Re: one board for cable and wakestyle?

There really isn't a dual purpose kiteboard I can recommend, but there are some "dual purpose" wakeboards out there that work. I have been kiting with the 2011 Waston Hybrid 143cm with bindings (I'm 180lbs) here in Miami. It's a good wakeboard for kiting. I haven't been to the cable park in a while,...

STF,

Your avatar almost made me forget about the 200,000 gallons per day of crude pouring into the Gulf.

Re: How much heavier are boot bindings VS footstraps (lightwind)

If you are a beginner don't even think about bindings. Way too risky. There are some good things and some bad things about wakeboard bindings on a kiteboard. I typically ride with bindings, but I have been kiting for a long time. I am also a cable wakeboarder. If you ride like a wakeboarder, wear bi...

Re: Kiter killed by shark at Stuart Beach

This some scary stuff. When I think of fatal shark attacks Australia, South Africa and California come to mind, not Florida. I think we have all been in a situation where your kite is in the water and you are thrashing around to right yourself and get the kite back in the air. Its not a good feeling...

Re: Suicide Leash Attachment

Solution from another forum... FIX: 1. take pigtail off mates kite (preferably one of the ones he actually needs) 2. get small stainless ring (like the ones used on the flag out lines) 3. loop one end of the pig tail around your depower line right down the bottom next to the loop. 4. take the other ...

Suicide Leash Attachment

I see many of the pros attach their leash to a ring at the top of their chicken loop. Some of these attachments come standard on several 2010 bars. I think SS called something similar a "Clip n ride" shackle? Clipping directly to the Chicken Loop with my leash isn't working out. My leash has actuall...

Re: Are bindings really that dangerous???

There aren't enough wake boarders on this site to make reasonable comments about kiting with bindings! It is all speculation. Here is my wakeboarders 2cents worth from experience. It is what ever you are comfortable with. The fear mongering about bindings should be directed toward guys just getting ...

Re: Crandon Park Today

I rode 5 days this week in SF. 13th street in pompano thursday, friday and today. Matheson Saturday, the day of the ambulance incendent. Sunday I rode at Crandon. I wish I had a time machine to travel back and kite 2001 again with my 09 equipment. I had fun a times, but I spent more time trying to k...

Convert 09' Fuel Bar to Lenten Pro?

Google has yielded little info on converting my 09' fuel bar to a configuration similar to the lenten pro bar. I am annoyed by the depower line getting in the way of the loop. Has any one converted their bar to the lenten? I need to replace some parts on the 09 Fuel bar, so I might as well do the co...

Re: Slingshot Lunacy?

FYI - The 09 Lunacy is an excellent kite board for blasting off surf with minimal effort or flat water wake tricks. I grew up riding at the cable park, and this is the first kiteboard that had everything I was looking for. Massive pop, not so harsh landings, and holds an edge through the chop. The o...
