Re: FL Keys kiting by boat - FL Bay or Lower Keys

  I have lived in Islamorada and been kiting here for 16 yrs. There are only 2 sandbars on the bay side with flats that are useable and only on a N or NW wind. The first is Cotton Key but if it's windy out of those wind directions, the local shop will have 4-5 lessons and a few riders there and ther...

Re: A little motor on the foil-board for swimming in/out

Not sure if it could be used with the motor off.

Re: Not sure why this is happening. Anyone?

It's called black stitching on white material. You can see it on the otherside as well. Looks funny in the pic but totally fine when you look at it differently. You can see from the other pics that there is no repair.

Max - Not surewhat that would do as it is already stiff.

No center strut repairs and everything looks good. The 2 side struts are straight. Not sure if it changes its flite characteristics. It's a stumper I guess.

Not sure why this is happening. Anyone?

So, I have been repairing kites for 15 year and this is a first for me. I fixed a bladder for a customer and when I was removing the center strut on a 2014 Airush Lithium, I noticed a weird curvature to it. I thought it was the bladder but when it is inflated outside the kite, the bladder is straigh...

Re: Cabrinha Chaos 2016

Saw and talked to a guy with one yesterday. Totally different. It is a 6 line design like the Hadlow was with square wing tips. 5 struts. Looks like a C kite. The bar has a new trim cleat which looks great. After talking to him about the kite he said he loved it for freestyle but it kept stalling th...

Clear kiteboard?

I remember a few months back that a company, in Europe, was making clear kiteboards possibly out of Lexan. Can't find it in a search. Anyone remember the name or website?

Re: Core - I'm giving it to you straight

If your gonna open the door, I'm gonna walk in. SupaEZ, Let's take your example. But the pic shows someone pulling the door open but we don't use pull releases and most people open doors while not in an emergency. Let's use the push of the door to open instead. 2 doors. Stay with me! 1 door is a twi...

Re: New guy kite flying is not easy

1st day by yourself can be frustrating. It sounds like there wasn't much wind as the 3m should fly without a problem in 8-10 knots. As said before, the rats nest will happen again. Relax and start with one line at a time. The rainbow colored kite looks like a T Foil. Don't use it. Not so good. The H...
