Re: New boots

I recently snapped one of my laces. Solution, I replaced it with kite line. I bet that one wont break any soon.

Re: Building a kicker.

For sure I'm placing the 2x4s vertical. For the top sheet I would like to coat or cover the plywood with some slippery matterial. Any suggestions of what could be use for doing so??

Re: Building a kicker.

There is a curve, otherwise is just a ramp and it won't give that final kick up that throws you up on the air.

Building a kicker.

I and some friends have decided to build a kicker. I pretty much have an idea of how to do it and have already designed the structure. I have a plywood plank 1/2inch thick for the top sheet.

Result, I tomahawked the kite and the cap poped up just enough to leak air out and lose presure. It see...
