Re: New Core Pump 2.0 released

@NHKitesurfer: sincerely, what is please your impression about the $600 bar? Never mind the price, is it really different? I'm particulary curious about the lines, they say they are thinner than the Core standard ones, that are already very thin, and very stiff. Those TECTANIUM lines are total BS j...

Re: Slingshot - Questions and Answers on the RPM

I'm actually really impressed by this year's RPM. So much so, that I'm switching a couple of my Fuels over to RPMs for the first time to give them a fair shake for the season. I always thought the bar control felt spongy, but it feels real smooth and positive now . So at last in 2015 they finally m...

Re: Who dont use safety leash?

Has anyone a real experience of a runaway kite that created an accident ? About 8 year ago a guy didn't have a safety leash and he released it near from me in 25 knots winds the way his bar just slingshotted 6 inches from my head, so scared the crap out of me. Than finally tangled into another kite...

Re: Who dont use safety leash?

Thanks to a guy without a leash I needed 3 surgery's. After releasing his 12 m his bar got stuck in my lines. Two kites (24 m together) looping made me airborn into a sand dune. Knocked me out and broke my wrist severely. So no, I am not a fan of people not using a leash. Maybe in a spot without ot...

Re: Who dont use safety leash?

agreed. But remember, that many people read this, and google finds also those postings...good to discuss about it and specially beginners see why one should use a leash. Interesting discussion indeed. I changed my mind on one thing: beginners should use a leash, but that would only be for the short...

Re: Who dont use safety leash?

Possibly but I think you're missing the point. The public should never have to take on any risk regardless of how much . Your personally safety is not as important to fellow kiters as much as their access. Plus, at least the dead kitesurfer can't ring up the council when he gets home unlike the par...

Re: Who dont use safety leash?

Jeez, romkite are you trolling or what? I don't unhook either, but have had the kite become unhooked while riding. How is this even a question? Sorry Kamikuza, not sure I get your point. Are you saying that you are using a leash just because you are randomly releasing (QR or chicken loop detaching ...

Re: Who dont use safety leash?

BTW, google Silke Gorldt if you don't know her story. One of the best kiters in the world killed because of a run away kite... Your responsibility! I read the story but do not understand how this relates to the subject. Correct me if I'm wrong but my understanding is that two kites got tangled, one...
