Stingray stings

stingrays Just wanted to give a warning to my fellow kiters. My local spot is know to have stingray in the shallows and everyone know to shuffle their feet when getting in the water. When coming back to shore and getting out of the water it's not always easy to let those stingrays know your coming....

Re: Kite build project

Wow!! VVS, that looks really nice!!!. Have you had a chance to fly it yet? What program did you use for your design? Surfplan? I've got a couple of old C kites I was thinking of using, but a hate printing out all of the plans on 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper and having to tape them together. Any tips?

Re: New Axis Foilboard

Gunnar, I've really enjoyed your all your videos, thanks for posting. I like the idea of the track system. You said they are using US boxes. Are these mast track windsurfing boxes or longboard surfboard fin boxes? How are you installing the boxes, same as a tuttle box? What size bolt and plate are u...

Re: Strutless Kite Build

Very cool!! Nice to see you flying it. I did a strut less kite build myself, but haven't dialed in the bridles yet. Mine is a 10m. The one in the pic is actually 17m, but I rebuild after design change and made it a 10m. Any tips or bridle measurements you have found to work well.
Thanks

Re: kid-sized board - NorCal

If your looking for a directional board you could always find a small used surfboard at a surfshop and put footstraps on it. It probably doesn't need to be super strong like other kite specific boards, as your son probably doesn't weigh enough to really stress the board.

Re: Kite build project

Hello Crisis, I'm not sure my plan would be the best to work off of. While the kites did fly, they weren't with our issues. Twisted wing tips, fluttering trailing edge, not to mention trying to figure out the bridle. I thought that it might be because of my sewing or the hundreds of pages I had to p...
