Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

Because the "wake stylers" just slam kites on other riders head. The proper wake boarding does not do that. Kite 'wake' boarding does. Only if they could doing it with a style ;) Hardly stylish.

Re: DIY onestrut kite

The best is to use a CNC with cutter. That speeds everything up.

Any sailmaker worth his salt can do it to, but for sure there is a cost.

But that is not the main concern for me, the main is following a how'to: http://www.zeroprestige.org/sewakite.pdf

Pan Tau site is on German, good read as well.

Re: glass fiber or carbon?

Re: DIY onestrut kite

^ Yes they are simple. The production ones are made way more complicated, they are complicating things for marketing. Ok maybe a bit for durability as well, colors sell well :) My good friend with 40 years sewing experience (retired now), did this when I showed a kite: - she took the kite and folded...

Re: DIY onestrut kite

Congrats,

great work. Do you have a kite plan available? I think this might help with my project of converting an 2006 XBow to one/none strut kite. Should be easy, but, the angles are difficult to match with no plans.

Re: How to make a kite

^ Yep, Aussie is for Australian. We love to shorten the words you know. How is your geography? ;) You're more than welcome to try to shout Turks is Greece (and vice versa). Try it, might be fun. I'm surprised by your ignorance to accept wrongdoings tho, it's takes a courage and manhood to accept it ...
