Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

Hi guys Has anybody actually pulled a SUP on a kite ? I'd love to hear from him or her, because I'd love to do it myself next summer with my Bic Windsup, but there are some who don't recommend it . I contacted Ozone in England to find out about their distributors in Canada or USA. Somebody replied ...

Re: Which helmet?

While we're talking helmets, does anybody have any experience using impact absorbing urethane protection? Stuff like this http://2ndskull.com/company-product/cap/?color=Black and this http://www.xrd.tech/howitworks/index.aspx The technology sounds promising but the marketing is a bit dodgy. I am fa...

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

There really needs to be a clear distinction amongst these new generation of hardshell harnesses. As of right now only three manufacturers are making a true hardshell harness that's designed to resist collapsing or pinching the body when loaded... Ride Engine, Mystic Majestic X, and the new NP Atom ...

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

Was totally going to get the new Majestic X till I saw the price. 400 bucks?? WTF, for that I think I'll go Ride Engine. Apples to apples: Ride Engine Carbon Elite = MSRP @ $408 with their spreader bar Mystic Majestic X = MSRP @ $430 with their spreader bar For the extra $22 you get the Clickerbar ...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

One thing people haven't talked about are dry gloves. Keeping your hand dry means you don't have to go to 5mm or 7mm mittens, you probalby get same performance as 3mm if you keep your hand dry. There are crazy people in canada who just use dish cleaning gloves... I have heard really good feedback f...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

Something a bit thinner and curved. Curved for me is really important (like ION clawfinger, Prolimit Curved Utiliy, NP Lobster Glove). +1 I've found gloves that are 3mm or thicker cause my hands and forearms to fatigue quickly. 2mm gloves with a smooth skin and radically curved fingers are absolute...

Re: Fins for Nobile surfboard

The Nobile Infinity uses FCS Fusion fin boxes, so any FCS "twin tab" or identical aftermarket fins should work. Fins are very personal, so I'd recommend either replacing it with identical fins, or better yet check out Finatic and demo several types before committing. I also recommend avoiding side/f...
