Re: Got my hands on the Quark!

On the Gopro Fusion, I have edited videos using the ipad app. If you stand and hold the ipad and move it around to frame your shot then it's easy to keep the horizon level and to keep a specific object centred in the frame. FIsheye distortion is a matter of choice when choosing your zoom. It's tempt...

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Switch kites in general. 1/3 to 1/2 the price of the name brands. Does everything at least as well. The first kite was a half price 7m Element from an end of model runout sale. It's still my most used kite. The 4m Element is also a hoot. Such fun in 30+ knots but still works down into the teens. J S...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

Short answer, yes I now wear sunglasses. I used to wear them sporadically in the past. I live in Australia. Kite almost every day all year round. I guess about 1/3 of people wear sunglasses. Everybody should wear sunglasses. The effects of UV are cumulative. Not everybody will get eye problems. The ...

Re: harness choice, doctors tale of woes.

If your waist harness is riding up then you're doing it wrong. You have the harness incorrectly adjusted and your posture is incorrect. The waist harness need to be snug, but not super tight. If it's too tight when it gets pulled upwards it will ride onto your ribs and chest and get stuck there. If ...

Re: Hard shell harness for foiling?

I bought a Mystic Majestic X. I love it. It takes a up about half the room of my old harness in the gear tub. Dries quicker. Weighs less. Works at least as well. Much easier to open and close on the Clicker 4.0 thing. It has a leash anchor point on the spreader bar. There's a noticeable "edge" I can...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

... Define what wave foiling properly is? Is it trying to copycat surfing with a device that is never going to ride like a surfboard? .... My initial reaction is, why define it? You'll know it when you see it. It looks good and looks like something I would want to do, even if I can't do it The only...

Re: some proper Wave foiling with a Kite

I kind of agree. While this certainly is impressive riding, I don't see the point of foiling in these conditions. ... I agree with the comment, but you've got to start somewhere. If people don't go out in the surf and get experience then we'll never learn how to properly surf on a foil. Imagine a f...

Re: Moon on a stick?

Thinking that I want a new surfboard that I can surf, kitesurf, and attach a hydrofoil to when needed into a tuttle box on the board which I would have to router out. Does anyone do this, or am I wanting the moon on a stick? Short answer, of course you can. You can do anything you want. You just ha...

Re: Small modification to Moses T60 board idea - your thoughts?

Get some conical washers and countersunk screws. The washers are pulled down into the deck pad and you're left with a smooth flat surface to stand on. You can still feel them with your feet so you've got tactile feedback for foot placement.

Re: Splicing kite lines for beginners

Yes. Or a bent piece of wire will do the job.

BTW A chord is a set of notes played together. A guitar string is a piece of wire.
