Re: Nice Carving Pictures - post them!

Thought I’d post a couple since I rarely ride my twin tip hardly ever anymore, just been foiling 90% last 5 years so, but gotta admit was fun going back to the roots of kiteboarding!

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

RainX is superb but I would not use it on glasses that have expensive lens treatments such as AR or oleophobic surface e.g. Crizal etc. But if it’s a cheap pair of sunglasses or RX with CR39 lenses then RainX is great. Tried rain X not that great results for me really perhaps it was my lenses not b...

We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we? by IKO How curious is the fact that despite science and logic, sometimes us humans behave against what we instinctively know is beneficial for us; like eating clean and healthy, wearing a helmet whi...

Re: What are the world's best hydrofoil travel destinations?

Along the coast of Brazil. Great winds, warm. Eg Cumbuco gets deep quickly (besides the main spot which is packed anyway). Waves not that great. But along the coast you will find several spots with waves. Eg Taiba gets sweet waves and is also deep. Best waves November til March, wind for foiling is...

Re: naish ride

any thoughts on if a 9m would be good for foiling, 2014 one going secondhand going locally to me? thanks Havent ridden it, but based on the reviews and its size, I would say "Go for it" :thumb: Fast turning, and lighter than most Naish kites, and that is perfect for a 9 m2 on a foil. 8) PF I use a ...

Re: Ultimate freestyle/wave foil - Moses 633 vs. Lift 150 (long-term)

You should have a go in the 170 a step up in performance from the 150, as IMO best wing out there for waves and free ride, tried many and had the moses too very nice build quality for the moses must say, but ended up selling in favor of 170 and 36"&32" mast depending on conditions, I also sold my 1...

Re: Weed now legal in South Africa

Legalization is fine with me. But I prefer not have stoned kiters on the water when I'm kiting, or stoned drivers on the road when I'm driving. :o Bei sure the ones that want to be stoned during a session are already stoned.
