Re: Naish Repair Hack

So there is a slow leak when the top screw lid is closed? Or when it is open? Did you try to just blow little on it in case there is sand stuck down there? Top The leak was from between the valve seat and the main screw (not the top screw-lid which was closed). Admittedly I did not attempt to blow ...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Hey Chirojoseph, My last kite session I had the same problem with my Naish 12M Pivot. I did the bubble test this morning and found the same thing you did, a very slow leak at the main inflation valve. Could you kindly expand on how you resolved the issue? I am hesitant "rip apart" anything. Your exp...

Re: Windy + All-inclusive resort + August + Carrib or Mexico

Hi There dchatzis, It's been a couple of years so my memory is hazy and I couldn't find any of my notes from that trip. I'm fairly certain that it was Kite Boarding Jamaica. Here is a link: http://kiteboardingjamaica.com/Kiteboarding_Jamaica/Location.html I recall it is run by a German lady who is a...

Re: tuftlite 6.6 soulfish for strapless surfing

7 years later…and I found this thread regarding kiting with a Randy French Soulfish. I bump this back to present day as I have been riding my 6’6” RF Soulfish as a kiteboard. I had originally bought the board new (13 years ago?) as a shortboard for (regular) surfing when I didn’t want to longboard. ...

DIY short surfboard leash\tail?

I'm looking for suggestions... When riding my surfboard in waves and losing my board, I get to the beach pick up my board and head back to the water. In higher winds sometimes it's convenient to hold the very small loop of line that is in the leash plug at the tail of the board. When I used this boa...

Re: dynamic differences with seat and waist harness

...in a nutshell, a waist harness can be tough on the ribs, a waist harness tough on the...um.. nuts.

Re: Nosaro Costa Rica Beta

+ Nosara has some fun surf, but no kiting.
Check out the Harmony Hotel.
If you like coffee, jam as much in your luggage as you can and take it home. Outstanding stuff!

Re: What size kite for maui?

Anyone have thoughts on the down side of renting gear on Maui? I am headed out next month (first time there) and found a company that rents gear. I am looking at only taking my harness. They said I can switch kites and boards as needed.

Re: Belize Ambergris Caye - Info Please

Hey Don, I was there in May 2016, for a week. Although I didnt kite, it was on my mind as there was decent winds half of the days we were there. I would think a foil would be perfect...just be careful of shallow reefs. We traveled by boat most of our trip and I did see a kiter up from where you are ...

IF so, is it a good grip? Is it easy to remove if I decide to go with a traction pad option? Thanks fo...
