Re: 3rd party liability insurance UK

I just had an email from Safety Tool to say; Due to brexit: "Unfortunately, we can only offer the SafetyTool insurance to policyholders with their main place of residence inside the EU". I've had this for a few years, never claimed though, but have heard good things about them over the years; https:...

Re: Help a big guy pick out a big board for big air

116Kg 50+ bad knee - I've sought the same answer for a number of years. My main board is a C/F Elite 140X42 - Love it! 9m to 13m Had a couple of higher rocker boards for when my knee is bad. I find these to be power-hungry and not engaging enough. I started to ration my time on the water and just s...

Re: Light wind kite

It certainly makes sense to have some bigger kit if that's your typical wind. It'll give you more sessions on the water, which will speed up your learning. I found a bigger board really speeded up my learning with easier water starts and turns. Worth considering deepwater relaunch (and shallow water...

Re: Single strut kite questions...

Hey Fatkiter, I'm a similar stature ;) I agree with the posts above, one strut kite is not ideal, especially in those conditions. Being heavy it can be hard to get advice as IMHO you need to get it from someone about your own weight. I've had way too much kit over the years and have settled on the s...

Re: whistling TT ?!

Years back In windsurfing it was often caused by the back of the fin being too sharp.
Taking some sandpaper to it did the trick.

Re: Globe Kites Trix 2008

One day you may need that kite to be reliable to save you, if in trouble - It's hard enough without using old kit. You'll pi$$ more money on it, trying to fix it, than it's worth. My guess it's like a piece of old lettuce now. If you don't want to stump up for a new kite then try shops like these fo...

Re: Shiny Bronq advice

Was described a Monk on steroids at one time, not sure as never ridden a Monk, but I really liked my Bronq.
A great fit between a stiff flat freeride and an easier going freeride.
If anything, it sailed slightly smaller for it's size, than say a Raptor and it liked power.
