Re: Tear Aid A won't stick to bladder

Isopropyl alcohol rub after a light scuff with 300 grit sandpaper. I do this on all bladder repairs

Re: The worlds youngest kiteboarder?

I have taught judo for years so I have a fair understanding of the development of players, what force their body’s can withstand and as important what they are able to understand. I can stop a match when things are going south, in kiting you are all alone. 4 years old is far to young, 10-12 fir the ...

Re: The worlds youngest kiteboarder?

As a father who welcomed my daughter to the sport at 15 I say 4 years old is far to young. Parents give your head a shake

Re: Foil board advice

I have the same set up as you and have ridden the T22 for a year now, I weigh 63 kg, this set up is the bomb for me in all conditions. Of course this board has two front straps. If I were riding with straps then I would want one front, one back, my preference.

Re: Loss of Lift

I have a 633 and 91cm mast, I have had this many times when well powered, flat water wing well submerged, sure is a face slapper. Love the wing, I don’t find it a big issue.

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

I have had a peak 4 8m for about 4 weeks, 7 sessions from underpowered to overpowered, so far as a reasonable rider who flies all jibes and tacks (mostly), I’m not impressed. If you think it flies like an LEI then you are wrong. It does stay in that air pretty much until you put it in the drink but ...

Re: WOO max Landing G-force. What is it mean?

Woo has been consistent for me especially since I have had the woo 2 so long. G force above 7 ish is in my experience kiteloops. Consider your highs force landing an outlier.

Re: Does waist harness slide up on drysuit? Should I just use wetsuit?

I am140 lbs, 5’-4”, chest 38”, waist 30”, I have a medium sole. I couldn’t fit my shoulders into a smaller suit, its perfect. Arm lengths are fine, legs were long so I has a tailor remove 5” off the bottom of the Legs. btw the harness will slide a little with the dry suit but it is reasonable.
