Re: The Ultimate Wetsuit !?

Rip curl flashbomb suits are amazing but expensive. I surf and kite in my 3/2 about 2-3x per week all year and no damage for past three years. If you add a 2mm neo hoody you can use a 3/2 all year for kiting down to 35*F water (but not surfing obviously).

Re: skimboard choice

Skim is amazing for super shallow water but for actual waves you want a surfboard.

My idea board is the Nobile Infinity Split Foil, great for travel, foiling, and decent surf

Re: Directional thoughts

You already have a 5'4" surfboard which is a great size. Bigger board won't really be any better.

If you want to have fun kiting in 11-13mph you need to learn to hydrofoil, which you should do ASAP!

Re: old fart round the world tour

I travel with a foil everywhere, you can just drill holes in your TT and put grip on top and mount it whenever and have a dual use board. Also, foils break down into very small package so no worry about bulky.
Or get one of the convertible boards by nobile

Re: Wash or not wash your kites

Ive been kiting for 17 years and never washed a kite or even heard of someone doing it. I guess if a bird pooped on it or you legitimately rolled it in mud you should rinse it. The only thing I am dogmatic about is to never store a kite more than a few days in the bag wet because I assume it would m...

Re: Expanding my quiver with Fuels

Since you are "more into freestyle and jumps": DO NOT GET A QUIVER OF FUELS.

Re: Expanding my quiver with Fuels

I used to own fuels in the 2000's, they are great if you are strict advanced wake-style, very niche kite.

Re: Remora Suction Foil Mount

This is genius! I will seriously buy one. You have the potential to steal much of the market from the FoilMount.

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

SURF and TT Review: 2018 9m ultra. 17-21 knots side-onshore wind, 2-3 foot waves, 80kg rider, 20m lines, jimmy lewis surfboard and then a crazyfly carbon TT. Very powerful for it's size, I was on the 9m and everyone else on 12ms (riding TT). Again it's a super fast kite and flies very close to edge ...
