Re: A friendly warning: don't kite in Singapore

Why only 3.5 months per year? Only period of wind? More about the 6 kite beaches. Two monsoon seasons = two wind directions during the year = 2 coasts for kiting in Singapore. Kiteboarding in Southeast Asia is divided into two main seasons. The North East ...

A plastic bin bag can be used as a t...

Re: Who knows of a harness that will pack flat?

Just wear the harness on the plane :D Not exactly :wink: During boarding, you are allowed to wear harness (without metal spreader bar), wetsuit under your cloths and... helmet if desperate for luggage space :evil: Once on board, go to the toilets and put everything in a fabrics bag before the plane...

Re: Please help: stop the ban in Miami Beach

The buffer zone is usually 1.5 to 2 line lengths x2, that is 36 to 48 m The red rectangle is forbidden to swimmers, can be a...

Re: Fixing g10 wings?

I keep looking at the damaged wing and thinking that material is not G10, I have never seen G10 showing that sort of damage, It dings when wacked hard on a sharp edge, and will scratch slightly, but never seen frayed edges like that. Fraying material means it is at best infused glass fibre painted ...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

thanks Karsten - great news and safe journey - look forward to the plans at your convenience - in the meantime I seem to have become distracted by a 6m single skin project! The 2 projects you're working on look really promising. Probably out of topic but pin point for the Monjet Ninox thread: http:...

Re: The Monjet Ninox

I didn't end up make my own ss a hybrid like Monjet but just a relatively simple single skin kite. I managed to do some things/details better than before so I'm cautiously optimistic :wink: Like Pan Tau software on another thread, single skin (SS) SW do exist. This one hasn't been updated since 201...
