Re: Oyster foot protection

for me It took me 16 years to find the ideal bootie at a good price, one that was soft and pliable that did not twist, one that prevented the fine grit and stones from getting inside, one that stayed on even in the fastest hardest wipe out, all with enough feel to make them unnoticeable when worn, ...

Re: Oyster foot protection

Yeah, O'neil 2M split toe reef booties is probably what I have now that you mention it. I wish those Swiss socks came in another color. Do we really need a bright red Swiss band on our ankles? Lots of options, and I agree... as much as I hate wearing them, I hate being sidelined with a foot injury w...

Swiss Socks. Used to be Kevlar, now Dyneema.

Those are the ones I'd heard of. Thanks.

Would you recommend them? How is the traction on surf boards (waxed or pads)

Re: Oyster foot protection

[*]Safety Rick has these mesh socks he wears for reef kiting that are perfect for oyster shells as well. I forget the brand, but they look like those silver woven fishing gloves that protect from teeth and knives. Me, I used the thinnest booties I can find, that also offer protection. I do not like ...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Wow, the Quark stabilizer seems to work much better than the Revl Arc: Interesting device. I suspect I'll check this one out. At the pre-order price it's a good deal. At the MSRP, it's a pricey option for single axis stabilization. I agree that it'll be nice to add waterproof stabilization to a mat...

Ozone Connect Pro harness...

I had the opportunity to demo the Ozone Connect Pro snowkite harness for a few days last week and really liked it. While I didn't have issues with my Ride Engine water harness, the Ozone harness was more comfortable on the snow, packs down even smaller, and doesn't cause my coat to ride up. It was a...

Re: WMFG Pump issue?

All plastic has issues in those kind of temps. You have to be really careful not to bend or bang anything. You can snap off pump feet, handles or crack hoses pretty easily. I have regularly broken snowboarding straps by accidentally stepping on them and bending them backward in cold temps. It's just...

Re: No kite pumps in CO

Agreed. I used the WMFG style pump (same pump but Slingshot branded) last week in sub zero temps and it was awesome! I'll never travel to snow with the old style pump again. In cold weather the older pumps seem to be 3 times the work they are at the beach. I think that inner chamber seal is just che...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Here is maybe another approach for those who are still interested in a Gopro product: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Metadata-Visualization/Post-your-metadata-videos-here/gpm-p/47113 Check out the first Clip, should also work fine for kite Rotation... Is there a link somewhere that shows how ...
