Re: Where did stopper balls go?

I think there was some patent/licensing issue or somesuch, so they aren't included by default on the Naish bar. They do sell it separately ($10), and it works when you want it. I've never had an issue with it sliding down. I don't know about other brands though. In addition to allowing you to do sil...

Re: Traceup no longer working X3

I can confirm they're not defunct and still active and supporting it, but not currently producing more surf related products at the moment, thought not ruling it out in future. Got an answer within minutes of emailing them. Wow! what did you ask or say to them? As for me, they are definitely not su...

Re: Traceup no longer working X3

General consensus is that they went bust. Dealers can't order more, and support is dead. Everyone who I know had theirs last about 1 year before it stops working. Too bad, because it was a pretty cool product otherwise. I would probably have replaced mine. If yours still works or you can get your ha...

Re: Nobile NHP - what bindings purchase instead of original?

They're wrong. Or maybe they're talking about color matching or something less mechanical?

I have the NHP and very happily using it with the Naish Apex straps. I was able to try it and compare it several times with the stock Nobile straps (those hurt!) and with the Naish straps.

Re: proper etiquette

*there is no way this isn't going to sound weird... mince away. All of the above. This is uncharted social territory, and there are probably plenty legal issues (here in usa) that can make it easier to say no. If someone is geared up and can demonstrate competence (ideally has been at the location a...

Re: Naish Park/Dash - like kite but not Naish?

I also come from riding the park range and am curious about similar feeling kites. (RPM, Dice +?) I also had an octopus connection go bad on my least used 2012 kite. After taking it apart and putting it back together far too many times (finally got good at that), I still couldn't get the seal to hol...

Re: Great video from Zian rider Zac Andrews

Loving the full range and some of the crashes along the way. Especially digging the front roll to darkslides (Maybe there's another name for that) at 0:39. and 2:18
Any chance for non facebook video link?

Re: What's the worst thing about kite surfing?

Getting skunked. the only thing worse than getting skunked at home is traveling to beautiful exotic locations and getting skunked there add to that getting 'wet skunked' - where you give it a go despite knowing it's not enough and you only get one or two tacks in before having to pack it in, of cou...

Re: below the bar trim

Go downwind to take some tension off. If you're so overpowered that you can't hold an edge, sit down and put the kite to the water at the edge of the window. If you still can't pull the trim then yeah, problems. My issue with above the bar trim is that I can't easily reach it, or it's gotten wrapped...

Re: Video: Grabs every kiteboarder needs to know: Part One

Nice video with some good tips - practice the grab on land to figure out how and where. Some grabs will add some rotation as you reach and twist your shoulders. I'd like the video more if it didn't just show the same clip a bunch of times of a much more complicated grab, but rather showed what he's ...
