That's a long winded way to say "Rinse your shit", also "Bolts may seize over time, yo".

Re: Wingsurfing Right of Way

“knowing I am right” isn’t going to do anyone much good in a collision so I avoid it, I slow down, I turn, I keep out of the way, I give water “Being right/having right of way” isn’t what is important. Not being a dick is far easier to implement, yeah you were in the right, but so what give them so...

Re: Kitesurf holiday with kids club/ childcare??

Assuming your preferred destination is Europe then here’s an idea - if not - ignore the rest of my post. Never stayed in the resort so can’t vouch for it (see Trip advisor) but have kited here year after year. Awesome spot. Normally rent an apartment nearer town and then drive. I do see a lot of fam...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Mako vs Nomad Wave TT

after reading this tread, my wife had a Nomad board made by Simon. the Carbon C Wave board arrived today and I have to say it looks and feels great! Unfortunately, we don't have wind to try it, but Im confident she will love it. Simon was up most professional during the "design" process and since t...

Quick Quiz

How many old North kiters will go to new North?

Re: North kiteboarding 2020

Red Bull should move KoTA to NL for 2020

....just checked out the footage from the Red Bull Megaloop. Looks sweet-as...big, big winds...big, big smiles on the kiters faces...big pints of Amstel like swell and waves ( :D ).
