Re: 2018 - Cabrinha Kitesurfing

maybe you girls should stop worrying so much about how you look with your kites and concentrate on actually kiting. :allbegood:

Re: Wainman upwind ability.

going side by side with friends out there, i noticed while I'm on my Wainmans, they can typically go upwind a bit better than I. the other kites are mostly Cab and Best. But I wouldn't trade them; it's not a huge difference and the Rabbit's are excellent all-around wave and jump kites. i'm mostly wa...

Re: Switch Element 5 Kite Review

i had an Element V3 (11M) and really liked it except for one thing that eventually relegated it to the garage. It did not handle lulls well. it was great in gusts, but loved to drop out of the sky in the lulls. anyone know if this has been addressed in the V5? I'm considering a new 7M, and for me, w...

Re: Kiting after shoulder surgery?

i had shoulder issues for well over 5 years. tried massage therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy , stem cell therapy, and finally, full shoulder replacement. it still hurts. bottom line: doctors often look at xrays and see what they want to see, and have a diagnosis that fits into what they special...

Re: FCS II fins for kitesurfing - are they falling off?

what's the point of removing them after a session and putting them back in before the next? unless you're using the same fins on multiple boards, i don't get that. i leave them in...they haven't ever fallen out.

Re: Straps or strapless

Your both wrong. Google wave skate and you get this: huh? Not sure how I am wrong. All I am reacting to is when people say this is the way to do it...and the judgement is purely out of their context. no one is saying 'this is the way to do it'. there is no right or wrong answer here, just opinions....

Re: Straps or strapless

straps on a surfboard are akin to riding a twintip without straps....it's ridiculous. Nonsense. No rules. Why would you take your conditions and think that is the only way to do something? there are no conditions where straps are necessary on a surfboard. and of course, this is just my opinion...ev...

Re: The Duke - A Nobel Addition To The OR Mako Family

Duke update. Now have had my third session on it. Have had it form knee to head high waves... this is what i kind of questioned about this board, and the strong concave in general. I own a Mako King and though it's a fun board, it does not do well in the waves relative to a normal surfboard. I thin...

Re: Wanted: Wainman Hawaii "ManiaC" Team Riders

I have just seen and experienced far too much ugliness in this sport over money Sports is just like any other business; it's all about money. that's just basic economics. you can hate that or like it...doesn't matter, it's reality. I know nothing about anything on the inside at Wainman, but as long...
