Re: Apple Watch ultra

Pushing the side button to unlock instead of spinning the crown is a software update, happens on the old watches too now. Not unique to Ultra.

Jeez that board off looked massive...

Did none of the "old guys" make it through?

For anyone that does not want to know the answer, look away.

All three podium finishers were teenagers.

Apex are among the best straps out there, their suggested size range has some cushion because they are so comfy and adjustable. Loved mine until I wore through my Stomp, then switched brands but miss the Apexes.

Giel I think deserves an honorary KOTA trophy at least. Opened up the world to the double loop. At least Ruben won KOTA in 2005, otherwise he would be first on the honorary list.

Re: Kitesurfing journalist looking to talk to

Contact user “Pump me up” as he has a lot to say.

Kiting has a fun culture. Like any technical discipline, there are a lot of trade offs and choices, so there are a lot of opinions. But we all want the same thing, which is fun.

Re: What type of oil to use in kite pump?

EDIT: See edit below. Original post left unaltered, info added to bottom. Use lithium grease. With all respect to Topaz and his experience, do not use WD40. Also recommend avoiding silicone lubricant. Dry carbon lube is also not recommended. The modern pumps are basically all made in the same factor...
