Re: Directional footstraps ?

My board is not wide (4'10" x 18") & my feet aren't small.

Re: Who is this guy? Video from 2002.

Just found this old Takoon video was still on my hard drive. Featuring Franz Olry & Luciano at Cabarete in 2002 (it was discussed in a couple of threads on Kiteform back then). I just uploaded it on vimeo.

Re: Best bankrupt?

It is obvious that Best has made some really great kites, no question on this ! Their designer was known for being one of the best out in this industry...

Re: Calling cold water kiters! - Glove me.

I don't buy any gloves any more what are not precurved! I agree. I had, for many years, a pair of thin not pre-curved neoprene gloves. They were not that warm & caused forearm fatigue. I now have a pair of relatively thick gloves that are seriously pre-curved. They are very warm & create minimal fo...
