Re: Hidden Lines Chapter III now Live: Nitro City

Yes there was plenty of cool stuff in there. But a complete lack of respect for other people, whether staged or not, is not cool gentleman. Just because there are 'no rules' does not mean you have no moral and social obligations toward your fellow human being. We all think you are great anyway, but ...

Re: Two years IKO free

Oh yes forgot to mention, paid an initial $50 fee to IKO to register to become kite instructor. For this $50 i have received nothing in return but an email receipt of funds.

Re: Two years IKO free

Hmmm, was considering this route. Our local kite instructor is IKO level 2 certified, but to train me he was required to pay more fees to IKO. Then i was to pay fees as well. Seems like one big money grab, for pretty much ZIP in return after reading your above post. As my instructor pointed out, his...

Re: Importance of high end race fins

Is this NOT a good option?

Importance of high end race fins

Is it correct to assume that going fast is more about riding the fins properly?
If this assumption is correct, does that mean my board does not necessarily need to be top of the line, but more importantly that my fins are?

Positive comment on Airstyle Diary

Hi Toby, your latest posts images are classics. The image with the bikini girl in the foreground and you in the background was easy on the eyes, a well composed image. The following image of you being dragged along the beach with your board slightly behind is wonderful. It shows the rest of us your ...

How often do you use the release on the micro loop? And where is it situated? Can you post an image of your setup please. Thanks Toby.
