Re: Crash vests, what do people use?

Decided to buy the ride engine kite specific crash vest. I like the center zip and the placement of the padding to help lock harness in.
They are sold out except for Small’s till the first week of June.

Re: Important Message: I almost died - Gunnar Biniasch

I’m happy to hear your ok! As a newer kiteboarder your event is also a huge fear of mine! One thing I just don’t get is why all wetsuits are black, crash vests are dark colors? As a big player in the industry I hope you can use your event to get kiteboard and wetsuit manufactures to consider using b...

Re: Winter wetsuit recommendations

I rock a Patagonia r4 wetsuit when combined temp is that low along with a spray top for wind break and love the cheap glacier gloves. They last for a wile but at $20 Idk if I trash them. And 5mm boots.

Re: Ride engine differences 16-17-18

Re: glass fiber or carbon?
