Re: Which harness to get???

I'm also a 31 waist and the S Shadow fits me much better than a M.

Re: Which harness to get???

I had the Mystic Warrior and now ride the Mystic Shadow, primarily in the surf. I have ridden these both with and without a wetsuit and haven't had any chafing issues. The lower profile fits me well (I'm 5'7), and I like how clean the new Shadow is (there's not much for slack lines to catch on if yo...

Re: Small, portable pump for downwinders

Thanks for all your replies. I hadn't thought of the modified electric pump, and I looked into the foot pump but it was a bit too large for me. However, I think I found a solution that works pretty well combining the inflation bag with a high-quality balloon hand-pump (which I believe is similar to ...

Re: Small, portable pump for downwinders

I wanted to follow-up on trying the Alpacka inflation bag ( http://www.alpackaraft.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=store.catalog&CategoryID=52&ProductID=74 ) as a portable kite pump. After a few tries, I was able to get the inflation bag somewhat working, but to be honest, it doesn't work very well. The pr...

Re: Mulcoy 6'0 reviews

I just got the Mulcoy 5'10" and have surfed it a couple times in 3-4' waves and kited it once. I'm 5'7", 70kg (~155lbs), and I would say I'm an intermediate level surfer. I have paddle surfed and kited the Airush Converse boards (6' and 6'4") and also two of the Resin8 boards (6' Tokoro pintail and ...

Re: Curve surf waterman pack for kiting

I like these ATAN booties for walking back from a downwinder (when needed). The latex soles give them a barefoot feel with a solid grip. I was always catching my toe when popping up (paddle surfing) until I got these. http://www.paddleboardspecialists.com/Madi-Low-Cut-Split/productinfo/AT3322/ ATAN ...

Curve surf waterman pack for kiting

I'm not associated with Curve Surf at all, but these guys have put together some well-thought out surf gear. I have the waterman pack (around US$60), which is intended to be a hydration backpack that you can wear in the surf. It's basically a small pack that you can duck-dive with. It has a chest st...

Re: Small, portable pump for downwinders

Hey Ric, Thanks, this looks perfect. I was about to try the paintball canister route, so you just saved me a bunch of hassle + $$. I got the extra inflation bag for the Alpacka raft ($15) shown on the video. I'll need to make an adapter for the 3/4" output of this bag pump, but I don't think that wi...

Re: Small, portable pump for downwinders

Thanks for your help. I could try hiding a pump, but there are other beach users, so it might not stay put. It takes a little more than 10 minutes to pump up a 10m using the small hand pump. It's definitely no fun, but it works. I think the small, exercise ball pump I'm using just isn't very good (c...

Small, portable pump for downwinders

I'm wondering if anyone has found a good, small pump that would fit in a small hydration pack. There's at least one spot I kite where I hike in and then do a downwinder, so I'd like to take the pump along with me. I'm currently using the Curve Surf Waterman pack (which works great in the surf becaus...
