Re: Black Friday Specials

Mackite has what I think is a pretty good deal on foils especially - just ordered the 2018 Ride Engine (Slingshot) H4 batwing for $150, free shipping.

Re: Ride Engine/Slingshot Bat Wing/H4 vs. NF2/H5

So, I got into foiling on the Slingshot NF2 setup which is essentially a H5 wing. I'm loving it, got it rather quick, working on toeside riding mostly now and eventually losing the front strap. I'm looking to just cruise around, play in waves, and want something really carvy and stable. The Ride En...

Re: Ride Engine/Slingshot Bat Wing/H4 vs. NF2/H5

Great comments from both of you, thanks. Hook vs. Strap, I started with just a front hook, but it kept coming undone from leverage. I may go back to it now that I'm up and riding easily as it would be easier to get switching feet while still having something to leverage against on board starts. I'm ...

Re: Apple Watch Band

I have the velcro band and it's awesome, even if the velcro comes undone it still is a big loop and won't just fall off, although I've never had the velcro come undone and I've surfed/kited/lived with it for a few years now. My brother in law has the CarterJet brand NATO style band from amazon (~$2...

I did, but if you notice almost everyone has it on under their wetsuit. I'm kiting mostly not in a wetsuit.

Apple Watch Band

What does everyone use for a band for an Apple Watch while kiting? I'm a little concerned I'm going to lose it and my wife will in turn kill me (anniversary gift). I bought the UAG band based on Surfline's recommendation, it was fine in surf the other day, but today when I was body dragging through ...

Re: Aruba: Last Minute Travel

Yeah, I went in early July, and I needed a 12 (I'm 170 lbs for reference) 2 of the 4 days I kited. The other 2 were solid 7-9m range, but the first day and the last day not so much. Of course, the last day it did pick up. Couple words of advice, stay in the bay at Boca Grandi, I went north on the re...

Sliding Spreader Bar - PU Tube

Has anyone tried putting the sliding rope-style spreader bar inside a PU tube to help reduce wear?
