RemarksI haven't pumped up a bladder for ages but seeing that I had spent a few weeks hacking an old carbon windsurf fin to make some nice 5cm kiteboard fins, I didn't need to work on the profile much as the old fin had a good shape. Bolted them to my old Gozo and spent half an hour getting rid of knots on my lines, got everything sorted, right the wind was good, quite stable around 25 knots with the odd 30+, the water was flatish, tide was high, I had the some Tarifa Speed (windsurfers) laughing at me as I dragged over to the waters edge, brought the kite down, headed up wind for about 100m and then proceeded to wipe the floor clean with the windsurfer's on the water, LOL, I also speedsail with windsurfing gear, nice to know I can blast the s..t out of the boys with a kite as-well HAHA!!! Oh, and the fins work :)
