Re: Shoe goo on depower line to prevent wear?

...I can only advocate the Clean Ride as it's the one lube in their line that's wax based. All the others a petroleum variant that probably isn't going to be good for your lines. Worth a shot. Plasti Dip??...........are you guys taking crazy pills? That junk flakes off of your car with a slight gra...

Re: Shoe goo on depower line to prevent wear?

So the other day I had some 6mm spectra and a tube of shoe goo on my desk... That got me thinking about putting them together - a home-made urethane sleeve for the depower rope. So let's hear it... crazy idea or not? Haven't got around to try it yet. I've never had a need for this, but if you are g...

Re: Who was this crazy guy who kited hurricane Irma in Miami Beach?

Yeah, this is media BS. The reporter is the idiot who doesn't know what she is talking about and is just looking for an excuse to find shocking news. I understand there are some local access issues in Miami where this action causes concern, though. That's an issue because he is kiting in front of a ...

Re: Slingshot Wave SST for 2017?

That's a very interesting point. Looking at the SS description they give a better upwind ability to the wave sst compared to the rpm. Myself, I never had any trouble going upwind with rpms. Would you say the upwind ability is actually worst? I don't have an issue going upwind on my SSTs, but I have...

Re: Search underway for missing kite-surfer off Sandy Hook NJ

There's something really fishy here....how can a guy described like this die at a kite spot with other riders around? I wonder if there's another version of the story that we're not hearing yet... There are comments in this thread that say he was a novice kiter practicing water starts. ? So you don...

Re: Search underway for missing kite-surfer off Sandy Hook NJ

@Dangle, thanks for posting, and pointing out the local perspective others can't appreciate. If other local kiters launched him or know him, it'd be interesting to hear their perspective on skill level and such. I obviously have no idea if he was yarded by a looping kite, had a gear malfunction, had...
