Re: DIY short surfboard leash\tail?

If you have an old surf leash just cut the PU leash part and use the webbing Velcro attachment part for your handle. If not, get some hollow/tubular webbing and some paracord. Tie a loop in paracord and insert the knotted end into the hollow webbing, then tie an overhand knot in the webbing with the...

Re: Convertible challenge

My first few boards I didn't worry about this, used cheapest decent glass and little carbon, but now there is a lot more specialized fabric available and affordable.
But still not $3-5/yard.
Then carbon was super expensive with gulf war and boeing production ramp up... ...yeah i'm getting old(er).

Re: Convertible challenge

I have had the convertible project on the back burner for a while, but getting ready to laminate. I have been thinking of applying the 6oz carbon twill at 45 degrees to get strength, reasonably light weight and ability to tune flex with 0-90 patches and some uni, so the board will ride ok without th...

Re: Beginner question:how to turn kite faster?

To me sounds like he has figured out how to edge the board and pull on the bar. First instinct is often, “it’s not working, do it harder” which only causes failure when trying to gain momentum and speed with kite and board. When you sine the kite you also need to sine the board. Steering kite, edgin...

Re: Hacks for an older, poorly performing kite?

Try tuning it at the bar to make sure it is not being choked by bridle or line stretch etc. does it fly better with an inch or so of depower trim? If so maybe problemIs simply lines. If it is maybe kinda better but still not right when trimmed a little, perhaps bridle?... etc. 200 sessions is a lot ...

Re: Holes in aluminum mast

Isn't discussing marginal weight changes on foils kind of useless for most of us? If you are sticking with a maker/foil set that is coming in at 3.5-4.5kg (ie: the major kite brands) it may be pointless. A 3.8kg foil is nicer than a 4.5kg foil but doesn’t come from the same maker. But going from so...
