TRX suspension Workout for Kitesurfing

Since kitesurfers like it small and portable an TRX looks good and inexpensive. I wonder if an experienced Trainer has put together an workout specific for our sport, to keep us fit through the low wind weekends season. At my advanced age I really dont like any other sport, spend 1 or 2 weeks waitin...

How does the simulator software avaliable c...

Re: Slingshot Tyrant 6'2' finbox Fix

Some say I have to remove the box completely....

Slingshot Tyrant 6'2' finbox Fix

Great shape for a 220 pound guy, very light, coming from a windsurf background I am suspicious of light, after using twice and ALWAYS removing the fins for packing, I noticed bubles and the cracked finbox-board junction.
