My terrible description of what I am envisioning: 1. a spool integrated into the ki...

Do you have the locking teeth ? :

You will need to use this, along with a longer screw that you'll have to buy at the hardware store. It will work.

Re: PKRA Pingtan - What The Shame!

I think Toby has an excellent point. Some would call it "politics", but judging is subjective and this is just an example of differing perspectives. Clearly everyone wants to be the winner ;) Judging, has it ever been fair? Specially when scores differ 0.5 etc ? Personal taste plays a part of it. Is...

Re: Greg of BRM in my hone spot!

I've had the pleasure of meeting Greg, too. He has an incredible story about how he came to start BRM.

Re: Global winds...getting less?

that's scary but i'd like to see the analysis done with the same year-span. The first two spans are averages over 10 years, and the last one is approximately ~3.5 years. I think they should all be broken down into 4 year averages.

Re: Pimped my bar!

i cut the old grip off. A thick bar is much harder to hold onto unhooking. Yea I agree and I'm hesitant to do this to my bar for this reason- even though it would be really nice to have an updated grip. On the other hand I think a thicker bar is more ergonomic for individuals with carpal tunnel syn...

Re: Safety Response Reflex for riding into or rolling into l

I had to reply because this happens too often when riding powered and with speed while keeping your kite low during wake style tricks. A big danger is that I am often leashed suicide. My instinct when this happens, because this has gone horribly wrong before, is to immediately check that my bar ends...
