Re: broken line causes kite damage

one thing to consider is quality pulley so far never broke a line only pulley. sheavless pulley looks pretty neat, I wish there was option to upgrade pulley when you get a kite. I don't know if sheavless wear down bridle faster or not but at least no risk of sand getting stuck in pulley and breaking...

When you hit the quick release it puts all tension in 1 line and gear doesn't braek. Maybe some design with thin leading edge and spider bridle could have...

Re: Video: Grabs every kiteboarder needs to know: Part One

looks like snowboard grabs are next level lol with bloody dracula, dracula method or canadian bacon grabs :lol:
