I am pretty sure this is a tannin stain.. but since It was not mine when stained, I am not 100% sure. So far I have washed it with a high Ph detergent used in car washes... I gave the white sections a spray of 50% chlorine bleach .. but the stain has not yet been effected? It looks like tannin because my bayside launch has a lot of it - but I am usually able to wash it off before it sets.
...it could, maybe, be offsetting from the black panels that divide white and yellow because there are stains that are angled like the black divider on both white and yellow panels... Anybody have any luck with other cleaners?
I mention Epic in the subject line because I want to tell anyone looking for stump-pulling kite do not pass on one of these. I am incredibly
pleased with the power available in this 2010 Screamer 14. I have had a bunch of kites, this is one of the best. I am still tuning it but it appears to be able double or triple thrust nearly instantly. It reminds me of the Ripper from Eric in Cabarete that has a similar, after-burner effect.
I have a custom bar/line set with a long depower and a harness for the center strut to make it a 5-liner because I self-launch and land, in the water, off a section of sand about 2M wide, 95% of the time and feel much safer, especially when landing, with the lesser tension on a 5th vs. any 4 line kite I have had.
