Re: Electric Landboard Kite

Not going to be pretty or cool, if using a big kite it will be like a pullup behind a boat, but instead of getting high when you pull in to power up you get lifted inches off your board and pendulum back for a tumble, if strapped you and the board gets lifted a little and you pendulum back also your...

Re: When will i relax and enjoy my foiling?

Relax on a foil, Its not possible. Plus just relaxing, is boring! Dancing, blasting, pumping, wave riding, get the adrenalin flowing and that is what we are addicted too.

Re: HQ kites are a bad joke

4 kts of wind is not even enough to inflate the kite, let alone fly it unless you know how to fly it. You need to learn in at least 15 kts. Pre inflation will help. Learn to fly before you dis the Manufacturer, HQ does make good kites, your not a good HQ HYDRA flyer, but could be.

Re: Bicep tendonitis - good excercises to do, please?

Massage 3x a day 5-10 minute, use whatever targets the area, rollers, fingers, door nob. 5-10 mins not just a rub. Stay away from NSIADs they prolong healing. Prolotherapy. Stretch if it hurts your doing it right.

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

Depends on the seat harness, mine is form fitting to back, but does not ride up due to leg straps, which is nice when looping. When pulling a deadman Abs work hard ...
