Re: What is the cost of making a kite look "cool"?

I'm more likely to not buy a kite due to graphics that are distasteful e.g. penis with wings, skeleton, monster or death theme, swimming sperm. . Just when I thought kite surfing was getting lamer than the pink RRD everyone liked in the photo above, you restored my faith in it, with the fact that a...

Which part? My bungee line just snapped. But that's easy DIY fix.
The red line on the red bar. It's a 10m line running up to and including the bungee.

Any advice?

Re: Best bankrupt?

99$ bar. All good until you break a safety line and can't buy the part. I've been chasing a part for 2 months now.. the replacement parts will cost me more that the bar if I get lucky enough to find them.

7 and 9. Especially into the summer.

But seriously, the kite you don't take is the kite you need.

Re: Mystic Majestic X Waist harness Quality

I've seen a couple of the Ride Engines cracking but that doesn't look the same, are you sure it's not scratches?

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

Seriously who wants to promote the sport? Keep it a small community. Less crew = friendly crew

We don't need to grow the sport. Let's just enjoy the moment we have, before it becomes surfing.

Re: Channels on a surfboards

The difficulty in having an engineer design a surfboard is the chop, size and shapes of waves/chaos theory around boards. It wouldn't be easy to model. Surf boards are radically different for different regions. With kiting we have even more factors. Then looking at channels.. They are one factor onl...

Re: Channels on a surfboards

I'm not a fan of channels. I feel its a bit of a fad in kiting. It'll probably help you get up wind. But like in surfing, not great in chop. Wakeboards are different, it's in glassy waters. I find they aren't great for top turns on a good wave. They don't slide as well or correct as well. It's funny...
