Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Dan...good man....will Till, reduce my bill, now there’s no licence fee, jacking up the price to me? Mr. Till, since you are at it, next time instead of a trip to Patagonia / Fiji / Maldives etc. could you shoot your promos in, like, Hawaii at Mr. Winner's doorstep or something and pass the savings...

Sad, end if story of great brand. Why their not choosed Westkiteboarding ? Much better and much attractive. Or why not Tritone kiteboarding ?
I like Duotone logo better than the North logo. If the kite design technology stays the same, then I'm good!

Re: Italian Kitesurfer dies in Brazil

Holy cow looks like 70Kn wind inside that funnel. I have measured 64Kn wind at the beach during a typhoon and that's how the water surface looked like.

Re: Leash wrapped around harness hook

I wrap my leash into something so thick that it does not have a chance to get caught on snag on to anything. I used the soft black spongy rubber tubes used as pipe insulation from hardware store, but now I moved on to (don't laugh) corrugated plastic pipes used for water drainage in washing machines...

Re: Harness replacement webbing

I have more than fair share of experience in breaking harnesses because I crash hard. Any hardware store will have better nylon webbing than you can get from a kite manufacturer at a fraction of the cost. Get it. Don't go to shoe repairers for the fix. All of my harnesses repaired by shoe shops brok...

Re: Italian Kitesurfer dies in Brazil

Googled Porto Seguro - seems to be a narrow beach with high vertical cliffs near the water edge. Maybe a rotor caused by sudden gust picked him up and threw him down? From the google pic it does not seem seguro to me...

Re: North Trust bar 2018

I'd stay away from using North lines (even free) and spend a few bucks on hi quality aftermarket Spectra (Amsteel, Liros etc.). It will take you 15 minutes to learn how to splice it (Google) and 1 hour to measure, cut and splice and install. Once you have used good quality spectra you won't go back ...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

Q-power with figure or 8 loops, used one line set for about 10 years, been dragged underwater, crashlanded kiteloops, yanked every which way, dragged over rocks and beach garbage, deathlooped... still looks like new. I'm 90kg. Q-power just will not die. But Q-power stretches a little, not a lot but ...
