Re: The sad decline of aging pro kiteboarders

Let me add, that yes, we all do it for the love of the sport. But, riders from poor countries do have the goal to make money with it as well...Brazilians, Dominicans etc. Even if not much money, it means much more value to them than any European etc rider. Pretty sure a rider like Andy Yates never ...

Re: The sad decline of aging pro kiteboarders

Reminds me of college athletes.....Would be good for them to unionize...get a pension ....or something from the kite industry.... From where? Most of the industry doesn't make any money.

Re: Vacation warriors - a new breed emerges and it scares the crap outta me

I in part blame that on the equipment manufacturers who for the love of god seem to think that a highly visible and standardized red on the left side of the bar cramps their graphics style. Anyone who needs color indication for telling apart right from left should not kite. You should know what pos...

Re: Vacation warriors - a new breed emerges and it scares the crap outta me

Back in the day, we would notice someone who needs help. One of us would go over and talk with the person and figure out what level they are at. Give them some advice, help them out, get them on the water, and keep an eye out for them. or convince them to wait until another safer day. Eventually th...

Re: 5th line low V convert to high V (North)

Watch our for wear tho.

Re: Safety went off after minor crash.

No cutting was needed at the kite end.

Re: Click bar, small problem, check yours.

I do not own one but I really like the clean design of click bar. Without a click mechanism a perfect bar would be an iron heart relese with core plastic covered depower lines with unspinning mechanism and ozone/slingshot lines ;) But at the moment the cleanest design is click.
