Re: Why don't all kiters read Kiteforum?

short answer... it's boring! Unless your into hydrofoil or endlessly debating this years gear vs last years then there's not a lot here anymore.

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

For wakestyle boots have advantages for sure. The twisted knee with one foot out of the straps on hard landings is less likely to happen.

You need to get off your keyboard in your mums basement and get out in the real world. Do something positive and then write about it. I was hoping to be unchained soon and let out of the basement to get barrelled, but i got too big to move eating $5 dominos pizzas whilst playing Fornite. Hmm... now...
