Re: How to rig for the highest jump?

Biggest jumps have been on my 8m, pretty much overpowered. Kickers are essential to go as big as possible. I won't say the ability of board to hold down power had much bearing, don't need to edge much when you have a kicker to launch off. My biggest jump was also a mistake, God knows how but it was ...

Re: watch suggestions to kite

Basic Casio, from £10-£30 range here in UK. Or G-Shock, I prefer basin as very slim so fits nicely under wetsuit and gloves. I found one buried in sand once, lasted for years ended up losing it so probably still going. I did wear my Tag Aquaracer once -strap came undone and it was loose on my wrist...

Re: Advice on eye protection

Baseball cap is best thing I've found to cope with glare, just pull it down low and don't look up too

Re: attaching the chicken loop through the hole on spreader

Donkey dick?? Even if you have one on your CL already a second one on the spreader bar will stop accidental unhooking - 3 large cable ties taped together works well. Only issue with what you suggest is that the clasp on some QR can get jammed in the spreader bar when released. Out of interest, do yo...

Re: Helping Kooks to identify themselves.

You know you are a kook if you rig your bar/lines directly downwind :rollgrin: That one again. I almost always do that, because it is very convenient for checking the lines before launching on your own. But no need to discuss the pros and cons of that again ;-) I rig up directly downwind, it's usua...
