I've done all of the above (apart from smokong into the bladder!) twice without finding the damn thing. I have two possible solutions: 1) Buy a foil eg psycho 1a) Buy a new bladder (somewhat cheaper) 2) Bring my pump down to the water and inflate the offending strut every hour or so. Has anyone trie...

Jo, that's interesting, I shortened the rope on my SS16 recently. It's a trade off between riding position and depower range, I seem to get the range of oversheet to slack back lines without using the whole length of the rope. I wanted the top stopper to be less of a stretch so I can trim the kite t...

that's so right. the spinny-roundy-roundy-splash-in-water looks rubbish. What about the super-smooth transitional moves?

This happened to me last year. Riding on a humid overcast day but with no sign of thunder or storm clouds.

You'll have to adapt to the different riding styles, but that's not such a problem, I use a very short bar on the AB to compensate....
