Carbon or prime ride engine harness question?

Ride Engine harness: is there much difference in the real world use between them or is the carbon one just more as it’s carbon and you pay to say you have the best.
Is the prime one just as good but cheaper?

Anyone have real beach feedback?

Is this the same as Tikal Tef-Gel or is the Rocol wrong for stopping galvanic corrosion on a hydrofoil? Would bicycle specific teflon grea...

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

Thanks for the insight Peter. Yes, clear for my boards. How do the clear deck grips work? Is it tiny pores in the surface that make a mini vacuum to the base of the 🦶?

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?

Re: Dimitri at it again. Check out the shirt.

He should definitely be a voice on the muppet show. Sounds like a European Fozzy bear.
