Hey murdoc - I have been in the same market. I did some research and found several. Most impact vests (from any company) are low volume enough to fit under the waist harness. North, Naish, Pro Motion, Bump & Jump, Cabrinha, and Litewave all make some nice impact vests that fit above the waist or are...

I just recieved my new jacket and all I can say is this thing rocks! I can't wait to brake it in. Tahoe just recieved 40+ inches of fresh new snow since Easter, so I have plenty of time and snow to use this jacket. I currently work for Mammut and have worked with Mtn. Hardwear in the past. I have al...

most of the foil trainers, if not all of them, are 2 line. there isn't really any need for 4 on the small ones. besides, in the end 2 or 4 your basic technique will be the same. another advantage to getting one of those foil trainers is that they fold up into almost nothing. you can pack it with yo...

I have demoed a many trainer kites. Most of the time I meet a new kiter-to-be at the local snowkite spot or beach and they are just figuring out how to fly these kites. I usually end up being the one who gives them a helpfull hand. Due to my good deeds, I've had a chance to fly just about every size...

I just spent an hour trying on every brand of low-profile CGA floatation vests. Nevin's "SWAT" vest had been touted as the thinest CGA vest, however Jetpilot has the "Core" vest that is even thinner and a better fit for a waist harness due to the orientation of the buckles. JP has the buckles more c...

Hey Ian - I work for Ozone, so my opinion is obviously biased, but the Samurai is built by the most reputable foil kite company presently in the industry. The Frenzy (their flagship kite) is THE kite for many of the best snow and land kiters. The nice things about the Samurai are the materials ,cons...

Hey Vin - I have found in high winds or gusts that were above what my size kite was designed to handle safely, the brake is not sufficient nor easy to use in this case. Ozone recommends using the primary release as means of controling the kite and killing it safely and quickly. Unless your Superman,...
