Re: Boots

Unless you're 100% healed you might want to stick to straps. After surgery and rehab I rode straps even behind the boat( I know lame but had to ride!) Boots put a lot of stress on my ankle for a while. Lot of leverage.Just my 2 cents :D ,everyone is differant Straps are the worst for ankles. No sup...

Re: First boots?

Ronix are lightweight, easy entry and the intuition liner makes them comfortable no matter what. Mines have been holding up for a couple seasons now, but theyre beginning to look used to say the least. Next boots of mine will definitely be the Hyperlite System bindings. Would be nice to always be ab...

Re: How to improve your pop

Duh, its called goofy and regular foot. Its supposed to be harder one way, ever heard the term switch?

Excercises in the gym? For real? Get the fuck out. Just go kite or wakeboard and try a lot of shit both ways, it will come eventually.

Re: What´s has the better relaunch.... Fuel x Torch?

Try the new hadlow pro, such a sick kite. 4/6 line setup, if you ride 4 its a hardcore c-kite. Add the two bridles and it depowers like a hybrid, and slacks like a C. Relaunch is easy either way. Feels like such a solid kite too.

Re: Correct Footstrap Setup / Ergonomics to prevent Ankle In

Found this study though: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23016104 "The majority described feeling a pop or buckle after attempting to land a high jump. Only 5 participants (13.5%) described a rotational mechanism created by catching the board edge in the water." "Wakeboarding may be a high-risk s...

Re: Correct Footstrap Setup / Ergonomics to prevent Ankle In

How about very loose straps and trying to crash in a way that you don't put pressure onto your feet? That's why I explained it on my Airstyle DVD, that the risk of getting injured is less this way. Works for me so far since 13 years. Knock-knock That is because you only dangle. No offense. Why woul...

Re: flexifoil Hadlow ID

I loved the kite, but the bar fucking sucked. That grippy stuff almost tore up my hands in half an hour of kiting, and the chickenloop was way too small. You can prolly change that though.

I can also add that it boosts great when powered.
