Re: Pump my Kite, right!

Pressure and Diameter ...Imagine a 6 m² kite has the same LE diameter as a 14 m², for example 8%...resulting in a 11.2 cm LE diameter, drastically smaller than the 14 m² kite... :think: So, in your example the 6 m² LE diameter not the same as the 14 m² LE diameter. Anyway, I learned flying a Cab 4m...

Re: Naish 2019

Still like my old Global and Skater, glad they keep em in the line up. Not so sure what to make of the W tail shapes on the 3 new boards, seems like maybe a marketing differentiator/refresh/gimmick/thingamajig :think:

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

This thread is all about losing the CLs but a lot of good info on QRs and slide setups here. Read a very sad story of a kiter who could not release his shackle and thought I’d share it here since a few posts/designs had incorporated wichard/shackle QRs. In memory of Jeff …I can understand he was not...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

ps would love to hear a more in depth explanation about spectra vs dyneema matteo but of course that's for another topic. If you feel like starting one up I would definitely read it.

Re: heeling free power kite rig on kayak with 21sqm kite

Ingo, Made any further progress on your kite kayak? I saw the new/larger zeeko spitfire (canard) SUP/Surf foil and it reminded me of the Flyak. Seems most kite kayaks are bulky catamarans, downwind prone, and/or pound thru waves. Imagine a kite powered hydrofoil flyak could be fun, after the develop...

Re: Psycho2 convert to FLS

FLS not possible on a 3-liner, but the FDS works fine. I made/used one on my old 3-line FS Titan 15.5, and several other kites since. Reposting http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=1004813#p1004813 ...added a 5th line safety because I was not sure how it would behave/pull if the wind picked up. ...

Re: Who makes their own line sets?

I followed this a couple years ago http://nwkite.com/forums/t-11649.html. A little bit of work, but they probably have 500 sessions on them, still look good and only cost $70 to make... Agree, I've made several sets of these too, some additional info: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=969627...

I purchased a 16M Venom-2...I still got that POS
It'd be cool if you could send that Venom-2 to Pansh so they could reverse engineer and start selling new 19m-10m Chinese "Venom-2s" again :naughty:
