Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

I buy all new kite gear every two years and put about 50-75 sessions on each kite before selling. The money I spent on my new Naish Dashes was totally worth it. I feel a greater sense of confidence boosting 50 feet on newer gear compared to old gear that could have a bridle snap from up high or duri...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Can we end this discussion already? I couldn’t care less about the brand name of a sporting goods company, as long as thier products are high performing and of high quality I’ll buy them. I own plenty of mountain bikes, surf boards, snowboards, etc etc with silly brand names. I’ve loved my Vegas and...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Duotone is an awful name. Ughh. True would’ve been much better. I guess I’ll be foiling on Duo Monos now

Re: Are there foot hooks that don't %*-"@! break?

Yeah. Mine used to break all the time. I then started wrapping them tightly in black duct tape before installation with and haven't had an issue since.

Re: Leash wrapped around harness hook

I connect my leash to the front using a custom 30cm leash extender made of an old Naish sheeter rope. The length of the rope that could get wrapped around the hook is covered in layers and layers of duct tape which stiffens it and makes it impossible to wrap around the harness hook.
