Re: Why do pros often leash direct to CL?

Im a suicide rider as well and not a pro. As many have said it's better to have 1 release vs 2 if things go south. Plus if your lines are twisted or even some how wrapped around the bar the kite will never flag out. If I was in big waves I would not use a leash at all. I all so made me a front handl...

Re: [Beginner] Looking for a new twintip for Kiteboard and cable park

I have it and it is not that great at the cable. It's really fast which I can handle but the flex pattern is not what I like. The tips don't flex enough and it has too much flex between the boots for my taste. To the original best to get a cable board for the park and a kite board for kite. If you ...

Re: [Beginner] Looking for a new twintip for Kiteboard and cable park

I am thinking about getting the Slingshot Refraction Pro. It is a kiteboard with a grind base that can be used a both the cable park and kiteboardi...

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

I know "hyperlite" has "lite" in the title of the system but how heavy are they? Depends on the boot and the binding. I use the low bindings I like them better. Then I have been riding the AJ's the last 2 years but they don't have them for 18's so I'll be switching to the Webb's. They are not as li...

Re: Grind base material test

Nice! I have been worried about trying to use this stuff because of bonding issues. It is not cheap either.

Replacement SS Valve

Anyone know where I might get a replacement valve at for the new SS inflate system. I don't need a selfstick patch just the screw in valve. The plastic lanyard broke and I lost one to my 17m Turbine. Kinda weird I know but would rather just get the valve vs a whole patch as it is not delaming.

Re: Kiteboard boots setting on board

Shoulder width apart. Adjust your duck to what feels comfortable on your knees. I ride all the way in with very little duck. My knees bothering from time to time so I'm most comfortable this way.
