The problem I have with pulleys is the wear on the bridal.. I have to replace my pulley lines twice a year...I launch-land on a sticky sand beach so always have sand in the pulleys...Its just somethiong more to go wrong......

Re: Sliding Foot Strap for waveriding

Feel the board with the bottom of your feet and keep the kite lower than for a twintip......With the kite lower it glues you on the board....Ride the surfboard and make the kite keep you glued on it....

Kite position is everything strapless.....

Re: KSP Peru Pacasmayo Pro Day 6

The contest is based on surf style and not tricks.... Tricks and aerials are ok to watch sometimes, but i personally would not watch a freestyle contest...

Someone else can probably explain the judging criteria better....

Good job KSP, I support you 100%......

Re: Problems with Slingshot Compstick bar

Lots of slingy riders here in gulf coast texas and all have had the same problems... The plastic butter box breaks when you release trim fast and it hits the plastic... You bleed when you get your finger in the way... The swivel is worthless, once you get sand in it you can never get it out... And i...

Re: Lose the straps....

The few times ive tried riding w/ straps, i have found myself riding it like a twintip.... Lost all the surf feeling... Couldn't ride toeside for shit, couldn't get my feet where I wanted them... I could see maybe a front strap if its really gnarly....
