Re: How dangerous is this?

One always has to ask themselves how this is going to look IF something were to go wrong. In this case, evidenced just by the fact that we are having this conversation, I think the answer is obvious. Not good. Yeah, yeah, we are all free to make our own decisions...BUT, we also have a social respons...

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

Those last two posts are great, and it would be nice if more brands were to think a little more carefully about intelligently spacing their sizes. One point that has to do with physics is that the spacing ratio should get larger with the bigger kites, so 12-18 or even 12-21 (low winds), but would sh...

Re: Oyster foot protection

Give us a report after you try them out. They look pretty good. I hadn't heard of them.

Re: Airline Pilots, Kiteboard on Layovers?

A couple of foil kites and a split board plus a harness that will fold flat and you have a nice travel setup that will fit easily in a duffel bag.

Niceee.

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Very cool, nice to see another manufacturer appreciating an innovative design and licensing it instead of copying it. :thumb: I know BWS always appreciated a simple bar with no extra bits to distract in the surf, so this seems like a great fit being that it's such a clean looking bar. (no trim stra...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Tautologies is probably right... But, there are mainly two 'kinds' of waves being ridden in, and they are quite different. There are the well spaced, smooth ocean waves that are generated miles away, roll in, and are somewhat independent of the local winds. Then there are storm waves (like you get o...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

So, for those playing in the waves in onshore winds (Like the Great Lakes), those marketed "Wave" kites might not be the best. Something fast turning and workable, with excellent upwind is more desirable.
