Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Do you snowboard on tarmac or rocks or something like that? My snowboards have been gone on for years and years, while I'm often doing boardslides. Just going downhill and jumps doesn't really wear out my board. Same with my TT, it only wears out when I start in the sand. And it's going at a slow r...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Board- This is a tough one TT-100-200$ That seems a bit cheap :o Yeah it probably is but i guess i don't value a TT much. I've always viewed them as tools like a hammer. Now directionals and foils I value more as vehicles thus a higher value. I guess there is more thought in shapping a board rather...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Wow thanks again Down Under! Everything you mentioned makes perfect sense. I do think its vibrating alot I cant feel it but surely its happening. I will certainly put some kind of pad inbetween the wing and fuse. Like you said it would cushion and allow for more space in the hardware to clamp tighte...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Re your back wing, it might be that your bolts are just not long enough (or thread on inserts in a fuse)? We have a lot of 316 here, they are cheap and I replaced it all. I think the bolts are too long and need to shortened to clamp down harder. Do you know of any other way to attach the wing? You ...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

It is time for an update! How is that foil Tegirinenashi bought working out? Spork rode it once? A bunch? How is it holding up? Any issues? How much use has it had? Anyone else using one and happy with it? Just guessing, but figured Tegir would have said a bit more, but this thread has been cricket...

Re: The next big advancement in bars

This was actually done many many many years ago. with the center lines to the outside of the bar. Although the bar takes some stress most of it is on the outter ends with composites and the quality of bars these days along with the centerline safety i think it would be going backwards in terms of st...

Re: beginner foil

I'd say Foil has it about right. Everyones learning curve will be different if your a newer kiter with limited directional experience and soso kite skills the learning curve will be like climbing mount everest. I was told over and over how hard it was how weird it is and how bad the crashes are. Whi...

Re: beginner foil

ive got the north speedster and north pro foil board. Still getting use to it as im changing foils constantly im on my 3rd one in less then 2 years. The speedster so far is pretty forgiving and the winglets seem to keep it from stalling when really cranked hard on its side. For me it lacks top end b...

Re: Bladder repair on RRD Obsession 10.5 mk8(2016)

I've been having super bad bladder luck the last couple years. I hate to say it but replacement bladders are the only way to go. No guessing if the patch will hold or if your seal is tight. I've tried the iron trick, the type A trick, the only one i havent tried is the impulse sealer don't really kn...
