Re: fuselage fabrication

Re: According to Google Trends, kiteboarding is declining in popularity

Ummm

Lets face it, the new gear is waaaay to expensive.

I live in the Oz (yep it is really that good), and bless this country for a 2nd hand gear.

The good news is that more people are calling it kitesurfing rather than kiteboarding :wink:
If u riding waves, u surfing. If not, u boarding.

Re: DIY bar strength?

^ Uhm,that mighthappen to any bar. I mean, look at Nico, #1 racer and his bar. Just a carbon tube. And man, that guy can jump. My next bar will be a carbon tube, ultra light. I would rather be hit with an UL bar into my eye than any other bar. As I was. And, a carbon tube will float if closed right....

Performance? With that outline?

God, more and more I love my DIY board :) Knowing I've spent $30-40 was the best decision ever :)
