Re: What is the international signal for "Abort launch"?

A clenched fist held out to the side. It is best to go over the basic hand signals before launching so that there is no confusion. I pretty much always tell the launchers to wait for my thumbs up before releasing. On my local beach thumbs down would be the signal. Sometimes followed by a tap on the...

Re: Gear advice for 6’2” 210lb guy

At the wind you are looking at 14 and 11 Naish Pivot is a kite that it is impossible not to love. It overlaps fine with a 10 too, but it has great high end so riding the 11 at 18 is no problem. If you want more range out of it, 10 would be killer. Btw the 10 is such a good jumper. Btw I liked the Cu...

Re: Whatever happened to Shawn Richman?

I talked with him a few years ago. I think he got tired of the kiting pro life and started his own company outside of kiteboarding. He still kites and looks like a superstar doing it.

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Umm..... I do not feel I have the ability to explain to you how a conspiracy works much beyond the basics. 1. A motivation to deceive is established by a group of people, typically power or money 2. A system is identified to be exploited for it's lack of understanding, or its emotional level 3. A p...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Matteo, WTF. Really. So your idea is to trust nothing question everything because you can find anecdotal data on scams? Its ludicrous to sit at a computer and send bits over a variety of overall reliable hubs to have someone else read it and say science is bullshit. I'm curious, since your overall c...

Re: message not leaving the outbox

Your PM box is probably full. The allowance is just suuuper low. Try deleting some messages and try again.

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

New technologies and civilization progress never come from preachers and politicians. They come from inventors and scientists silently working their asses, rather than marching protest rallies. There would be plenty of new development, which would dwarf those pathetic renewables that we have now. I...

Re: 2018 Naish Slash

Had another session on the 7 slash. This time with a TT. Super fun, jumps like crazy just like Clint said. It is has much less aggressive initial pull than the pivot, which makes it easier to control. I would think this kite is a great kite also for jumping for intermediate kiters. Great hangtime, g...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Agreed, doing something comes at a price, is inconvenient. Societies becoming irrelevant/extinct because they are trying to do something about climate change is taking it a bit far I think, unless those societies would take extreme measures. One could easily argue the opposite. The same argument co...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Personally, I like the posts by MM and enjoy following the links that he provides in his posts. He provides an alternative point of view and non traditional way of thinking. I hope we can kite at the same beach one day. Alternative to what? Reality? You cannot choose a truth. You cannot choose to j...
