Gear bag and organization... finally have my solution

I have OCD, so I'm always fussing with the setup. I keep my gear in my truck, so moving items from one bag to another, and filling my entire bed with stuff has been a pain.

Seamax electric pump review... I love it

Anyone who is type A is always busy. I'm very type A, so anything effort that allows me more time on the water I'm all for. So I finally decided to buy an electric pump so that I can rig while the kite is being pumped up. Also, I don't need the extra pump work out, I'd rather save the energy for the...

Boot / binding replacement inserts with lots of protection

I have the Ronix One boot, and while they are incredible they aren't known for their durability. Right now, the boot is still holding together but I am looking to replace the inserts / foot liner so that it doesn't hurt ever time I land.

Any recommendations?

Much appreciated

What are the bolt rings , are you talking about the washers on the fin screws?

Use nylon washers, or stainless steel.
