Perth definitely has the better kiting - stronger winds and more locations. Nice people too.

I watched him fly to Bette Middler singing rendition of "the wind beneath my wings" and saw several people in the crowd moved to tears, I saw that again 2 years later in Adelaide, he represents everything good in kite flying, and he brings something special to every Festival he attends.

The North board you have is pretty narrow. Even my little 122flx is 36cm wide! I think that given your light weight you can get away with a light wind board that isn't a door-like as the heavy guys need. Perhaps mid to low 40's. As you guessed - too much width under a light rider can reduce the top ...

If it isn't shown on their website, perhaps just email them and ask for their distributor's name. For reference - I've had several transactions with Stonker all of which have been without actually physically visiting their premesis (ie contact by phone and email only) and have been very happy with t...

Do you really think the carbon footprint of a kite made in Vietnam will be any different to the carbon footprint of a kite made in China?

Bill, Looking at some of your past designs and this one as well, it seems that you are not concerned if the center of the TE lifts slightly, making the profile more c-shaped at the rear compared to a flatter LE. I would have thought that a parallel LE & TE profile would present less drag but have no...

I think the matching of the LE & TE shapes will be an issue for this kite. Concave TEs are a good idea because they allow the TE to be pulled into a flatter shape to match the bridle supported LE. With the helix, the additional area put into the center section of the TE will have the effect of flari...

The proof will be in the testing. Any comment on aesthetics isn't really as important as how the thing flies. I like the depower comment and agree that by moving the center of pressure aft you could potentially achieve more depower. Would it result in too much back line/ bar pressure though? Also - ...

Re: problems riding unhooked w/ my cab switchblade

When i start flying my kite unhhoked for about 1 sec. its starts 2 leave the window. Whats wrong? or is it natural Do you mean it leaves the edge of the window by flying backwards? If so, check that it isn't being oversheeted and stalling. You can correct this by pulling in some trim strap before u...
