    COATING YOUR KITE..

    @Northern Kites Australia Do you see how on the spray can you linked to it says “silicon lubricant”? That’s why it won’t work. It will never dry. The silicon and turps mix terry talks about uses a silicon sealant, which will dry. you would need to use a clear natural cure silicon. https://www.bunnings.com.au/parfix-300g-clear-all-purpose-silicone_p1232674

    There is a flexifoil buggy for sale on eBay (not mine). Current auction price is at only $56, so it may be a cheap buggy for someone in need. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Fliexfoil-Kite-Buggy-/161226777819?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item2589dd64db&_uhb=1

    COATING YOUR KITE..

    Cheers terry for the write up. It does seem like a very simple method of extending the life of the kite. do you find that the sand sticks to the silicon?

    Filling your kite with Helium?

    Yes! The age old question had finally answered. I’m sure everyone has had this though about how to improve the light wind ability of lei kites, but I guess that idea has been busted. 😄

    Here for advice - Plummet

    @72hundred I haven’t flown the switchblade, but I can tell you that you will not be flying it in 27 knots. Those numbers quoted on the cabrinha website are for twintip riding. They are also the extreme limits of its range. you need a lot less power in a buggy, because there is less rolling resistance / drag and no need to have enough power on tap to get up on a plane like when kiteboarding. another guy that will be able to give you more advice is @roblukin. He flys exclusively pump up kites in the buggy and is a bloody good pilot.

    Kitesurfing Brands... Interesting Video!

    Yeah, it’s a bit crazy how many brands there are. It makes you wonder how the smaller brands survive.

    Now this is interesting

    New material to replace Dacron. stronger, stiffer, lighter
  9. I made mine that the measurement is to the end of the bridle loop.

    Now this is interesting

    The impression I got from the video is that it is just replacing the Dacron struts and the bladder material that s being replaced I can see some super light weight 17m+ LEI’s coming out that will compete with the big foil kites in light wind efficiency.

    Sysmic S3

    Wow, now that is very cool. Very unique way of making the side rails compact for travel. Which is what I found to be the hardest part to pack when I have flown with my buggy.

    It was an epic couple of weeks. Cranking wind every day. Awesome speed runs. Kite repairs. Buggying until after dark. Hanging on for dear life during rain squalls. And most importantly, great company and plenty of laughs. This year had it all. 🍺
