Re: Pattaya, Thailand in September - October ?

Not kite related, but I have to say Pattaya was one of the worst places I stayed in Thailand.

Re: GoPro Session Waterproof enough for kite impacts?

Do you need to put silicone grease on your door gasket regularly?

GoPro Session Waterproof enough for kite impacts?

I just wanted to get some more opinions on people using GoPro Session for kite video, as 10m depth rating is a bit on the light side of things for the speed we kiters impact the water. This thread has a couple accounts: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2393954&p=947383 I have literally u...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

I wear gloves when kiting 100% of the time due to my girly hands. Either 3/4 finger gloves or full finger gloves with the tip of the index and thumb cut off.

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

The dakine cold water mitt are very nice because the palm is not thick material it's thin, which means you don't wear out your forearms by gripping the bar.

Re: [Beginner] Impact+Life vest advice?

If you wear a waist harness get the Dakine Surface or LF Supreme vests.

Re: Wear on surf bootie sole

I buy $10 knock off crocs 2 sizes too big and wear them over my booties until I'm about to hit the water. The still wont last forever, but they will last a lot longer.

Tona Pop
The Tona Pop is one of the few boards that do well in both disciplines, even if it's not idea at the park it's still a great kiteboard.

At 0:29 and 0:54. Seals? River Otters? :o
Honestly it's probably just Bull Kelp, there is a ton of it at some of the kite spots in Victoria where Reece is from.

There are also Seals, Sealions and Otters too, but that just looked like kelp.

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

The crowd clearly thought the kiter had the right of way as they all started yelling "hey puta!" once the surfer dropped in on him.
