Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

I'd say the best thing is starting with a kite that drifts well as-is. I find you end up fighting a bad drifting kite in the waves, but a kite that drifts well mostly stays out of your way and lets you focus more on the wave. If you have a good drifting kite already though, I'll let others comment o...

Re: 5 ways to self land - Tutorial

Not everyone at the beach is a kiter. I'd prefer to self land than have a non-kiter attempt to grab my kite incorrectly (which is often the case) causing more issues.

Re: Core kite with different bar?

Make sure to practice in lower wind or with a spotter the first couple of times you try it just to make sure you have a feel for it.

Re: Core kite with different bar?

It is super easy to self land using the core bar. Walk up the center line to the V and yank the top line to land the kite. Seems less convenient to screw around with a non-core bar with your core kite.

You'll float yes, but the swim will be inefficient.

Re: How if fix damaged carbon wings

The glazing compound or filler putty will leave the surface looking blotchy I'd assume since they don't dry clear. Since it's a small area, I wouldn't need a lot of epoxy. What type of epoxy would work well? I've never used epoxy before. Sanding off the entire surface to apply a new clear coat seems...

Re: How if fix damaged carbon wings

Flipping heck! And I thought my wing was scratched, that's mega scratched, but unlike mine, yours is mostly on the top wing surface, where mine are damaged on the front edge and bottom surface. That's the bottom of the wing; it's a 2017 lift wing. It's from grazing over coral reef before I knew the...
