Re: What's your ideal size pocket board?

Don't want to hijack thread. On other thread I moan about my noob problem with T40 board. I was getting up and flying pretty easy on my low volume, 4-10, stubby surfboard convert in Mexico. So I'm going back to that board. I'm so used to the concave deck and low volume from surfboard. And it worked ...

Re: I got up

Re: International Core Survey - really? I mean really?

I own 2 Core kites and two bars for 4 seasons, I'm very happy with them. I've even bought spare parts for the bar and rebuilt it. The survey is scary, because it makes you wonder what Core us doing wasting their money and time ask u these kind of questions. It indicates that they have lost touch wit...
