Re: Slingshot Rev Inverting ?

Thanks for your replies.

Kite was only pumped to 6 psi but as he is learning it took some really hard crashes onto the beach and i was amazed it did not burst !!

As he gets more con fident i will get him to put more air in.

thanks again

Re: Speed 2 19M VS Contra 3 17M, Speed 2 Worth the price?

Guys can you tell me what the top end of the 19m is like for your weight ? I am 85 kilos and years ago had the 12m Flysurfer warrior which i liked but at times found problematic. In higher winds it was a bit of a nitemare landing. Once the wind hit 20 knts + the kite became a real handfull. this may...

I thought the 555 rocked and was going to buy that until i got on the Sinn twin. I ended up buying a Shinn twin 134 x 42 as soon as i got on this board it...

North 5th element leader line question.

Hi guys i have aquired a 5th element bar to use on my North Rhino 04 16m. I have been advised i can attatch a leader line to the leading edge which will enable me to use this bar. leader line length needs to be from centre of leading edge to wing tip in length.
