Re: King of The Air: Finals Video

You are right on. Hard to squabble too much about the results when the scored moves are unknown and potentially done off the cameras coverage. As awesome as this event is there is room for improvement: 4 riders at a time?!? very difficult to see all the action for judges. You would hope there would ...

Re: Wake style board recommendation

If you can consistently stay upwind you are ready for boots if you want to ride 'em. They can be a pain in the ass early on but if you commit and stick with them for a dozen sessions or so there is no going back. Riding a board with nice rocker and some flex coupled with boots feels so much easier o...

Re: Boots for Free Ride?

EDT, I think it was perserverence towards the goal of landing the mobe that drove him.

I'd ask you why you would tomahawk your kite, blow a bladder, fix it with random available materials, just to repeat the tomahawk again 12 times in a row? You cant land a tomahawk. :)

Lk McConaughy, NE

So I'm driving on I-80 bound for Denver and the trees are shaking, forecast is 20-30 nnw, thinkin bout stopping for a lake Mac session. How does northerly work there? I rode it years ago on a south but I know I'd have to choose a different launch for N.

What is camping situation?

Thanks!

Re: Size of the North Gambler?

I have been riding the Gambler for a few weeks now. I weigh 215 lbs / 97 kg. I have been riding wake shaped boards for the last few years in the 144 and 142 sizes. I would have ordered the 142 Gambler but through a twist of fate I wound up with the 139 and am very happy with it. it is very light (an...

Re: Big Horns 11.7.2011...Nice Snow Slide Sequence!

Wow, great pics! ! I made it up there on Friday the 11th and wondered about that slide up there. had an unreal day sessioning in good 13m wind with another crew from Bozeman/BigSky and some Billings locals. Ive been snowkiting for years but only on flat land and a few small hills. Man, kiting up aro...
