Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

More importantly, how do you totally detach yourself from the kite. Looks like you are tied to the flag line after QR by the pigtails?

Re: Core Kite Skim?

Letsflyakite,

Re: Would normal surf FST Vanguard hold up in light wind use

I've had a couple of FST fire wires and as long as you don't jump them, it'll be fine.

I put a pad under my front foot to help, but you will get dents, no big problem.

You can also lay a square of 6oz glass on the deck too.
