Re: West Palm Beach vs Ft. Lauderdale kiting?

I'm in Ft.Laud. I've never heard of West Palm Beach or any place northward being more windy than here, but I can't tell for sure. Waves are way better far north. That's for sure. In FLL is mainly chop. Being in FLL is good if you have time to drive. As you're in the middle, you can drive up to WPB o...

Help! Do North Xride 2012 fins need washers or spacers?

I got a used 2012 Xride and I can’t set the fins. I looks like the bolts are too long, so they reach the bottom of the screw before they tight the fin. No matter how much I tight the bolt, the fins stay loose. I don’t want to over tight and brake something. I asked the guy who sold me the board. He ...

Re: I like my kite to be hard, when it will explode?

9psi seems like a lot of pressure for a kite. The manufacturer indicates in the manual the maximum pressure for the kite. And it depends on the size of the kite. This is from the Naish manual: INFLATION PRESSURE: Smaller kites require greater pressure in the bladder to hold their shape. Below are re...

Re: Naish Fly in action

It's a nice kite. I have the 2012-13 version, first gen. But I need 10 knots to get going on Florida chop with a Stylus 145. And I'm 150lbs. Really start having fun with 12knots and a shorter board. I used to ride a Cabrinha Tronic 140 That was a fun board for this kite. I keep it up to 15-16knots. ...

Football doesn't discriminate. You may seem to have a problem with gay people though.
May be you're late a bit late with that kind of feeling.
