Re: Fiji - Tavarua

I get that's not an option to fiji tho. The one airline I reslly hate is Hawaiian. Hooooorrrible service. Yeah, I'm prett...

Re: Fiji - Tavarua

It does not appear that Fiji Air has an exemption for golf clubs, as many airlines do. So it might be less likely that the kite/golf bag gets through (no experience with them, just my guess) https://www.fijiairways.com/flight-information/excess-oversized-baggage/ My lesson learned lately: I got cha...

Re: Fiji - Tavarua

Ok, another question for anyone who has flown Fiji Airways - I'm debating whether to take my "golf bag" or not, it's 155cm. Fiji has a linear dimension max of 168 cm, the question is - do they enforce that regularly or can I get away with a golf bag as a normal checked bag as I do with the domestic ...

Fiji - Tavarua

So, about 7 months ago I broke my foot skateboarding (actually just stepping off a skateboard, and it was a longboard, so I barely refer to it as skateboard other than it had wheels), anyways, I was pretty bummed, middle of our kite season. The next day I got a call from the good folks at Trace who ...

Re: Not happy with Ion/North after sales service

I have to give it to Ion/North - they replaced my harness after warranty. Hopefully this one won't snap.

Re: GoPro Session Waterproof enough for kite impacts?

Same, I've had it for awhile, but I mostly use a line mount or some sort of mount on my body, not the board. The board angle is kinda pointless and that's how I lost my original GoPro

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

Yeah, I'm debating what to get right now too - I've always ridden Dakine Renegades, they held up well and just worked. I switched (because I lost weight and needed a new size) to a Ion Apex Select, which took awhile to get comfortable, but once I got used to the fit was super comfortable. The only p...

Re: Not happy with Ion/North after sales service

Reviving this thread - I've had my Ion Apex Select for 14 months and it pinched my ribs at first and their rope slider had a horrible design (one piece of rope looped through two eyelids with knots on the other end - shredded it in 3 sessions - I changed it to 2 pieces of rope with knots on each sid...

Re: New Gear from Ocean Rodeo

Quick video on the Jester, Leo on the 9.5m Roam & Stick Shift bar . https://youtu.be/tJPgxoDAEvQ Roam_9-3.jpg Roam_9-5.jpg Great video - I like the old school Naughty by Nature too. I'm going to switch up my Jester to a quad, I've mostly ridden it as a thruster, because it felt harder to release th...
