Re: Bindings do not fit stock spacings

Ah okay, will this work on any board or just LF? maybe. Depends on the bindings. Measure your inserts. there's other retrofit kits out there if the LF ones aren't right. The standard (modern) spacing is 6 inches and usually old bindings were 6.5 inches but sometimes 7 inches or 8 inches. Right okay...

Bindings do not fit stock spacings

Hi guys, Perhaps not the right forum for this but I'm guessing you guys have alot of knowledge in this area. I picked up a wood core wakeboard in mint condition from 2009, hyperlite roam, that does not fit modern bindings as the inserts have the wrong spacing. I am going to get some new boots soon w...

Hyperlite Sizing

Hi guys,

Had 2011 system bindings in size 9 as this is my shoe size, but they were far too tight.

Looking to buy some 2014-15 new ones instead, has the sizing become more realistic nowadays?

Thanks

2010 fuel 9m as first C kite

Hey guys, Been riding for almost 3 years and having really fun time with all sorts of boards on primarily my cabrinha switchblade 10m from 2011. I'd like to get into riding my boots more and with more loops etc. I've got the opportunity to get this kite at a good price, how does it compare with the ...

Re: LF Element vs Echo

I've been on the element and was it lent it by a gu who rides both.

Basically from what I've heard: Echo is more wakestyle orientated, (bigger pop more rocker, needs more power not so good in chop), but both nice board.

Re: Can I use a big bar on a small kite?

"I was kitesurfing in some small waves, and after a bail the kite ended up being tumbled into an unlaunchable position.

Re: Can I use a big bar on a small kite?

Well wow. My feeling towards Switch and that bar are hopefully well known and I will make no further comment :) PS: I don't understand how it bent like that(I'm not saying you do). Not even a 2 point windsurfing harness line would do that. I'm not completely sure either :( , honestly I was more foc...
