Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

IMO Making a warranty claim for this damage would be thoroughly dishonest!!!' The above is from my post, can't be any plainer than that. Yes, you did a good job of highlighting the posts of those who said it was not a warranty claim. Those posters were not there at the time the kite blew up. They a...

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

You can not have read the previous posts in this thread otherwise you would not have made such a silly statement . I am assuming you are referring to my statement you put in bold " So don't buy Naish anymore if they deny the claim ." Would you continue to purchase Naish kites if you had problems wi...

Re: Advice on foot straps for injured knees ?

I used to use SP Boarding straps which have the nice ratchet system (they make straps for Shinn) but now use North NTT straps because as well as height setting they in addition also have multiple adjustable width settings .

Re: Eleveight RS: My Review

If you tell me I can buy a 10m that flies at 6 knots, my only (two-fold) question to you is, “so what is it made of and how fragile is the material?” We always talk about stability vs. agility but equally important is performance vs. durability. But I’m always open to having my mind blown on the wa...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

Over 20 knots self launch and self land can be sketchy. On self launch a bit of sand on the leeward wingtip can help but at the end of the day the most important thing is to make sure that there's nobody/nothing downwind within two kite line lengths in case everything goes tits up and you have to fl...

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

all it needs is for a fold to be compressed for a weak spot to be created. I could be taking your statement in the wrong way, but if you suggest a crease created by a fold is a potential weak spot,.......Not on any LE I have ever seen. I even have a 2013 Best kahoona that I got off of Ikitesurf (be...
