Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

stabilization != automatic horizon leveling IMO the key feature of the Revl Arc is horizon leveling, not stabilization. Stabilization can easily be performed automatically in post anyway. Ummmm..... Not really on either statement. The #1 job of an external motorized gimbal is stabilization, NOT aut...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Hmmm.... Not really impressed. That's unfortunate. I'm sure what's going on with many buyers on the fence about ordering one of these cameras is this equation: Buying a camera touting revolutionary features (built in gimbal and auto orientation) VS. buying from an unproven start up company (so far h...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Believe me once this camera is in the hands of consumers, it better deliver on it's stabilization or it will be dead in the water before year one is half over. The mountain bike footage will be the proof for me and many others. Not needing a gimbal is really something mountain bikers have wanted for...

Its a simple repair. Patch the leading edge, put a new bladder in and move on.
Probably under a $100 repair being restitched, new bladder and it will be good to go.

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

I second this. I want to see more "mowing the lawn". That's my favorite style. Or better yet, underpowered sloggy mowing the lawn, that what I do best. Kind of like pushing the lawn tractor when it's broke down. YES! Survival Sailing is my jam! Seriously.........the shitty conditions we have, I am ...

Re: Wetsuit Dryer?!

Hang it in a small room with a dehumidifier running. It will be bone dry in a few hours.
btw this works great for your harness, boots/mitts/hood and kites.

You'll be amazed how much water they pull out of everything.

Re: Ride Engine 2018 Harnesses

Yeah Cap, it is a great harness no doubt. I like your idea of a beefier freestyle/team build. I'm no Aaron Hadlow by any stretch but I would buy a burlier version if it were offered. (btw, check out the straps on the Ion Hadlow/Team harness..........it looks like seat belt webbing. :o ) Part of my b...

Re: Ride Engine 2018 Harnesses

I'm happy with the pu tube strap. You wouldn't be if you tried Mystic's Click Bar 4.0 or Pro Limit's Fat Bar..... Not baggin' on anyone or RE, but I've said it before - The strap and closure system is what's holding back the RE from being the end all kite harness. I have a Majestic X and I like it,...

Re: Advice - Don't crash with the board on your feet

Jerome, I saw that pic in Kiteboard Mag and I still LOL'ed when I saw it. I remember you posting that vid here and saying "Damn........that's my nightmare right there." Good stuff. Last year in Hatteras I did a jump in front of my buddies who were swapping kites. My one foot came out and I kicked th...

GoPro Hero 6

It just launched an hour ago. Clone to the 5, just more 4k slow mo rates, new super duper processor, supposedly better image stabilization (still just digital, NON optical) and low light performance. I'm really surprised GoPro hasn't come out with something better. Now no I haven't used it, nor will...
