Re: [Beginner] Impact+Life vest advice?

Not extremely confortable in ocean sessions, I'm looking for something that would give some buoyancy when I'm ashore trying to relaunch my kite. And if it can protect me for the impacts it's a plus. I've found this NP Surf Rise vest https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81iMzYbzy8L._SL15...

Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

Either Brummel and don't stitch, or do a straight bury and stitch. Don't do both- Its a waste of your time... This. You're only stitching or using a brummell to stop the tail working its way out when the line isn't under load. Use a proper length bury and I'd bet it'd be impossible to have the tail...

All leashes are good in the beginning but after some time of use they become loose and the carabiner is exposed
I'm not bashing anything, but you can replace the shock cords in the covers.

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

Personal preference really. I ride Hyperlite systems and I love them. If I was to rock traditional boots I would probably go with the KTV/Shredtowns or a velcro binding. I really do not like laces. Too much of a pain when kiting and wake-boarding for me. yeah, i regret getting laces too, such a pai...

Re: Ride Engine 2018 Harnesses

I'm happy with the pu tube strap. ...Not baggin' on anyone or RE, but I've said it before - The strap and closure system is what's holding back the RE from being the end all kite harness. I have a Majestic X and I like it, but the RE had a better lumber and softer padding. If RE had the beefier str...

It still needs an actual latch mechanism for the spreader. I'm not the only person has had the PU tube type come undone unexpectedly...

Re: How to make a high Y bar ?

Splice a short length of line into your line to make a loop. Is that now how the manufacturers do it?

Re: Charleston Isle of Palms Questions?

You aren't supposed to ride north of 3rd block if I recall. People like to try and drown in the inlet, so be wary of the currents. There is a big bath area behind a sandbar just across the bridge on Sullivans but it can be a zoo. You may want to reach out to one of the local shops, like Force Wake a...

Re: Slingshot 2010 bar mod

Just get a clam cleat. I've done this many, many times. You basically want this: https://kiteboarding.com/proddetail.asp?prod=clamcleat You can find it for much cheaper. You should pay about 14$ usd for it (if you can't, PM me...I don't come here often but I have some spares, as an aside, I prefer t...
