Re: Need help identifying thrift store Quadrifoil

Kite probably older than Kiteforum. Doubt it's worth the hassle unless you have a masochistic interest in tuning bridles of old kites. Traction kites have come a long way.

Re: Tips for beginners

Sheet out the bar and let it fly fast if you want power.

Re: Stem Cell therapy works

http://time.com/4703909/stem-cell-treatment-lose-vision/ I love to hear a success story and I do really believe stem cell and regenerative medicine hold a lot of promise. However I would compare stem cell today to early aviation in the 1920s. There were winners but casualties as well. Hopefully the ...

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

Racers want to win. Still have a great kite if its a year old. I'm glad the 3 gallery concept of Speed 4 Deluxe is back and my guess is the development is more challenging that we know considering they did not scale up the Speed 4 Deluxe.

I'd like to see a Psycho5 myself.

Re: LE Stiffeners

Possibly the plastic filament for a 3d printer or a weed whacker? Could attach with AquaSeal or ripstop tape. I would be curious to know how it works out for you.

Re: flysurfer 12m speed lotus - Repair help almost broken stearing line

Looks to me like the tail is coming out of the splice in the images shown. Wear from crossed lines should occur about 10 meters south of the area you show in the photograph. Is it your only kite and bar? Easiest to use a second bar to finish the vacation. Jorwis suggestion is reasonable but beware: ...

Re: Wil there be innovation in 2018??

Regarding the three major areas of true development the sport has seen in recent times: strutless kites, foil kites and hydrofoils, all we have seen from the big kite brands is appropriation, not innovation. Lots of folks have been riding upwind and in lighter wind on performance foil kites for a d...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a foilkite fan

Totally stupid to use the unit mph, as nobody understands what it means, and it is NEVER used for measuring wind speed. Alas for unknown reasons 350,000,000 people West of the Atlantic refuse to join the rest of the world in adopting SI. Our aviation and nautical weather websites report in knots, b...
