Re: Tacking! More Power Scotty!!

There are a couple of things you might give a try related to equipment. One is try flying a little bigger kite than you normally would and just fly it de-powered such that you have a little more power on hand when coming out of the tack. Shorter flying lines may help the kite move across the window ...

Re: How old is your oldest kite you still ride on?

2011 16m and 18m North Dynos. Still both very good AirStyle machines that get used frequently. I have had to reinforce a few stitches here and there on the struts, but overall a very well built kites with a great bar that has a microloop!

Re: Line length advice needed for 15m R1V1 on foilboard

Gents, thanks for the good advice, I ended up trying 18m lines and noticed very little difference from the 20m lines. I then dropped down to 15m lines and that seemed to make a noticeable difference and gave the desired results of moving the kite across to the other side quicker during foiling tacks...

Line length advice needed for 15m R1V1 on foilboard

I have been riding a 'new to me' Ozone 15m R1V1 for a couple of weeks on 20m lines. I am looking to get a little quicker kite response coming out of foiling tacks. I would like to get some shorter lines, and am looking for some advice on what works best on this kite based on the experience of others...

Re: Deep Tuttle box, where to buy in US?

Cosmo is correct, unfortunately I got the info after I ordered up a Chinook 305. The Chinook 305 came in today and it does NOT fit the 'Deep Tuttle' profile on top of the Taaroa Sword 2. It bottoms out in the top of the box cavity with somewhere between 3/8" and 1/4" of the taper profile still stick...

Re: Yet another issue with North leading edge stitching..

Same place on my 2010 12m Rebel a couple years ago and just recently on my 2012 12m Rebel. Since it is double stitched, it seems more of a cosmetic issue than a structural one. Although, the bulge it creates looks kind of scary, sort of a like leading edge aneurysm. If you have some basic hand sewin...

Re: Deep Tuttle box, where to buy in US?

The foil I need the box for is a Taaroa Sword 2 with Deep Tuttle
I was just aware of Deep and Standard Tuttle boxes which differ by the depth of the box. I haven't heard of 'European' and 'Race' versions of the box. What are the differences with the European and Race Boxes?

Re: Ever had a Trim Strap Snap?

Airrush plastic buckle on trim strap snapped after a 8 uses. To top it off, the red and blue plastic covering on the trim pull lines is splitting and falling off along with the rubber locking tube showing signs of cracks. :(
