Re: Shinnster thoughts

Shinnster low end is pretty good, but not as low as a wide LW surfboard. The number one word I would use to describe the Shinnster is "smooth". The thing is amazingly smooth. It makes crappy riders look good. Is it a good board for strapless footwork? I'm not sure, it's not the most laterally stable...

Re: Ozone Edge for beginners

Sounds like you are in the San Diego area, steady 8-9 knots daily thermals with nice ground swell waves. I would stick with the big kite and Nugget, they will serve you well once you get past the learning stage. Learning in light wind is much harder though, but you make do with what you've got. Do n...

Ozone Alpha might be worth consideration too.

Re: Fireball with slider bar question

the clearance of the original piece is even smaller than the one I'm using. I'm not sure to what are you referring to...Further 316 inox I think it's strong enough. Would I recommend this set up for big air? NO. Would I recommend for waveriding? Absolutely yes. Honestly that Wichard swivel shackle ...

LF MaxFlow Valve Leaks After Tomahawk

I've run in to this problem 3 times now, where I screw up and tomahawk my kite in to the water then a few minutes later my kite starts jellyfishing and I need to come in and pump up. This has happened to me on 3 different LF Solo kites, a V1 and 2 V2's. At first I figured it was because I never real...

Ok, just an update and thanks for all your help. That bar was unbalanced by about 8 inches at least....fucked up.
Just so you know, 8" is 20 cm and that is pretty much 90% of the trim of a standard kitebar. So if it really was out by that much, that's scary.

Re: Fireball with slider bar question

You guys are seriously endangering yourselves with those setups! There is no where near enough space for the folded latch of the fireball QR to safely pass through those setups. Also stay away from your local hardware store, you need marine grade stainless. This is what I would recommend: https://ww...

Re: Kite for light wind - Recommendations

Get a 1 strut kite if you want a real LW kite.
