Re: Who monitors the quality of production boards?

...fragile compared to a twintip maybe.
But I can attest that compared to other race boards out there, Alex's boards are far from fragile and are very well built.

No way I'd be taking a heat gun to my fin boxes.

Re: 3 kite race quiver for comp - what do you think?

Alex is right. One can do it with the regular large race boards fine, it just requires a smaller kite. as to the point of windrange in the kites... Yes, I believe that the goal would be to push designers towards developing more range in to the kites. However, it hasn't shown to be possible to fill e...

Re: Kiteboarding's verson of a AC-45

I wonder what the point of the board size limit is ? Kinda puts an anchor on a 212lb guy like me ! you'll be fine at your size. The limit is fine and keeps things such that it's realistic to travel and race. I'm not sure there is much more to be gained by going any larger. I'm 6'6" 240lbs and have ...

Re: 3 kite race quiver for comp - what do you think?

I think most riders will buy all sizes anyways, then register according to the venue/forecast. So there isn't much cost savings in going with just 3. 4 makes sense. 9/11/13/17 for big guys or light wind. 7/9/13/15 for a light person or high wind. plenty of other combos that make sense, but 3 is too ...

Re: Mike Labz ultra thin straps? Also,weight and fin questio

re: fins - talk to Paolo at www.ristafins.com.

He will be able to set you up with the right size for you and your board. He will probably know how it will relate to your current fins too.

Re: Firewire 6'2 versus BW Resin8 6'3 versus F-One Surf 6'2

If you are 6'6" then get a board much bigger than 6'2". Im 6'5" myself. I've learned to pretty much ignore what most other people are riding and go for customs. I've had good luck with Sean Ordonez and Matt @ Kazuma. My boards are between 6'4" to 6'9", with anything else smaller feeling like it's ti...

roller travel bag for 70cm board

I've got a dakine world traveller bag now, which is a little too tight width wise.

Is anyone making a good proper roller travel bag for box-rule race boards yet??? (ideally which can also handle 4 kites, fins, bars, whatever).

thanks!

Re: Props to Naish and Venturi questions

I've been on the Venturi 190 for about 4 months now. here are a couple of pointers: - set your footstraps very very tight. you want to get your feet as far out on the rail as possible, so that you are putting pressure "sideways" in to the fins, not down on to the rail like a twintip. You end up with...

Re: Production Boards - are we there yet?

to be honest, I think it's kind of arbitrary either way. If you're not the kind of person that is going to buck up to get the best board to win, then chances are you're also not going to do all the hundred other things on the list to win either. So you might as well allow some innovation to continue...
