Re: How to remove rust stains from kite?

Phosphoric acid! No damage to canopy and works a treat. You can use the stain devil for removing rust from clothing which is comercially available or get a weak solution of a phosphoric acid from a drug store. It has absolutely no damaging effect on the kite. The plus part is that you do not have to...

Re: heading to Tarifa

Bring your 4/3-5/4! it is the Atlantic big time. If you are in the water it is cold, regardless of air temp! The 3/2 is not enough insulation for this time of the year. Have a great trip, dont be tempted to kite with Levante(easterlies) near Tarifa, go to Valdevaqueros or further afield! WjM.........

Re: This can be deadly....

Hello to all, great shot but obviously potentially deadly. When and where was it? I presume it is a course race.
Ciao..

Re: Can someone review the Cabrinha Crossbow 18m for me plea

WjM, Seriously dude? I own the 2013 18m xbow and have 3 sessions on it already! Just about everything you blasted about the Xbow is total BS! First off, the new 5 strut design along with all the other refinements have increased the turning speed imensely! The kite is much lighter now and has many s...

Re: Using an air pig as vacuum reservoir

Hola, I don’t think there will be any risk of implosion with the compressor reservoir. An air pig is used as an air manifold which is usually a cylindrical or donut shaped reservoir with multiple air connectors making it look like a sow (female pig). The multiple connectors resemble nipples and thus...

Re: Can someone review the Cabrinha Crossbow 18m for me plea

I have the 17m edge and a friend just bought the 18m cross bow. I would give it a 6/10 compared with the edge. It is a really slow turner unless you reach up and grab another meter of line to speed up the kiteloop. The kite I tried the owner put a pully system in to help depower the beast. He was un...

Re: Say NO to Olympics without windsurfing...

You are trying to hold back the tide..... I totally agree regarding the "why" windsurfers have been pitched against kiters this is an error. I also have experienced the windsurfers bully boy tactics in traditional wind surfing spots. I think it is jealousy, I am a race board enthuiast and when its b...

Re: Quick release harness it time

I have a similiar seat harness with the same release system but I dont think I would release the clasp in an emergency it would be fine on a waist harness but with the leg straps, potentially fatal on the seat harness! I can only imagine it getting dragged and not being able to get the harness off a...
