Re: Pivot vs Enduro

I know how this is going to look since I have ridden the pivots since day 1, but I have had quite a few sessions on the newest Enduro and I could really never figure this kite out. I was constantly getting pulled off the wave, and especially when the kite turned I ended up getting pulled off the wav...

Re: kai lenny at kite beach insta clip

yesterday they went to the Vans surfing competition on the North Shore but by the time they got there the competition was already over. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Well that feeds right into my stereotype of people like that. Plenty of places to learn, but not sure if these people should be kiteboarding.

Re: woo2 vs. Woo3 and why I've recommended upgrading for higher jumps

Hey, I kited a few times with Woo 1 and Woo 3 (optimal placements on the board for both of them) and biggest difference i had was 0,5m higher on Woo 1 :lol: I have to say, usually 0,1-0,2m appart from each other... In conclusions, i get very similar results with both 8) That sounds pretty good. I f...

Re: Red itchy eyes *only* in warm/tropical water (even with goggles), why?

Well having lived in a sunny area for a while and having seen a variety of people including myself getting sunburnt eyes...I'm not making shit up. For me, the suncream is not the problem because I do not get red eyes when wearing proper sunglasses. I do not think it is the water, because going out i...

Most of the time its getting sunburned. Are you using decent sunglasses? It could be sun lotion, but probably its the sun.

Re: How to stack boards for transport

Any ideas how to stack one directional and two twintips without damaging them? I don't wanna remove the fins. I was thinking on having some soft towels between the boards, but are there any better solutions? The boards will be inside a roof box, tied with straps so they don't move around. Well the ...

Re: Felt like I Nearly Drowned

So glad you are okay. New gear and new spot might just be a recipe for disaster. Big surf changes the game radically.
