Re: Core sensor 2 bar depower line wear and tear

Re: Moses T35 board

Yes, I have had a half dozen sessions on the Moses T35. A vey nice upgrade from the T22. It has the multiple strap options(I ride strapless) and the track is better than the through hull mounting of the T22. With more volume and scoop than the T22 , more touch downs can be saved. IMO its the nicest...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Food for thought. Why not just lose some weight. Shaving a couple of kilos off should bring the same performance advantages? The kite might be lighter but a hippo on a lighter 12m2 is still a hippo. A nimble kite doesn’t necessary mean a nimble kitesurfer... After I lost 3 stone I spent the next fe...

Re: XR5 13.5 (Need Help)

Might be worth sliding the EVA floats at the bar up, and checking that the line connections underneath are on even settings?

Admin - it's about time we lost the sexism and deleted this thread. Yeah I know 'sexy' could mean anything. But how do women feel about blokes parading women's arses around for their own entertainment. As a bloke opposed to sexism, I just find it emabarassing.

Re: Pain in foot after kiting.

I remember the days when people would go to the doctor or physio when they experienced pain.
