Someone here once said they used thinner plastic zip ties to act as a pressure release on the leash connection to the board.

Re: Best split boards 2016

Re: what's better? 2 old Cab SB kites or 1 new one?

I just got 2 new 2018 sb 9 and 11, replacing 2012’s, and really liked them. Rode the 9 almost every day. I would go for a new kite.

If you wait a month or two, next model year will be out, and you can a new 2018 at a discount, or get the newest model.

By coincidence, I talked Phil recently, he’s a great guy and he really has excellent kite skills on the water!

Re: 2-way waterproof radio /headsets?

Maybe try hacking the radio, maybe crack open the case and taking out the electronics and consider the best arrangements on or in the helmet and then figure out how to secure them an waterproof them. I’ve had good luck using silicon sealer from the hardware store to as a glue and waterproof material...
