Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

I have not ridden the latest versions of either of these boards but I have ridden their predecessors- the older less boxy nugget and the airush cypher which was a very similar shape to the Mini monster. Both of these boards will make a great choice for your intended use. The Mini monster will be a b...

Re: World Record 19m / 63ft ! Largest Wave Ever Kitesurfed

What flyboy and dwx have said sums up my thoughts exactly. To criticize this act shows a lack of understanding and appreciation

Good on you Nuno you are truly a legend

Re: World Record 19m / 63ft ! Largest Wave Ever Kitesurfed

I am going to be so brash as to suggest that all the people being critical on this thread are not people who have significant experience in real waves of consequence Sure the simple act of riding along the wave is not highly technical but there are just so many other factors and aspects to the feat ...

Re: Airush Union vs. Ultra

I'm looking to put together an airush quiver 7-9 wave and 12 ultra. Strapless wave riding is my primary focus ( in life :wink: ) I feel like for wave riding in smaller sizes and stronger winds the wave would beat the ultra in fast turning and responsiveness. But in lighter winds the ultra would win ...

Re: Strapless board shape?

That is good advice, rocker, outline, width, length and volume all come into play to effect the way a board rides Generally speaking the flatter wider and less pointy shapes are better for smaller waves and lighter winds, are easier to learn to ride strapless on, will often go upwind better, to are ...

Re: Stranded kitesurfer used Apple watch to call for a ride

I’ve already used mine to find my wife when see aborted our ocean downwinder half way into our run. It was sick to iMessage her and find out what street she was at for pickup. It sure beats kiting with a huge, expensive, cell phone around your neck. Yes using Smart watches and other mobile devices ...

Re: Airush Ultra 9m review

With a foil i think the 9m would get alot more use as where i live here in Perth, western Australia, there is a lot of 12 to 15 knot days that the 9 would be perfect for. I flew the ultra on the airush cleat bar but I wouldn't buy another bar as I am modifying and making my own custom bar with longe...

Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

Okay, I do Brummel splices on sheeting lines, pigtails and kitlines. No stiches and no problems. If I was going to stitch I certainly would not waste the effort doing a Brummel splice. If you are wearing suspenders, why n other with a belt. I think the Brummel is actually, miniscually weaker than a...

Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

Hi guys thanks for the wealth of replies I will just be making the centre line / depower line at the moment and leader lines for. I think I will do the brummel with lock stitching just to be on the safe side and I will definitely be keeping an eye on my gear to monitor the strength/ safety as I am u...
