Re: From San Andres Colombia to Panama via Albuquerque cays

Really cool shark story.....well written & descriptive! Way to maintain presence of mind! You wonder how often similar things happen under murky waters but you never know its even happening. Have you found good waves? I was recently looking at San Andres as a destination but all the videos are flat ...

Re: Where to find a snowboard for snowkiting

Keep checking ebay. I picked up a 172 Nitro for $90US that was a great board - super snappy & carvy and floaty on powder days & true twin tip. That included shipping btw. It was brand new & some old model + being 172 - nobody wanted the thing. Craigslist & pawn shops too

Re: Vader performance but tougher?

Had 2 holes (smallish) punched in the top while travelling....impossible to say what happened but 1 was punched clean through my travel bag + Dakine board bag. Maybe its nothing to do with the board & is a victim of strange circumstances. Are the new Helium models much different - other than being l...

Vader performance but tougher?

I have a 5'1 Vader & love the board. Seems to respond in every way I want it to & has helped me progress wave skills since I got it. Only problem seems to be durability. Since I hit a submerged rock I was thinking about a replacement but looking for something with really similar performance & better...

Re: I Do Not Know How Girls Work

Nah, the plumbing is pretty straight forward. It's the electrical that can be confusing. Classic! Its really pretty simple. Guys are always wrong. Even when we admit we're wrong and apologize we are still wrong for doing that....they'd prefer an admirable explanation. So - whichever board you choos...

Re: Sand Dune Kiting

Thanks for those! I'm sure the video doesn't do justice to the sensations you feel out there riding. The lip smackin off cant boosts etc look super fun & the area I'm thinking about is just 1 after the other wind lips & troughs. Love the powerslide 180's too. :thumb:

Sand Dune Kiting

Has anyone spent much time trying to kite sand dunes - like those near Florence, OR; Dunes in Brazil; OBX, Egypt? Seems like it would be really similar to snow kiting but friction from the sand would be an issue for a board? Lots of gliding possibilities too it would seem. A couple of youtubes I've ...

Re: 2017 Airline Sports Baggage Fees & Rules

As stated in the OP. Support the airlines that support us(or at least don't anally ream us out). I had had decent luck on Delta until my last trip. Always used their credit card & bought above standard seating....seemed to work for board bag allowance. Went to Baja & got stabbed for $150 US. They do...

Re: Upcoming Rockies Snowkite Trip

No. We've been getting some crazy winds. An area N & E of there was getting 80+ mph gusts. Should settle down a bunch in the next few days with new snow on the way. Colder too
