Re: Too many mistakes to list

Sadly I'm familiar with the families other you tube channel... This is an off shoot that the kids do and its unbearable as an adult to watch. The family has been stuck in Fiji because of covid. They have made several attempts to go to Australia but were denied several times if I recall correctly. Th...

Re: iUp by Taaroa - the first intelligent hydrofoil

Seems like a great application for a sail boat with foils and maybe even efoil but don’t see the point either for kite or wave foiling.

Re: Dakine and Cabrinha unite. Thoughts?

Seems like a good move that makes sense... I like Dakines products and you can always get them at a good price. Hopefully they don’t overthink things and over charge for it. I just want a comfortable, good looking harness that doesn’t break.

Re: Duotone Evo SLS

Sls evos are on Mac Kite’s website... pricing is about what you would expect. 14m isn’t shown as being available. 12m is a little over $1900.

Re: Surfr + burner phone = Poor Man's Woo

I gave the Surfr app a go for the first time yesterday and came away really impressed. I used my everyday iphone 7 (Put it in a waterproof cover) in wet suit mode on the low sensitivity setting and I will have to say it seemed to be accurate. I always figured these apps and devices over exaggerated ...

Re: Does waist harness slide up on drysuit? Should I just use wetsuit?

Any tips on sizing for a drysuit? Yeah hopefully you're tall and thin... I have a medium Soul and it could fit someone who was 6'4 if they were thin enough. The shoulders on the medium are tight for me with a 40-42" chest. I like the suit but don't feel like they have great sizing especially for sh...

Re: RideEngine new Unity Spreader bar

I like the idea of this being rigid all the way around. My biggest issue with the harness I have now is how it squeezes on my sides and the fatigue that goes with riding for an extended time. I would think this would almost entirely eliminate it. I wouldn't say its a direct rip off of the stealth ba...

Re: Wakefoiling with no rope technique

I've been able to ride behind my Ski Nautique which does not have a large wake. It has a small sweet spot that is ride able but it is doable assuming there isnt a head wind and yes that makes a huge difference especially if you have a nice tail wind. I generally go about 12-13 and ride in a similar ...
