Re: When to switch to a waist harness

FYI; a sudden upward force when jumping has the same effect on your body as a sudden force when deploying a parachute. About the "can't spend several minutes airborne" argument. During one day of kiting, yes, I spend several minutes suspended. I'm not "for" or "against" any type of harness. I use b...

Re: When to switch to a waist harness

LOL Loco, great pun! Now see, boardshorts harnesses are ok. Its the ones that look like a diaper that's already been... filled, that look bad. Now as to kiteboarding being the only sport where a rider is suspended without something to sit on... Kiteboarders don't spend the entire session suspended. ...

Re: When to switch to a waist harness

True, I forgot how hard core you guys are wearing only waist harnesses... :) It's not so much about being core, its about not looking like you are wearing a pre-loaded diaper. Plus, I think there are practical reasons. Many have commented that seat harnesses have low-set hooks. I prefer the hook to...

Re: When to switch to a waist harness

Man, if I was going to go with a seat harness, I would sure as hell go for the boardshorts version. I know it's uninformed and vain, but every time I see someone waddling around in a seat harness, the word "diaper" always is the first thought in my mind. Then, because I am imaginative and sick, my m...

Re: Dyno Kite size

Sure, make sense to get another board, but he said himself: Since these things are awfully expensive, I need some other ideas because I am only buying one kite. and With 7, 9, & 12 rebels it seams logical to go with a 15 Dyno.

You crazy ass nutter!! Pissed myself laughing at the lobster opening scene and indeed the most famous line in this vid is... O' oh! :D :D No, the best line in the vid is at 2:14 "So you can do things like... *beep*" :lol: The shooting through the tall grass like a snake is pretty funny too.

Re: Laying out lines: Upwind or Downwind?

Flight time if ya ever in this part of the world drop me a line bud and I will show ya around. Although when I had Yankee visitors my only stipulation is they sit and watch the castle (an Aussie classic) while eating lamb chips and drinking Aussie beer and if they don't fid it funny then I don't ta...

Re: Maybe I'm up too late, but I just noticed D's Epic Crash

Well I guess I've to work on the EPIC CRASHES part #2, #3, #4, #5, #6…... :roll: But in the mean while have fun with this one. Yeah, ouch. You sure had a good amount of forward speed on that one.
