Replies: 64

Dirty Dish, 10 - 15 Waroos in my area and I have never seen or heard of this happening. Did the guy call Best 1st before you started calling for bad quality on this forum? I doubt it. The Waroo has the same LE seam as the SS Fuels that I have seen. Even they blow out once in a while but nobody is he...

WOW! That's the first time I heard Panchito give bad advice. Your 16m does have the low end of a 19m but also the high end of a 12-13m. 15 mph for a 16m bow is perfect. You can ride that kite just fine till @20. Your board is fine too but your technique or posture may be off a little. It's only your...

For the best trainer kite with the most bang for the buck, go with the Best 3m kite from Best Kiteboarding. For @ $150.00 you get a 2-line 3m trainer with bar and lines, a safety leash and a video. Give it a look at http://www.bestkiteboarding.com

The '04 Slingshot bar has that design. I made the same mistake once and I saw someone I was teaching make the same mistake. I was self-landing, luckily it only crashed the kite into the sand. If I had put the kite to the other side to land, I may be dead. It's a really sh1tty design. It shouldn't b...

Yes, use the suicide leash connection. People have been doing this since before bows and now with bows it's alot safer.

Don't try to sell him a 20m C-kite for a first kite! He'll hate the sport before he gets anywhere with it. No bigger than a 16m and a bigger board. The 20m will probably be your second kite.

Good thing you didn't buy a Jimmy Lewis Custom. Cost is the same but NO WARRANTEE!! If you break it the day after you get it then your out $800.00.

Kind of a coincidence that his name was Link but anyway. Hopefully the medication will help that impotence proble...
