Re: How much discount on a 2016 kite?

Is this a new kite that did not sell for three years? Might be a problem, what is it?

Re: How much discount on a 2016 kite?

If it's still around in a shop and nothing unusual has occurred in the business, then it's most likely a very specialized type of kite and/or a small size, or their stock taking needs some attention! I have seen some Naish 2016 Torches for sale. Most freeride kites seem to be 2017 with discounts fro...

Re: Got lofted once

It gets quite heated in these forums these days.......! Here's my opinions for what they are worth; 1. Sounded like you were deep ended, perhaps not the best strategy learning to kitesurf. The experience has taught you a valuable lesson on respecting the kite! Most (everyone) probably gets dragged e...

Re: Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Way to go bradders!
You gave it a good bash. Sounds like those slingshot valves were a different diameter to the BW hoses? or somethin'!
A new discounted kite should give you a many seasons of service.

Hope it all goes well.

Re: Beginner question:how to turn kite faster?

This below....... Also anticipate the next stroke and move bar just ahead of when you want kite to begin next stroke. So as the kite dives down, pull up before it gets to the bottom of the stroke. This is the 'timing' of a kite and will vary across styles, makes and sizes. If you haven't ridden a sm...

Re: Help with Ben Wilson Surf Slow Leak

Hi Bradley, Need to first establish a few things (maybe I missed them) Is the leak in the LE or a strut? To determine Pump up kite in normal way, clamp off all one-pump tubes. Now what deflates over time, main LE bladder or a strut? (It would be rare to have a leak in LE and strut(s) but possible I ...

Re: My tube is wet

So what happens to the salt crystals drying on the outside after a session? Dry kite rolled up, then maybe a few weeks later, bounces around a car for a while, why are my bladders not all failing? Wasaga so fresh water ? No problems then it will evaporate next time you are pumped up if it's a dry da...

Re: Different Bar Widths - Explained

The article starts with 'slowness' measured in time, I would assume? It then goes on to measurements and angles, then on to 'feel'. At no point does it make reference to time (time taken to turn kite) slowness. Does a narrow bar make your kite slower? The biggest misconception is that a narrow bar a...

Re: Fun little video

I turned up a couple of times and the wind didn't! I always felt I was maybe a bit heavy for PB (I need time to get a long run up for a jump! Ha!) It also felt like a slog into town from Foxboro too. Recognize some faces and I know Mike from sessions at the Cape. I'm back to Dux for a week in Oct, c...
