Re: 3rd party liability insurance UK

I am slightly more concerned that the bksa insurers differentiate between different disciplines and this had to be questioned to get it included.

What about freestyle, what about wave riding? Racing? Are they considered differently?

Re: Carbon vs Wood made boards

the Sonntag reference was because you incorrectly said no one was using bio resin..

I haven't used more than a Sigle carbon layer either, (apart from the rail overlap)
you saw fit to claim I was using a product that I hadn't so I will happily defend what I had built.

Re: Please help to open SA beaches for kitesurfers

Go to a foreign country break it’s laws and get caught ? what happens? You get dealt with by the authorities.

Now do it in the middle of a pandemic as an entitled super rad kitesurfer when the rules specifically state not to? Dick behaviour.

Re: Kit is becoming too expensive

Maybe the math has been lost in the mists of time.. or maybe it was a poor choice of word and he is now hoisted by his own petard given his predilection for pedantry

Re: Carbon vs Wood made boards

Sonntag fins that have set multiple world records use precisely that resin system Incidentally the boards I built were built with the same stuff and have ben clocked over 50 kts.

Re: Carbon vs Wood made boards

Still not posting your work but being inaccurate about others. Classy.

You woo records? Wtf are you joking? Is that some kind of holy revered tome ? we should all bow and scrape to your ‘woo record’

Why would I even be searching for that? Why would anyone?
