  1. Just a small update Reviews have been imported quite successfully, a handful of these will need manual cleaning up so I've created a little label that just has 'pending cleanup' on there. On the bottom of all the reviews imported from Race Kites there will be something similar to what's here: \ I'm estimating I'll have the reviews accessible to everyone over the weekend, just a few small things left to clean up which I'll do after the kids go Zzz each night.

  2. Extreme Kites over the past month has had an enormous influx of content, the challenge now is to make that content discoverable through different parts of the website. To meet that challenge I need help from a few people. The first step is to work through the 1600+ reviews that now exist on the website and apply the relevant tags and filters such as LEI/Foil/Arc, Manufacturer, Size to each review. There’s no automation for this, it’s a manual process so a few extra hands would be great! The second step is going on a discovery mission and finding reviews in the Forum and moving them

  4. Most excellent work .Joel I was on the flexiforum right back when it was just a black thread based system and there right till the end of kitecrowd (one week there … next nothing but the main page... no warning or anything). Made a number of life long friends so has a very special place in my heart. Still fly but not so often these days good on you mate! (now where's my avatar? - lol)

  5. Here's mine. Started life as a GI Flight Lite. Then velcro bindings, revos and granny wheels were added (good old MBS 3 spoke hubs). Then after some time, I had longer axles made up 100mm wider. Then a make-over with the board being patched up a little and carbon fibre vinyl wrapped, new grip tape & Trampa grab handle added. The most recent addition was MBS F5 bindings.

    Kite Regrets

    i do understand why the bladeiv 6.5 would be great for buggying as its easy to fly , no luffing like earlier blades , and has a big wind range - i remember when the iv came out and all the flexi riders were flying them and going really well , mark everitt said to me the iv has lost the glide that the 3 had and the more i thought about it ,he was spot on ,i had the full set of 3's on handles ,(always flew on handles), and even the 3metre b3 had that glide , i have had many great sessions with that kite in high wind and it is so stable in big winds and a lovery kite to jump with -the only blad

  7. I've used the Ronstan Shock Blocks on my foil kites. They work fine. The coloring wears away, but the alloy itself is quite solid. Rinse and dry after use, to avoid corrosion. They come in two sizes. The larger 16mm version is just a few grams more than the smaller one. Well worth as pulley replacements.

  17. I think this provides a nice impression of kitesurfing the lagoon in front of Leucate La Franqui in the south of France. Kite is the Ozone Alpha 12m, filmed in 360' on GoPro MAX mainly, with some drone shots edited in on DJI Mavic Air 2. Enjoy!

    Pimped Boards

    There's some nice looking boards. The Revo's do look sick, when they're all shiny and new!

  36. HQ Neo II 11m. More like an 8m gutless piece of &^%#&^%#&^%. No upwind ability. Hardly any power. Trashed it. Kept the bar and lines though. Ozone Octane 4m on fixed 4-line bar. Oh that was the kite from hell. Only tried it on land, but has no tolerance for gusts, which is a bad combo. Kept lofting me. Crash landed more than I can imagine, but heck... I learnt landboarding with her. I hope the guy in Adelaide that bought it is still alive. And yess.... the one and only.... Peter Lynn WaterFoil - urrghhh... I shudder even now thinking about it. Got this for free from Jon.

  37. @.Joel no worries. Glad to be able to bring all this absolute goodness back to life. Most of the images were restored - only those with dead links remain. If anyone wants to amend their posts from the past with the right photos, just me a PM and we can fix it up. I have also put most of these into a new Board Gallery, for viewing pleasure, located here; I will monitor this thread and add any new pictures into the gallery as well. So, who's next - @m.klinge @Mfwetu i'm looking at you guys. And @Pari once your new board is pimped and ready please 😃

  39. During this COVID lock down and losing employment because of it I decide I liked being home and it was time to start my own business. I bought a 3D printer to help with design projects- prototypes etc. It’s been fun trying stuff out, and I’m going to see if I can rebuild my old Revo truck board using printed parts. I’ve designed the main truck housing to use tradition skate truck hole setup as the original Revos have a specific setup which means drilling into your board. I’ve printed this first test setup with PETG, which it the same plastic used in plastic drink bottles. So I’m

    3D Printed board parts

    That would be handy just to know the proper dimensions of the original Revo elastomers. I've got mine at 20mm wide and 40mm diameter, but I found them tough to compress into the housing even though I think that is what the original dimension were. I found that a width of about 19mm wide works best for these truck housings, but I have a set ready for anyone needing some for their Revos. Got a test run in today with both trucks on and I have to say I am a happy chappy. They are stable yet turn really nicely, I really enjoyed just carving up on them.

  43. Don't be ashamed. Here is my attempt at a repair. If I were you I would send the Rhino off for professional repair or try your hand with those aftermarket bladders. I've used a similar bladder company, I think it was U-Stick. You have to position and stick the new valves on yourself, but it was easy enough.

  44. i was on the beach the day that mark everitt jumped and flew a loop and andy preston took that picture , it was a big jump and the savages are fast kites , the evo3 was fast as well , i flew them for 6months testing them and they were very stable and jumped nice , i still have the 8 , 10, and 12 very pretty kites

  45. Excellent that sounds very promising, dude. I'm not entirely sure the model of Revo trucks I'm running but they're not the P shape mount ones. I've got them inverted to lower my board centre of gravity.

    Kite Regrets

    I'd have to say my 2014 Liquid force Envy 12M. Just felt heavy, not very much power for a 12m and crap up wind ability. Got a Pivot 11M after it, much better kite.

  47. UPDATE: I got a half decent session in this morning, about 10 knots and a beautiful large flat area to kite, with the tide out, down the bottom end of Kingscliff. Twenty minutes kiting with jumps and power slides. The last power slide smashed the rim off. Interestingly this is the rim that I had previously broken by bouncing it of the concrete floor just to see what would happen- of course it broke a bit of the rim off, DOH! I hid this on the inside of the tire. When I looked at the break and the pieces I can see it broke across there because I sanded the sharp break and there is a d

  48. Yeah, "old School" test pilot is more my thing. I got a nose bleed just reading the stress analysis procedure. There is info on line, one guy in particular, who has a YouTube channel called CNC kitchen, his approach is all stress analysis and various material properties etc. of 3D printed parts. But I spent last night putting together my current board, the crap one I've been using for the last couple of years since my Revo elastomers failed and I went to my skate trucks board. I cleaned it all up, put the new tires and tubes on, and put the two prototypes of the printed wheels on. When I

    Extreme Kites moves to .ORG

    It’s no secret that Land Kiting over the past decade has suffered a loss of momentum, as the number of kiters has reduced the fragmentation of the community has increased. This has accelerated how disjointed we are as a community from resources that were once easier to access. Today Extreme Kites has moved to a .ORG domain to clearly signal to everyone that we want you to join us and be part of our community. To help bring more of us together from all over the world, and in turn hopefully together reconnect and enjoy information and content that we thought had been lost forever. Th
