  1. Was it you that hydrofoil'd with a Concept Air in Fiskebäck last summer?
  2. Anyone know why there's no new ones since April last year?
  3. Good. I found that brush paint for clothing (fx painting your t-shirt) sticks really good to chikara and doesn't flake. Only good for small area ofcourse.
  4. Yes, forgot about the spar method. It is a good alternative. But may be a bit sloppy on real big flags where the spar have to be over 5 m long? Thanks for the input ?
  5. Hello! If you want to attach a rather big flag to your kite line, what are the best way? 1. Most popular seams to be to attach the top to the kite line and tie a weight to the bottom. Easy and seams to work well, but I don't like the feel to add something (weight) you try to keep as less as possible.. 2. Tie the top and bottom to the kite line. Easy, but the flag tilts alot which doesn't look good. And the bottom t.e. corner is destorted by the wind. 3. As no 2 but with a line between the kite line and the bottom corner of the flag so the flag is level to the ground. Like line laundry. This doesn't work, the l.e. of the flag can not be taut and flapping, destorting the entire flag. 4. Attach the entire top edge to the kite line. Same problem as no 2. 5. Use a triangle flag or a triangle attached to the kite line that the flag is attached to. Like the fock on a sail boat. More cumbersome to prepare. I've only tried no 2 (attached photo) and no 3. Do you have any tips which could be best for a flag of 25 sqm ? Br
  6. Same principle as the old Norweigan ski seil. This is how they 'ski kited' in Norway in the 19:th century long before ski kiting was 'invented'
  7. Regarding wrinkles mentioned in the first post, if you soak chikara in water and hang it up straight to dry, they dissapear.
  8. Here is the standard wf 3.6 bridle if someone is interested. Bridle Peter Lynn Waterfoil 3.6
  9. I wrote wrong before, it's the other way around, first two cells in outer skin and first in bottom. Finally got around to fly it: It's not hard to fly at all, it's very stable in the sky, and responds well with steering input, slow turning yes, but no probs to place it in the window, if you see what I mean. It pulls very hard at the edge without stalling. It has weak autozenith behavior, which not necessarely is bad. The depower does not exists, really. It only make the ears flap, still pulls like a wild horse. FUN :-)
  10. Does anyone have a clue what the humongus single liner is seen in this video from 0.30 to 2.12. Is it comersial or specialy made?
  11. You guess is wrong, as explained in the previos post. But for the sake of things, I agree with you that cross bridling is not safe if you break a front line, then all you (hopefully) can do is ditch the kite.
  12. At 21 sec the AERO jumper is above the other kiters kite
