Re: New Inflatable Rash shirt

They look pretty sick. For sure useful.

Don't forget they are not a survival ticket though, someone drowned at my local kiting wearing a fairly buoyant impact vest in the waves.

Re: The State of Kiteboarding 2018 - Change Needed

sss is grass roots, no governing body sanctioned it or has authority over it, actual kiteboarders created it , run it and make the decisions. That is what kiteboarding needs. "The marketing hasn’t changed at all, it’s always been tech shit over substance." That simply isnt true, i gots mags back to ...

Re: The State of Kiteboarding 2018 - Change Needed

interesting, yes the cost was expensive to start with no i dont mean that by overdevelopment.. in fact wood core twintips are cheaper than foam for example.

The State of Kiteboarding 2018 - Change Needed

The industry has changed kiteboarding for the worse by no longer being an enabler of grass root decision making from the bottom up ( not the top down). Now we have the added situation of World Sailings attempted involvement, a top down situation ( World Sailing the Authority of the GKA), making thin...

Re: Mario and Sol Claim Victory at GKA Air Games Cabarete

" The young Brazilian WKL Champion then came in, grabbed his strapped board and stuck a massive board-off triple front roll in the last minute. Before he and Jesse even left the water, it was pretty clear who’d clinched it." What a bunch of absolute kooks. The GKA are an embarrasment to kiteboarding...
