Re: [ksurf] Re: Best Sleeveing?
- My friend did that, but I think it was 4mm rope, It work's ok,
But I have a lot of Kiteskiing fiends and I think useing ordinary shoe string type sleeveing would save both time and money,
I have don alot of sleeveing in my days so no instructions are needed, Thx anyway Greg.

- I tried using 2mm sleaving for my q-power lines but there was no-way
it was going to fit through doubled over, i ended up using 4mm, it's
a bit thick but seems to do the job ok.
- Yepp, Soooooo right about that Mark ;o)
As soon as you get over your limit in any way there is a possibility that the lines and the skis get in contact,
It have happened to me when crashing in a satrugi in flat out visibility,
When doing one of my first 720* rotations,
And when one of my less experienced friends borrowed my kite.
And some other times in the past to I think,
