Re: Boots Vs Foot Straps

I really don't understand where the "boots don't go upwind as well as straps" thing came from, I hear it all the time. It's exactly the same...

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

Personal preference really. I ride Hyperlite systems and I love them. If I was to rock traditional boots I would probably go with the KTV/Shredtowns or a velcro binding. I really do not like laces. Too much of a pain when kiting and wake-boarding for me. yeah, i regret getting laces too, such a pai...

Re: Eleveight kites

Is it just me or it looks like the bar was meant to be adjustable in width, but at the last moment somebody decided that making bars of different widths sells twice as many bars? :angryfire: IMG_5753.jpg img_5753_35522190953_o.jpg Wow, yeah looks exactly like every other barend that you can move th...

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

i definitely noticed a difference when i switched from older LF boots to ronix ones. board felt much more lively and playful since everything is lightened up. like most things in kiting though its mostly technique... some people like the extra swing weight

Re: Safest Control Bar

Yeah let's invent an automatic QR...as the bar goes away from your hands ( you gotta let it go anyway during danger) it pulls with a line the quick release and opens up the chicken loop 2 seconds will be saved...less chances of getting hurt or worse You two should start working on that design Yeah ...

Re: Safest Control Bar

Let's brainstorm...someone come up with a bar design that does not require activation of QR by hand to open the chicken loop out of hook...a design that is automatic..when bar is let go Can you imagine if the cars we drive had a button to "push" by hand to activate the airbag to inflate in a danger...

Re: Drinking is important!

I believe it... now that foils are letting me kite in the summer, I'm really feeling the full brunt of Florida heat. I actually had to stop riding the other day after about a half hour because I was sweating too much while riding, and the ocean wasn't cooling me off at all. Crazy to think you can ov...

Re: Is the twintip a dying breed?

foiling has sort of revolutionized kiting in south florida imo because the wind is usually pretty lame. we had 10 foilers out at once last weekend, which was kind of mindblowing to me -- you wouldn't have seen that a year ago, there were only maybe 3 people total that owned them that said, everyone ...
