Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

Pivot is a great allround/freeride kite which you probably won’t outgrow your whole kiting career. You can jump high with it, you can ride waves. At the same time it is very user friendly. At the moment I am teaching my 14 year old son on mine. No problem. I was about to write something very simila...

Re: boardshop.co.uk wont care

Ridiculous, that's a hand made board, all it needs is another coat of resin on those areas, and then lightly sanded smooth. it won't affect performance, it's basically custom made, machines don't make mistakes, but they also don't add individuality.

Re: Hello all help with rigging wipika air blast

Give it a go, a lot of us learnt on that kit, and we are still here ! not flying it is like saying " I won't ride that motorcycle because it has drum brakes, or I won't fly that TIger Moth/Spitfire because it's a bit old school" That said, I would suggest you first fly it on a low wind day, and have...

Sketch.png The black area us the FCS single box, a new unused one has a 2mm wall around the top surface, remove the old box, try to save as much foam core as possible, make a few vertical tubes using a screwdriver , theses are to allow the resin to flow downwards and attach to the inside of the dec...

take your time with the resin/hardener mix, a few applications is better than a heat producing mass.

Re: Surfboard's FCS finbox is loose from the board, how to fix it, please?

I'm no expert, but have fixed a few FCS, and a few fake FCS boxs. The fusion ones are much better . As the board is quite thin in that area, it is best to resin the new boxes to both the underside and topside of the board, this can be done after removing the old, earlier single circular inserts, and...

Re: surfboard vs directional kite board

Some very well argued and agreed points, regarding the pro and cons of Strapped and Strapless riding. Good to hear from people who know what they are doing, and a recognition of the "hype" that seems to surround strapless. It's not all hype, but it not always the perfect solution in difficult condit...

Re: Pull the trigger anxiety - Naish Pivot sizing

As Iriejohn says, 12, 9, 7, is better, get a second hand 7m , also I hear the Slash is a very good alternative to the Pivot.
