North Coast

Going to be coming accross to Ireland for a few days between the 20th and 25th of May after reccomendations along the lines of "miles of beach, if there is no wind then try surfing, if there is no surf there is the pub"! Going to be travelling from Port Stewart through Londonderry and acro...

sorry you already said you have, thats the problem with being on nightshift, brain like mush!! I have never needed to use the landing handle, walking up the 5th line is easier, but like you say if the kite is semi-powered that is easier said than done.

Have lost the bar a few times on the 15m whilst doing unhooked stuff and never had the problem you are describing, kite sits happily on the 5th line waiting to be either landed or relaunched. Maybe its something to do with the increased size of the 18.5 or have you had the same problem with the 12?

I have been flying the new axis bar with 5 lines on a 9 and 15 metre fusion. Best bar I have ever used. The traditional depower is there but you also get the adjustable 5th line, amazing when combined with the fusions. Was out in 35mph gusting to 45mph (I weigh 11 1/2 stone) the other day on the 9 w...

Retrofitting 5th line

I have seen a few originally 4 line kites retrofitted with 5th line by re-enforcing the pump leash. Do kites not specifically designed to fly with 5 lines cope with the modification and if so, are there any kite repair shops that can do the mod? and is it worth it?

Sweet! Thanks for that, unfortunately I live about as far away from Hayling Island as you can get (Glasgow) so unless I get very lost I am unlikely to be down in that direction. Probably be looking for a slightly bigger size (ride the XX 130x36 at the moment and find it a bit too small) but cheers f...

Yeah I managed to burst my 2004 CO2 from front to back after a moderate hit off the water. Don't know whether it is partly to do with the RECON system, the way the thing twists and bends when you pull the release is painful to watch. Not that I will have to anymore, replaced it with a Storm III :-)

Must be good if you travel those kind of distances! Will see if I can sort out a weekend to get up instead - flying by myself on a remote beach probably isn't the best plan :shock: - Will have to stick to Troon in the meantime.
