Re: ISAF Selects Kiteboarding For Rio 2016

This is exciting news! Yet it is unfair, especially for Israelis: "Windsurfing is one of Israel's most successful Olympic sports, having yielded three out of its seven medals, including its only gold , and a number of Israelis have featured highly at world and European championships over the years."...

Re: Russians have passed Bering strait on kites

most overhyped bunch of nothing. easy if you're a rich spoiled brat with a bunch of money to waste. calling it difficult and extreme is a joke. I assume you can't read in Russian from here http://www.ntv.ru/novosti/233343/ , so here is some info for you: 7 hours non-stop riding in +1C water & +5C a...

Twin tip boards last MUCH longer than 3 seasons, and people might mistakenly expect this from Mako, too. Thanks for clearing this up.

Re: help! fixing completely delaminated OR mako

Really sorry for your loss - it doesn't look it is repairable...
yeah putting that together might be tough but might as well try. board is 4 years old.
There we go, think about it positively - 4 years is a long time for Makos. Mine delaminted after 18 months...

Re: Quitting Kiting

I've been kiting all of 8 years now, started on land and had some pretty hairy experiences, it makes me laugh to hear kitesurfers talk about how unsafe land is when actually even inland it's just as manageable as kitesurfing, you just need to be a better kiter. Kitesurfers never have to deal with i...

Re: surfy feel on a twin tip

This is the first I've ever heard of delamination issues and there have been TONS of Mako reviews on kiteforum. That's strange. This is a very well known issue, here are some links with pictures: http://oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/2365/ and http://oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/2135/ From th...

Re: surfy feel on a twin tip

I also highly recommend Mako, but 1) make sure to get 2011 model. Makos from previous years could easily delaminate, and Ocean Rodeo warranty covers only the first year. 2) Mako King is as close to a surfboard as it gets. It is much better than Mako 150 when you plan to transition to a surfboard. Ma...

Re: Which kite sells for a Premium on the second hand market

I agree with the supply and demand theory, it perfectly explains why 2nd hand Nemesis HP V2 sells for a premium: BEST does not make HP V2 anymore, does not offer anything similar, and no other brand makes anything similar either - so the supply is limited to the 2nd hand market only. With so little ...

Re: Which kite sells for a Premium on the second hand market

Of course no need to pick up that 2nd hand HP unless you want to, because the new HP v3 is here, and it's every bit the kite that v2 riders want. Nemesis HP V2 has proved to be the perfect kite BEST has ever designed, and many riders requested to bring it back. Now it's back :thumb: Riders wanted V...

Sony new compact cameras and promotion videos

I was browsing recently announced Sony's new compact cameras for 2011: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentDisplayView?cmsId=ces2011_digital_Imaging&catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1#/cyberShotTabData Most of them will have 1080i video, and TX10 is waterproof.
