Re: Injury in the hand, first sesion foiling! Just be aware!

That injury can also happen from a blunt strike especially when skin is soft from being in the water for a bit. I had my ankle sliced open deeply from a foil two years ago. The surgeon was pretty sure the skin was split open--like a strike from boxing--vs sliced open. Told me that soaked skin can te...

Re: Moses 2019-2020

the 450 gives a bit more surf-feel to the front wing, and yes more front foot foot pressure which I like. The 683S/679 is a very nice wing.

Re: Anyone else have yearly stats to share?

I get about 200 sessions a year, or more, but it takes me 4x as long to learn a move compared to most so not sure if that counts...?

Happy New Year to All

I really appreciate this site and the folks that make it happen.

Re: Drysuit underwear

Dress as if you were going alpine skiing: Polypro, or wool thermal wear. Do not wear cotton. I like the one piece "Union Suit" as a base layer. If you search for "Kayak Thermal Wear" a lot of options come up" Level6, Kokatat, Immersion Research, Stohlquist, Ocean Rodeo... Winter white water kayakers...
