Re: Utah snowkite kite sizes

magnolo Do you need lessons? No, but would I suggest hiring a local as your guide, YES. Especially if you are only here for a short time a local can tell you when to go where. So much of kiting anywhere is getting to know how to read the forecasts, where to look for wind data and how to interpret it...

Re: Utah snowkite kite sizes

Bring 15 and 11. I only brought 12 and would like smaller kite. Whatever skis you like ride most... ask some locals about winds and site protocols and only go when locals are out. There are enough locals around that if no one is at the spot you are at, you are in the wrong place. Ive had one day so ...

Re: now what's that ? salt on a board ??

I think you misunderstood me. When you are making it, the salt or sugar will dissolve in the epoxy, thats why suggest letting it set up first

Re: now what's that ? salt on a board ??

Salt is great for wake skates when you're wearing shoes. Don't know about surf boards but it gives me a rash when I screw up on the wake skate and the stars align completely not in myth favor Thanks for bringing it back up.

Re: Additional fins to LW board

First. Don't go forward with putting fins there especially 7cm! There is no need for fins. Especially there. It will increase drag and give you nothing. If anything put smaller fins on the tips 2.5 or less. 1/4 aluminum works great, cuts well on a table saw to rough out then use a router and build a...

Re: Board question

"Maximum flex" sucks. The can custom IS a noodle as are most boards. This does not leAd to maximum pop or smooth landings. This is real world dynamics and closed loop physics applies very little to on the water. Back to the rider whose looking for his next TT... I build customs, while there's a lot ...
