Good news - any fin will work !!

Just go to your local shop or even ask around at your kitespot.
🙌🏼 Snagged a cabrinha 50mm set locally. The Shinn bites are kinda of a pain to locate easily. Padre folks have them but only in sets of 4, for $80. All good now.

Shinn bite fins, where to buy?

Lost one of the fins on my shinnster the other day. Can’t seem to locate a replacement easily in US. Anyone have any laying around or a vendor? Thanks!

Re: Diable line of Elf Joker7

Thanks for the info. I purchased a used J7 15m last year that was tuned very well, not that I would be able to tell the difference, but I haven’t had any issues you’ve described. But I’m not in the foiling game, just use it to rip around on a TT in lighter breeze. Is there a good diagram/tuning char...

Re: 8m2 of Elf Joker7 tuning and tips

What are the issues that the J7's develop overtime? What to look for down the line? I have a 15m, third hand. Was well tuned from the last owner, great.

Re: DIY Foil Kites

Very smart solution! From watching the "how to make a kite" video in the dumpster fire of a thread on the main page, the production bridals are stitched by hand feeding the machine, but like you said, proper machines and the kite makers run thousands of bridals.

Re: It's about my nipples....

Yea there's a couple of ways to add pressure. I used an electrical tape roll, just the right diameter and stacked some weight on top. Tip. If the valve has to be oriented in a certain direction, as in, if it is attached to the fabric flap as on the Best kites, before you peel it off, mark on the bla...
