  • G'day Hung and George There is no such thing as first and second gen that is not an accurate way to describe the 2 types of kites that are being sold at the moment. The Cabrinha Crossbow and Switchblade, Slingshot TD, Airush Halo, Liquid Force Assault, Takoon Nova, etc are all "bow" kite based on a design by Bruno Legainoux. Bruno invented the popular C shaped kites we have all...

  • It is usually a design error, although if the bladder is underinflated that may not help. That said, on some kite designs with poor balance with regard to the COG and COB pumping the bladder hard may make it worse! Which kite is is?

  • Hi George Bike shops carry the original Park Tools patch kits that come with most inflatable kites. If you need to make a big repair, get some polyurethane glue, the clear flexible type you get as "seam sealer" from camping stores Cya and Goodwinds Steve McCormack www.kitepower.com.au _____ From: ksurfschool@^$1 [mailto:ksurfschool@^$2] On Behalf Of George Sarris Sent: Saturday, 23...

  • The wind window will tend to be smaller, thats the issue that affects the viability of Stacking the most from a performance perspective, and I guess once you get to the point of handling a stack performance would be your main concern and probable reason for stacking in the first place. Something to do with the added drag of the stacked kites and the stacking lines. Cya and...

  • You should use a bar around 24" for that kite. What size kite have you bought? The bar length is not determined by whether you are a begginer or seasoned rider, it is more determined by the kite design itself. If you put too small a bar on some kites they will not steer properly, or if the bar is too long they will steer too fast. Cya and Goodwinds Steve McCormack www.kitepower.com...

  • Hi Frank It helps a bit in that you would be familiar with how your board will feel, BUT the main skill you need to MASTER in kiteboarding is KITE CONTROL! Focus on that first and foremost and you will learn quickly. Get lessons if you need them. Always point a board at the source of the traction (kite) until planing and then steer/edge away from the source (kite) once on a steady...
