The wind range I kite the most is 18-28kts. I just want to see how to properly scale the quiver when y...

Re: Crap surf fun

Why would anyone want to go strapless in crappy waves? Crappy small, as in closeout, no distance from one to the next, and no organization = great place to practice strapless!

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

:thumb: I think a very wide board like the Nugget will make it much harder to waterstart and carve. After 3 sessions when you can stand on the board, width won't really matter. I say buy a $100 used surfboard and ride it til it breaks (maybe a season, maybe less). By then you will now what kind of b...

Re: Stance ?
