Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

I have personal experience with Woo and the Xsenr Sessions app on Apple Watch. While the Woo software is more polished and the social following is larger, for my money the Apple Watch wins hands down. The watch just does so much more beyond measuring jumps, and it has GPS tracking. Woo literally ju...

Mystic Vulcanic Drysuit

So I always wanted to give a neoprene drysuit(mystic volcanic) a try so I picked one up this fall and love it. I have used it about 15 times this winter and it is insanely warm, easy to get in and out of, and doesn't feel heavy at all. I went with the Mystic because of the front zipper. I still love...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

Larger volume will plane sooner without question because it has more float , but low volume is more manageable once planning. Again, this is the misconception that almost all windsurfers carry over to kiteboarding. But even in windsurfing, volume over anything that floats with just a bit of freeboa...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

I think it all plays a role, volume, planning surface and rocker. My last windsurfing board was Only 115 volume which is mid volume, most light wind boards have much more volume around 150ltr. My 115ltr was super wide ,which gave it lots of planning surface and it would get up on plane almost as fas...

Re: What to inspect when buying a used kite?

Ebay can work well. Just make sure the seller has a solid history close to 100%. Don't buy from anyone with less than 10 or so reviews , the more the better. If buying direct from seller, I agree to make sure you have some phone conversations with seller, it is more risky but I have bought this way ...

Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

Any photos? I was thinking of adding a center fin to my Shinn King GEE [/quote] ok. I will post some photos.. I tried that fin on every old board I have/had and it improves everything! Can you sell your old boards with that middle fin (after you drilled the 2 wholes which is super easy). Yes! I was...

Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

The thing about doors is that despite being able to go incredibly early, It's always a door! Glassing along.... on a door. They carve.... like a door. The take off and land.... like a door. They surf like a door. A door is just never great. that says it all. Thanks for that! I have been using twint...

Re: Which 2018 North Kite should I buy??

Once you realize how much easier and enjoyable kites are in the wave you will say goodbye to the WS gear. I thought the same thing five years ago, sold all my WS gear last year after collecting 5 years of dust. WS is great and I enjoyed it very much for years , but the freedom and silence of kites i...
