appreciate any input, if you absolutely must make fun of MY "cold conditions" in comparison to your -40 water temps, please limit your teasing to just one funny remark.
Wimp. :wink:
Agreed,,,,but what booties do you use?
In 60F (which is about 15C), bare feet of course.

Again, I do not agree with the above, but the president has been set. Has said policy changed?

Re: Warmest wetsuit ever

I previously had a Psycho Tech 5/4 but now have a new Psycho One 5/4 which is just as warm as the previous Psycho Tech but is a lot more supple. The new Psycho One now has all the TB stuff the Psycho Tech previously had but doesn't have a smooth skin chest panel. Doesn't matter to me 'cos I wear an ...

Re: Standalone ChickenLoop QuickRelease?

How about leaving 1cm tail with heat shrink cap? It’s so incredibly easy to splice 5 mm amsteel. Why risk having a knot pull through? I have had a bowline pull out with slippery high tech single braids. I have taken to putting an overhand knot in the bitter end. Well exactly. If you want a "bar buf...

Re: Bar interoperability

Back in the day Ocean Rodeo did not use equal length lines so in the newer kites the rear bridle lines needed to be different lengths when you used a newer bar as they did change to 4 equal length lines eventually. And they supplied a number of different rear line lengths with the kites to adjust f...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

mmm... with the 3 strut already so light, the struts being so thin, most of the weight savings are in the larger parts like the leading edge, going to a one strut might only save less than 3/4 of a pound, maybe not even 1/2 pound(?). Why not just ride the 3 strut and have the better relaunch? It's ...
