Re: DIY bar strength?

My only experience with a bar breaking was very chaotic. The bar broke at one end during boosting, so one steering line went slack while the other stayed attached to the bar. Result was the dreaded death loop until I could gather my senses and hit the quick release. I'd like to avoid that experience...

What's the best thing about kite surfing?

That other thread was bringin' me down. So......best thing?

1 - A warm sunny day when you finally land the trick you've been struggling to land for oh so long.

2 - A brand new kite....that's just perfect.

3 - Riding perfectly powered.

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

Good2go, my answer to your question is "not very often". By that I mean that the wind needs to be really light for you, as a beginner, to send a 6m kite deep into the power zone on land without getting hurt. On most days with moderate wind, the 6m would be too powerful (even at your size) for you to...

Re: For Toby - Any word on that prototype microloop/hook

I think he'd have to drill an F-one bar to insert the North micro-loop. I drilled my LF bar to take a North micro-loop. It was pretty simple. You need need to use a slightly larger drill bit for the holes on top of the bar and a smaller bit for holes on the bottom. Also, angle the micro-loop slightl...

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

Good advice from jakemoore. I had a lot of fun on a buggy and mountainboard with a 2-line 3 meter foil kite when I was learning. I lived inland and couldn't always get to water, but open fields were plentiful. You can learn a lot about kite control and the wind window playing around with a small kit...

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

Hey, you Dallas kiters......does anyone ever kite on White Rock Lake? Probably crappy wind, but seems like a fairly large body of water. Just curious.

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

Hey, good2go. Congrats on taking the plunge with your first lessons. Glad you're still committed. You won't regret it. It's a great sport. A 4-line sheetable trainer is a great idea, but you'll find they are expensive (more than you'd want to spend on a trainer). For example, the Ozone Uno is a nice...

Re: kite surfing equipment for sale

To know what you've got, you'd want to list the sizes and models for kites, boards and harness. Looks like you have at least a Cabrinha Switchblade (size?) and a Cabrinha Crossbow (size?), and an older model North board. Not sure about the one in the board bag. The kite sizes would be something like...
