Strap and pads...

Looking for some recommendations for new pads and straps. Thinking about the Cabrinha Sync, or maybe some sort of x-lace system. I need to replace my Wainman straps and pads they do not stay tight and my feet will not stay in them.

Re: tell me all 2010 kites without pullies and bridles

5th line is ok . Technically it is a bridle and it can still cause probs but it is minimal. I am more open to pullies and bridles than I used to be but having said that someone got taken away on a stretcher at the beach yesterday eyes rolling after getting kitelooped and KOed on their cabrinha kite...

Re: Michigan?

Re: Cured of the Board Leash.....

Ouch brah, glad you made out on that one. What happened? Stacked it, tumbled by the surf, leash became slingshot and board death weapon? Pretty much a beginners wipeout.

Cured of the Board Leash.....

Pictures are worth a 1000 or so the saying goes. This happened today in about 20 knots in pretty choppy surf. I am a beginner and got a leash so I would spend less time retrieving my board and more time on it. I was wearing a helmet and the leash was a long real leash made for kiting not a surfers b...
