Re: Skis for all-round riding

I have only snow kited a few times but I am an avid skier. If you are on soft snow chatter will not be an issue unless you buy something with an extreme rocker and no metal. I personally hate skies with no metal, they just have no feel IMO. 95/100 MM range? Nordica Enforcer is the hottest ski on th...

Skis for all-round riding

So last season I tried snow kiting. It was super fun and I am considering getting some skis now. I do want something I can use for multiple things: Snow kiting, regular skiing, powder, top walks. So my thought is getting some reasonably wide thinking 95-100mm touring skiis. I'm not looking to immedi...

Re: Fiji - Tavarua

This is why I hate dealing with airlines. Whenever I can i ride with an airline where I have enough miles / status to get away with shit.
...or just fly Alaska They are awesome. I get that's not an option to fiji tho.

The one airline I really hate is Hawaiian. Hooooorrrible service.

Re: Fiji - Tavarua

The question is where are you checking in? Will the normal curbside trick work?

Ice not flown fiji but all other airlines have similar rules and it's usually not an issue. Wait.. do you mean there is an extra charge or that they will deny?

Re: Fiji - Tavarua

Hell yeah you have to bring gear. I have no idea about the forecast...but damn imagine being there, and it being windy enough to kite and not having your gear????
I have many buddies who rode cloudbreak and it is high on my list of dream destinations.

Re: Choosing an Impact vest ?

I think there are some coincidences when it comes to crashes and impact vests. I have had many different ones..most of which I did not like. The two main ones I had that I did like was a DaKine and the Naish one. Dakine had little less padding under the arms / sides but were a tighter fit. It also h...

Re: Hand drags getting yanked

I just want to iterate what the others were saying. The smaller kites gives you a bit more control in that you can wait longer and change the speed of the kite easier. So slow loops, if it feels like you need more power just pull a bit harder. The bigger kite is just way easier because of the lift ?...

Does anyone know where the store's gear is being sold off? There might be some good deals!

Re: New Takoon SynapS Bar with unique quick release

Unique quick release? :lol: The only unique feature that I see with this bar is the ability to reload the CL with only one hand (0:48 in the vid). I also like that when the CL opens, the lock-pin folds inward like on North's Iron Heart, eliminating the possibility of an injury from an exposed lock-...
