Re: How much do top riders make?

How much money do these riders make for the brands? North started this year with very few riders. I knew people planning to switch to North before they knew any riders.

The SST can't stay on the beach without sand on it. Its dangerous and I've had it fly away twice because of not enough sand. Its such a pain.

The designer of the REV now runs a factory that produces DSD Deliriums in the Philippines . They'd be from the same guy.

Re: Fatality @ Sydney

Really sad to hear. I'm guessing it was getting towards 7m weather. There is rock groins to prevent beach erosion. But it is a beginner spot due to its flat water. Sadly this could be kitings youngest fatality.

Re: Surfboard weight

A lot of crew are moving onto PU blank with epoxy resin. Especially if they have access to a custom board maker. EPS blanks are cheaper, and have some nice qualities, however a PU blank is far nicer to ride above all these strange kite board composites that come and go.

Re: New grip on Cabrinha bar

If you buy the right foam, you can use contact adhesive to attach it. Not much help here, but we used to do it years ago and it worked fine. The challenge is to get a non porous foam.

Re: Cheap place to kite Dec, Jan, Feb (Maui alternative)

Western Australia, while not as cheap as The Philippines, better surf and flat water, everyday wind. Hire a camper van and head north.
