Re: The Perfect boat launch- safe, fast, and 100% reliable

Believe we've got several thousand boat launches in the bag and not a single incident. Please see this link for the full details on what I think is the perfect boat launch. Gavin McClurg holy crap you got a big boat. Good luck laying out your lines on a jetski, lol, you gotta lay your lines and wra...

Re: How high is it possible to jump with a kite ?

Okay, I have just made a little illustration, to "visualize" and show why a ramp dont make any difference regarding jump height, with a kite. The power from the wheels will stop immediately, In real life, a guy on the ramp floors it while he is on the ramp and will fly a LOT higher than a car on a ...

Re: Need tips for not getting dragged downwind please.

1 problem i notice is when i edge the board parallel to wind direction, park the kite, the kite moves toward edge of the wind window and i loose all power from the kite. ok i'm gonna give you some advice that sounds really dumb but it works. You travel in the direction that you look. Do NOT look at...

Re: what is with all these wakeboard tricks

In the end it does not matter what pleases a crowd more. We are the proud few doing something that amazes the crowd. We do this cause we love to do it not because we want to impress huge crowds. you're not making any sense at all. first you say you dont care about the crowds. Then you say you amaze...

Re: what is with all these wakeboard tricks

Can you explain to me why style and creativity only works for big air and not wakestyle? That seems very biased to me. I do agree that big air is stagnant and wakestyle is getting there. What will happen is the merger of the two to some degree. Just watch what Ruben Lenten is doing with his megaloo...

Re: what is with all these wakeboard tricks

Would it be on skill and difficulty or how much the crowd goes ooo and ahhh? When you judge a competition if I were a judge I would imagine that there were going to be points awarded for style and creativity, points awarded for difficulty, and points awarded for execution of the trick. So for a wad...

But all this wakeboard stuff, the fast handle passes, I can't tell what is going on withou...

Re: This is cool - street wakeboarding

Sorry guys, but there is nothing cool about this! I know most of you might be misinformed, but let me clear things up a little bit. We already had a great discussion about this subject in our brazilian forum, because what appeared to be just fun, was actually a great tragedy in Rio de Janeiro. . . ...
