Re: Kiteboard to Japenese language translation help

Yes. It says "kaitoboodo" which is kiteboard phonetically in Japanese. Grigor and I have both given you the version with -ing on the end but that would make the text too small :D If you were feeling silly you could do: KAITO! BOODO! and it'd be a similar style to 90% of advertisements here, which is...

Re: Kiteboard to Japenese language translation help

カイトボーディング or if you're riding a directional: カイトサーフィン "kiteboard" is fine though. Snowboarding usually gets abbreviated to "sunobo" around here. Using the Imperial flag as a background, while very manga, might raise some eyebrows. It's not as bad as a swastika . . . more like a Confederate flag. In ...

:rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: These were the ones! :thumb: Glad to hear that I wasn't alone in that boat... Oddly enough, despite the fact that my head isn't particularly large - I'm also having sizing issues with most shades. Tried the Lip Typhoons the other day, and these were too tight for me...

Two words I wouldn't associate with my eye sight protection - 'Cheap and good-ish' This is your eyesight FFS!

Re: Eye protection -> tips on cheap and good-ish sunglasses for kiting

Not the Wiley-X glasses/goggles? I had the same idea, and the same result -- horrific fogging. They were too small for my face in goggles mode too :( :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: These were the ones! :thumb: Glad to hear that I wasn't alone in that boat...

Re: Eye protection -> tips on cheap and good-ish sunglasses for kiting

I could probably speculate about what's wrong with these Oceans for a lot longer - starting with the fact that their choice of raw materials is sort of odd - I'd have used something less brittle for plastics. But if I was looking for something really inexpensive, I'd probably start with a motorbike...

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

Just stop... I know for a fact that I am already better at kiting than you, and probably living way better than you ever will. I own a house, own a boat, and already close to being worth 7 figures. What the fuck do you do for a living? Sit on your ass all day collecting welfare? Collecting beer can...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Hi Peter. Thanks for taking these efforts. Clear Explanation. One comment.... I would think the term YAW doesn't come from aviation as it is also used in the maritime environment. Since boats are around a couple of thousand years longer than planes it must originate from our beloved environment. od...
