Re: Core, are you insane?

yeah.. that's BS... Not sure how soon you need them but I'm going to England in 3 weeks... ship them to my address there and I'll mail them to you when i get back to the US? You can order through EU then without paying the private jet shipping charges...

Re: How to carry a Two-way radio for Open water

A PLB is kinda binary though... "I'm in imminent danger, come get me at any cost" or nothing.

yup, the 12 is a monster of a kite - my favorite. If i weren't such a fatass, I'd be able to get going in mid teens on it.

Re: North dice 2016 10m: real low end?

I can't comment on the 10 - I have a 12 though. I weigh 240ish and ride a 139 board most of the time. For a while, i had nothing between a GTS 17m and my dice 12m. there was some overlap between the two at around 18-21mph - i could get away with either depending on whether it was the lulls or gusts ...

Re: Barbados or Puerto Rico ?

Sorry if this is late.... I've not been to PR but Barbados is not for beginners. Shore break is pretty brutal, out past that, current runs downwind (assuming you're at the main spot on the south side) meaning you run out of beach pretty quickly - next beach down is appropriately named rescue beach. ...
