Default Cool Cabrinha Kite Picture

OK, This is off topic, but so is the picture. Turbo you ROCK! One day we've got to meet and go kiteboarding when I visit Stuart. I'll be on the water this afternoon on Okaloosa Island, FL.
Cheers,
George

Default Sugru

Another + for Sugru. You'll wonder how you lived without it.

Shoe Goo is also sold as E6000 at Ace Hardware and elsewhere. Tough stuff.

I had a pair of old crocs that were put into over time by a tube of goo. They fit soooo good.



I know, this is pushing it. 1976. Heading to Bermuda in a c&c 35

Hey, that is not me. I know wind surfing but not with a kite. Enjoy the wind. Hope you have at least 15kts.

Sugru is air- and room-temperature curing silicone rubber putty. Waterproof. Easily moldable. Good texture, can be used for things like earbuds and hand grips. Bonds to dang near everything.

Default Sugru - make your own (we're homebuilders)

Have not tried this yet, but make your own..... just a mix of silicone and starch. Google "oogoo" or:
