Re: Best bankrupt?

I noticed that BEST must have had some new stock arrive this week. They were down to very limited sizes when I look last week, but they seem to have a wider spread of gear in now- and an extra 25% off for Black Friday. Went through the process of ordering a kite/bar this morning. When you get to th...

Re: Buoy Wear Floating Hat for Kiters

I've lost a few baseball caps over the last few years. Sometimes I find them washed up on shore, however, very hard to find in the surf since the cap usually stays a bit submerged. Would love to see a cap without the mesh in the back since sun protection is the main reason I wear it. If there was no...

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

What a waste of a nice wave. Almost like the kiter was running away from the pocket. Totally understandable if the kiter has no wave expedience. However, don't mess it up for the people(surfer in this case) that are there to actually ride waves. JBrooks nailed it. And yet, the surfer did exactly th...

Re: Correct stance on a waveboard for riding upwind

Try to keep the board flat by using more front foot pressure(more toe pressure, less heal). Use your hips to drive back knee into bend of front leg. (surf stance, not duck stance).This will help to utilize your fins to drive upwind. Think more fins, less edging. Keep your kite low(45 or less). :thumb:

Re: Wetsuit Dryer?!

Hanging a "wet" wetsuit on a hanger stretches out the shoulders. Maybe the shorter time duration to dry will not cause any stretch, however, it would be a deal breaker for me. It is a bitch to put on a cold wetsuit in the morning though. That's why I have 2 of the suit I use the most(3/2 full). If i...

Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

200 + lbs, 17m LEI, Sweet Potato(38 L) w/ Controller fins: I have a blast if it's 10 knots and above(do-able in 9 knots, just limited). The bliss, to me, is the smooth surface conditions/wave faces. Down-the line is out, however, you can hack the hell out of the lip as your heading out, and somewhat...

Re: Most durable kite bar and lines

Second the Slingshot Compstick. Seems like the lines and bar never wear. You give up a little comfort on the bar though(less cushy).
