Re: Unhooking leash options

What leashes are you using that you're destroying the QR system...that seems sketch as f***.

Heard the Ion unhooking ones are pretty burly.

Or go the DIY route. 1/2" Tubular climbing webbing + bungee cord + burly stainless steel carabiner + Ion/North QR + a lot of nylon stitching.

Re: North Pro Session Surf chop

I'm wanting to transition to a strapless surfboard and someone recommended a 2017 North Pro Session. Our conditions are more chop than waves. Will a Pro Session be good for chop or does anyone have other suggestions? I've been playing with a old 5'6" fish style surfboard which is fine in flat condi...

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

Every single Tomo I've ever gotten on. Vanguard: magic (rode it until I snapped the non kite rapidfire construction in half jumping it, it's now back together as my foil board) Vader: although my current one is a little too big, ridden the correct sized and it's magic. Pair it with some of FW fins ...

But if my kid? Wouldn’t be riding on the kiteboard in high wind/3m waves.
This, plus the kid on a leash on a groomer is way different. That'd be like taking your kid down a double black with an elevated avalanche danger.

What's a BW release?
I think he's talking about a bellow the bar cleat.

But bragging about the "smoothest action roller we've ever used" is a bunch of marketing bs. You don't need some really efficient pulley on a part that only rotates less than a foot ever.

Re: Nomad's concave molding technique

Are those saw horses "the same process used to build F1 cars" as your website claims? The manufacturing photo you just posted is less tech than some of the sketchy carbon knock off frames from China. Also working with people who have professionally worked with Mclaren, I can tell you that's not how ...
