Any pictures?
Yeah, I can get some for you as I have half built ones in a kit, and all the materials. Gimme a few days, but I will post back here.

Re: Hunt for "My" ultimate kite surfboard

@Matteo V what boards did you end up with? What type of rider are you? I went through all of those boards listed. On the water, I started out sharing a C-kite. When I finally committed half my windsurfing time to kiting with my own kite gear, I started out with a LW twin, and a high rocker high win...

Re: Big soft foot straps?

I made my own non adjustable straps with seatbelt strap, some EVA workout mat, and swimsuit material to wrap. It's nice to have a 1950's sewing machine to sew the loops in the straps for the hold down bars at each end of the strap, but after that for sewing through the thick foam and swimsuit materi...

Re: Water mellon with and without helmet drops "test"

What we see in video is mostly stupid sh*t that people are trying to do. Mostly? So some of those vids are a genuine accidents, equipment failures, and unforeseen wind events? So many pilot errors. There is no possible way to reduce pilot errors to zero in any given group of kiters. Huge majority w...

Wait a minute... that´s Toby right there in the first video at 2:05! Toby, do you think it´s ok that Matteo V uses your misery to justify helmets?
Dont worry - pulley dosen't want to bring in any video evidence of reality anyway.

Re: PLKB Leopard V3 with Ozone snow bar v4

I can't answer any of your questions, but I do have some other advise: The Ozone Explore has a weak upwind angle, resulting in slow progress on long kite tours. A high aspect foil kite will work much better unless you'll mostly be going across and downwind. Good point! Are there any foil kites with...

Re: Hunt for "MY" ultimate kite surfboard

Finally I find I feel what each board needs from me... So stoked on reading this after your first post...it’s not the board, it’s us!! A lot of people blame bouncing on the board but it’s actually foot positioning and it’s called trim (in surfing terms). The same goes for turning and not being back...

Re: Water mellon with and without helmet drops "test"

I knew it. You can't explain it. Because it can't happen on horizontal sand. Did your brain go flat ? I know it is pretty hard. You could definetely lose the helmet. Do you need pointers from my wife about safety ? Wait??? You seriously belive that an out of control looping kite, or sudden lofting ...

Re: Water mellon with and without helmet drops "test"

Mr. V use your own words not video How does someone hit their head on a horizontal hard beach ? Forehead...side of head...back of head. Here we have over 50 kiters. No helmets are worn. In my 22 + years and you know how many days no one has ever hit their heads on the flat beach. Never seen it. Nev...

Re: Water mellon with and without helmet drops "test"

Hey ! You ! Sir V Answer the question at the top of previous page. Oh, s#!+!, you're serious? Mr. Mad-hey-o V Give me a few scenarios on how someone bangs their head on a flat hard packed sand beach ? What happens that make them fall and hit their forehead or side of the head or the back of their h...
