Re: Unhooked - Bar Pressure

All kites will put the full weight of the kite onto your arms when you unhooked. That's why you don't just you know, grab the chicken loop and tug it off! That's too hard. So to unhook here's what you do: bear off downwind so that you are going mostly downwind. the kite will release pressure because...

Re: Boots Vs Foot Straps

I watched the video it's good. The bullet points though they are really confusing (the upwind thing especially is confusing Blake makes it clear in the video what he's talking about). Anyway, don't read the bullet points, they don't make sense, watch the video instead.

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

Nice comments. I'm still riding my cwb boots but at some point shoe goo won't be able to fix them anymore. 10 pounds for a boot is way too much. not a fan of the velcro just too much seaweed where I live. after 10 sessions you might as well be wearing clown shoes. I want my boots firm not too tight ...

Re: Safest Control Bar

You can't do a deadman if you hold onto the bar instead you get the position where your legs are over your head but you still have a grip on the bar. The "stiffie". Not my thing https://www.iksurfmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Pic-D.jpg Gotta let go of the bar if you wanna look styling here. Jus...

Try asking in the swaylocks forum. I got a lot of help from the forum experts there when I built my SUP.

Re: Safest Control Bar

Cabrihna has a few model years and styles of control bars that are decent, figuring out which ones they are is the devil because of how often they change their product line and how fiddly some of their bad bars are.

Re: Safest Control Bar

I don't think it matters if it's pull or push both work fine, the thing is you want a standard so if you have a half dozen control bars (like I do) you don't waste that 1/4 of a second trying to remember if it's your push away bar or your side pull bar.
