Re: 12 years kiting- pushed the button on first new kites today

I'm not sure whether to congratulate you for your new kites or for going 12 years without buying 'em! Impressive feat! The 12 years part, that is. Buying new ones always seems almost too easy. Either way, congratulations and be safe! :jump:

Re: Should I repair or leave?

Use Tear Aid for most bladder repairs. I don't recommend glue on a bladder, because it will stress the areas beside the glue lines. You want reinforcement that does not add stress to specific areas, but rather stretches across all portions of the repair. That's Tear Aid. If you are intent on using o...

Re: Slingy Apollo 2020 wing...

Does anyone know how the weight of the SS Apollo 60 compares to the Moses 633? I'm (178 lbs/80 kgs) using the SS H2 (Gamma) now with a LF Galaxy 4'2" board. I'm intermediate level freeride, can jibe reliably with down loops in both directions, like to jump, starting to work on duck tacks and foot s...

Re: hatteras july august

I'm heading to Hatteras this weekend and Tuesday could be a good NE day. I'm looking for beginner (can ride upwind) launches and noticed Sandy Bay Day Use Area. Does anyone kite there? We're staying in Salvo, but it seemed like Salvo Day use might be too offshore in a 20mph NE wind for a beginner. ...

Re: Hatteras closed. Who will get the money back?

Surf or Sound Realty (SOS) made a very poor business decision. SOS was the only OBX rental company that continued to deny refunds to people who couldn't access their rental properties during the shut-down even after the NC Real Estate Commission issued an opinion that refunds were required. The fact...

Re: 17m kite Overkill

Yes, it's a session saver. But the best use for a 17 Contra IMHO is to ride it powered in the same wind speeds others are riding 14-15 m LEI's. The 17 m Contra is relatively heavy so, while it's a good light wind machine, it can't compete with large foil kites in very light wind. But it's a great a...

Re: learning to foil behind a boat

Hey, friend. I feel for you. I left FL last week for more moderate temps in NC. FL summers are a test. Is this a completely stupid idea? Not at all, if you approach it as if it's a fun adventure. It'll be frustrating, so having the right attitude is essential, IMHO. If not, then what kind of foil wo...
