Re: DSD Stallion 5'4 - anyone rode it?

I rode my buddies 5 2 the other day, lake chop and small waves, 25-35 kts (a couple of gusts into the 40s) Holy moly, I have to say I was really impressed with board. I have a bad knee so I'm sensitive to a board the bounces through chop, but this board was the boss. I think it's the smoothest surfb...

Re: where can I get Dyneema ribbon/webbing (like Airush load Frame)

I don't know where you can get it, but the material is called Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE, UHMW) so search for that. I can't help but think that any webbing you find is going to be massively over specced for use in a harness. Thanks! this is exactly what I was looking for. My p...

where can I get Dyneema ribbon/webbing (like Airush load Frame)

Hi Guys,

I'm building my own harness and looking for some super light and strong webbing I can sew myself.

Anyone know where I can get the type of Dyneema ribbon/webbing used the airush kites (used for the load frame)?

Aramid could work too.

Thanks

:rollgrin:

Re: Gopro studio - driving me crazy

Sorry for the late reply. (pretty late, but I've been working) Ok I'm officially getting nowhere with Gopro, I have to change my video editing software. I would use iMovie, but the big problem is I can't seem to rotate the original footage so I'm not upside down half the time. :angryfire: any soluti...

Gopro studio - driving me crazy

I'm working on a new kite video, and to date I've used Gopro studio to edit. However, I've somehow only realized that the quality of the video deteriorates when I convert the original video from the .mp4 file to the .avi file for editing. I've been trading emails with gopro client servicing that say...

Re: Long bar for waveriding

I love my bars on the larger setting for all kite sizes (wave riding or not), Airush smart bars, 62 cm I think. I always get guys kinda laughing at it. But I don't care I like it a lot, I find it easier to turn, more leverage and easier on my arms....you can kinda see how long my bar is..ha

Re: Surfing wind swells, what board?

Nice video! Great Sandbanks day today. 17 degrees in Nov. Feels like getting away with something! In good wind, your right, most are on pretty small standard shortboards, but once it drops decidedly under 20 knots, you can have more fun on a small wave design. The shortboard is rideable, but it bog...

Re: Surfing wind swells, what board?

http://vimeo.com/144253937 http://www.vimeo.com/144253937 Our last day at Great lake Ontario -- Sandbanks. Wind swell and awesome. We all use various version of shortboards. Control speed super well and can whip it around pretty good. I find that any surfboard that is too wide and thick bounces when...

Re: Sufboard size -- how small can I go?

there are so many things that go into a choice like this it is almost impossible to answer. i can tell you at 75 kg i ride everything from a 5'10" x 173/4" to a 5'2"x 18" and love them all for different types of riding. In general, smaller and a bit wider and flatter for powered up craziness and lo...
