Re: pulley maintenance tool?

For some reason, most manufacturers but the right version on the bar and the left version at the kite. I think that has to do with the fact that the kite has more of a chance for the pulleys to get sand in them, and if those with the ball-bearings get sand in them they will be nearly impossible to ...

Re: National Kite Boarding Organization :Yes Or No

We might have to go the route of paragliders in that the sellers will have to require license to purchase kites, although I really don't want to go that route, but it might solve many problems in an unregulated sport.

Re: Surfboard recommendations (Surfingwithkites)??????

Yea got to love animated von Misses stresses, I guess some one would have to define those boundary conditions fully and with the variability that exists it compounds the problem further. Also as you've said defining the loads is fairly difficult. I'm not a big fan of Pro/E mechaninca myself much pre...

What happened to the freedom of speech?

This is ridiculous toby we were asking the company to respond and defend themselves from the news of potentially negative practices which are not very truthful. Your censorship of these threads are the same as the government hiding shady practices, just because you live in paradise doesn't mean that...

assuming that this is not just slander, i would say to all lets boycott REAL, thats not a good attitude to take when what the lessons are trying to accomplish is to protect others, not a business model or to create profit. I swear this capitalist attitude will cause a downfall of kiteboarding instru...

not to mention when you are riding on the rail if the board is wide enough the opposite set of fins should be out of the water. So the force from the fins should be pushing in the nose of the board in a towed in fin setup, which i guess will give you better rail hold, but if the rails of the surfboa...
