Re: If you can get rid of any style of kiteboarding, what style would you possibly get rid of and why?

for sure there are problems in the kite community and it mainly has to deal with self enforcement. So for instance, there might be a beach where the kiters are buzzing the beach goers and generally scaring the tourists. The local kite crew, instructors and those who have been there a while give a t...

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Are you talking about the 2015 or 2016 GP bar cause I think the quick release on the 2015 has a large enough hole for the flag line and knot to pass through bit the iron heart quick release the hole is too small. All 2016/2017 material.. the north ironhart version... Note you need a knot or somethi...

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Hi Perrt Are you saying that the flag out line with front line attached will not pass through the quick release and therefore only flags 3m? If so then it will not depower correctly. I was under the impression that if I attached the flag out line to a front line and removed the fifth line then it w...

Re: Multiple kites or multiple bars

Find barely used second hand kites.

Re: Gaastra X4 Barsystem

I would buy the North bar. I rode Gaastra for 3-4 years. The older Gaastra bars plowed through depower rope like crazy and I also broke the safety line after some years. Nothing wrong with the bars other than that, but with other brands I have had later the lines never wore out or broke. The North ...

Re: Hi Toby, your site sucks at UX

Toby, I want you to keep the site the same. +1 As with my supermarket floorplan I dislike it when my favourite websites make changes that cause me to look longer for what I need. I have thick fingers and a large android. Still no desire for less text. That would provoke more scrolling touches.. I g...
