Re: OBX nasty water warning

..... Did you cut yourself in the water? Did you have a previous injury/open wound/sore? ..... I'm guessing that a cut or open wound is the culprit. The Neuse River Basin empties into the Pamlico Sound. There is always a lot of contamination coming out of the Neuse River Basin, but it's been compou...

Re: PSA: CHECK YOUR HARNESS - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

Hey, Lindsey. Sorry to hear about your friend. This is a good reminder to check all gear periodically. Thanks for that. I've had harness straps and spreader bar hooks break at the peak of a boost, but I've always managed to "crash gently". If a strap breaks on one side, you're usually supported by t...

Hurricane Michael

The devastation from this storm, particularly in the Florida Panhandle, is staggering. For those not accustomed to dealing with hurricanes, this one's destructive impact ranks at or beyond the levels of Hurricanes Katrina (New Orleans), Andrew (South Florida), and Maria (Puerto Rico). I know all the...

Re: Kitesurfing steering lines shorter than power lines

I just attached them to a tree and pulled hard. I don’t know how it happened I believe that when I got it was like that but I was a total beginner It's hard to believe a hard pull would eliminate a 4 inch line discrepancy. Based on the first photo (showing the 4 inch difference), I would have recom...

Re: flying a foil kite- tips needed

"4:1 race style depower" Racers like it because its easier to set the trim exactly right. If you are trimming a lot especially while riding powered, the forces are less. If you are more inclined to set it and forget it, then 4:1 is not going to do much for you. Is a bar modified to achieve 4:1 depo...
