Re: Cabrinha Contra 2016 in 15M review ?

Love my 2016 Contra 15. It is a good kite for 14-18kn for me. It is such a smooth kite too. Handles really well. I also have a 17 and it is also a great light wind kite. Contra and Switchblades...My quiver.

Re: Leading Edge Bladder tips blowing out

I had a couple of similar issues. I deducted that it was either the way I inflated the kite or packed it away. When inflating make sure that the bladders fill without creases or folds. Roll the kite right out and slowly fill. When packing away make sure the air is removed from the bladders when roll...

Yes mine is ok when dry but as soon as salt water gets on the depower line the black is evident.

Re: Black Marks Off Cabrinha Depower Line?

I am really perplexed about this Depower line black grime issue. I have had 2012 Cabrinha bars leach this black stuff on my hands, then my 2014 and my 2015 bars did the same. I upgraded to 2017 bars and all was good for nearly a year now and now I have my 2017 52 bar leaching this black grime. I hav...

Re: Cabrinha Ace vs Spectrum

I have used the 144 and 148 Spectrums. I like the 148 as a lighter wind option. It rides well and smooth and nice easy landings. Personally I would like a few channels in the base for grip/turns but still like very much.

Re: Wind Predictions for Kiting in Maui and Best location

Wow, how lucky are you both. Great location and weather. I have kited a number of times at kite beach next to the airport. After 11am and wind is great for a 6-8m, nice bunch of locals. Facilities poor, portable toilets, small dirt car park but great kiting. Call in at Adventure Spots, great range a...

Re: How long last your line cutting tool?

Yes agree...mine gets encrusted in salt and a ceramic blade is a good suggestion.
