Re: Anyone ride the Shinn Slicer splitboard

Any idea how it compares to the Nobile nhp? I've had one of those for a couple of years, and was pretty surprised how much it feels like a regular board.

Re: wind proof top for wetsuit recommendations

This is one of the more comfortable ones I’ve used, it’s be light weight compared to neoprene.

Kite footage 2019 Season Great South Bay NY

Finally got around to editing all the footage that just piled up from 2019. Most of it is mine, but some shots come from a buddies GoPro, or another friends DJI Osmo.

Re: Camera Decisions

Sounds like we are all searching for a passable solution. I’ve found that a regular GoPro just doesn’t have great angles if you are trying to film yourself. The Max has been better for that. When I’m in the mood, I’ll shoot friends riding on my GH5, and that always gets the best footage. Here’s my b...

Strava has been good, but I use the Watch and not the iPhone app. I’ve tracked bike rides with the iPhone app and it was accurate

Re: Mystic stealth rope spreader w/ Navigator Bar

I’ve got the surf spreader bar and it is definitely inconvenient for self launch and for handing off kites to other people. Other than that I love it. Agreed that the hook looks like it’s in the way when you add the rope, would love to hear what people think who have used it in the real world. Here’...

Re: Slingshot WF1 + 76cm Infinity for Kite Foiling

I have kited on a similar setup. The only difference was I was on the wf2. I believe they're the same board. Mine's just covered with foam all over the top and sides. It worked just fine for me. The board does not have a lot of nose rocker so if you breach you're probably going to fall. I had no pr...

Re: Seat Harness Manufacturers

Here’s the new ride engine one. I’ll probably give it a shot at one point. https://rideengine.com/products/2021-contour-seat-harness I had a Dakine Vega, but the thick leg straps came together in the middle and created quite a sharp point of firm material that poked me in a particularly uncomfortabl...

Re: Slingshot WF1 + 76cm Infinity for Kite Foiling

How much do you weigh? My best guess is you need to shift your weight quite a bit more forward ( this is actually easier without straps ) I learned on a slingshot space skate 65 wing, 70cm mast, and a 5’2 Nobile split foil board while strapless. The Nobile has less volume that the WF-1, which might ...
