Re: Which strapless board to get ?

I have the BRM Paipo (shinnster) and it is an awesome all round board in surf and flat water conditions. You will need larger fins if you are planning to do big turns on a wave. But it is a great travelling board and is pretty hard to damage. I have twin tips, surfboards, skimboards and if I could o...

Re: What's your favorite lightwind kite?

19M Edge w 32M Race lines. About as good as my Speed 4 Lotus 21. My 17m Contra has 22m lines...will 10m extensions noticably help? The longer lines will allow you to spend more time through the power zone, so your bottom end will be improved a lot. The turning speed however will start to suck big t...

Re: What's your favorite lightwind kite?

I didn't see him say that. It just there's a lot of vitriol flowing everywhere I am compelled. LOL. I tried to be fair and share it around a little. You know you really do bring the mardi gras with you dont you. :-) Regardless .... I love kiting. Happy to use a foil, happy to use an LEI, happy to h...

Re: What's your favorite lightwind kite?

17m BRM Cloud is the best LEI light wind kite I have flown.

18m Chrono V1 is the best foil light wind kite I have flown.

17m Fat Lady, 17m North Dyno, 19m Ozone Edge are all good as well.

Re: Kite Paipo, first build

Great job .... I assume there is little or no flex in the board?

Re: Alaia3- veneer composit

My Naish Alaia is the fish tail version. Having no nose scoop doesn't seem to affect it in chop, swell, small waves, it just knifes through everything. I'd be interested myself in trying the Waterlust version or someone's custom Alaia. First I'll learn to appreciate the Naish. I read somewhere the ...

Re: The forumla to get kite purchases past the missis

I think it helps when the new Slingshot SST bags are the same colour blue as the old RPM bags.

I think it helps when you sell 11 kites and replace them with 5.

I think it helps when you loan your spare boards to friends.

I think it helps when she has a more expensive hobby than you do (dirt bikes).

Re: Best TTs for waves

I haven't tried the twin wave. There's a guy locally who used one and does well on it. I should take it for a spin one day. Yeah i've thought about finding some to make my board. I simply don't have the time or equipment to build a production class quality board. Note that my board, Though insanely...
