Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Duotone is an awful name. Ughh. True would’ve been much better. I guess I’ll be foiling on Duo Monos now

Re: Are there foot hooks that don't %*-"@! break?

NSI needs to use a higher grade plastic IMO.

Re: Leash wrapped around harness hook

I connect my leash to the front using a custom 30cm leash extender made of an old Naish sheeter rope. The length of the rope that could get wrapped around the hook is covered in layers and layers of duct tape which stiffens it and makes it impossible to wrap around the harness hook. Also if i do nee...

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

As a kiter who loves to travel to spots around the world I’m really starting to think about the impact this has on the planet. For example, the amount of carbon produced to fly across the Atlantic is more than my hybrid electric car produces in a year of driving. This can be offset by purchasing hab...

My doctor (who also works on the Seahawks) says he’s seen improvements in 75% of patients two years on after treatment. Can any doctors weigh in ...

Snowkiting options in Bend, Oregon

Thinking about moving to Bend, Oregon. Are there snowkiting locations nearby? I know in summer, the Gorge is about 2.5 hours away for water kiting.

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

I'll chime in. I've had to back off wakestyle and move to airstyle tricks because I injured my shoulder last fall (rotator cuff). So now I'm all about progressing with board offs, etc which was unthinkable pre-injury. Instead of a kite that's great for load pop I now like to ride kites that go huge ...
