Re: A caes for full face?

Full face helmets seem like a great idea to me! I think a single bar might be practical like they have for punters in american football. :thumb: Now that you mention that also remember a guy who lost front teeth in KBHF crash on board. Even a single bar well placed could help a lot! R H See that mo...

Re: A caes for full face?

Re: Power.

As only into free ride, the feeling of the least amount of power to fly just feels great most of the time. I find more and more that my fav sessions are less and less wind having to really fly WELL to generate enough energy AND keep the board off the water, and the combination of this is just fun! U...

Re: Why not more canards ?

I personally know of 4 pilots, 2 of which are VERY skilled who have owned canards and now do not! Seems simple enough to test your favorite standard set up and then compare to a canard.
