  1. 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

  3. I had a zipper on my 16m venom 2 give up on me last week. Bloody frustrating, as it was the inflate zipper and I was about to launch ?. The slide was so worn out that it won’t close the teeth anymore. anyway, I have fitted new waterproof zips to an arc before, but they can be a bit expensive and hard to find. So I thought it was a good chance to test out a Velcro alternative. its basically just a short sock and Velcro opening similar to the deflates in the flysurfer kites. the Velcro valves work quite well. I inflated the kite and slowly opened the Velcro. No air was escaping u
  4. Yep, I'm thinking of building a light wind kiteboard. This will be my first attempt at building a kiteboard so I'm trying to keep it simple (and cheap), but also don't want to have to build it again after only a few uses. So I'm after a bit of advice and ideas from those who have gone there before. the basic plan a broad 1600mm x 500mm. Use a bottom layer of 4mm hardwood ply brace and a top (smaller) layer of 7mm construction ply. Glue them together with epoxy resin. then coat the entire thing in fibreglass and epoxy resin. I'm hoping that the 4mm ply on the bottom will still give a bit o

  6. Following on from one of my previous threads on Buggies with Skiis, here are the links to the FoilMaker software to design your own twin skin foil kites or pick from tried and tested designs. Once the shape is dailled in it then gives you the option to print the flat pattern to paper ready to cut out and manufacture the kite.

  7. I spent many hours working through the great kite resources found on the web and decided to build a NPW5 for my first large project. The information available to scratch build this kite is great and I had no trouble sorting out the building process. The NPW5 since it's a single surface kite wth a low number of parts was not so complicated to sew except for the seam construction that took some tests on scrap material to get right. It built up in about four evenings, about 16 hours to complete. The bridal is simple arrangement and worked up with not too much fuss. Use the procedur
