Mosquito modifications that are easy and work great..
- I was looking in the kitesurf group and was reading everyones ideas
how to setup and take down the mosquito faster... I really liked
Kinsley's idea on the ziplock style bag ends for the inflatable
liners, so I got busy this weekend and modified my kite... I bought
some of the freezer bags with the zipper style zip lock ends and cut
slit in my kite bags and siliconed the zipper part from the ziplock
bags into it... It works great.. I can deflate that bags in seconds
now rather than minutes.. I also went out and bought a $10 mattress
foot pump... They are round and flat and when you undo the clip, it
expands... These pumps can pump up the kite bag with only 6-10 foot
pumps.. That saves a lot of time and saves your arms from getting
Now for the condomns.. I read where someone said to take them out of
the kite... I tried it, but it was a real pain in the ass to put them
back in... I went to the hardware store and got some little pvc pipe
falanges... You need to take a dremmel and drill out the small
fittings in the kite (the ones the condomns go over) just up to where
the sewing thread is... Now you take the condomns and put them over
the pvc falange and that just sits right into the plastic ring sewn
into the kite...
Works like a charm and the kite deflates as fast as the Naish now :)
Just thought I would let you know...
