Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

I would agree that liquid force have great customer after care. I had a problem with a part on my foil and they sent me a replacement almost right away. I hope they continue to produce kite foils.

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

no wonder the industry is dying Flyboy! The Best deal in 2017 was unusual - who knows what was happening behind the scenes during the period - but in general, I have bought 1 or 2 year old kites, either new or lightly used & very rarely paid more than $450 - $600/kite. Fortunately, the kite compani...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

not a huge surprise because it is actual windsurfers that entered into the kiting market with the same attitude as what messed up windsurfing. I do not think anyone messed up windsurfing it is still popular as a "have a go sport" at the beginnner level - however very few people are willing to put i...

Re: Full face helmet for foiling?

First time I saw someone in a full face helmet was down in La Ventura. It was so hilarious that I bursted out laughing. I just couldn’t help myself. For me hydrofoiling is all about the feels and something like that would greatly reduce that for me and in my opinion is not worth the extra protectio...

Re: Full face helmet for foiling?

I wear the Gath Gedi helmet with the full face visor and have been very happy with it. I wear it for cut and sun protection more than impact protection which it really isn’t rated for it. If I wanted impact protection I would go with a white water kayaking helmet or maybe downhill skiing helmet. I ...

Re: Kiteboarding with a kidney transplant?

Dont show that video of Dimitri to your doctor. :) If you were asking me to teach you, i would ask: Can you swim 200m in open ocean ? Can you dive down 2m and swim a bit? Can you do 50 sit-ups, and 20 push-ups in a row? Can you jump from a 1m high object onto hard ground onto your feet? If not, I w...

Re: Janek Grzegorzewski | Episode # 166

Lol ok. They probably thought he was one of the guys they had told earlier to stop kitesurfing. It is not impossible the Policeman was a windsurfer.

Re: Kiteboarding with a kidney transplant?

Thanks for the advice guys, yes I am on immunosuppressants for my transplant. I plan to only be out on open water, mostly here in Jupiter. Yes I would have to be careful because of infections. @Bille, very inspirational! I have no excuse to get out there and give it a try. I'll get myself an impact...

Re: Kiteboarding with a kidney transplant?

The thing with kitesurfing is it is a bit like driving a car it can be very dangerous or pretty low risk depending on when, where and how you drive (or kite). What ever conditions you kite in you can have some pretty hard impacts with the water so I would consult a doctor first but kitesurfing is no...
