Re: Kite designers, don't do this s**t please

You may try this: - Wash with dishwashing soap and dry - Apply shoe goo wherever the EVA foam is damaged - Wrap tightly in cling foil and let dry. The cling foil pressure will distribute the glue evenly - Unwrap and go kiting (if some foil sticks to glue, it will wear out in a couple of sessions, so...

Re: North Rebel 2018

Tested Rebel 2017 9m back-to-back Rebel 2018 7m (on 4 lines). My impressions on 2018 are: more forgiving and better turning, less tendency to backstall, not as excellent depower. I felt less hunting of the window edge compared to 2017, so easier/more comfortable to use. It was very gusty and I chick...

Re: Documentary on Nick Jacobsen

I think if anything it will drive gear costs up, stifle innovation, and increase bureaucracy with Olympic committees telling local councils what kitesurfing is and telling riders what to do. Looking at windsurfing I don't think the Olympics had a beneficial impact. Do you want kiting to look like th...

Re: Documentary on Nick Jacobsen

Olympics = good for manufacturers, bad for riders.

Isnt the airtime thing the same as buying a bit of Tear-Aid type A and cutting it in a donut shape? Much cheaper

Re: Most durable kite bar and lines

For lines, nothing gets even close to Q-Power. My 3 years old regular Q-power set looks brand new. I had a 10 year old set of Q-Power pro that I stopped using because come on, 10 years... but it looked flawless. For bars, I'm very happy with the old switch bar version 2, holding on really well after...

Re: Rider feedback please - Rebel 2018 on 4 and 5 vs 2017
