Re: fitting boots on a shinn monk ?

What are you talking about? A 42cm width board is exactly the right size for a 82kg rider on a monk. I'm sure I have seen Mr Shinn in the past saying it would work but isn't ideal. You might be able to find it with the search but there's a lot to wade through. If its just an odd occasion thing then ...

Re: Gojoe

My experience is they need to be inflated properly to work properly (flip the board over). If under inflated I found it tended to sit a little slanted on the water and wasn't really that much more visible. The only downsides I noticed when I still used mine were that you were more likely to catch th...

Re: DRYSUIT - Best ways to get into and out of your Drysuit

Avoiding the obvious will see you just fine for getting on and off (avoid anything that might cut or tear the seals - like long fingernails). For me only the heel seals are really tight to get on as obviously your feet are much fatter than your ankles. I try and hook a finger under the entire seal s...

Re: Game changer - Onewheel teaches how to turn on a foil

Ebikes in my location are more expensive than the one wheel but I know what you mean.

Most who want an eBike will build their own to their own spec. It should be possible to buy the hub and then fix up a battery/controller/chassis as you like it. I haven't seen the hub sold anywhere though.

Re: Game changer - Onewheel teaches how to turn on a foil

I revived this thread as I'm seriously considering one... What is the opinion of the owners? Still enthusiastic about it or it has faded out? Where are you based? FM don't officially support outside of the US so if you live outside the US you need to factor in the possibility of having to work out ...

Re: Are You Progressing as a Kiter? 8 Water Checks. How did you fare?

Not sure I agree with point 7 (letting go with one hand). IMHO this is normally a short term 'cheat' used to cover up poor technique rather than something to encourage people to do. Letting go of the bar will in most cases cause the kite to gradually rise to the zenith, which kills the drive of the ...

Re: most durable 2mm gloves

You possibly don't have this shop where you live but I have just bought another pair of these just in case: https://www.aldi.co.uk/neoprene-cycling-gloves/p/084884230467000 My original pair are still going strong after all last winters use. Basically see if a cycling shop has neoprene cycling gloves...

Re: Got my hands on the Quark!

Thanks for posting the footage. The quark looks like it produces really nicely stabilised footage. Really suits the wave riding footage you were capturing there!

Re: Core kites and kiteboarding industry sales this year

Waaaaaayyyyyyy too clean for there to have not been "a talking to" by higher ups. Maybe my efforts have been successful! If this is the best you get, it is still a huge improvement. I'll take personal attacks over drunken blatant bigotry any day. Thanks Core! Umm, maybe I missed it - but why all th...

Re: SmartWatch research questions

If you are a sony engineer. Just remake the SW3 for wearOS and stick a normal strap on it. Best watch ever! I didn't mind the rubber flap - it worked well and being a standard micro usb was easy to find a charger in a bind - unlike the proprietary chargers most watches need. Give me decent waterproo...
