Re: SIA 2017 (Snow Fair Denver January 2017)

The wind has been dead most of the season on Lake Dillon.

Re: Opinions. on snowboard bindings. for snowkiting

My favorite bindings for downhill and kiting are now overdrives, they have a bearing to pivot around instead of using the baseplate as a pivot point so you don't have to make them as tight to have them super responsive on hardpack. They are also full carbon highbacks and super expensive but can bomb...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic 2

I've set my personal limit for foil size to 15m. It turns slower than 17m LEI but pulls more, so I could very well use either one. And I have. But new 13m size of Sonic2 might be the best combination between power/handling. Me too, the other way around though -- tubes over about 12m are IMO too big...

Re: Kite surf to snow kite transition

Magnetraction works great, small kites for roaming around, big kites for jumping. I usually won't even jump much on anything smaller than a 15. If the wind dies when you're in the air, a 15 or 18 gives a much softer landing. If it's nuking out the old term keep it low and go applies, those days are ...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

:P Super day Saturday winds 16 - 20 MPH. Put down several miles of tracks. Unfortunately all back and forth in our little area. Maybe 1500' in one direction. Ended up on a ten meter foil. Somewhat disappointed by the kite. Would have liked to feel comfortable on my 15 in those winds. Conditions are...

Ha, yeah not enough snow anywhere up here yet, kind of odd for December. I'll probably just ride the resorts tomorrow instead.

Re: How to be affective in Very deep powder.

Hey Wayne totally sick. God I would love to have some turns like that! I have recently purchased a new kite to deal with the power issue that I feel plagued me last winter. 15M slingshot Turbine. Unfortunately I had a one on one experience with some volcanic rock about 3 months ago and had to get i...

Re: How to be affective in Very deep powder.

The problem with waxing snowboards is there are few snowboards that have sintered bases. Meaning carbon sint is impregnated into the Ptex. This carbon absorbs wax and releases it over time while in use. Skis generally have this. Boards usually just have extruded bases as a cost cutting measure. The...
