Re: Naish 2019

Yeah in one of the Youtube vids Kev Langeree (SP, sorry) mentions being able to pump your kite up to 12 psi as the recommended pressure due to the new high tensile thread. Is everything else beefed up enough to handle that pressure? If yes, that's awesome. I would love to really crank the psi up on ...

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Thanks FL&OBX. I do really want to stay in that Mirlo area. Cross of Honor Way to be exact. This may sound kind of silly, but I've been staying there every fall since I (we) learned to kite in '02. I'd love to rent one of the houses on the sound one more time before that spot closes forever. That st...

Re: Nobile NHP Carbon VS Carved Imperator?

Yeah if you're open to suggestions,(didn't want to hijack your thread) the North (Duotone) Jaime Textreme carbon is a great board too. I just bought one this spring in 139x42 for more of a freestyle board. It's fast like the Limited, probably the lightest board I've had, upwind is fine and really ca...

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge......this one sucks.

Yeah if anyone that lives in Rodathe/Waves can keep us updated on the construction that would be great. We're kicking around the idea of a last minute fall trip to Rodanthe if we can pull it off before the bridge goes in!
Thanks in advance.

Re: Nobile NHP Carbon VS Carved Imperator?

I've owned a 2014 Nobile NHP Carbon 134x42 and currently have an Imperator 6 139x42.5. Both boards are great, but very different rides in my opinion. For some reason my Nobile Carbon NHP felt very slow and didn't go upwind as well as the 2013 NHP I had the year before. The flex felt similar but the ...

That was my advice, not that I followed it. My wife looks like Sofia Vergara. Now for me, I'm just a rich old ugly fart. :D

Re: Advice from an older married kiter to a young one

Also completely agree with having the kiddos early. Empty nest at late 40s with plenty of disposable income is a beautiful thing. Couldn't disagree more. For most people. . Or at least the fifty percent that wind up divorced because they got married before they had any clue as to who they are. . An...

Re: Impending trade war: Tariffs affecting the kite industry?

Yeah you have to wonder with so much equipment being made in China that something has to give. I was just told that one of my outboard motor suppliers that is made in China is getting a 10% price incrase effective as of August 1st. That's substantial....and it will hurt our company for sure. I'm mo...

Impending trade war: Tariffs affecting the kite industry?

As much as I hate politics, I'm curious on how the tariff battle between the US and China will have any adverse consequences for the kite industry?

I'm in the marine industry and the shit is already hitting the fan....
