Never mind apologies, a little explanation is what's required, so... 1)A high aspect ratio kite any brand it doesn't really matter, has to be ridden fast to develop it's power, that's why they work, like a high rev engine, the power only cuts in when the revs are achieved. So it is with Hi Aspect ki...

Australians

It is an inescapable fact that when someone from Europe is communicating with an Australian, the Australians head is in fact further away than his arse.

You can therefore quite factually state that all Australians talk through their arse.

Unless of course they're up here then they use their nose.

Well my friends I'm done with this and off to bed. You can believe my words, or listen to a Takoon sponsored rider from Portugal, who probably got to be good enough thanks to his Fuels last year, but because he's using a seat harness is loosing speed by not being able to edge hard.. more to learn Pe...

Pedro I am SS biased. Talking to a guy who wants to know about the SS Fuels Now I know more about them than you do. You clearly don't know how to ride Slingshot kites by what you are saying, and your reference to the "kite retailers here" also suggests to me you have some negative reason for recomme...

I'm gonna guess it's a retro deal, it'll be a harness spreader bar, some sort of leash system, and I expect you'll be able to get either all or part of the bits depending on what you need. Most of the yanks currently use a shackle called Tylaska, the Brits favour the Wichard, personally if I'm worri...

I guess what your referring to is the clip and ride release, which is really a last gasp solution in the event of not being able to unhook or release a shackle. So yes if you fire this off, then you are assumed to be in the shit anyway and ditching the kite is the only solution. Slingshot are just a...
