Re: Turks ?? Where to stay and kite??

But some how we lucked out because before we came they had no wind at all. I was there for 2 weeks and it was blowing every day 18 to 25 mph. Then when I left last week it was still blowing. So maybe I did bring the wind to the island. Enjoy the Turks. So you confirmed what I saw in the forecasts w...

Re: Best harness for lower back pain: Ion Apex select or Mys

Hey there, Poosibly those molded harnesses are realy good BUT I would be very hesitant to it if I live in an area that require the use of thick wetsutits or drysuits part of the year. Then the harness will certainly not fit at all. Don't be so certain, I live in one of those areas and I use my Engi...

Re: Ultimate All Carbon Twin tip?

My main board is a Carved Imperator V 139x44, I use it from flatwater to overhead waves, everything. (I'm 85kg) Very very comfortable ride, it eats up chop like mad, very easy on the knees as it smooths out all the ripple. Planes early, I've used this board in very light wind with my 17m kite while ...

Re: Light Wind Kite

They can be bad enough that they get packed up and left in your garage for 2 years and then when you finally decide to get rid of them you can't even ask $100 cause nobody has ever heard of them. Never tried one of these but I got stung by the griffen monkeys years back. about the same price for a ...

Re: Turks and Caicos 11/29-12/12

I have to agree, it was amazing last week. It was pretty cool the way we just met up in out in the bay and were able to just put our kites down, stand there and chat David. Thanks for stopping by and finding us. Again, amazing week. I did get this picture of the Shore Club, it's a monster... IMG_169...

Re: Turks and Caicos 11/29-12/12

I'll be there with laughingman Feb 29-Dec5 too, looking forward to whatever we get up to! :) I'd also recommend the car rental in TCI, everywhere you want to get to is far enough away that a car or taxi is "needed". I did meet a guy there last year that stayed in a place closer to Graceway Gourmet I...

Re: labeling your gear

Vinyl lettering sticks to boards and stays, same stuff used by sign/custom graphics shops. Find a sign shop and get them to cut you a bunch, or there are cheaper hobby level cutters available too so you can just cut your own, opens up the possibility to make your own lettering and whatever other cre...

Re: Normal Full HD video camera - which one?

I've been pleased so far with my Canon t5i paired with the 18-135mm STM lens but I've only done indoor vieo with it so far. It's still fairly new to me and I've not had the opportunity to video any kiteboarding with it yet... The STM lens is the key if you want to record sound in your video, pretty ...
