Re: Cabrinha bar repair advice pls

This vid shows the loops on the mainline, you'd need to splice. The installation looks fun too! Maybe the full replacement part would be easier. Before throwing money at it, be sure the rest of the bar is in good condition, incl. flying lines, otherwise it may be better to source a complete new bar/...

Re: attach carbine hook to spreader bar

Yep, if you want a cheap solution, as below and link.

Seems like you need my " IDD " system :D Inver...

Re: Lacking Knowledge: Studying kitesurfing

Lot of problems there.
Didn't realize it was such a problematical sport.

Researching, exploring and learning are not necessarily problems, when you engage in a sport for fun.

Anyway wouldn't you learn or ask about most of that stuff at your lessons/talking to locals at your beach?

Re: Safety went off after minor crash.

From your title, it sounded like your QR had deployed inadvertently!

A friend had a leash that would occasionally unclip itself after a tumble.
He changed it for a new leash (stronger spring clip) and no further issues.

Re: First kit question

Hi Welcome to the darkside. The windsurfing will help with wind knowledge, but the tendency to grip and pull can take a while to overcome. These kites were known as Switchblade 3's (Pre IDS I think) I had them and they flew fine, from what I remember. However the original bar doesn't flag out like m...

Re: What is kitesurfing for you? This it is for me

Nicely put....chemo Some folks have a rough time wrapping their head around metaphor. . Others, and often the same, were made to feel really stupid at one time in their life so they go out of their way to sound smart. . Often by using too many words or graphs and a big pointy finger. Long, boring po...

Re: Broken control bar

Personally I would always favour new/newer equipment, in it's complete original form to answer your question directly and would recommend this. However, if for some reason a person wanted to change out the 'bar' element of the complete set up, this could be possible and would probably need an experi...

Re: Broken control bar

I think you lit your fuse a bit too early. Read his whole paragraph before ranting; Let me try to clear it for you: the bar is just that. The bar. Nothing wrong with my 2005 Cab bar. The bits and pieces with the bar tho makes a control bar, and than you do this: Matty is funny, one should see his ow...
