Re: Ice Kiteboard

oh I like those ropes! I added some elastic to them so they don't droop. I was using a little bit of wood for stoppers. ps to solve the grip problem I adjusted the mounting angle of the iceblades (instead of 45 degrees I mount them at 15 or 20 degrees).

Re: Sand / water / aqua socks to wear inside boots

Just talked with a friend who has the shredtown boots. he is giving them up. They are almost impossible to put on in the water because of how stiff they are (no different from hyperlite there in difficult for putting on in the water). Secondly while I guess they seem great at the wakepark while kite...

Re: board - how to MacGyver connection?

Seems like an adapter plate is your best bet. Take a piece of 1/4 inch aluminum, drill two sets of holes, one with the small mounting size and one with the larger holes, fix the various bolts so that everything works. One set of bolts will go into the board, another set of bolts will face out from t...

Re: board - how to MacGyver connection?

Right so you keep the carbon mast, but use a different mounting plate, an aluminum mounting plate which you then modify by drilling holes. It's not all one piece right? I assume you have a carbon mast, carbon wing and a carbon mounting plate which you can take off?

Re: board - how to MacGyver connection?

Why can't you buy a standard 90mm aluminum mast and just drill some holes in the new mast that fit your current mounting holes?

Re: Sand / water / aqua socks to wear inside boots

friend of mine has shredtowns when I get a chance I'll take a look at it see if it's durable. It's supposed to be used walking around in gravel and such so . . . .

Re: Sand / water / aqua socks to wear inside boots

None of those shoes will work. Any kind of five finger toe shoes or neoprene booties that might fit into straps are far too thick and won't fit in boots. Your boots have to be tight enough that your foot doesn't move around in it. Like Slim I will use 2mm (1.5mm is better) neoprene socks when it get...

Re: at 57°F (14°C) water temperature you would choose 5/4 or 4/3 wetsuit?

57F is shorty for me and 5/4 for others. Everyone is different. Until you face that temp you don't know.
