Re: Gopro helmet mount fitting?

I have used the stock GoPro pads for ten years on helmet mounts with good performance. Make SURE you follow all the instructions. Also, tie a leash to your camera, secured to the helmet.

Re: How to prevent rotation jumping from wave

Pick your ramping waves more carefully, be selective. When you come off the wave, look where you want to go. Or, in the opposite direction to try to reduce over-rotation.

Re: Boom! Cabrinha has been sold!

I changed over years ago when the Fireball came out myself. It is a great system, been using it ever since that time.

I personally love fireball and it is a shame more have not tried it. Once you try it you can feel the difference. Won't go back to the chi loop.

Re: Naples Florida access

Hi. I'm heading to Naples next week and plan on bringing kites and a foil. I want to respect the local rules, written and unwritten. I'm experienced and like to immediately get far away from shore (not a show off). What's the deal with access? Any help is appreciated. I will have several Flysurfer ...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

I have been playing around with the GoPro MAX with some interesting results.

Re: Kite Snorkeling - lets talk about it!

With my normal kiting rig out, getting to a measly 10 feet took a great deal of work. I have been looking for gear lost from the capsized dive boat when I saw a regulator on the bottom which I had to pick up to take back to the people. I’m used to dropping down free diving routinely to 70 to 110 fee...

Re: Kite Snorkeling - lets talk about it!

Just getting down to 10 ft. was a major pain in the butt. If you rigged for it, no flotation, sources of excess drag, used long lines, perhaps even used a hand plane to aid diving in adequate wind, it might work out. Trolling on the surface is easy, diving for depth harder to do. I have tried it a f...
