Blown or deflated LE while on water

Has this ever happened and if so were you able to self rescue with the kite or did you have to ditch it? I know there are many variables like waves simply washing your gear in or whether the struts are still inflated. Even though it hasn't happened to me it seems like the kite would be a safety liab...

Spreader bar hook dangers!

Ever had your kite bar stuck in your spreader bar hook? I haven't but when you look at most of those things, they look prime for getting a bar wedged in there. Ever had your donkey dick hang up on your spreader bar? I did once snow kiting when the donkey dick was frozen and hard :nono: . Pulled my Q...

Re: North Rebel dog years?

My guess is that it would end up changing the kite's dynamic for the worst and is just a way for North make more money. Makes a lot of sense to take a kite that has been tweaked to perfection for a decade and then radically change it. The fact that the North rep on this thread has not chimed back in...

Re: North Rebel dog years?

That would be fuc*ing ridiculous! 5 lines is why we fly Rebels. If it ever went 4 I'd be gone from North.

North Rebel dog years?

Hi, I have been flying North Rebels since 2008 and am aware that there were a couple of "dog years", when the Rebels were not at their best. I currently fly 2011 and 2013, which I like a lot.

Re: Ride Engine rope slider bar on Dakine shorts???

That could work. And only 5 questions:-) 1) What type of rope is best? 2) Where do you tie it off? Inside the strap attachment? 3) What type of ring do you run? 4) How much slack do you leave in the rope? 5) And most importantly.....does a standard chicken loop (I ride North) safely slide out of the...
