Re: Best Lightweight Versatile Surfboard

If lightweight and inexpensive is a significant part of the equation then regular surfboards at garage sales or classifieds, you can get three or four different ones for the price of one new kitesurfboard... Foot straps- drill and resin in your own inserts or use the stick down kind. Granted you wil...

Re: Blade Kites

I had a 9m trigger for a while and liked it but it got abused snow kiting and mated with some trees eventually so I didn’t have it very long. Anyway I would say build quality and flight is good. I can almost guarantee it would be significantly lighter in weight than the “equivalent” North. In a good...

Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

I will add that for land and snow the wind quality is going to suck in some locations such as in mountains or around any trees at all. As in gusting from 0 to 30 haha. So look for a kite with tons of range and easy sheet out depower. Such as deltas from the 2012 end of your scale like Rally, Kahoona...

Re: First travel trip with kitegear

Dont forget you get a carry-on AND a backpack on most airlines. Another kite or your wetsuit or whatever can go in that backpack.

Re: strutless

RRD emotion 17m strutless : Pretty much as Peter said. Pros- awesome drift, responsive to steering, overall great feel and handling in the low to medium windrange. Pumping/ packing convenience at this size is A+ Cons- The high end is not so good. Flutters when depowered a lot in stronger wind and th...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Coal mining looks like child's play compared to Lithium, Cobalt, Nickel, graphite mining. Clearly you have no clue! The broad scope of coal mining worldwide to continually feed every coal fired power plant very, very easily envelops all these types of mines you mention many many many times over. Ex...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

I think I will jump into the fray here. Imagine how a coal plant operates. Build the frigin thing and maintain it, stuff it full of fuel and burn the hell out of it, then you need more. Go mining. Stuff it full of fuel. Oh dang we need more already, ..go mine it... And these are no puny mines. Whol...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Btw, next time you are hitting the slopes in CO, look around, and take note that in many parts of the state the trees are dead. Like all dead.

Ask someone there why that is.
