Re: Diversity in the Kiteboarding community

If you want a genuine answer, start by getting everyone into swimming at a young age. Without a swimming culture you aren't going to persuade people to partake in watersports as you need to feel comfortable in the water. Agree. In So. Cal., it's very diverse. Yet, surfing is dominated by white male...

Re: 2018 11m Naish Pivot design/manufacturing flaw?

Just learned my friend’s kites were 2017. I was also under the impression that it was a manufacturing defect with a batch of kites and not a design defect. I was really surprised when my friend said they were going to replace his kite after 2 years(purchased in 2018). Don't think I've ever seen that...

Re: 2018 11m Naish Pivot design/manufacturing flaw?

Hi TommyDuotone - What do you mean by "Naish helped them out" ? Did they replace the kites or repair ? They repaired the kite of the newer Pivot( took a while though). The older kite is being replaced by a new one(just happened 2 weeks ago). I would like to add however, that both kites exploded whi...

Re: 2018 11m Naish Pivot design/manufacturing flaw?

There are two riders at my local beach that use the Pivots. Both had the same issue. They both have the Gray color scheme w/blue in 14m size(not sure the year). One of the guys had it happen while the kite was still fairly new, while the other guy had it happen after 2 years of use. In both instance...

Re: Surf kiteboard favorites

After trying numerous boards over the last 10 years, my favorites have been the Firewire FST stock surfboards with modifications to the deck. A local repair shop in San Diego(Joe Roper's) modifies them with an extra 4 or 6 ounce glass added to the deck plus an additional 4 or 6 ounce patch where you...

Huh, who died and left you in charge of deciding who’s deserving?
Not a guy who wants to buck the system at the expense of legitimate people trying to seek asylum or collect welfare for that matter.

How about contributing instead milking the system. Sounds like you want to take a refugee spot away from a much more deserving person.
Good on you and Bragnouff for being the only ones to speak up.

Re: Kite.quiver

Looks like you've been pretty active on this forum lately looking for advice on building a quiver with a compatible bar(s). Well, you came to right place for advice. It would be more useful however, if you listed your weight, where you plan to ride(waves, chop, flat, snow, ect...), and what your pri...
