It is important to be responsible for caring for your bar and lines as these are your primary safety and contact with the kite whilst on the water. The Click Bar is a premium bit of equipment that will benefit from cleaning to ensure that it last your as long as possible and keeps your safety release functioning so that you can be 100% confident during your session!
In this episode of #teamtalk Tom Court talks us through the stopper ball and how you can adjust it to suit your riding style. This is something that is of huge benefit to your control during old school tricks, riding and whilst you are on the beach. It is designed to increase the ease of use and your control over your kite, especially when taking hands off the bar! Both our Click bars and Trust bars have this feature to ensure you can get the most out of your centre line adjustments. The Click Bar also allows you to lock the centre de-power throw distance off with an allen key which is especially useful for smaller riders...

In this episode of Team Talk I catch up with Craig Cunningham out in Cape Hatteras as he talks through the different stance options and why he has moved from a wide stance to a thin stance over the years. What makes a difference with different boards and other styles of riding. If you try different stance options you will find out which once is the most comfortable for you on the water!

In this clip we are down in Brackelsham Board riders in the south of the UK and Lewis Crathern gets out of his box to tell us about the spare parts service at Duotone Kiteboarding.

This is something we are working on in the future to improve our quality of service that backs up our landmark products.
This week we did a global beach clean, encouraging all of our riders and followers around the world to get down to their local beaches and start cleaning. The first step in starting to help our planet recover is to start small and care about your local environment. This was an experiment to see what reach we have to use our network of team riders to do good...
In this video Tom Court shows us what the Duotone UK crew where doing down in Camber Sands on the east coast of the UK. Meeting up with local UK riders and walking the beaches with them to see what we got. Shame there was no wind... but that just mean we got more rubbish collected...
Comment bellow to let us know how your beach clean went!

A sneak peek behind the scenes of a pro setting up her gear and what sort of adjustments she uses. It's so important to adapt your equipment to the conditions, especially at a high level!
