Re: How do KBs keep from drowning when they wear boots

U clearly didn't see the vid of the guy that had his leg bone sticking out at the exact level of the top of his bindings. It's gross as! And some if the best wakestyle riders in the world don't agree with wearing boots in the king of the air. I enjoyed my time in bindings, as soon as I learned you c...

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

Optimist format, build your own boards/ foils even, none of this "authorised manufaturer$" only deal Measured and weighed in. There is a $reason$ there are 150 000+ optimists registered in the world, and yet the youth Olympic games had to entice any kiting youth they could find at all ( very few) th...

Re: How do KBs keep from drowning when they wear boots

I think it is very likely Lewis would not have got such intense whiplash which led to going unconscious in straps. The boots appeared to decelerate Lewis almost instantly.. all the energy transfered to the whiplash. Big waves (like west coast NZ big) and tight boots.. got some friends that ventured ...

Why do you think Auckland is average? There would be nowhere else on earth you can kite on 2 very different oceans 50 mins drive apart.. the Pacific And the Tasman.

Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas

5 days out, use windguru to plan your kiting as winds are wsw (prevailing) and ne.. opposites! Always arrive just after high tide.. outgoing tides if riding estuaries.

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

Potential gravy train is exactly what it is. Invent a discipline of kiteboarding that didn't previously exist for Olympic advertising revenue potential. Advertise around the world for youth to compete with no previous experience.. because no one has any and there are still so few youth involved in k...
