Re: refinishing a twintip

My TT has been hammered and is still in use after lots of work. The best paint is 2 part Polyurethane. Don't worry about finish on the lower surface, as that must be wet sanded with a foam sanding block anyway. The best finish is from 800 grit, after flattening with 220. Any other one component pain...

Re: Kite/Megaloop Ozone Edge

OK, to the OP. The Edge (and I can only talk about 9,10,11m) Loops like a demon, but you have to learn the kite. Every C style or low aspect kite will loop easier, with less technique, but the Edge will be up there in loopability I promise you. I can't claim to have done any megaloops, I mean, I go ...

Re: Sugar / epoxy deck grip

Thanks NorCalNomad. I will bow to your knowledge.
All the epoxies I have used, turn brown, but I guess I have not specified UV stable.
In any case, the method should work on Epoxy as well as it works on PU.
As a kid I favoured this method as it did not chew our wetsuits.

Re: Sugar / epoxy deck grip

I use Sugar quite often for non skid, but not in the way described above. You don't want to be walking on broken glass. The method is to use 2 part Polyurethane paint, because epoxy is not UV stable. Mask off the areas. Paint an even but thick coat in those areas. WAIT for the hardener to kick, ie n...

Re: Ozone Edge V9: Post Pictures & Information Here

Hi, Get the 11m not the 13 or 15. The lift:drag ratio is better the smaller you go. I know "Oldpeople" will disagree. My wife on her old 11 Edge on a 128cm board could have a good session in 14 knots, and on my 140cm a good one in 12 knots. Now I have been married to her for 32 years, and I don't kn...

Re: Ozone Edge V9: Post Pictures & Information Here

Hey Smartyy, have you tried rear lines at minus 5 setting? I found that to be the key. Or let me ask another way, is the bar closer to you than the old kite? I think they come from the factory with a "tame" setting at middle knot. I had a 2012 Edge, we called it Ju-ju-kite I could easily kite with t...

Re: How to carry a Two-way radio for Open water

What about a thick elastic web strap, loop and sew into a circle, then cross over to make Infinity sign.
Radio affixes to the X part, preferably with screws that hold a belt clip.
Put arms through the loops .

Re: Sharpie Marker removel on kite

I would leave it just as it is, any chemical you use is probably going to damage the fabric in the long term.
