Kaenon brand glasses, model:Kore Tint shade:c-28
PERFECT depth perception, and they are polarized.
Make your own tether.

Watches are another snag risk, and I would not wear

I have a 5'5" 07' Rocketfish, and a 5'4" 07' Naish quad, Rocketfish RIPS in GOOD shaped waves, but the Naish Quad is my favorite, as it is smooth, and fast in big chop, good for all round bump/jump, and waves, especially roughly shaped one's. I totally agree with the shapers discussion on DC website...

Now if you could get some of the pro level local guys @ Cabarete to take that to heart, but instead they will keep hucking F-16s 3 feet from shore in the middle of a crowd of hundreds of other kiters trying to get off beach, but hey, they got the perfect solution: just cut the kite free, and watch t...

I tell my students not to wear gloves and handle lines correctly. My teacher almost lost a couple fingers because line cut through glove he was wearing, and prevented him from having a chance to release once it started cutting into glove. It's no garrentee, but I think gloves give a false sense of s...

Is Surftech only planning on produceing boards that work well only for paddle surfing, and light air / nicely shaped wave riding?. In my experience, roughly shaped waves with very high winds, (Northern Calif), demand a very short quad fin board w/ very little tail rocker, and is NOT something I woul...

Tip for newer riders; Crissy CAN BE smooth and good at times,
but it can turn very unforgiving in the blink of a eye, humbleing
even the most experienced riders, ANY other spot in the bay area
is worth the drive for better odds of a pleasurable experience!.

Tuned 07' 10m Torch to North 07' 20m lineset, had to add line extention pigtails, and pull down stopper to tune kite correctly, (Torch does NOT like long chicken line throw). Seems like a magic size, turns lightening fast for 10m!. Why doesn't torch like a long throw? I have extra long throw and it...
