Re: Kite Materials

I ran my 1.5 SLE to hard to the point where 2 minor tears in the screen (which were already there when I got the kite) have turned into multiple large tears and I'm going to replace the whole screen. Any advise on standard or the best screen material and where to get it from? Also I couldn't find a ...

Re: Gran Haven

I've never been to the event and I have few questions:
1. How does parking work there - are there spots near the beach, how much they charge?
2. Is there going to be the "IKE sector", I just don't want to hang out by myself...

Kite Materials

I looked over my "broken kite" collection and I'll need some 5mm spars, C-stoppers and standoffs. Can you suggest a store in Chicago or a website with reasonable prices for parts and delivery?

Real Power "kites" - Paragliding

I'm from Champaign, which is pretty flat as the city name suggests. I'm looking for contacts or any information on paragliding in the area, either motorized or not. Do you know anyone in the sport, have you seen anyone soaring over any hills around? It seems to be an exciting hobby, not too expensiv...

Re: Ripstop Glue, Threads For Stitches

It's just a close chamber kite with few tunnels on the leading edge to keep up internal pressure for the wing shape. http://www.google.com/images?q=peter+lynn+waterfoil&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-securid&prmd=ivns&source=lnms&tbs=isch:1&ei=6bRSTbmUHpOcgQeMlLWqCA&sa=X&...

Ripstop Glue, Threads For Stitches

I bought an old Peter Lynn waterfoil and the threads fall apart in few places asking for repair.
I'll need to get insight kite a bit and before I "open the patient" the question is what glue would be the best to use before putting stitches back and what thread would work the best?

I'm a bit late, is there still a chance to get into a room/ride share? I think all rooms are full, but you can join in on some airport transportation if you arrive on Thursday around 3pm. Let me know. A bunch of us will be traveling to California in march, be sure to be on the look out for posts on...

Re: Kite Surfing

Spent last week with my family on the dunes and had some fun on the water. Flusurfer Psycho4 12m dragged me just fine in 10knots (unfortunately just bodydragged) and Slingshot Rev 13m popped me into air nicely too. I was missing a windguru.com spot for the dunes and Champaign so I've added both as g...
