Re: Anyone replace their Ride Engine rope slider yet?

I recommend using two (2) 1"ID stainless steel round rings. Works waaaay better than just one. Using only one ring puts too much stress on both the rope and even more so on the CL - don't do it! Two rings slide much easier on the rope. Not seeing any wear on either CL or rope.

Re: How Kiteboarding Became the New Golf

Re: Ocean Rodeo Big Pump - Now Shipping

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this appears to be exactly the same as the new Core pump (and several others). No doubt all made in the same Chinese factory.

I've used the Core pump and it is very nice! I plan to buy one (of whatever brand name).

Re: North kiteboarding - bar

Okay, after reading the prior posts and as a self-proclaimed curmudgeon totally happy with his 2015 NKB Quad bar - I'm planning to order some more 2015 NKB bars before they're out-of-stock/discontinued and replaced with this new-fangled "latest/greatest" version. Don't need it - don't want it. I jus...

FYI - Apparently SS's new 2016 Sentinel bar uses a magnet - haven't seen it but that's what I'm told.

Re: Permits needed , to kite board Lake Mohave

I'm sure when some gov bureaucrat realized that the wind is free and people are making use of it they decided to put a stop to it - after all, there's "no free lunch" - right? Only a matter of time before all wind-users on the planet are taxed for their wind usage! Re the permit - exactly what is th...
