Re: How long is your drive to the Kiting Spot, how long is your Session, how exhausted are you after the session

67miles from my "local" beach & usually can get there in under 60mins, providing I leave early to miss the traffic, obviously never exceeding 70mph... your honour. I kite for between 2-4 hours & find that after a hot green/ginger tea, I feel fine - abs used to feel like they'd had a workout, but sin...

Re: 2021/2020 Harnesses - Hardshells

As noted, the Mystic Stealth is a very different fit to anything else I have ever used. It is a nicely put together harness, with good construction & very innovative in the use of the neoprene padding that doesn't take on water. Sadly for me, I have used mine twice in powered conditions - 25-30 knot...

Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations

A few years back, I thought a TI divers knife, one side straight, the other side serrated in a decent sheath with lanyards would be a good idea... the upside was that it would slice through anything, including my leg when it popped out of the sheath! DOH. Any knife is likely to do more harm than goo...
