Re: Core and German engineering meme

I have no experience with core kites....not do I plan to
Despite having a very small presence at my local beaches the local kite repairman considers core to be his “most loyal kites.”

Re: Anyone tried the FixnZip zipper repairs for kite bags??

Used it on 2 of my north bags. for about 1-2 years, 1 of the bags I use daily.
Large size,
works decently
a bit fussy to install.
zipper has split or come loose a few times with it but always fixable and gets the job done.

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

Yeah they probably had to re-name the brand....too much Airstyle affiliation makes you seem like a kook brand....all value lost. ;) I think this duotone name is non-sense, you couldn't pick a stupider more meaningless name....but this is also the same marketing genius that wrote "THUPER FANTASTHTIC"...

Guy clearly hasn't ever been in deep shit with his kite. Don't emulate this people.

Re: World Record 19m / 63ft ! Largest Wave Ever Kitesurfed

Do you have to be ON the wave for it to be considered a record..or can you claim it by say riding out way in front.... Extrapolating can I claim a bigger one if I watch the video somewhere while sitting on my couch ... what if I just kite surf the same ocean while these waves are going off? Or say p...

Re: Channels on a surfboards

I've experimented extensively with side cut out line board shapes and channels. Vader, Stallion, Evo type boards are absolutely fantastic. As are heavily channeled twin tip boards like the tona pop.
