Re: Deal on Airush ultra vs. Naish Boxer

I will go to the Boxer since my daughter has renewed interest in the sport :-) a bit less coin in it and durable construction is nice. She is afraid taking my strutless kites more than 200 of the beach... ;-)

Thanks all for the input..

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

I was thinking about this. purely emperical. Lets say the kite has 60kg pulling force in normal riding with some speed. during a jump it has more pull, say 120kg pull- I know , I know this is all wrong, but dont know any physics. so lets say im loaded to do a jump, 120kg on center lines. CL acciden...

Why not test it and see if it can handle the force you assume it will face?

Easy enough to support it at the tips and hang weights from the centre.

I know some very nice, gentlemen like Russians.

Re: Advice from an older married kiter to a young one

I instructed my daughters myself and kept them safe. Always distance... My girlfriend took lessons resulting in tangled kites and injury to the hand due to snapped leash. IMHO the commercial interests of the kiteschool jeopardized safety. Too crowded spot... most kiteschools did like hers... don't s...

Re: Bar questions Cabrinha and Ozone

Good idea indeed. Borrowed from Evan. But he will certainly not have been the first/only one that came up with this idea....

Re: Bar questions Cabrinha and Ozone

Yeah that makes more sense. Can you still feed the brummel splice ok with a knot in the loop or does that part not need to go through the line anyway? Also, what diametre dyneema rope is best? Q1: Yes you could. And no it doesn't need to go through if you do the side with the knot first. Q2: I use ...

Ive a friend with a FRS 12m, and my R1V2 11m on 15m lines starts earlier and has more power then the FRS 12m on 21m lines. The FRS its a easy kite, but it doesnt excel anywhere.
Doesn't it excel in ease of use?

Re: Deal on Airush ultra vs. Naish Boxer

Thanks for all the (sometimes elaborate) but al useful replies and considerations. Keep it coming.. The increased durability due to load frame speaks in favour of the Ultra. With respect to absolute low end I also believe ultra would be the better choice. In my case two daughters would use these kit...

Re: Bar questions Cabrinha and Ozone

Do yourself a favour and buy or make a splicing needle and some dyneema.. I make adjustable pigtails myself. This could easily be used to compensate for a 15 cm line difference. I can shift the knot to change line length relative to each other see foto. The loops are spliced without stitching. IMG_2...
