Clear deck grips cost so much. Is it just plastic?

Like the look of the Hexagrip clear deck stickers or the Van de Wall ones.

Why are they so expensive and what are they made of and how do they work?

Has anyone got cheaper ones from China that work the same?

Re: Kite pump rubbers

There must be someone who has done it. Seems a shame that one small part goes and everyone is putting them in landfill. Criminal.
Please restore my faith in society or are we truly living in a cleanex throw away society?

Tef gel, cooper slip, silicone for bolts

Hi guys, got a gong surf foil m finally. Can anyone tell me what the difference between tef gel, copper slip, silicone grease and PTFE paste? Can you leave t gel bolts on for a long time with the foil together or always disassemble every time? Tel gel looks the best, would others work or bind quickly?

I have just bought a Gong surf/kite board with a 65 mast and a medium wing. Question: Could I make an XXL pro wing shape DIY out of wood and fibreglass (heavier) but would work the same?

kite wing low volume board

5'8 gong surf foil package. 55 litre board.

With the right kite wing - is this doable at 80kg and strong wind if a knee start etc?

Advice appreciated as I know you really need double the volume board but the guys in Maui are doing it on very small boards....
