  3. Bye Dad.

    Sometimes things just don't go to plan... Jim Theodorakopoulos 26/09/1963 - 10/11/2018 My Dad's battle with cancer is now over, but the memories he left behind are not. For nearly 15 years he'd come to our Sandy Point meets and lend a hand, a lot of people here will remember him from the XK Meets where he'd come setup the Gyros and cook. Dad's first passion was Fishing, he'd always pack his rods then comment that I would "find the windiest blown out places on the face of the earth." So eventually he put the rods away, bought a Kite Buggy and packed that instead. Once his kite control and confidence grew, so did the blind optimism that despite whatever the forecast said it was going to be a good day's kiting and we should go! I'll miss him, our family will miss him, and his grand daughter who grew exceptionally close to him the last six months will really miss him.
  4. Super intersting!
  5. Bye Dad.

    Thanks guys, and appreciate those who came to the funeral. The morning before the funeral I dressed Dad with the family and he went wearing his Extreme Kites Buggy T-Shirt underneath his suit It has gone from being very real and being incredibly hard, to just a surreal feeling of emptiness. My kiting gear is still stored at his place, so it's a bit raw at the moment to go load up the buggy on the car without him to go for a kite. The aim is to enjoy Christmas then get back in the buggy in the new year, and have a big gyros.

  12. For those that enjoy a sail between their legs...
  13. First time foil flight

    Picture of your bar setup? The new trim ropes for the Ozone bars have a bungee in them. If you're handy you could buy some 2mm/3mm bungee cord and splice it through the centre of your trim line yourself. Your other option is to get a metal ring, have it run around the centre depower line and attach the loose end of the trim line to it. Similar to the way Peter Lynn do it here.

    I see a trend starting here @Cheezycheese GT-Rapide & PL Phantom1's..... you're welcome here anytime I really like the new rear-axle connection on the Rapide V, and the new footpegs with the GT in the middle are sweet.

  19. Eco Charging....

    You're all doing it wrong... No tents, no sleeping bags, no food. Really get back to nature... dumped in the middle of nowhere, naked, with the rhythmic clapping of your thighs as you walk for music.
  20. Enjoy flying a North Rebel? It may very well become a Duotone Rebel or TRUE Rebel for 2019 North Kiteboarding is now Duotone Sports ( https://www.duotonesports.com ). Dealers around the world are currently having their meetings, with the new product range being introduced to them. Watch this space
  21. Duotone / TRUE Kiteboarding 2019 Gear

    And now it gets more interesting So B&M (Boards & More) we're designing and manufacturing North kites such as the Rebel, Vegas, Dice etc, they also make ION accessories and a few other brands. They're now moving forward as "Duotone" or "True" ... However the owners of the North name (Oakley Capital / North Sails/Group) apparently are re-entering the market and will keep the North brand going... So essentially the design team behind the largest selling brand became Duotone... North, one of the longest names in the history of Kiteboarding will now essentially start all over... https://www.kiteworldmag.com/news/northkiteboarding2019/
