Re: Which Bar for Bandit 7

The new Fone bars don't suffer from corrosion.
But, the 9m needs a smaller bar than the 11m so either you get two bars or buy another brands bar that has the option to change lengths.

Re: Kite pumps- where's the technological advances??

Well the fact is pumping up a kite with a manual pump makes my back hurt. I tried different pumping "styles" but always end up with a sore back. Only thing that helps is my electric pump, that fails once in a while, so i would like a manual foot-pump backup. Kitesurfing doesn't make my back hurt at ...

Re: Carbon Fibre in boards??

I never owned a Flysurfer and as someone who has a little knowledge of aerodynamics and manufacturing processes It really interests me to see the new kite models of...

Re: Kite pumps- where's the technological advances??

What I want is a foot pump.
Why should we hurt our backs and knees while pumping up a kite. This is what kite boarding is for.
