Re: Which brands of kitesurfing boards and considered the good ones?

Nowadays its less about brand and more about shape: Avoid wakestyle boards with massive rocker - as a beginner, this is a nightmare for you. Lately Ive been seeing the market for used boards flooded with older wakestyle boards from 2011-2014; I advise my students on gear purchase and I am not a deal...

Re: Need info for Epic Kites

As it so happens, I have a partially used stick of 5200 FC in a ziplock bag my freezer, only recently opened and immediately zip and frozen. Will try it thanks!

Need info for Epic Kites

Hey guys, I need some help with an old Epic Kite, a 2011 Epic Jr Pro 4m. Basically the kite is in good shape but the valves are delaminating. I am trying to figure out if I order via Airtime whether I use their OEM Valve Fix for Epic or the standard Valve Traps for valve repair. Surprisingly good ki...

Re: The end of kiteboarding in Florida?

This is a serious issue, far beyond the scope of simply kiteboarding. As others have stated, this leads to private properties roping off the beach toi beachgoers. I am stunned this law passed! Properties near the beach but not on the beach will suffer dramatically because of this and thats ALOT of r...

No kite pumps in CO

Wow, so I am in CO on a ski trip and am trying to find a pump as I did not pack one. There are no kite shops and in the winter all of the SUP shops put their stuff in storage. I am left with a local instructor charging $50 for an Ozone Mega Pump or waiting on amazon Prime to deliver a cheap double a...

Re: Poll: King of the Air 2018: Straps vs Boots?

You can put boots on any board but will crack it over the insert if its not reinforced for boots. Most reinforced boards are target at wakestyle. Not all are banana boards though - my Core Choice 2 is moderate on the rocker and it has held up nice to alot of pressure.In contrast, I cracked a Naish A...

Re: Megaloop Boardoff

Impressive, hope they include him; the judges are a clichy group that are not that into Big Air - they hate boardoffs because they are mostly PKRA style wakestylers (at least in prior years they were).

Re: Urgent kitesurfer community help needed !

Has anyone done the HW to verify all of this (internet scams are rough nowadays)? We could all send in 10 USD or 10 EUR, adds up quickly - but we meed someone with a long history on this board to do the homework

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

I have always wanted to try Systems for kiting. After a week on my Hyperlite Team OTs, I am loving them. Great performance, Ive been crushing the PIQ International leaderboard for over a week on them (hit number one two days ago :D, Maui for the win!). Major improvement over the Index. I like them b...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

Impossible to say altho in my case I have become a fan of five strut kites. I really wish North would just do a color change instead of reincenting the wherl; the 2017 Evo is awesome.
