Re: Looking for someone to look at a foil package before I buy

"Family and Friends" or "Gift" hasn't been an option here for years. Apparently, you have no protection if you send money that way so why would you? Negotiate the fees if that bothers you...

Re: Choosing between Two Slingshot Foil boards

The cumbersome bulkyness does suck, but that size & volume can be quite helpful when learning foot-changes. I believe the later AA versions are smaller vs the original. I learned surface changes on my original LF Fun Fish -- very little volume. Need power in the kite to keep up the board speed, reg...

Re: Clamcleat, how to do?

Can get ones like the original pic form eBay too, like $15 last I looked.

Why not go for an adjustable one like the old North/Switch bars? When Switch sold that part, it was like $7 or something.

Re: Choosing between Two Slingshot Foil boards

DC. AA is too big even for me. Even though they are the same length, the thickness makes that much difference? I think it's just wider but has more volume and bulk. It's overly cumbersome and you don't get enough of a benefit to outweigh that. The 4'6" DC is a nice freeride and smaller kite foil (w...

Re: Tips for travelling with kite equipment - how do you pack?

It all depends on how much hassle you can be bothered with re. multiple bags, fighting with luggage limits, paying excess fees... For the past few years, seems I've been traveling with 3 kites, 2 bars, 2 boards, 2 harnesses, pump, helmet, wetsuit :o TT and either a directional or foil board, used to...

A 12m Cabrinha switchblade with 6m line extensions will get you going in almost nothing. (30m lines in total)
Pretty sure Cab lines are 20 or 22m but their website is down atm :o

Re: Thank you Lou Wainman

Nice :) It was a Corey Roesler pic on water skis that got me gong. When did you start? Had a three-day course around 2003, but decided it'd be better learning to landboard first because I thought it's be easier, I'd have easier access to parks here and the beach was hours away. Wrong. :D The parks ...
