Re: Damaged ribs = Seat harness....help

Bob,
Sorry to hear about the ribs.
I've been using the ION B2 board shorts and they've been really good about not jamming the jewels or riding up wedgie style.

Re: Hand-held vacuum cleaner for inflation

What I use is an older version of this Coleman Rechareable Pump https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Rechargeable-Quick-Pump-Colors/dp/B00005JD40 I think I paid $20 for it off of eBay. I see it in stores for $30. It works pretty quickly. I inflate through the deflate valve, then finish off with the pump. ...

Re: 2017 King of Great Lakes Test Fest

Toby, is personal equipment allowed, or is the the area reserved for testers only?

Re: Self-Rescue: The big problem with Ram airs

Just a word to those riding the inflatables: always pinch your struts off! It does no good to have a kite that can self rescue if you pop a valve and the entire kite turns into a laundry bag. I think maybe 90% of the kiters out there never in their life pinched a strut off. Too much effort? I dunno...

Re: Kite sizes beginner's question

I'm about the same weight and I have to agree with you. I have a 7-10-13.5-17 quiver. 7-Blade Trigger 10-LF NRG 13.5-Best Kahoona 17-Blade Fat Lady. In our area, we get a lot of 13-20 mph days that my Fat lady is very happy in. If the wind is more consistent, 18-22, then my 13.5 is more comfortable ...

Re: Which 18 meters foil kite would drift launch and float the most .

Pansch also has a Lotus cloth equivalent. I have that in a 22m Aurora 2 which flys well. Last time I had it out, the wind died and it sat on the water for at least five minutes before it came up again. It relaunched to problem. Pansch quality control is reportedly a bit sketchy, but you can't beat t...

Re: Car damaged by kiteboarder - any lawyers on here to answer my Q?

Dang, did this happen at Metro? You're right about keeping the car out of the line of fire. I'll need to be more aware that.

Re: Lightwind Kite recommendations (Big guy)

I have the 2015 Fat Lady and love it. I'm 215lb and use it with all three of my boards, (164 Spleen, Mako King, and 148 Vanguard). It's my goto kite most of the time out here in the Detroit area where it seems the winds are predominantly 12-20 when in the right direction. It has a nice wind range an...

Re: Twintip Advice for Heavy Rider

+1 on the Axis Vanguard. I have the 148 for low winds with either my 17m Fat Lady. I weight in at 215lb (before the holidays). I like the Vanguard so much I also got a 138 for higher winds.
