Re: Epirb? flares? 2 way radio set to maritime channel, cell ph in a waterproof case?

I use to use a spot tracker years ago on my motorcycle (and later a Delorme tracker sailing that does two way satellite text messages) but I think a semi waterproof phone inside a waterproof pouch is far more useful to coordinate with people that might be able to react (at least in most kitesurfing ...

Re: Switch Lineup

I'm not a kite designer so I don't know exactly how flattening it out would affect turning amongst all the variables they've changed, but I think you get a more efficient kite for a given weight and potentially more power with less wasted fabric. BRM Clouds are flatter than most kites and they turn...

Re: Switch Lineup

Yes, I think the new 7m-12m Helium 3 is essentially a refined and lightened evolution of the Element 5. Both have a similar aspect ratio but the helium is flatter giving a higher projected area per size which I think is a good thing for foil/wave.

Re: Who has Crazyfly kite? Are they durable ? How is the quality?

Are CF the only medium/large kite company that makes their kites outside asia? It's interesting that they can keep their costs down producing in europe.

Re: Ozone Chicken loop Megatron smaller

This is the video i used by a friend. It's not too difficult but it takes a bit of patience to get things lined up right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn70o6Yk2xI The main thing that was challenging to wrap my head around was to push the half completed knot through the splice since you don't have...

Re: Ozone Chicken loop Megatron smaller

Well, that wasn't really helpful ;( How on Earth would your swivel go through this? Also, did you just cut the Ozone tube and put the knot or what? A picture is worth a thousand words. :lol: All I started with was a picture of someone else doing it. I don't understand your question about the swivel...

Re: New Switch Kites Helium3 only days away :-)

Looks good. Last May/June I was asking Felix to update the Element 5 to be lighter and it looks like thats where they evolved the Helium into.
