Re: Stomach muscles

A seat harness is likely to help. I had similar trouble when I first started with a waist harness, so tended to alternate with a seat one. I did some light ab work as described by others above. After about 6 months or so I could manage with just the waist and have not had a problem since. Hopefully ...

Re: Foot pad screws?

Did your original have the (orange) fold-over hand tightening system? If so, they can be expensive to replace. A regular bolt as per your link should be fine, though you may need a stainless steel washer to help spread the load. Be sure to measure the thread correctly - too long and it could not tig...

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

When did this forum turn into the pikey scrooge money savers dot com. We've had IKEA bags and polythene bags on another thread, guys that want all the gear, but don't want to spend too much money and now folks worried in case some entity makes too much profit from the glasses that save their eyes. I...

Re: The best bag for kite gear? The blue Ikea bag?

+1 I find the change mat great, just be sure it's wedged in and won't spill in the car. Takes harness, wetsuit and wet shoes fine. The bag looks a bit overkill but may work if you really are short on space; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qofuoou2Ivk I use a North Core changing pad with drawstring. ...

Who does? Other less capital intensive sports are available. I gather running has a relatively low entry cost, as does swimming if you a near some kind of water! And yes I am a beginner. Windsurfer since a long time but left because of logistics... And I am trying to have more than one kite, to cove...
