Re: Slider construction - surface material?

No real need for anything over it if you have a good grind base board. One of the cable parks I ride has a 4inch carbon pipe flat rail that works fine. All so VWC has a few straight metal rails. The 2" square tube hand rail in to the pool gap is one of the sickest rails out there. If you really want...

Re: Any paragliding pilots around here?

I've done a bit of paragliding and a ton of PPG. I'm not sure I agree that kiting is so much more safe than PPG (maybe PG yes). As someone said, it all has to do with your approach. If you stick to the rules you learnt during your training a serious accident is very unlikely to happen. PPG is usual...

Re: choosing twin tip SIZE you give more importance to your weight or how much you are overpowered or underpowered?

Board is by weight. Kite boarders have this really screwed up in the thought process. The only way I would recommend a smaller board vs your weight is if you like doing board offs. In this instance your probably riding a larger kite for longer hang time and it's easier to toss the board around. A l...

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 a long time cable park rider and got into kiteboarding late last year. I have looked into getting a crossover board that I can use in both places. 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...
