Re: Sohlquist Shift vs Ocean Rodeo Ignite Drysuits?

Hey Soda, where in NFLD are you? I'm heading to Botwood for a week over Christmas and was considering bringing gear. I kited a couple times last summer on the Bay of Exploits, but heard some of the lakes get steadier wind. The Soul is an amazing suit, I use mine for kiting and whitewater. The suspen...

Re: Kite surfboards

Awesome boards Tom! Your lamination looks so perfect - any tips for doing thin rails? I had trouble getting all the gaps out from between the board and the rail on my cedar skimboard. It looks like you tape around the rail before laminating each side, then score the glass when tacky to remove excess...

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Blake, Beautiful Board! Great idea flipping the strips 90 to apply glue with a roller - wish I had seen it before I built my cedar skimboard. I biscuit joined mine - probably overkill but made alignment easy. My skim's shape concept was somewhat similar to your bottom shape - influenced by the mako ...

Lost Zeeko hydrofoil at Presqu'ile Beach in Ontario - 13 Dec

I am an idiot... went out today in offshore winds about 12 kts. Knew it wouldn't end well but the desperation to try my new foil was too strong! I'm heading to the in-laws on Saturday and figured it might be my last chance before the spring. Hit a total lull and had to self rescue... now my new foil...

Re: Liquid force solo vs BRM cloud (12m) for hydrofoil

My 12m flite flies and relaunches in very light conditions. Looks like zeeko is also coming out with a foil specific inflatable so might be worth waiting for that if your bandit is doing the job for now.

Re: Kiting around Venezuela

Adicora was very inexpensive and had some beautiful kiting - especially this lagoon called matagorda. There are a couple islands that are apparently great as well. Not sure what the current political situation is though... something you need to look into before going. I went with Marty who is an awe...

Re: Best inexpensive drysuit?

I agree with the above - cheap, leaky gear is a pain. I've went the cheaper route in the past for whitewater kayaking and regretted it. Really love my ocean rodeo soul and did a video review below. During a solo session on Tuesday I was very grateful for the relief zipper - probably too much morning...

Kiting and camping NE coast Austrailia in Oct

Hey guys, I am traveling to Sydney, Austrailia on 24 Sep for a week of work, and have extended my travel until 12 Oct to take advantage of the opportunity. Tentative plan is to travel north from Sydney up the coast to kite a couple different locations. My preference is medium waves. I'd like to keep...

Re: Chinese Kite Surfing Products

While you're at it guys please tell me if climate change will increase wind at my local spot. And don't even think about bringing up global weather patterns. Be advised any other rationale you provide will also be met with hostility.
