Re: Hua Hin - Used gear market

My wife and I are headed to Hua Hin, Thailand in February. We are faced with the question of do we travel light and rent gear or bring gear with us. When we went to Brazil we brought our gear and sold it the day we left. Is there a good slightly used market in Thailand? Not sure what the imports ar...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Also, be careful when you pack the kite. I had my Pivot packed pretty tight when I traveled and also had a slow leak when started to use it. It turned out that the threaded cap had deformed the lower part on the v-shaped area that seals against the rubber gasket. Luckily plastic is viscoelastic so a...

So are you saying Airush designed better kites than Duotone? And Duotone is less innovative than Airush? And the brands that sell more of the worse kites also spend more on marketing?
You're bored, aren't you?

Re: Emirates to Cape Town

I've flown with Emirates several times and they always accepted surf and kite equipment without any problems. I never contacted them before traveling but to be double prepared it might be wise. I also carried both kitesurfing surfboard bag and an SUP without problems. SUP though using my sons baggag...

Re: You love it - SUP and kite shop in Dusseldorf - Do not buy!

I have also only have good experiences. Don't know how many times I have ordered. Last time I ordered a wetsuit and was almost directly notified that there was a delay in shipment with a couple of days as they were waiting for a new delivery. Wetsuit arrived just as they notified.

Re: North Neo vs Cabrinha Drifter for wave/freeride

It's mainly down to personal preferences and also your weight and skill level. I find this video really good in describing the characteristics of the two kites https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNgxwMQVp1Y

Re: Mauritius - intermediate waves?

True about Manawa, it's far out and might feel intimidating just because of that if something goes wrong. The wave is very predictable so once you know how to read waves it's very safe. One option is to stay on the inside of Manawa just where the waves fade out. Best to start with is Little Reef whi...

Re: Naish Slash 2017 vr Slash 2018

First of all...I have NOT ridden any Slash yet but just received my 2018 Slash 6 and 8. I have only ridden Pivot 11 2016 from Naish. My impression by reading both user reviews and tests it definitely felt like the 2018 was worth the extra money. Being an engineer I feel that it's usually better gett...

Re: Best kite specific 3/2 wetsuit

I've been buying & using wetsuits for 30 years. Surfing, windsurfing & now kitesurfing for a total of 30 years buying & using windsurf specific, surf specific wetsuits. There's no difference except that the surf suits are better. Kitesurfing is surfing. I've never had a wetsuit wear out in any area...
