Cracked North Gambler 2015, anyone has similar experience?

This is what happened to my mint gambler on the kite trip in Sicily. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BwgV62r_TFMNbUtKQmNnTEdqdmc&usp=sharing I'm currently waiting for word from the distributor, as I'm really not aware of any major crash that would cause this. It even happened on a light wind...

Re: North Vegas and Gambler 2015 size choice

I say go with the 13m and the 142 board. The slightly bigger board will help with the low end. I have the 142 and Dice 6, 8, 10. I can get out in 15 ave on the 10m and the 142 and am at 86kg. That 14.5 seems like a very big kite, but then again, I am not a fan of big kites. As an FYI, the Dice is m...

Re: North Vegas and Gambler 2015 size choice

What was your last quiver? it's all in there. ok, ok, let's put it in a real world numbers then and cross the 13 off. At 15knots I could easily start unhooking with 12 and NHP regular size board. I'm just not sure how much power loss should I expect from Vegas and Gambler which I know are both quit...

North Vegas and Gambler 2015 size choice

I'm gonna bite the bullet and do quiver refresh this year going for North brand items. Until now I was riding Nobile 50Fifty kites 12-9-7 with nobile NHP 134x42 board. I'm 80kg and it pretty much covered all my riding conditions from 13-14knots up. This year I'm thinking of picking up North gambler ...

Re: Slingshot rpm tuning

I've seen that happen on different kites, not only RPM (inverting). I guess it mainly has to do with underinflation. Just pump ip up a bit more.

RPM 10 always behaved nicely for me, backstalling only happens if flown in too little wind. But I'd say, just try the middle knot :P

Re: Big issue w/ Mystic clicker 3.0 spreader bar!

I see you did not fasten the lower strap. That should make a helluva difference. What do you mean? More specific, please, because as far as I know all the straps were fastened :( take a look at the picture, it runs through the loop under the hook, I believe all mystic harnesses are equipped with it...

Anyone uses Double Depower option on Rabbit 2.0 bar?

Last time on water I was forced to use my slightly forgotten WH smoke, working mainly on raley to blind (so far without success) and other simplest UH stuff. That means I was crashing a lot and one thing really annoyed me: I was riding on suicide setup and the kite really had some decent pull when s...

Re: Difficulty undoing depowered Slingshot

shouldb be no different than depowering it.
Check if you're not pulling the depower in too much - all they way, so that the stopper ball hits the sviwel. This usually causes, that it's almost impossible to loosen the rope from the cleat afterwards.

Re: do you think your location is packed with kiters? rethin

haha, would be an interesting game of "connect the dots" where you gotta link each kiter with his/hers kite :)
