Re: Anti-slip material on foil board. Where to buy?

Check out online "traction pad". Some surf shops sell then in a roll that you can custom cut. And they come with adhesive backing.

Re: Tips and Tricks to Repair Kites - add your experience!

Try some Goo Gone once you peel off the upper layer (use a hair dryer or hot water to get it off).

Re: Best kite specific 3/2 wetsuit

My 2 cents worth - do not buy online. Different brands are "cut" differently. I bought two 4/3 wetsuits online and both felt like they were strangling me when I tried them on. Had to pay return freight both times. So go to a local shop and try them on. Btw I am still looking for a good suit, but it ...

Re: biggest regret purchase

Another regret I had was when my 2010 Cab xbow 16m blew an outboard strut bladder after 5 sessions (around 3 mos.). Kite was never crashed. Strut bladder was evidently twisted. Local shop that sold me the kite did not do any thing except tell me that Cabrinha in SE Florida would sell me a complete b...

Re: biggest regret purchase

2001 cabrinha black tip 9.4m Bought it off the first owner, and he included another full set of replacement bladders - I asked him "what are those for?" Haha Same here except it was a 21.5m. Had to buy a full set of replacement bladders as Cabrinha would not warranty. It would "Hindenberg" and it w...

Welcome! Get your wife to take lessons too. Otherwise she will be a kite widow like mine unless she likes lounging on the beach soaking up some rays :D .

Re: Cabrinha PU mainline depower tube

I have two 2010 bars with the PU tube. I always rinse/soak my bars in a 5 gal. bucket of fresh water and flush the tube and bar ends with a hose end sprayer. No problems so far.

Re: Valve Delaminating/Repair - 2009 Best HP Nemesis

The valve donuts left residual adhesive on both the valve and bladder. I was able to get it all off with Goo Gone. No problem, just took some time. Was wondering if Aquaseal is better than Stormsure? Or 3M 5200. Sounds like most use Aquaseal. BTW I used Aquaseal a few years ago on a 2006 Waroo but s...
