Re: Cabrinha "Modular" Bar compatibilty

I would never trust anything that is not rated, I would never get and use in the ocean anything from aliexpress with unknown breaking load. Further those shackle DO NOT release under load. It extremely risky to use it as primary release. I understand that someone can use it as secondary release but ...

Re: Cabrinha "Modular" Bar compatibilty

Check this Fireball slider option. Seabreeze Aussie forum, Wave Harness topic, page 5. Thanks for the reference Nixmatters! Indeed the 2 bits looks different, hopefully I’ll have a 2020 Cab bar in my hands next week so I can make a comparison. Been testing my system extensively in 2019 and it works...

Re: The circle of trust

My job is significantly more dangerous than kiting without a helmet. And again it is my choice, my decision on what’s worth the risk. I won’t give shit to you for imo being over protected and you leave me alone on my “recklessness”. Deal As I said I respect your opinion, not sure you need to use th...

Re: The circle of trust

I'm sorry but I still do not see any reason not to wear helmet and vest. I respect your opinion and the fact that you might kite in "easy" conditions, still safety gear can safe life. Try to have an idiot landing on your back with 25knots of wind, then we'll talk about. 10 years ago in Europe no ski...

Re: The circle of trust

To all the people who are against helmet and impact vest, please give us a reason not to wear it.
Not just “I don’t like” or “it’s not cool”, but a reasonable and argumented opinion.

Re: Carbon bike bar with integrated adjuster

Dear All, I was some days ill at home and had plenty of time to build a new bar. I don't have any sophisticated tools, no 3D printer and the like. So as simple as possible, and I used bike spare parts ordered from Aliexpress for roughly 30 USD. The adjuster (for the back lines) is placed in the tub...

Re: Sicily the Perfect Kiteboarding Holiday? - Court In The Act Ep. 79

Sicily is kiteable all year round, though the chance of wind increase in summer with thermal wind that in Stagnone blows almost every day.

Re: what Air lines to use ? USA- Cape Town in January

Hi Matt,
in my experience Turkish Airlines is the best compromise, decent rates on sport bags as well.

Insurance it's always recommended, private south african health system can be quite pricey.

Be also ready to face a lot traffic in the water some days.

Re: Surf kiteboard favorites

Has anyone ever tried Luke's Leaf from Appletree vs the Applino and can compare? Hi, I’ve been riding both, one season each, both carbon construction. Quite different boards for different targets. I love luke’s Leaf 4’9 for flat water freestyle and up to 1/1.5m wave (especially if mellow ones). Com...

Re: Ring avulsion

No rings, no bracelets, no necklaces. This should be taught in the first 15 min of a kite course.
