Re: Duotone...North who?

I actually sympathize with Boards and More. It was like the mob asking for "protection" money. They created the Rebel, Neo, Evo, Click Bar, etc, and North stood there with hand open, you know, money for nothing. Albeit I sympathize the cause - the way they handled it deserves nothing but pity. DUOT...

That's odd - a FUN kiteboarding video?

Here's a couple of revelations to the whole kite industry about making kite-related video content: 1)a bunch of charismatic dudes and a few cows make it look a lot more fun than yet another 75lbs fitness chick who can't jump for sh@t. 2)this one will come as no surprise - but it's perfectly OK to sk...

Re: Wetsuit rubber going bad - anything to do?

Thanks guys - looks like I'll be retiring it. Thought about repairing the neck piece, but given its age and curent prices on decent 2/3mm suits - it's hardly worth it. PLEASE! Send it to these guys. It can be repurposed. :thumb: https://www.sugamats.com/recycling I will do just that when I'll figur...

Re: Duotone...North who?

Considering how much effort and money they are pouring in "being present" and affirmig that "Rebel now by don-don is the same as Rebel by North" - they should have just sliced the prices and make the new old gear with the new stupid brand name - at least somewhat interesting for riders. But as such ...

Wetsuit rubber going bad - anything to do?

Hey guys, I have an older O'neill Heat wetsuit from around 2011-2012 which is still more than solid, but the rubber neck collar has gone bad. It's all gooey and sticky, rubs on the skin and it's not that easy to wash of. Hence - is there anything to do - or it's time to go shop for another suit?

Re: Guide to the Airush Union 4 - real world what's new, where it's gone, what it's like..

Mike, With all due respect - that's one huge pile of bullocks typed up by somebody who definitely is better at composing marketing speeches - than at riding. Did they torture you into publishing it or something? I mean - it's bad enough that you can't take a piss nowadays without stumbling over yet ...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

Mike, Although you are making a good point, I don't think that 1-2" either way make that much of a difference when a kite is in the sweet spot of its intended range. I tested the U4 12 in well above its low-end range, so - IMHO - it should have performed a lot better than it had - even if tuned the ...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

I'll be traveling to Montreal to visit KiteForce the end of Septemeber. I'd love to get you out on the Union again. There is a chance that if it was just one session on this kite maybe the winds were challenging or the kite wasn't tuned correctly. Thanks for reaching out Sam, as I've said - the kit...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

I thought the Mk II was pretty stiff around the corners, certainly the slowest turning of all the Unions... Well, if you found U2 to be slow, I can't even imagine what you'll say about the U4... When I demoed the U1 - I found it really nice - exactly what I was looking for - a grunty and lively c-s...
