Re: waveboard: pad breaks off

Any solution? I'm not sure that these are repairable - might be easier to just replace the pads altogether. That said - a preventive solution which I picked up from other wave riders - get a joint of uv-resistant caulking all around your pads (front and side edges are enough usually). Transparent i...

Re: Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

Nice video - wrong audience. Why don't you pitch it to kite companies who are jumping out of their pants while trying to shove wakestyle down our throats? There's got to be a way to make them realize that in reality, not that many riders are interested in that unhooked crap... as in very-very few.

Re: Sun and UV protection clothing

I've got a facemask similar to this: https://www.boatingmag.com/resizer/tgahJmaA5nIu1Gp3gNMV7ZbMNnc=/1034x916/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-bonnier.s3.amazonaws.com/public/MNTLERE3TRAIZHPQZEXPABIAWQ.jpg Works quite well actually for mowing the lawn-mowing, but gets hard to breath trough if wet.

Re: Naish Pivot 2020

Every kite comes with an adapter. I guess what will happen is that we get pumps, and keep the converter in the kite bag? Doesn't seem like a huge issue. I am used that from another kite I own, and through the years that have literally never been an issue. Nope, far from it. Most sane brands nowaday...

Great....another proprietary inflation system. Forget your pump at the beach and you are screwed. No one else will have the correct adapter.
Isn't is the same one as F-One's?

Re: Naish Pivot 2020

Seeeeeeeetttttt!!!! Finally, Naish kites that are worth buying and owning. For all octopus-pimpers, I'd pay to see you troubleshooting a leaky kite. Especially in field. Where on any "conventional" one-pump system one only has to clamp the hoses, see what deflates and only fix the deflated part - on...

Re: Great boosting twin tip for 110kgs & 202cm?

It is hard to find a great boosting and playfull board to fit my sice, and to try them before buying them is not possible here in Norway. I have a light wind board + a CF Raptor Pro 137 x 43, I like it, but it is to smal for me for boosting in less than full power conditions. Any tips would be real...

Re: Wetsuit for a fat bloke ;-)

The zip always works its way down and the zipper draw cord flaps around too much. Never seen that happening since 2003 - that's when i've got my first steamer for spearfishing and I took on kiting around 2006. Perhaps you weren't zipping it all the way to the end? And the leash is supposed to be wr...

Re: Wetsuit for a fat bloke ;-)

Well could put it on and Waist was not a problem but could not take it off by myself because of the fz. :D :lol: :roll: That's what I've been saying all along. Front Zips only work for skinny shnores with no shoulders. Totally idiotic idea which is getting pushed by manufacturers probably because i...
