Re: North bag zips complete sh*t!

Kite bags? Kites should come in a simple stuff sack with a draw string, that is light weight & easy to get the kite in & out of. A heavier duty back pack that is larger & capable of holding (at least) two kites, bars, pump & other accessories is an additional item that perhaps should be sold separat...

Re: Modern wave kite

Why bother with anything else if you got a Mercedes? You don’t have first hand knowledge of any of these kites either... you are an internet junkie with insufficient education and a dweeb at that. You history is incorrect! Nobody abandoned boosters as you erroneously suggested (you didn’t do your i...

Re: Best bankrupt?

The story that fits is that the Legaignoux brothers wanted nothing to do with being a kiteboarding manufacture. They just wanted to license others to produce, sell, and have the liability associated with kiteboarding. The Legaignoux brothers wanted nothing to do with running a company. They just wa...

Re: Modern wave kite

Yes, pretty much every wave kite is going to be significantly different from your revs. Those were a classic Waroo style 5 strut all rounder from the days before delta kites. They were higher aspect, as the fashion at the time was more air than wave. They will pull too hard and drift poorly compare...

Re: Best bankrupt?

I'm sorry: are you saying that Best purchased the rights to the patent (& patent royalties) from Bruno? How long did Bruno's patent run & which companies actually paid royalties? I know ... it's a complicated history much discussed in the past, but is there any clear information on this? I actually...

Re: Advice - Don't crash with the board on your feet

Is that Napeague Jerome? How deep is the water under you in that pic? I know there are times at Hatteras where I have found myself boosting in really shallow water - it's a temptation because the surface is so smooth - but screwing a jump up in <20 cm of water could be pretty nasty.

Re: Advice - Don't crash with the board on your feet

I would add: make sure there's nobody downwind that's going to be clobbered by the released board ...

Re: I hate the wmfg pump

The WMFG pump is emblematic of the problem with a lot of new kitesurfing gear: a significantly improved design with one basic, simple flaw - the hose as originally supplied was too stiff causing the pump to "unscrew" itself. You'd think this would have been caught in pre-production testing ... but a...
