    Land paddle boarding ( land SUP)

    If I had time to prototype I being making a paddle with spring loaded section, like a suspension bike seat post. Compresses when pushed down at the front of the board and then gives you a spring assisted push as you roll past the center of effort.

    Should I ask for warranty?

    Plenty of life left in that shirt. Here's something you can use to patch those holes and the rip. https://www.fixmykite.com.au/ripstop-sail-tape-2-black

    Born-Kite StreetStar

    I've used the NS4 on shortlines, with landboard, inland lakeside gusty winds. My take on it was it's something you do for novelty factor, or just because you can. It's very quick to grab and go, works fine, but if you've got the time then a more typical kite surf/buggy/landboard session will be more satisfying.

  14. Just a question for the experienced kite builders out there, do you just use a standard sewing machine or do you need an industrial machine. I thought maybe a NPW kite might be the way to go as a starting point. Happy for any tips for a good first kite build. I haven't touched a sewing machine for 20 years.

    Maybe its got something to do with fishing. Can't find that ad, maybe its sold. This ad gave me the thought maybe its fishing related. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/petersham/fishing/fishing-kite/1208900308?utm_source=copylink&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=vip_test
