Re: wakestyle or regular kiteboard?

Typically wakestyle boards are a little wide through the length of the board so there is more surface area at the tips. They also have less flex so it takes the boots to give you enough control to keep it all comfortable. You might find it hard to enjoy the board when well powered with straps.

Just a quick...

Re: Rank of Kite Brands based on sales and quality ???

I think it can be tough to really figure out as brand populatiry varies drastically by region. I would never even put north in the mix around here yet the other poster put them ahead by far! I would also never put ozone or even F-one ahead of naish. In truth I have no idea and can only go on what we...

Re: Offshore wind farm may wreck NE winds for the Outer Bank

The number of wind farms in the works around the great lakes is pretty staggering. You can almost tell by looking at the layout that there are gonna be unexpected downsides we will have the joy of learning about in years to come.

Re: How to make crail grab?

I understand what your trying, and the only way I can grab like that is to stay hooked in. Unhooked I get too stretched out.
