Re: Places to Kiteboard near Greenwich Conneticuit

On good wind days I see a lot of CT kites on the south shore of Long Island ( oak / Gilgo / tobay / etc)

Re: 2019 Watches

I'm over 60 sessions on an Apple Watch 4, and so far I've been pretty psyched with the Strava app. More detailed thoughts below: Cons * the Apple Watch sports strap will come off, that's how I lost my first watch * buy a sports "loop" so even if the velcro comes off, it won't slide off your wrist * ...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

Thanks. So far I'm happy with the GoPro Max, I just wish there was more resolution or higher framerates in 360 mode. Is the insta any better there?

Any thoughts on the modular design and how it will hold up in water?

Very cool, super interested to see test footage.

How does the waterproof case affect image quality?

Re: Caribbean alternative to Cabarete for early February

I just got back from Union Island ( St Vincent and the Grenadines) and would have gotten skunked had it not been for foiling (12 to 14 knots). From what I hear, this isn't typical for this time of year. It picked up towards the end to 18 knots, and my understanding is that 20-25 is more typical. The...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

Here is a short test on the beach. It was not enough wind to get on the water. But pretty promissing. This is at max Field of View. Normally I would crop so the horizon has less distortion. Thanks ! So this is with the 360 module and enabling auto horizon leveling when reframing, right ? Yes. 360 M...

Re: Mystic stealth spreader bar with a seat harness?

Very cool, thanks for all the extra detail. I could see how extra width on the spreader could push up into your stomach if you do a squat on the Vega. I’m only riding my seat harness when my back is sore and I want a change from my ride engine. Hoping I can use this spreader for both. Sounds like pe...

Re: DIY floating gopro tripod build for Kiting

Thanks again for the tips and encouragement. Do you have other photos of the rig you built? Stuff from other angles or with the cameras on or on the water? Even footage from the rig. Just having a hard time visualizing how your design works. But I can see how a directional canoe shape could handle c...

Re: DIY floating gopro tripod build for Kiting

So both of you are saying that a smaller square base will handle the waves better? I guess I thought about it backwards in that bigger boat handled bigger chop ( with the right shaped hull) better, but clearly I have no idea what I’m doing :) Thanks for all the tips! One thing that I did for more sh...

Re: Mystic stealth spreader bar with a seat harness?

So you don't think it fits quite right? Would you not recommend the pairing? I'm a size L and was going to get the 280mm or 320mm stealth bar
