Re: What type of skis for kiting?

It depends what surface you plan on being on (ie. Mountain snow or Lake - ice, hard packed) We are on a Lake and use second hand old ski's that we don't mind abusing. All you need is a good edge and bindings that work. Buy a pair of used skis (edges, bindings OK) and boots and your good to go. Also ...

Re: Wing Tips

Re: Ocean Rodeo Soul drysuit size for 193cm x 80kg person?

I am 5'9" 160 lbs and have the L and it is too big on me but I can wear it. I had my son in-law 6'5" 180 lbs use it and it was very slightly short in the arms and legs but OK to use with no issues.

Wing Tips

I have created this Thread for information for Tips/Help with Wingfoiling

Here's my Tip

Re: lighter harness for foiling?

I looked for Jeff Howard's link for the Mountain Climbing Harness conversion but now cannot find it, He just took a mid-priced Climbing harness and added a Carabiner to the front. He said in his video that it worked very well for Foiling. I assume he took it down as his shop doesn't sell Mountain Cl...
