Re: Delta Hydrofoil's George Hradil talks foil design and the future of the sport

Guys, thanks for the posts and all the comments!
I found this topic while searching for any info on NP FRX OD. My interest was triggered after I heard a guy on FRX kit (inflatable kite) won over all the ram air kite rivals, mostly Ozone!
Well, that's already something!

Re: Dropping the hook & slider, BRM bar and Ride Engine mod.

If you don't wanna drill, cut or weld anything, just get any of the current versions of the NP aluminum spreader bar, unscrew the 3 bolts and fix whatever you wish there. Their 2018 new pad looks much neater than the older one. They say it fits almost any harness brand and is sold separately, so it'...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

i would like to say a huge thanks to Karsten at Wingworks for helping me realise a dream - I have just made, flown and hydrofoiled with a kite made by me and a sewing machine! I contacted Karsten 6 months ago after reading this thread - I mentioned that i am a great fan of strutless kites, already ...

Re: The Cabrinha Fireball (New Connector Safety Issues)

I'm really glad I didn't see earlier this new topic on the Fireball... looks more like a BRM Cloud discussion :) To the concerns raised about accidentally loosing the Fireball (I call it Chicken Dick) - you could just attach the QR directly to the D-ring of the safety leash. Won't be great for long ...

Re: Cabrinha 2017 New bar connector rumour?

On the compatibility/interchangeability of the Fireball system - it's all well shown in the video!

Re: Cabrinha 2017 New bar connector rumour?

They do have balls to launch such 'innovation' without having sorted out compatibility/interchangeability, as discussed above. :oops: You sure about that? Or assuming ? Thanks for this question! I always do ask myself the same when making early assumptions :) I neither work for Cab nor in their dis...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Nope. I posted the link in another topic related specifically to Cab's new chicken dick. But it's appropriate here as well.
Toby, how do you post a vimeo link with preview image? Thanks.
