Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

The best sup for kiting would be one with a foil on the bottom :)

I personally think that's safer not using the donkey dick as he's wearing a parachute and can more easily jettison the kite and bar if something breaks.

What? No fireball!? Haha!

Re: First foil trip. Perth-Exmouth 3 weeks starting next week

I foiled around ningaloo when I did a kite trip up to Exmouth. Otherwise I was on my surfboard in most places. Gnarloo is awesome if you get good conditions.

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

It would be even cooler if we could download the design to print at home. From the video it looks twice as expensive to print a nylon ring rather than buy a metal ronstan one from a marine store.
