Re: How long do your TT boards last?

lol dude how are your knees?[/quote] Still holding up lol. Funny how I can drop like a rock on a kiteloop gone bad and feel no pain but when walking I can tweak my knees with a slight twist! Boards take a beating when you're 220lbs. :duh:[/quote] Those bad landings on a CF raptor pro made me sell th...

Re: Best brand for semi-clear sail tape?

The stuff from Bainbridge that they sell at West Marine is OK for small holes in the field of the kite, not the LE. But anything bigger should be stitched, IMO.

Re: Anyone else riding their motorcycle to go kiting?

Bought this beat up F650 6 months ago, and it came with a home made surf rack. It's kinda goofy, and drags on the ground if I corner too hard to the right, but damn, it actually works pretty well. Fun to use too. The front rack is clamped to the engine crash bars, and the rear section just clamps o...

Re: Kitemare need help.

All great advice above. :thumb: I would add to this- The only 100% depower on any kite is the deflate plug. (which you should never do out on the water unless absolutely necessary.) Try to be on the upcurrent side of the lines in the water and keep lines away from you at all times. Make sure you're...

Re: Advice on being kiteboard gear dealer?

[quote="Coloradokiter"]I too will agree that Graeme is spot on. I teach AND work for a shop and the retail side does not do much for us. The internet sales kill us, especially the closeout sales. Someone/Shop will pony up a lot of money to buy out the season end deals from the importer and then turn...

Re: Best non-foil light wind board; directional or twin tip?

Revisiting my Cabrinha 183 raceboard for light wind. I haven't tried it back to back with the Sector 60 but I think it is more efficient.

Re: kiteboard size

There are some small foot straps out there on used boards, I bought one that had straps too small for my size 11 feet. 13 might be pushing the limit on many straps especially if you have to wear booties. Hard for me to say what size would be ideal for you, I'm about 80 kg and ride a 132 x 41 in wind...

Re: kiteboard size

134 would be too small for your weight in moderate wind especially as a beginner. A bigger board will be useful in the future as a light wind board.

Re: Why you should avoid self launch when you can?

You could attach a hook to any of the rocks - but there would be no where to walk the kite. You couldn't walk it out into the river because it gets deep and there is a strong current just in front of that big rock. You couldn't walk it up onto land because the rock wall and bushes in front of the gr...
