Re: Duotone Jaime Textreme - Performance Freestyle

I rode it last week and loved it. Much better than last years. Still is pretty playful and feels agile on the water but has a bit more grip. What I noticed about the board is its pop which is extremely impressive.

Re: Extreme Kitesurf Accidents

The one immediately followings Toby's, right about the 2:10 mark...who would you say is at fault? To me, the upwind rider (the one wearing the camera) is at fault. His kite should have been much higher, high enough for the other guy to pass under.

Re: PSA: Check your harness - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

That means the side that stays fastened almost always stays cinched to the same spot, thereby rubbing the same location always. It's only a matter of time before it breaks. Now, I loosen all the straps (whether 2 on Ride Engine or 4 on Dakine (Ion, etc...) and have stopped having that problem. This...

Re: PSA: Check your harness - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

If you watch Antons videos - 'learning to Fly', he goes into all the wear areas he has identified on harnesses over the years. Its not just the wear at the clip. He mentions wear and failure at the point the straps are stitched into the harness. Possibly worth buying Episode 2 of the series just fo...

Re: PSA: CHECK YOUR HARNESS - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

Hey, Lindsey. Sorry to hear about your friend. This is a good reminder to check all gear periodically. Thanks for that. I've had harness straps and spreader bar hooks break at the peak of a boost, but I've always managed to "crash gently". If a strap breaks on one side, you're usually supported by ...

PSA: Check your harness - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

Greetings all, A good friend got really lucky on Monday when then webbing on his harness snapped while he was at the summit point on a boost. The wind was about 35mph and he was pretty high up. He landed in about 4 feet of water and hit the bottom. He's recovering now with a minor concussion and but...

Re: 5th line on the click bar question

Click bar is compatible with loaded 5th line and in fact solves the untidy looking 5th line droop that you get with the older bar style. I seem to remember DanAtB&M saying the only point of difference was that it released to a front line rather than the 5th line so in high wind conditions you might...

5th line on the click bar question

Greetings all, I'm thinking about picking up a 2017 Rebel just to have in my quiver. I will need to get a 5th line bar but definitely want a click bar. Does anyone know if the click bar does support a "loaded" 5th line and that it treats a 5th line no different than a 5th line trust bar? I'm assumin...

Re: Harness Position

Waist harness should be around your waist (convenient name) I like to have it as tight as humanly possible to try and stop it riding up. IDK if this is the generally accepted "correct" method or not. I'm pretty sure this is what most people do, but at some point I started keeping it slightly looser...
