Re: Extreme Kitesurf Accidents

Ouch!! Things do go wrong sometimes and this is shows what happens and can be a lesson to others to be aware of the dangers that can occur! Good to see you put one of yourself in shows this can happen to anyone even highly experienced kiters.

Re: home made piss-off shampoo

I usually use mild hand wash detergent with a small amount of Milton( baby bottle sterilising fluid) that’s what it’s called in the UK. Soak it in a bucket for 20 mins then hang out to dry. Gets rid of odours from the wetsuit.

Re: How far do you drive to kite?

Damn I though I had a decent way to go but some of you guys even further, 1 hour and 45 mins to a tidal estuary beach and 3 hours to my favourite but it’s worth it!

Re: Replacement swivel for 4line flag out

Thanks guys lots of food for thought - much appreciated! Sliick, by attaching the flag out line to the ring that rotates, does that not mean you don't have a safety release on the flag out line (which you do if you attach to a suicide leash?)

Don't suppose you have a pic of how this works? Sounds like the best way to go for me. I’m the same as Sarc always replace mine with a ring there’s no friction on release, I self land 99% of the time and the kite drops straight down on the leading edge( except the odd time when it rolls over a few ...

Re: Replacement swivel for 4line flag out
