... but I've had a Cabrinha kite or two since day one.
In the same boat :) Thanks for the back to back comparison, wife on TT primarily still so that helps. I'll stick to what is familiar and stay with cab.

Re: Boogie board, for a cheep compact foil board?

Have you all seen this? An adhesive foil mount with tracks... $160, but keeps you from having to drill holes in your board - and gives adjustability if you don't drill correctly the first time :)

Re: New mobile game 'Kiteboard Hero' offers realistic kite action

Enjoying it so far but I WISH I could swap the kite control to the right side (thumb). That's my only complaint as a right hander Yeah, controls are a bit funky for me as well... Anyone else wonder if it's too realistic in terms of training? Already have a problem with people having no experience t...

Re: Boogie board, for a cheep compact foil board?

And that's all it takes to float a piece of wood eh? I'll see what I can do That's working well for mine with an alloy foil. The one pictured above is wood core so likely won't require as much flotation from the board. Any tips to finding a good balance point on a random skim board? Or where to get...

Double the thickness of the deck pad, and cover the entire board.

Re: Boogie board, for a cheep compact foil board?

How have you all solved the floatation problem when using skims? In the lakes around MN, late in the season we get some pretty thick weeds and algae that will eat your foil and twice last year they submerged and couldn't be found.

Re: Best Way to Fly with Gear in 2017

If you fly to DR from USA flying into STI has good advantages! I know from MIA it is cheaper plus one checked bag allowed. From MIA no bag for free! And in STI no problem with golf bag... The 1 hr drive thru the mountains is beautiful. Costs is between 80-100 USD one way. Compare ticket prices and ...

Re: Boogie board, for a cheep compact foil board?

I would allow that boogie board. Especially if it has already had a career with your kids. Is it EPS inside a nylon cover or the softer foam like a pool noodle? EPS would be best for glassing. Lots of cheap beach store toy boards would suffice as a decent blank. Could you glass right over the nylon...
