Re: Who is responsible for kite when landing?

Usually when I land a kite for someone, I catch it and then turn it over with the struts facing the sky so it is kind of flying in your hand (upside down?). Then I walk to the guy and hand him his kite or if he tells me to flip it, I do, at that point it is near him and he is able to do what needs t...

Re: Rip in 6 to 10 knots?!

A guy in Kailua rides the same or similar board, I can vouch that he has been the only one out on a few occasions, my guess was 6 to 8 knots and he was able to ride upwind really well. He is on the lighter end as far as rider comparison and was using a 17m ozone when I saw him. No lawn is safe anymo...

Strapless jumping board for big guy?

Anyone have any experience or recommend a good solid strapless board that will survive jumps from a big guy? 225lb 6'6" I rented an older cabrinha trigger on maui and it seemed sturdy so was thinking about a 2012 or 2013 cabrinha board, maybe the subwoofer? I'll probably be mostly in chop to head hi...

Re: All Around Directional for Small Waves and light to med

+1 to get a cheap used board. I got a Tokoro 6'6"x20.5"x2 5/8 big guy board with a pretty flat rocker, had extra glass, for $100, it is still going, used it about 9 months. There is a lot to learn on surfboard, gybe to toeside, switching feet before and after the gybe, tacking. After learning some o...

Re: maui(north shore) windguru

I went around mid august as well, was out on an 8m and surfboard, I'm 230lbs, forecasts were light. After a while I notice I'm 1 of about 3 kiters out, started getting worried they knew something I didn't, then I realized everyone went back in to switch to 5 and 6m kites, haha. Maui is definitely an...

Re: Race Boards Fins Down On The Beach

A windsurfer (probably not local because of where it was left) left their board on the beach, fin up, I personally saw a kite end up in a bad landing situation and get slashed by the fin, lucky it was just the kite. Just an observation, the solution varies for every situation.

Cab Trigger vs North X-Surf, anyone rent the X-Surf on Maui?

I'm 6'6" 230lbs and have been riding strapless on a double glassed surfboard made for heavy riders about 6-8 months. I want to start trying some jumps so I'd like to upgrade to a kitesurf board. I tried the Cabrinha Trigger 6'3" on Maui and liked it, but think I would like the North X-Surf better. D...
