  1. Project speed

    Yeah. I oggled over flex boards back in the day. Even thought about making my own. The Revo design won the internal race in my head for simplicity and near zero maintenance requirements. Nah I haven't got the remaining rims yet. Been trying to find s/h set. Might have to pony up and and buy new.
  2. Look out beaches Poodle360 is back

    I thought i was going to see a 360 deg gopro mounted to a poodle on a beach..... But alas it reminds me of the time i went to the zoo to see only a small dog in a cage. It was a Shih tzu.
  3. Born-Kite RaceStar

    Nice.
  4. No wind toy ideas

    Mine.
  5. Born-Kite RaceStar

    Seems a shame to just stare and them and not use them..... Send em down to me and i'll fly them for you while your back heals up. You can live vicariously through me
  6. May the 4th be with you??

    I cooked myself up a wookiee steak the other day............... It was a bit chewie.
  7. Worn out Springs

    I havent run springs since March 2009
  8. It’s not my problem. Worrying trend.

    As I said on kiteforum you cannot rely on random others to save you. At hydrofoil speeds and upwind angles you are very quickly out of immediate veiw and too far to easily swim in. We need to take our own rescue into your own hands. Epirb, whistle, hand held 2 way radio, cell pH in a water proof case. I don't have any of those things yet. But I intend to get an epirb at the least. Particularly for those times I'm well away from the croud. As I said on kiteforum you cannot rely on random others to save you.

  9. Closed Cell Launching Tips

    I generally agree with gunna's launch tips. Except i dont waste time pre-inflating. I just launch uninflated, hold bar pressure on until inflated in the air!

    Wow. I reckon it takes me 3-4 years to do 2237km!

  12. Advice seeking on how to tune bridles - A,B,C and Z

    Thats because its a crap kite. But google mixer adjustment and extended mixer adjustment. Kiteforum has a long thread on it some where. Does panch publish bridle lengths? Essentially you measure the a's b's, c's and adjust them back to factory. then extend the brack lines to suit. Here ya go sift through this. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2390593&p=967192&hilit=extended+mixer+adjustment#p967192

    I am keen to fly these. They looks way better than the original born kites. Should make a good dune kite. How much are they?
