Re: Warning about the cheap GoPro mounts

Yeah most of that stuff is so cheaply made that you have to look at it as disposable.

I was looking for a specialty USB cable this morning and found one online for $1.58 SHIPPED direct from China.
I figured if it even worked upon arrival, it would last all of a month. Not worth the hassle.

Re: North Rebel Evo or Naish Pivot

The Evo and Core GTS are about the only two kites on the market that could lure me away from my quiver of Pivots. The Pivots have yet to let me down. I've tomahawked them hard learning tricks, rolled them up in decent waves and have booney style drift launched them in places that kites don't belong ...

Re: Sharpie Marker removel on kite

You could maybe try lemon essential oil. I'm not sure what it will do to the fabric....so definitely try on a small out of site piece first. Shouldn't harm a bladder. I would be tentative using any other chemical that will contact the bladder. It is about the mildest natural adhesive remover I've fo...

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 othe...

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 ...
