Re: Unhooking leash options

Try Switch leash. I used to break somehting like 2-4 leash/season, but this has hold up already one year. Release system is also quite rigid, so you won't release by mistake when passing (which has been problem with some other leashes). Also the price is reasonable. Good price for the leash - unfor...

Re: Unhooking leash options

I have the same problems. I've been using Cab leash's - but after about 6 months of regular crashing, they are so long they nearly drag in the water, with very little actual stretch left in them - and I also have a big issue with them releasing by accident - i've lost my kite about 6 times after dro...

Re: Cabrinha PU mainline depower tube

I dismantled mine as part of the line replacement programme. I don't do any maintenance, or washing, and treat my kit quite badly.... (sorry!).
There was no sign of any sand in it and the new line threaded through really easily.

Attaching a foil to an old twinny?

Basic nooby question.

I have an old twin tip that I'm considering bolting a foil to.

Is there any reason why this wouldn't work/ shouldn't be done? It's 138 x 41

I've never ridden a foil.

Thanks

Re: Calling cold water kiters! - Glove me.

These - in XL, so they are really baggy - put them on before your wetsuit, and pull your wetsuit on over them. If it gets REALLY cold, put some very thin glove liners under them.

Re: Leash carabiner opening after unhook trick?

I have never had the bar end of the leash become detached like that, but I have a similar issue (which is of no help to you whatsoever) whereby if I crash hardish, fairly often the leash emergency release attached to my harness fires off without me knowing it, and then when I unhook and drop the bar...

Re: Why do pros often leash direct to CL?

The design of the new North bars would prevent this from happening as the 8 ring is prevented from moving around the CL and getting close to the spreader hook. Hmmm, just checked that out, thats a great system. I like the look of the north bars for 2018. Sadly I will probably have to wait until 202...

Re: Why do pros often leash direct to CL?

You don't want to leash right on to the chicken loop. You need that figure 8 ring so you can clip on to one of the figure 8 loops and put the other figure 8 loop through the chicken loop. The reason you can't clip right on to the chicken loop is that when you are hooking and unhooking this setup wi...
