Re: Ozone bar new graphic

I thought the industry was beyond being this stupid by now, but Ozone has proven me wrong. This reflects poorly on them and makes me question their entire gear lineup. The bar looks like it was designed by someone who doesn't kite. I'd be wrapping the floats in coloured electricians tape for sure.

Re: Foiling without a kite

I think that pumping a foil looks unfun and dorky. I guess it is cool to be able to catch one wave and ride several, but there is a reason the videos fast forward through guys pumping to foil back out to the lineup. The only way I would want to do this is with a SUP or a tow. It looks way more appe...

Re: foot hook warrenty

I rode my first day with a front foot hook the other day and I can tell it's just a matter of time before it breaks, super flimsy. I'll probably ride the hooks til they break then go back to a loose foot strap, until I can ditch it entirely and go strapless. I would definitely prefer a more durable ...

Re: foot hook warrenty

Oh no I just bought a set this past summer and still haven't used them yet, and they cost a fortune. I am not thrilled to know they are POSes. If I wanted something that was overpriced that I'd keep having to warranty I'd have bought myself a WOO.

Re: self launch - minimize kite damage

Being from the Lower Mainland like you BC, I only ever self-landed untethered at low tide on pure sand, no rocks no shells nothing. I will clean a spot on a sandbar if I have to. All that's happening is my kite is rolling onto its wingtip then flying. I have never had any problems and I have been do...

Re: SUP Foiling

Put a fin on it and try paddling it as is. Can you even stand up on it and get a few paddles in? Now try in swell. If the answer is still yes maybe you could make it work, but it still seems like it would be really really really small. How many liters do you think it is?

Re: windsurf vs kiting vs shoulder

I have a permanently jacked shoulder and feel that kiting is so much easier on it and every other part of my body than windsurfing in similar high wind conditions. Not to mention kiting is 10x easier. I liked the mention of windsurfers having calluses on their calluses, so true!
