Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

But given there are $1 safety glasses that many of us have proven to work well,......well, the cheapest option is also more than adequate. Warning: Do not try on a pair of high quality lenses sunglasses with backside anti-reflective for kiting with Hydro and Oleo tech in them It's a highly addictiv...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

No kiter "needs" a $200 pair of sunglasses for out on the water when $1 sunglasses work almost as well. $200 is nothing for an important piece of equipment Look at the price of a new Ride Engine 2019 harness Elite carbon....from $358 to $418 Even other brands lower priced 2019 harnesses are around ...

I am amazed how much people are willing to pay for something that costs cents to manufacture...
Whatever it retails for... divide by 4 ...and that will be about how much the complete pair of sunglasses cost to make
So ....many many many many cents
Just my 2 cents

Re: Kiteboarding Line Hack: Get on the Water Faster

I’ve done this in the past with my foil kites on land and snow, so I’m wondering if you get more sand in with the kite when you pack it up and does the bar end up in or outside the pack? Bar ends up clean laying on top of folded kite....then folded kite and bar on top.. goes in the bag...just leave...

Re: Kiteboarding Line Hack: Get on the Water Faster

If the goal is to get on the water faster then don't take your lines off your kites Leave them all on Been doing that way for 20 years The only time i put lines on is when i get a kite....and a bar to go with it All my LEI kites are set-up that way....all tuned individually When i sell a kite it is ...

Lenses for the Surge and Zeiss lenses for the Typhoon are also shatterproof.
Does the lenses for the more expensive Typhoon have backside anti-reflective ?

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

In my opinion, the Zeiss lenses on the Typhoon model are worth the extra $100. When you put them on next to pretty much anything else, you can really see the difference in clarity, sharpness. The hydrophobic/oleophobic coatings have been really nice. I have to clean these SO much less than anything...

Re: Serious accident at Mirlo Beach yesterday

There was also a very serious altercation between a windsurfer and a kiter about the same time. On a side note.....kooks everywhere this past week in Mirlo, getting crazy here! Newbies out in conditions they shouldn't be...... There's too many men Too many people Making too many problems 1986 https...
