Re: which freeride board for weak knees / antivibration?

Howdy. Had some kite related knee issues a few years back which I eventually traced to using a twintip. The main problem with a twintip is that your back leg, which has the most pressure on it, has the foot pointing not in a straight line with your leg as it should be, rather it is 'duck'. This lack...

Re: Cabrinha Line Replacement Announcement

I totally agree with Toby's comment: "every time a company has a problem with something and they step up, we should be thankful and be happy for honesty. Way worse is having a problem and denying it, so kitebuddies could get hurt!" I bought an early season 2011 Cab kite so I'm one of those affected....

Re: Knee Operation:Will it ever be the same kiting?

Hey B-man One further thing to consider is whether you want to kite on a twintip or a directional/surfboard I had a Nobile 555 for a year and knees were getting rapidly worse. Did some research on kiteforum and found out that when riding twintips, especially when your stance has a lot of 'duck', you...

Re: Directionals versus Twintips for big air

Hey Windrider/flyakite

Thanks for the replies. In response to flyakite - fair point for most surfboards, however I'm looking at the Naish 4'10'' which is the smallest directional I've seen out there. As it's so small I'm hoping control in the air should be pretty good

Cheers

Directionals versus Twintips for big air

Hi All I've been riding a Nobile 555 twintip for 6 months but am considering trading in for a Naish Custom Wave 4'10'' (due to knee soreness caused by duck stance + want to get into the surf more + want to get bigger jumps) I understand Robby mainly rides the 4'10'' and uses it for jumping, wave rid...
