Better than a wave tube kite, really?
Drift vs hang. Foil kites hang, tubies drift.

Re: Crack in spreader bar - still OK?

Thing about cracks in metal. They signify significant strain, are bound to grow.... then fail. Need a new one. Ya, jumpy is dead on with this one. Get rid of that spreader bar, even if you are in super safe conditions. It has pretty much already failed as the hook has opened up some. Not long befor...

Lip is coming out with non polarized Typhoons soon.
This will allow kiters concerned with fashion to also have practicality in their sunglasses.

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

Oh no... does this mean you are about to tell Lee he is doing it all wrong? I cannot tell someone that they are doing "fashion" wrong. Fashion is about ones desire to follow a trend, or to not follow that trend. Lack of fashion is about having NO desire to follow a trend, or to not follow a trend. ...

Love my new LiP Sunglasses Typhoon watershades.
I see your profile mentions waves. Are you using polarized lenses in the waves? Are you just hydrofoilling waves, or riding a directional too?

This is not a competition between us two but if it was i would certainly win Ya, I don't look at it as a competition either. And it can't be as there will never be a clear winner in this case. There will always be lots of kiters that focus on fashion instead of practicality. And there will always b...

Re: Stomach muscles

Kite more. Under 40...... good advice! Over 40...... You need to do more. I am there now dealing with some stuff that I never dreamed of having a problem with before.

Re: What force turns a twintip?

Hi sergie! When thinking of turning moments applied to static riding you may find it helpful to analyse it around the centre of lateral resistance of the board, ie. the board is not a foil or wing, particularly true for flat twin tips. The force applied to the board is a what goes through the feet,...
