Re: Duty to warn

Lol I'm 190 and I could not handle a 14m in that much wind. Mid 20s max and it would have to be flat water. I have warned people against going out on multiple occasions myself. Most people usually end up thanking you if you take the time to really explain the reasons they should avoid certain condit...

Re: TwinTip Fin Size Selection

Fin size is all pref when it comes to TT's. I only use wake fins so small .75" or smaller. Or I don't use fins at all. I like a loose skatey feeling.

Re: Kiting alone offshore

We have a local off shore wind spot. A lot of folks will not go there because of it which is fine with me. We have a 5 mile long dike that stretches into our bay. The best part about it's a 2 mile down-winder to the local spot that is side-side on shore. Off shore is fine depending on the spot and o...

WOO G's?

Just wondering how accurate can an accelerometer be at calculating G-Forces? I have never used one outside of the WOO.

Re: Twintip Advice for Heavy Rider

Probably would not be a good light wind option but if you don't it for light wind then the 160 would be pretty good for your size. http://www.slingshotsports.com/2017-Nomad#.WLsy9X9yV3w I know it's not a kite board, but sometimes you just have to jump outside the box. Other than that I would recomme...

Re: Is 16m too much for me?

Something people never do think about is air density when picking out a kite or kite sizes. I'm 190 lbs and I will fly my 17m Turbine up to 15-16mph. Much higher than that and unhooking becomes too hard. Our air is not that dense on the Gulf Coast due to the humidity. If I was in a drier climate the...

Re: Which boots fit liquid force boards?

Yeah I got to look at them before they even hit Surf Expo. One of the locals is very good friends with one of the LF reps and he was trying to sell me on the new track system. I just have had a habit of pulling out tracks when SS had them. SS dropped the track as well as Hyperlite so I'm pretty sure...

Re: Which boots fit liquid force boards?

There are some boots that will not work. CWB has a pair that use four screws like a snow board boot. All so the new boots Liquid Force has for their track system cable boards might not fit. All others should fit. Industry standard is now 6 inch both wake and kite.

Re: Reinvent the kite comp

http://www.pointschase.com/index.html This is a amateur comp they do with the cable parks. It would work very well for a set of regional event if it was hosted by local shops in an area. In the USA for instance you could do the Gulf Coast, East and West Coast, and the Great lakes for your regions. B...
