites, again without the disadvabtages of a single strut (flappy canopy, limited high end wind range). But having said that, if the new fabric is stronger maybe they could build a mono with good...

Re: Introducing the Aluula Project - The Evolution of Light

Really interested to hear how the new Flite performs. I had a 2017 14.5m Flite and really liked it. These days I use the Flysurfer Soul 12m for foiling and lightwind but this new Flite could potentially rival the Soul with none of the disadvantages of a foil kite.

^^agree the sand will go in between and inside that mechanism not as good for our purpose big drawback
Old post I know, but keep the wichard connected to your harness and not the bar when not flying and then you won't get sand in it...
