Re: How often do you power/depower (Trim) your kite during a session?

I think Jeff Howard with Kiteboarding.com explains how to properly use the trim adjustment and why it is needed if you ride in gusty winds in this you tube video.

Re: Lou wainman quits wainman Hawaii

Back in 1999 or 2000 he and Lou Wainman were going to be in Corpus Christi and they invited several pro wakeboarders to learn how to kiteboard. Shannon Best was one of thos...

Re: Spreader Bar Failure

I was just looking at my spreader bar and harness, an older T3 DaKine, could the problem be that on the newer harness's the spreader bar is so locked down that the hook is under more stress? I can never get mine that tight even with the bar pad there is always some slack and that allows the bar pivo...

Re: South Padre Island questions?

You might also look at Corpus Christi. They don't get the same crowd as South Padre and they have some really good places to kite. Checkout the local shop in Corpus Christi at www.kiteboarding.com they list all of the best spots and what the ability levels are at each spot.

Re: Who is your favourite Old School Rider?

Personally I like where the sport is now, those 2 line kites sucked! It was way too much of an adventure everytime you went out. Forget about staying upwind, one big gust and your hopelessly being pulled downwind. That is why I have so much respect for the original pioneers of the sport. Now there a...
