Re: Core and German engineering meme

I skimmed through this thread and the other Core thread this morning. As it affects my purchasing decisions, I have two main takeaways: 1. The sample size of complaints about Core products is too small for me to conclude that they are generally poorly made, but it’s absurd for a kite manufacturer t...

Re: kite friendly airline

Between American and United to Mexico, which is more accommodating for for a "golf bag"? Thanks If in the US or Baja always fly Alaska if possible. By far the most kiter friendly airline & generally friendly-er overall. No need to lie about whats in the bag. I guess Virgin Airlines is very similar

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

I tried to read a bit of this thread, but the USA element of climate change deniers, God Botherers and other weak minded morons left me with the feeling we're fucked whichever way you look at it. I've been around a while, managed to survive, despite the nuclear tests in the fifties and sixties but ...

Re: What a wind Forcast - Hurricane Florence

Fortunately for the US we have spectacular access to information & communication. I think that's a huge difference maker in the human loss factor. I hope everyone in NC, SC, & S. VA are scampering out like they should be. The most devastating hurricane that's ever hit NC was Hazel, 1956. Only Cat4 ....

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Every single kite brand has their issues. When I first started kiting, I expected brand support but quickly found that it was minimal especially for consumables like bars and lines. Thats when my focus changed from complaining about it to doing something. None of the gear I use today is standard ma...

Re: Switch Lineup

Inflated kite today at home. Isolated leak to a strut valve area with soapy water. It's not a small leak and the strut lost pressure quickly. Emailing Switchkites was not easy as the website link to email didn't function. Found an email address under the warranty tab. Will see what they respond wit...

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Sure seems like Core & Flysurfer have some serious customer service issues. Thank goodness there are brands that are solid in customer service, don't gouge customers on pricing, & perform great for my needs. Pay more for attitude? - Not me

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

I have conducted some enquiries, obviously can't help about internal USA carriage issues, but I have been onto the guy at Core who is at the sharp end of any warranty issues and he too confirmed there are no issues with bridle failures, however he did point out that at times in the haste to get lau...
