Re: Waterproof GPS Tracking Watches

Does it need to be a watch? ...or take a gamble on the results you get for "waterproof gps logger" or "waterproof gps tracker" on ebay/google? This reminds me, I need to contact the Trace people about my 2...

Re: Am I the only person that thinks SUP is gay?

Very similar actually:

But definitely not gay, because "the log driver's waltz pleases girls completely."

Re: Ion Air Pro 3 cameras??

I got an original Air Pro on closeout. I've been happy with the purchase. I use it to record my bicycle commutes, kiteboarding sessions, timeplapses and whatever else. It's not a GoPro, which is probably a good and a bad thing. The good is that it has a form factor which makes sense and doesn't requ...

Re: Instructional Video: How to Drift Launch Your Kite

This video got posted to the kiteboarding reddit as well. While I usually like the Always Windy videos, this one kinda sucks. It's fine for what it is; but isn't at all useful for situations where you *need* to drift launch. Kite the Bay has some better videos demonstrating the common technique, but...

Re: Run away kite!

I've never trusted the kite pump to hold things down when rigging, I was always afraid of the kite getting away on me like the stories here. A few years ago I started setting up tether bags for launching and landing (even if there are other people around to launch, who knows if they'll be there to h...

Re: Vacuum Seal Bags

I've tried the 'space bag' vacuum bags. While they worked (once); they're flimsy shit and easily get pinholes, rendering them useless. You know what works just as well or better at a fraction of the cost? Kitchen garbage bags, or whatever, and a vacuum (or kitepump if you want to work your back and ...
