  • I've been wanting an excuse to share my experience with homemade ply TTs. Varnished ply would be hard to spot in the water. Go to a ship Chandlery and they will put you onto the right stuff of any colour. I have built a LARGE TT from 4mm ply for training purposes. It's 3000mm by 50mm and weighs just under 5kg. This board ollows me to put a beginner on the water in light wind,with a...

  • Hi all! I've been trying to find information on making an extralong Chicken Loop for my ARX. Can some-one help me with some instruction please? I sail in large wind ranges and need to compensate for the gusts quickly. Advise on adjustment and line length would also be appreciated. Durko

  • I've been trying to learn kiteboarding on inland dams for over two years now and I am still not past the beginners stage. Inland might be so-so for experienced kites, but it is just plain dangerous , for a beginner. Anyone contemplating selling a kite to someone living more than 100Kms from the coast should consider their actions reckless. Any kite that is safe enough to use inland...

  • Thanks for the reply. I've had the opperation 5 weeks ago & still must wait another 6. Alls well & it should be as strong as before but you must exercise.
