Re: Ya know your a kitesurfer when......

When your shower takes 30minutes to fully drain due to all the sand in the pipes....

If you've ever used a toilet plunger on your shower during kiteboarding season.....

Yeah, I've used those airtime valves, good quality. Only thing was about 3 months after attatching my first one I got a leak around the base. I've put some glue around the base of the self stick type just to help seal them ever since.

I've done this twice for replacing nipples. Boiled a mug full of water in the microwave, submurged the nipple, pealed it back bit by bit. Reheated the water and repeated til the nipple came off. Used kitefix glue to ahere the new nipple. No problems since

Line weight?

Friend just gave me set of 25 meter lines. 2 of the lines are rated at about half the weight of the other 2. Do I put the stronger ones on the front or the rear. Will be used with an 06 waroo.

Yeah, I tried a friends 135 Flexi not too long ago. Was soooo much easier going upwind. I was going to go get one myself until I remembered I'm broke :-?

Well there are a ton of ppl that swear by Dereck's boards. I'd go for a custom from him, hopefully my next board too.

e.g.: if I see a nice wave, it is a ramp for me. Others see it and want to surf it. There goes already the difference, which is good!
Its a ramp going out and for sufing coming back in :idea:

ATM I dont have to. The work Im doing right now I can do on my own hours as long as it gets done by the due date. So if its blowing from 10-4 I go kite, come home, take a shower, and go in to work at 5 :thumb:
