Re: mystic stealth bar

Hey, Did anyone manage to put duotone's chickenloop through the small loop? With long rope at first it didn't go, but after attaching to the ring, the line stretched and now it is easy to attach. I am not sure if this small one would stretch or should I exchange it for something longer. I originall...

Re: The Future of the Sport?

I just don’t get the decline. In fact, I dont get the disinterest in the first place. Kiting’s always been super niche around here. I’m the only guy out 90% of the time at my favorite ocean spot. It’s a small point break and I’ll frequently see 20 surfers out there waiting 30 minutes for a crappy kn...

Re: Naish Pivot 2020

Great....another proprietary inflation system. Forget your pump at the beach and you are screwed. No one else will have the correct adapter.

Re: Offshore windshift ---> Lost Kite

If you are out kiting and the wind goes offshore, it's almost never 100% offshore. Even being a few degrees from perpendicular side-off, you can easily self rescue 'sail' the kite back to shore. Worst case, it's perfectly perpendicular 100% offshore. You can still 'sail' the kite upwind. You won't m...

Re: Pain at the Elbow - Kiter's Elbow: Treatment & Prevention

I’ve had this on and off for past 8 years or so. Worst thing for mine is stand up paddling and chainsawing. But it flares up with kite sessions where there’s excessive working the kite – such as high winds, small kite, riding toeside (surfboard or foil), where the kite is blasting against one arm. ...

but if its just a smaller safety leash you want you can easily make one better than that from the standard long one.

Re: Extreme Kitesurf Accidents

That's surprising. I would have thought he'd be missing some teeth at minimum. Looked like he ate a few boulders.

What's the deal with the guy who punched out at the edge of the water and got dragged up beach, over rocks, on top of concrete seawall? That was one pissed off kite!

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

I was a Monk guy all the way (owned 5 of them over the years,) but honestly, the Bronq CRB4 is better in every way. It's like a Monk on speed. Every bit as compliant and easy on the knees, but sharper, more precise, faster acceleration and better pop. I know, that sounds like conflicting attributes,...

Re: PSA: CHECK YOUR HARNESS - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

Dual compression straps are the best in my opinion. Spread load over 4 straps on one side instead of two, and if one webbing breaks you still have another webbing holding in place. The old Ride Engine webbing designs were flawed with that one thin webbing to hold down the spreader bar. All the weig...
