Re: Near fatality at Hermanus today December 12 2018

Let me disagree. Who knows if the rider in Hermanus would not have passed out if he was wearing helmet and vest... Let me just preempt all the nonsensical arguments about how helmets makes it MORE dangerous. I agree with you Pepp. I think the biggest problem with kiteboarding injuries is that no on...

Someone asked me what masts are compatible with Naish foils. Obviously Naish, but what others mesh with them? Thanks!
You mean the boards? I think Naish use the standard mast track.

There should be a hard quota for riders from last year so that more new riders are supported.
Why? Kiteboarding isn't that big and I do not think the competition would be fun if we watch beginners send their kites.

Re: Pivot vs Enduro

I know how this is going to look since I have ridden the pivots since day 1, but I have had quite a few sessions on the newest Enduro and I could really never figure this kite out. I was constantly getting pulled off the wave, and especially when the kite turned I ended up getting pulled off the wav...

Re: kai lenny at kite beach insta clip

yesterday they went to the Vans surfing competition on the North Shore but by the time they got there the competition was already over. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Well that feeds right into my stereotype of people like that. Plenty of places to learn, but not sure if these people should be kiteboarding.

Re: woo2 vs. Woo3 and why I've recommended upgrading for higher jumps

Hey, I kited a few times with Woo 1 and Woo 3 (optimal placements on the board for both of them) and biggest difference i had was 0,5m higher on Woo 1 :lol: I have to say, usually 0,1-0,2m appart from each other... In conclusions, i get very similar results with both 8) That sounds pretty good. I f...

Re: Red itchy eyes *only* in warm/tropical water (even with goggles), why?

Well having lived in a sunny area for a while and having seen a variety of people including myself getting sunburnt eyes...I'm not making shit up. For me, the suncream is not the problem because I do not get red eyes when wearing proper sunglasses. I do not think it is the water, because going out i...

Re: Naish Slash 2018 vr Naish Slash 2019

I have had my new 2019 Naish Slash 7m out in some ok wind now and as promised, thought I’d post a review.

Re: Red itchy eyes *only* in warm/tropical water (even with goggles), why?

Most of the time its getting sunburned. Are you using decent sunglasses? It could be sun lotion, but probably its the sun.
