Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

i dont hate the olympics, but they leave a lot to be desired when it comes to their published values and what they actually do. In this case, afforability, 3rd world participation, 50/50 gender split. You left out GAISF They are responsible for deciding what sports are are governed by whom. Kiteboar...

Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

kitesurfing offers the opportunity of a lot of performance without this kind of excessive expense that parents have to pick up. i dont support any sports that are equipment performance dependent, where the costs involved are a huge barrier to participation for youth and where we will see only the pr...

Re: How can I repair a waveboard that was run-over by a car?

Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Kiteboarding self determination is the answer ( self governance), as it always was.

Then we wont need to have classist arguments over whether $16 000 is cheap by comparing to another sport... sailing.

Re: World Sailing AGM confirms Kiteboarding for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

4 registered Enata kites and a foil and board $16 000 US What a bunch of absolute kooks, destroying opportunities for affordable sport. The comparison to skateboarding of the equipment as an urban sport is absolutely sickening and an insult. Just as I said all along, they talk talk talk... affordabl...

leash plugs are not difficult to install.. that is if you need one at all.. a km out cross off reef riding i would use one but on/ side shore riding small medium wave i would never bother unless some stupid rips as i dont like the board to smack back into my head.

Re: How can I repair a waveboard that was run-over by a car?

cut out the damage, glue a block of foam in place ( probably polystyrene). shape it and fair it.. glass with decent overlap (70mm) it is probably polystyrene so use epoxy, polyester resin will melt polystyrene. as for the bamboo.. i wouldnt worry about that too much.. id almost be tempted to glue a ...
