Re: Best foostrap/pads nowadays?

I'm using the Nobile ratchet pads. They look like the same ones as the Shinn Sneakers just different color. They are super comfy.

Re: 3D printed fiberglass covered wings taking in water

I actually made the same wing but laminated it with carbon. I have not tried using it but I'll submerge it and test to see if it gets some water in the core.

Re: 3D printed fiberglass covered wings taking in water

Are you sure it is the trailing edge? I am thinking it might be leaking in thru your bolt holes. If you did not do a solid infill on them or fill them before laminating them.

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2021

Pumpy, do you think inflatable Aluula LE kites will finally replace foil kites on the snow? How about in racing - will the performance edge of foil kites finally be matched with an Aluula inflatable? Once we get Aluula canopy fabric, do you think Aluula foil kites will come onto the market, removin...

Re: Dealing with a real world death loop in 30 knot conditions

Its hard to train yourself to do it because we all ways think we can fix the problem. You have to flat ASAP once the kite starts looping. If you wait chances are the kite will not flag out from too much twisting of the lines. Then if that does not fix it you have to fully release the kite. Chances a...

Re: Heel Straps

If you want to be locked in then wear boots. Heal straps are not worth it. Like others have said you don't really need them. They are more of a pain to deal with than they are worth. Tried them years ago and quickly got rid of them.

Re: Carbon vs Wood made boards

If your going to go with boots then I would go with a glass board. Your going to want the flex for the hard landings.

Personally I stick to glass boards. Carbon costs so much and boards are all ready getting close to 1k for a normal setup. Some carbon boards are way past that price all ready.

Re: Refurbish OR Soul drysuit

Refurbish for now. You probably will not be able to get a new one. Our local shop was told April before OR can even get them made. I was going to replace mine this year as well. Just have to wait now.

Re: Duotone Entity broke...

I had the same problem with the Slingshot Duelies. I kept breaking the plastic where it comes thru the bottom of the pads. I would get about 8 months on them but frustrating none the less.

Re: Impact Vests in 2020/21 - A focus on rib protection

I actually used a Liquid Force vest for cable for years. I all ways take the lower back foam out. I have looked at a lot of vests that I could turn into decent kite vests. Flotation is the big thing for me. I had a pec tear 2 years ago and a bicep rupture last year both happened while wake-boarding...
