Re: Ocean Rodeo Soul drysuit, now showing at Surfexpo!

Seriously, for $900 buck I can fly twice a winter to a warmer beach. If you don't want to throw on a wetsuit or a drysuit to keep kiting through the winter, don't. But don't rationalize it with mathematically challenged comments. One winter of kiting in a drysuit or a wetsuit could easily be 30 day...

Nice inset photo, but who's the douchebag wearing a baseball cap while kitesurfing? Super lame.

Re: How do we get more girls into kiting?

Change a chromosome. That's the only way to truly get more girls into kiting. Face it. Girls, IN GENERAL, just aren't into this kind of thing. Too bad, really. I love seeing girl kiters. And there's really no good reason that they can't do it. It's a sport that doesn't require a particular amount of...

Re: Coolest surf van ever :0)

With the rise of the price of fuel some people are already experiencing fuel poverty and shortages around the world. Not to mention the major impact that driving around in a 6+ litre truck does to the environment. Look around you, look at the rise in the oceans and the unpredictable and unusual wea...

Re: Ocean Rodeo releases Fusion Bar

The OR bars already offer a HUGE amount of depower to two lines. Just by letting go of the bar, the front lines probably end up about two feet shorter than the rear lines. But these new kite bridles still need even more to fully depower to the two lines? Just trying to wrap my head around what's act...

Re: Alert: The Start of Worldwide Rules Against Kiteboarding

That sucks. While I can appreciate the enthusiasm of the person that started the petition, how is this line going to help the situation?.... "Most accidents happen while kiting on the beach, in LESS than 6bft." As a legislator, what do you think that would convince me to do? And the "bullshit" part?...

Re: Who has the right of way on a wave?

WTF?!?! Why is this thread five pages long?!?! This is so simple, but a few thick heads are pursuing their own selfish interests, without thinking of the others in the water with them. First of all, why the hell do you even mention windsurfers when talking about a kiter's rules or a kiter's maneuver...

Re: Amazing glassy water video...

Light wind kite surfing is bullshit go Cable or by a boat with friends. Nobody hates light wind kiteboarding. What people hate is underpowered kiteboarding. The actual definition of light wind kiteboarding has steadily evolved over the years. Just a few years ago, you probably hated to go out in 15...

Re: Slingshot comp stick bar. stopper ball fix?

No, yours wasn't a bad batch. It's just the reality of the Comp Stick bar. I was very surprised and disappointed when they released the 2011 bar without addressing the many problems. As the last guy said, "it all makes sense," but then doesn't work in reality... Spinning swivel doesn't work beyond a...
