Re: Why C kites for wakestyle?

Even 5 years ago, bridled kites sucked at unhooking. They just pulled like freight trains and were so unpredictable sometimes giving near nothing, other times popping you too much. There are more bridled kites out now that are pretty decent at unhooking but Its definitely not all of em. Kiting has b...

Re: Zeeko Newsletter March 2018 #2

So the new alloy foil basically comes stock with a big wing. Got it.

Re: Zeeko Newsletter March 2018 #2

Wonder why they made the new alloy foil a different wing attachment than the previous models. Doesn't look like you can put the carver wing on that one.

Re: Wakeskate and foil

I love how a skate looks with a foil but in the end have found the right skim is way more forgiving. https://dbskimboards.com/ These guys make skims that can be ordered in rigid construction for an additional 10 bucks. 9 ply plasticized maple hard wood with super tough thermoplastic top and bottom s...

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

Ebay and ikitesurf are a goldmine for those that have a good understanding of what they are after. If your feeling a little less confident on that front, phone up one of the bigger shops like real that deal in both kite and surfboards and have a large used inventory. The people there can help guide ...

This is decent advice if you scout for the right used surfboard. Go for something with low rocker that's designed for small mushy surf. A groveler in sur...

Re: Is it fair? tell me what you think...

Have seen so many disgruntled consumer complaints on here over the years and so many times its such a lame attempt to cover up user error or just get free shit by badmouthing a shop or brand.

Re: AVS: Anti Ventilation skin By Zeeko

Wonder if a few brushes from LE to TE with some course grit sand paper might do.
