Re: Is there a difference in wetsuit quality?

What you pay for when you buy a primo wetsuit: Seam construction - stitched, glued, sealed, double sealed, etc. Flexible materials or weird pattern cutouts that improve arm/leg/neck movement Entry system - back zip, neck zip, zipperless, hooded, etc. Interior liner - cloth/fleece/synthetic fleece I'...

Re: Looking for someone to look at a foil package before I buy

I get approached by scammers on the site where 'i' sell 'Kitesurf' equipment all the time, usually asking to buy my "product" or "items" for cashier check if I'll agree to give it to their "pickup person" who will come to my house to collect the funds. Crazy...I pretty much only sell to someone I ca...

Re: Iko training cost

I think for a lesson what you're going for is full safety understanding and enough practical experience to be able to ride without an instructor. I paid $175/hour for 1 on 1 lessons from an IKO licensed instructor using a jet ski to get me upwind to practice waterstarts in the Outer Banks where it's...

Great drone flying, as always. Have you found the upper limit of that 21m yet? When are you just so overpowered you have to come back to the beach?

Re: Joker 11m kite

My 15m Joker7 doesn't fly worth a damn under 11 knots, I prefer to take it out in the 12-17 knot range. The 11m might be a different beast if you can move it around more because it turns more quickly and it'll also be lighter due to less fabric, and not to call that dude who said it'll fly in 11 kno...

Re: Foil Board rail protection

Not really an on-topic response, but this stopped happening to me entirely once I switched to a Dyneema slider rope instead of a metal harness hook...I just pull my safety & loop the chicken loop through the rope. Since the CL is covered in plastic tubing, there's not really any metal to smash into ...

Re: Joker 11m kite

It's definitely a kite for someone with advanced foil kite skills, but if you possess those skills it's got an aerodynamic profile that allows it to sit WAY forward in the wind window and it can go upwind extremely fast. Its weight is a bit of a drawback going downwind as it doesn't drift as well as...
