Re: New board advice? CF Raptor LTD?

Hi I'm a big fan of the Raptor LTD Looks like they have changed the shape this year 2018, I've seen some good deals on 2017 ones. Not read any individual reviews of the 2018, but the mags seem to like (now there's a surprise!). The pre 2018's can be difficult to spot in the surf, being so dark, Defi...

Re: Cape Town - Drought

I had a dose of the worse shitz ever in CPT in jan 2012
The local doctor said it could have been due to the water as bad stomach outbreaks occur when reservoir levels get very low.

No problems previous times though.

Re: Leaking Boston Valve

I was responding to the original poster. I read it before his declaration of no actual washer in place! I didn’t read your posts cos your emojis do my head in! I had problem on brand new kite FYI. Have had the same issue. Friction with rubber seal kicks in before it becomes air tight. A bit of spit ...

Re: Leaking Boston Valve

Have had the same issue.
Friction with rubber seal kicks in before it becomes air tight.
A bit of spit on both sides of the washer will usually does it, a longer term solution is something like a dab of molycote on both sides of the washer, careful though this will attract sand.

Re: Leash carabiner opening after unhook trick?

You could try swapping the carabiner for one with a screw locking gate. These can be safer as a line cannot accidentally clip in either. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=carabiner+with+screw+gate&prmd=isvn&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&fir=egXwKu6WefMcSM%253A%252C4lQDWiuiO-vwRM%252C_%253BrJt4ayEdedONP...

Re: New Takoon SynapS Bar with unique quick release

That was a good spot! - The animators need to get it right. Good to see red and blue clear on the bar. LOLOLOLOL so much marketing garbage. Why not just say "all the modern features that better bars have had for almost a decade." Also that figure 8 leash attachment is shown misused two times in the ...

Re: WMFG Big Pump - does it work with 2016- North kites and Core kites?

I've 2 of them and current one is a lot better with the flexible hose. I don't have North or core but their site says 'all kites' and the nozzles are very comprehensive; I'd be interested to also hear if anyone can confirm their fitment. https://wmfg.co/products/wmfg-kite-pump-nozzle-and-parts-pack ...

Re: Hell hath no furry like those without Core kites.

Does this now mean you are bowing out of the forum ChickenD? We will miss you, anyway if so, goodbye, oh and can you take DWX with you! The only dislike I can see is for the core pimps, (and the folks that spout utter gibberish - you know who you are!) not Core products. Ask that unauthentic Captain...
