Re: Kite gear not allowed in Egypt

Any Malaysia, Indonesia, Iran etc stamp will prevent us from visiting Israel. This is not a laughing mater for us living in this part of the World. Fortunately, this is absolutely not the case, even more so, Indonesians can travel to Israel and vise versa is also true. I think the same applies to M...

Re: Kite gear not allowed in Egypt

OP, u do realise if we visit Malasyia or Indonesia (Bali), UAE, etc, we would never be allowed to Israel?! Even as Australians. Never heard of that. Any credible source for that? What I have heard about plenty of times is the other way around: Having visited Israel (stamp in you passport or other e...

I'm struggling with the idea of riding without a safety flagging line. If shit happens do you just let the kite go?
At the end one might release the kite from the leash completely. Which is than the same thing like not having it.
Riding suicide all the time anyway. Start doing it, youll see...

Re: That guy is dangerous

Ah downsey! I was hoping we could get to some unfinished business. He has no third party liability insurance, and laughed about it. First off, I have never laughed about insurance. BUT I do find it ironic that you are grandstanding about you having insurance over your kite activities. But you have ...

Got plenty of silicone gear for my little ear ;)

Here is the thing, one is very lucky if both ears are exactly the same.

Hence, no exactly the same plugs will do for everyone...Being through many.

Pm me if anyone wants this samples.

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

in fact, I'm a bit surprised, with all his experience, that he didn't anticipate the consequences of the flat impact & try to land differently. Are you serious? :o That's a height where you can't do much but brace yourself and hope you don't break anything. There is not much he could've done to avo...

Wonder if a 2mil neopren hood helps? Or still need a helmet?
Absolutely helps. Solves the issue. Won't help against impact of hard stuff of course.
It does help, but lost at least 2-3 over the years. And then shit happens...
I just carry a spare plug in a pocket. Small and inexpensive.

Re: Eardrum injury any significant risk

I have a history of ear problems outside of kite surfing. I wear ear plugs in the water no matter what I'm doing. Back in 2012 I had a bad crash that blew out my right ear drum. I was already wearing ear plugs when this happened. Got extremely sick for about a month with an infection that resulted ...
