Re: Kite Inflation Tips (Cabrinha Kitesurfing)

Thanks! I'd assume these were for the current crop of Cabrinha kites, as they are on a Cabrinha pump and not other kite makes. 5705252A-D7E3-4F18-A61B-80535473D5D1.png Anyone got a copy of those pressures mentioned on the pump? Thx. Probably a safe assumption, badgb21. But it's hard for me to belie...

Re: Setting Yourself Up?

My question to Mossy is what kind of company? I don't want to preempt Mossy, but I'll chime in with a personal observation. You'll be happier in the long run and probably more successful if you choose a business that you are passionate about. There's more to life than "living the dream" and kiting ...

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

........There was a dispute over royalties. So "boards and more" had to use a different name for their products. The duotone branded products will be from the same team of engineers/designers as before. In the future North Technology group may buy a kite company to re-brand as North or re-license t...

Re: Setting Yourself Up??????

(1) Live below your means.
(2) Start regular savings early in life ("pay yourself first").
(3) Regularly invest your savings in proven companies.

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

"Duotone" will forever remind me of a 1950's doo-wop band (e.g., the Monotones, the Cleftones, the Quin-tones, Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, Kenny Vance and the Planotones, the Deftones (they aren't '50's or doo wop, but still have the name)......). But I know "the Duotones" will produce some great k...

Great videos. Push Kiting guys are crazy good, but I especially like the darkslide and one footer slide on FS Soul video. :thumb:

Re: Flysurfer-specific training?

It's a good question, Gyre. I don't know of any, but I'll be interested in hearing responses from others. Considering the economics, I'm guessing that (1) there isn't enough consumer demand for big foil kite instruction (esp. in N. America) and (2) the cost of equipment to teach on foils is a major ...

Re: Triple S 2018 Videos

I feel bad for the competitors. The wind was cranking on Hatteras Island until just before Triple S. In the videos, there doesn't look like any punch coming off those kickers and ramps. I'm sure it was a good party though. Congratulations to all the riders for enduring. :-?

Re: Busted Rib

I agree with most of this, but do not understand the Raley comment. Surely once you are unhooked the hook height is irrelevant for the trick? Runner1, you are absolutely correct. Once unhooked, the position of the hook doesn't make any difference. So for raley, harness type shouldn't matter beyond ...
