Re: Concave or Flat for Lakes

For Ontario's fresh water lakes with chop = Mako
Been riding Lake O for 15 years, always on a Mako. I've tried other boards, but always go back to the Mako.

Give Billy from Kite Passion a call, he can set you up.

Re: Kiting in Canada - Ottawa

Get a hold of Adrian from Drop Watersports, stand up guy and very knowledgeable.
Ottawa is great for kiting, right on the river in town.
Adrian can fill you in with all of the details.
Forecast looks decent, 10-17mph

Have fun

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge......this one sucks.

Can we get an update of the bridge construction from one of the locals? Just wondering how quickly this new bridge is being built? When I was there in May, there were bulldozers working in behind the Liberty already and a friends wife saw survey stakes out in the Sound just north of Mirlo when she w...

Re: How old is your oldest kite you still ride on?

2006 Ocean Rodeo Rise 12m Still going strong, and still somewhat crispy. Never had a single problem with it. Overall kite construction from OR is legendary...... built proof! No loose seams, no worn fabric, nothing wrong at all, even the zipper on the kitebag still works...LOL! By far the best kite ...

Re: Reasonably Priced KB Instruction in the OBX

By far the best instructor with the best set up is Captain Ty at KiteHatteras.net
He will have you up and riding quicker than anyone else in the OBX.
Safety is number one with him, he is a great instructor, and a nice guy to boot!

Re: Disrespectful French-Canadian's

To all, To put this to bed once and for all... Sam99, the next time you are in Hatteras, make a point of going to Buxton and go see Ty. Walk up to him, extent your right hand, look him in the eyes and say...Merci! That's all Ty wanted. Now everyone go out and get on the water and have some fun.....!...

Re: Concave questions

Concave works great!
Look at the Mako from Ocean Rodeo, they have been making it for over 10 years now....with concave!
Concave smooths out the chop.

My homebuilt board has concave and it rocks in chop!

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 10 Admire your work! I will leave things here for today, and let people respond with comments/questions etc. You can see the strips on the left that didn’t make it into a board blank, too many knots and I didn’t want to get into splicing sticks together to get rid of the knots. That is a Mako K...

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 9 Clamping Time for clamping the strips together to form your first board blank. As you can see I used bar clamps and utilized the fences on the edge and end of my workbench to help in keeping things nice a tight. One thing I want to stress to newbie board builders, DON”T over tighten the clamp...
