[filed under Kites]Peter Lynn: S-Arc
G-aaah! I took out my 630 Arc this weekend in 24-27mph winds, and while I was trying to launch it, the kite inverted and the lines got tangled round the spar. The upshot was the spar ripped through the end of the pocket. G-aaah! No kitesurfing for me that day :-( I will take some photos of the repair process.
And I will also have to learn how to launch the thing. It's so hard to launch without it inverting then tangling the lines. I hate launching this kite.
Ok, finished repairing my Arc, here are the photos.
Well, testing my repaired Arc this weekend I managed to snap my plyboard.
Sooo, one new kiteboard later [ North Dragon L ]..... and more Arc news. This time the other spar punched through the webbing. Nice one.
Rad. I haven't looked this far back in my blog for ages. Todays date is 11th April 06, I have sold my Arc (crap kite for kitesurfing) I have also sold my North Dragon (loverly board) and I now own a 9m Fuel, a 13m Fuel and an 18m X2. I also have a new RRD XXX board. Sweet, sweet kitesurfing tools.
