Ocean Rodeo Discussions 2014-04-10T16:04:47Z Copyright (c) 2014 ExpressionEngine tag:oceanrodeo.com,2014:04:25 Stance Width Mako 140? tag:oceanrodeo.com,2014:forums/viewthread/.4477 2014-04-10T16:03:11Z 2014-04-10T16:04:47Z windtzu Stance width options…I know the short answer with “traditional” twin tips.  I’m wondering what the difference is, if any, with the Mako (140).  I’ve been riding it on the middle stance width settings, but going to try it on the inside-smallest width.  I’m 5’6” tall with legs to match my “t-rex” length arms.

Next gen supercomputer unveiled at Edinburgh uni tag:oceanrodeo.com,2014:forums/viewthread/.4440 2014-03-26T12:33:35Z 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z packers and movers in madurai A supercomputer capable of more than one million billion calculations in a second has been launched at the University of Edinburgh.
The £43million ARCHER (Academic Research Computing High End Resource) system uses Cray’s XC30 hardware and runs on Intel’s Xeon E5-2600v2 processor.
Created with funding from the EPSRC, it has up to three and a half times the speed of the HECTOR supercomputer system which it replaces.
The computer’s twin rows of black cabinets are supported by the newly installed UK Research Data Facility, bringing together the UK’s most powerful computer with one of its largest data centres.
It can also support Big Data applications, which should help researchers carry out complex calculations in areas such as calculating the airflow around aircraft, simulating the Earth’s climate or designing novel materials.


Converting SLE 3.0 bar to Fusion tag:oceanrodeo.com,2014:forums/viewthread/.4415 2014-02-22T16:24:14Z 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z Patkites My main bar is a 2012 Fusion and I really like it.  I also have an older, backup,  SLE 3.0 bar.  Both bars have similar parts except the SLE has a pulley on the trim line and the Fusion trim line directly attaches to the swivel.  The Fusion also has a mini 5th line.  Is it possible to convert my SLE 3.0 into a Fusion??  Could I just purchase a new trim line and mini 5th line or would these changes screw up the design of the SLE bar?

Thanks for any and all advice,

I’m flying a 2012, 12m rise. My question is, what difference if any do the 3m extentions have on the kite? My original strings were 23m. These are 21m plus the 3 extra meter extentions.
Thanks for any info on this.

2013 Razor 12m did not completely roll over after safety release (Fusion bar) - how to correct? tag:oceanrodeo.com,2013:forums/viewthread/.4318 2013-08-20T22:10:30Z 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z Bruno Hi OR riders,

A few weeks ago I purchased a 2013 Razor demo kite with a fusion bar (the somewhat older model with the bend). The last two weeks I had the chance to get to know this kite in France.

At one session, the wind dropped, resulting in the kite kite crashing on the water. Because of the low wind speed I was not able to relaunch it. When I decided to release the safety system so I could roll up the lines and make a floating package of the kite, I noticed that the kite would not flip over completely to it’s back, which made it hard to roll up the lines. It was not far away from the shore, so I decided to drift a bit further and got safe out of the water.

I was however surprised that the kite did not roll over to its back. After studying the bridle afterwards, it seemed to me that the stopper knots were preventing the kite to completely flip over (see attached picture, knot to the left of the right pulley). Probably because the knots were forcing the bridle to keep tension on the front wing tips.

Am i correct about this or am I missing something here?
Is this the intended bridle setup?
Does this not occur in stronger winds?
What will happen if I move the stopper knots closer to the pulley on the left side of the picture? I guess that completely removing the knots completely is no option because the line is too thick at the end and would wear too fast or make the pulley stuck.
And most of all, how to fix this?

Many questions… I am looking forward to reading your opinions about this.

Broken bungee cord tag:oceanrodeo.com,2013:forums/viewthread/.4302 2013-08-06T02:40:13Z 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z anette82 Hey, I just purchased my first Ocean Rodeo kite. I got a second hand one since I’m new to the sport. I’m rather accident prone, and when I was out testing it the other day the bungee cord holding the safety release in place managed to snap. Does anyone have any clever ideas on how to repair it without purchasing a new chicken loop? Adding photo to show what I mean.
Any suggestions? I can’t kite with it like this cos it keeps self-releasing.
