Re: Boots Vs Foot Straps

Cons for boots.......you need a screw driver to do a board-off.

Re: Is the twintip a dying breed?

TT a dying breed? Not a chance. The TT is simply too versatile. Yes, it is the board of choice for beginners. But it's also the board that many experts continue to ride. I'm sure that many dedicated foilboard and directional riders will disagree, but an expert rider can go further and do more on a T...

Re: Ideal kite to start with for the smallest kids?

First question is, what is meant by "smallest kids"? The child's weight is important, of course, but attention span is critical. The key question is, can they listen and follow instructions? A typically sized 10 year old with good listening skills can easily learn to kiteboard, starting with a train...

Re: Ozone chickenloop safety warning issued

I agree, Matteo. It's important to commend Ozone for recognizing the issue and for being proactive in addressing it appropriately. In every industry, there are companies that would not have done so. Kudos, Ozone. :thumb:

Re: Tips for beginners

My approach to a 45 degree launch is to raise the downwind tip of the kite slowly to inflate it quite a bit before it begins to slide. I don't like for my foil to slide along the beach (too many shells and sticks). So I inflate as much as possible with one tip up and the other still held with sand o...

Re: Stem Cell therapy works

This is why the US health system is imploding. Repairs to healthy people doing stupid things, and over treatment. Sorry for rant, but it's true. Hey, TomW. I don't want to take this thread too far off topic but, yes, your are absolutely right in saying that the US health system is a disaster. But I...

Re: Built a balance board

I respectfully disagree. When is better balance a bad thing? Okay. I agree. Theoretically, improved balance is better for all physical activities. But is it a high enough priority in learning to kiteboard (TT, not foilboard) that you'd spend time on a balance board as opposed to spending that time ...

Re: Built a balance board

I agree with jeromeL. A balance board won't be of benefit in learning to kitesurf. I've heard this question from others, and I'm always surprised by it. I'm guessing that balance board manufacturers promote their product as a complement to snowboarding??? With snowboarding, there may be a benefit. B...
