Re: Fastest way how to set up your kite

Both work. I find just winding works better for me. Cleaner, seems to be less line twists and the lines spool off the bar when I'm setting up. I used to try to speed rig before, it's just not worth making a mistake in the sake of gaining an extra 90 seconds on the water. Something to consider if you...

Re: Fastest way how to set up your kite

Yeah this might be necessary for some small, remote (boat) or difficult launches but walking the lines out once and connecting to the kite might add all of 1 minute to the process?

Patience grasshopper.

Re: Problem with Ratchet Straps Tightening

KiterDon, Yeah that was an issue I had with very thick 7mm booties and size 11 feet. (US). This was a problem riding in the spring when the water was nearly freezing.

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Yeah on any kites that run Boston valves you have to be pretty cautious with sand getting in that O ring. Pumping my 14m Pivot a couple weeks ago I could feel the kite way softer when I was ready to launch. I went back and checked the valve and the O ring was actually unseated and a some sand was in...

Re: Velcro or Ratchet - What would you prefer on a Spleene Kiteboard?

Yeah I think it's a bit subjective. If I lived in the Caribbean and rode barefoot all the time I wouldn't care if I had velcro. The reality of where I kite is that the water is now 42f degrees and booties are required. The ratchet systems from SP, Shinn (same), Nobile (same) and Carved work great. I...
