  • Hung, Centerline loops have played an important role in many accidents, my own included. Riders need to fundamentally reexamine how they use these devices and safety equipment. I include in safety equipment aftermarket upgrades like snap shackles, quick release loops and lines, helmets, impact vests, etc. Sound like a pain and stuff you really don't need? Lots of riders including...

  • Mel, I understand your original question better now. It was a conventional side pivot snapshackle. It was connected to a shackle, don't know what size. The shackle was in turn connected to the chicken loop. Rick << flkitesurfer wrote: > I think he was using a pivoting snapshackle secured to a shackle > which in turn was secured to the chicken loop.

  • Hung, That was a nasty one! Glad that you came through it in one piece, ready for the next snow shredding session. I hear you, I have yet to encounter a safety depower kite leash that is fool proof. All of the ones that I have tried over the last 3 1/2 years have failed at one point or another. My favorite was a high speed 80 face drag across sand when my Airrush strap tied in...

  • Hello James, Kitesurfing with a foil requires a totally different approach to setup, launching and landing when compared to the same procedures for an inflatable kite. Toss in different handling characteristics while you are kitesurfing and it really takes a different approach from inflatables. You can try to learn about all this in the "school of hard knocks" or you can take...

  • Hung, The American Kiteflier Association offers $100,000. USD second party liability insurance along with their $30. annual membership in the USA only. In effect the insurance addresses damage that the kiter does and not damage to the kiter himself or his gear. It is an incredible deal at the price. It is unfortunate that the coverage covers the US alone but who knows what the...
