Cabrinha syncs - big pads??

So, I treated myself to some syncs,and duly spent 30 minutes swearing and seating trying to attach them to my board. Now they are attached, the pads look insanely large. Is this normal? I have size 8 feet. The pads almost overhang the heel side edge of the board, and my heel is miles away from the n...

Re: What animal have you encountered on the water?

I sat on a baby sting ray in the shallows in Goa and it stung me on the ass. You would not believe how much pain I was in for the next 3 hours......

Re: Rib Injury Sucks

It wasn't that hard really - only just windy enough to stay upwind on an 11. I felt the harness pull upwards on my ribs & I was immediately ...

The valves are quite spikey, considering how thin the fabric is, and I think it has been rubbing away at them whilst in transit. Both the kites have 3 holes in identical posit...

Re: Cabrinha Nomad Material problems ??

Hi I was really interested to read this forum post as I thought I was the only one! Both my 7m & 11m Cabby Nomads (bought in 09) have developed 3 small holes in the canopy (well, more like tears, as they are approx 3 or 4mm long x 0.5mm wide, very close to where the air valve is on the leading edge....
