Re: Inexpensive Snowkite Suggestions

Hi guys. Thanks for all your thoughts! My partner and I fly both foils and tube kites in snow however since our wind is usually clean on the frozen bays around Lake Ontario we fly mostly foils in winter. Sometimes we do venture inland and have found that tube kites manage the gusty conditions very w...

Inexpensive Snowkite Suggestions

Hello Snowkiters. With winter just around the corner I am looking to expand my snowkite quiver. Currently I own 7 and 12 meter Pansch Blaze 2 kites and a 7.5 HQ Apex. All these kites perform adequately but my partner is now also riding so we need some more kites so that we can both ride together. I ...

Re: Foilboard vs Crate

I couldn't agree more. We all need to do our part. I pick stuff up every time I go to the beach and get those same quizical looks from other people, including other kiters. I do it for two reasons - because its part of my job, and more importantly, because it's the right thing to do! If more of us p...

Pulling Sleds While Kiteskiing

Hi Folks I am interested in trying some expedition-style kiteskiing. To get my feet wet i'd like to do some longer day-rides on local lakes where I can have access to roads while pulling a sled loaded with gear. I have a five foot long ice-fishing sled that might be suitable for this first attempt. ...

Re: DIY vacuum pump

Hi guys I noticed the vacume pump Bigdog posted on this thread (the one on ebay). I've been experimenting with an old fridge vacume but have no way to regulate pressure and am drawing to almost one full atmosphere (about 26 psi on a car vacume guage). My laminates are coming out dry-looking and the ...

Ready to glass - suggestions please.

Hello fellow builders I am getting ready to glass my first board and am looking for hints and suggestions! I'm a little intimidated about the vacume bagging process so I plan to do it in two stages - glass the bottom first, leave it on the mold and then laminate the top layer. Does this make sense? ...

First Board Questions - Cedar core.

Hi folks I've just glued up a 8 mm core of cedar to build a door style board. I plan to build a 160 X 45 cm board. I'm looking for advice on the following : 1) is this core thick enough or should I build a second "deck" core? 2) if the 8 mm core is thick enough how much glass should I use? 3) if I g...

Re: Urethane rails

I may have missed the answer to this question somewhere on this forum but does anyone know where precast rails can be found in North America? Any idea of the cost?

Thanks.

What gear makes sense to travel with

Hi folks My partner and I are travelling to Panama in February and are wondering what type of gear makes the most sense to bring along and what gear (if any) we should rent. We have never traveled by air with kiting gear and are worried about extra baggage charges and possible damage to the gear - e...
