Re: North bag zips complete sh*t!

Cheaper kite with a BoardRidingMaui/Flysurfer Peak style simple draw string stuff sack with ventilated cloth. Let people buy the luggage they want. And definitely do not degrade a products images with cheap bags that falls apart. Its bad for the brand image and not just North sell kite bags with zip...

Re: FS Speed 6

I would rather see Psycho5 in the line of development of the 3 bridle gallery Speed4 DLX.

Hyperlink compares more to Psycho then Pulse and is a very sweet kite by the way.

Re: washing the kite after use make the difference?

For an ultralight kite in light wind conditions it can make a difference to wash the salt off if a humid environment. The salt will pull water out of the air and sand will stick. Especially true for a foil kite. Maybe every 5 -10 sessions I will rinse and dry because sand is starting to stick or the...

Re: What are your Worst Accidents Hydrofoiling?

I'm a complete beginner again with a foil on a skim board type board. Today the foil went through my lines, resulting in a looping kite with the foil pulling me down underwater. After the second loop I ejected the kite. The foil cut my safety line, completely freeing the kite and foil. The kite drop...

Re: Hindenburg

I doesn't have to be strutless. But do consider a lower aspect kite that does not go so close to the edge of the window. A super high aspect kite can find itself out of the window with just a change in direction. Also a lighter kite will drift better and less likely to fall. Would also consider one ...

Re: Supplements/food to prevent knee/hip arthritis and keep joints lubricated?

Positive reports from Ketogenic and Vegan diets, almost polar opposites that have 2 thing in common: 1) You will drop 10 pounds (probably the most important thing) 2) You will hunger for a hamburger with both the meat and bun so bad your knees and back won't seem so important. I have also noticed gr...

Re: Need help identifying thrift store Quadrifoil

Kite probably older than Kiteforum. Doubt it's worth the hassle unless you have a masochistic interest in tuning bridles of old kites. Traction kites have come a long way.

Re: Stem Cell therapy works

http://time.com/4703909/stem-cell-treatment-lose-vision/ I love to hear a success story and I do really believe stem cell and regenerative medicine hold a lot of promise. However I would compare stem cell today to early aviation in the 1920s. There were winners but casualties as well. Hopefully the ...
