Re: Cloud Kites A Caution

Mat Why do you do this? I don't understand why you dissect posts the way you do and reply with a myriad of questions all leading discussions off topic? Is it entertaining to you, or do you think it somehow improves things here on the forum? Do you do this for us, the other users, or just yourself? K...

Re: Cloud Kites A Caution

Post asking for assistance with pretty much any aspect of the cloud kites, you will get the help you need. The community around these kites is very strong and genuinely full of Aloha. Choose to post your issue as a general warning/complaint with little to no solid information as you have done and th...

Re: Help me jump strapless :)

It’s been mentioned but I’ll stress it. Board weight makes a big difference. Rode a 9 lb tough built kite specific surf board for years and needed a decent kicker to air. The whole dynamic was dictated by needing to completely angle the bottom into the wind. Switched a few years ago to a 5-6lb super...

Re: Shorten Naish Bar

Slingshot are one of the few current bars that do not have integrated floats and bar ends. They are still pretty easy to cut down without ruining the OEM look of the bar.

Re: Thank you Lou Wainman

All props to Corey, Flash and Robbie, but none o them can really hold a candle to Lou. They were all key to the plot, but Lou's riding was a fresh departure from everyone else's and it blazed a trail for the next few generations. He was so far ahead of his time with an innate sense of style. It's tr...

Re: The stagnant foiler.

You need to try some other wings. Others have suggested as much, but they'r talking at you, not with you. You always come back with "I prefer ....." when in reality, your experience of value is on one set up. Two years ago that might have sufficed for an experienced opinion, but so much has evolved....

The sport is too big to be curated through the lens of a single mod.
