Re: Best Way to Fly with Gear in 2017

Yeah we ALWAYS curbside check WHEN available! That's the problem though....we checked in for a 5:00 am flight at 3:00. No curbside available and the counter agents looked just thrilled to be there that early. Many smaller airports don't have curbside either. But it is the way to go. Just have some f...

Re: Best Way to Fly with Gear in 2017

The golf bag trick is out of the bag. (pun!) My buddy and I got dinged in Minneapolis (second time for him in 2 years) with our golf bags even though we were under the linear inches and weight. The dink at the counter asked what was inside, pulled it open and said "if there is ANYTHING in there...

Re: Action cam tips

You're correct, the native version of the movie is always much better than the uploaded/compressed copy. It can be pretty bad when uploaded to Youtube/Vimeo. Youtube has gained a little in higher frame rates and HD quality. If I'm not mistaken, when you have a subscription to Vimeo it uses less comp...

Re: Kiteboarding Wetsuit Recommendations...

Look online for a carry over NP windskin suit. They are great. Just keep your nails trim and buy a couple tubes of Aquaseal. You can Frankenstein it together and get several seasons out of it.

Re: Most influential kiters today

For me: Credit to the OG's. Lou Robbie Two completely opposite styles but both just awe inspiring. Now. Tom Hebert Kevin Langeree Tom just does stuff that I've never seen a kiter do before. Kevin makes going huge look easy. No wakestylers on my list, but I think it's subjective. If I was in my 20's ...

Re: Any place to buy a sand anchor that's safe?

Hey IBKite, you won't be disappointed with the Ultimate. For the few dollars it was to get the heavier duty model, why not. It beats $1500 for a Minn Kota Talon and I can take it with me for solo missions. FWIW I think Sandshark was doing $199, free storage bag and shipping. Get the bag too btw. Oth...

Re: Any place to buy a sand anchor that's safe?

I busted out and bought a Sandshark Ultimate. I did buy it primarily for anchoring my boat when we beach on the sandbars. I did want it to tether launch kites as well. Sure it's kind of spendy just for a kite tether, but it's nice knowing your kite CAN'T pull the anchor out. This thing is full 1&quo...

Re: Why doesn't everybody side rig their lines in launch position?

For us it depends on where we're kiting, the launch space, wind direction and who gets their stuff out first. Many of our launches are small, boony launches that require drift launching anyway. If you're first to rig it's dealer's choice, then you just rig where there is less crap to get caught in y...

Re: Jake Kelsick Vlogs

I like these and Kevin Langeree's Vlogs. They're fun to watch on the smart tv when it's -10f outside here. Makes me miss the beach!

(My wife loves the gratuitous girlfriend butt shots on Jake's vids..... :lol:)
