Re: Kiteboarding since 1995 what do you see next for sport?

I don't think there is any genuine 'hate' for foil kites, lots of us have used them over the years, but everyone has to recognise the issues with wind sheers, and shifts, with tip curls, stalls, inverts and accidents down the years, I have difficulty forgetting one guy who shall remain nameless goin...

Re: Harnesses and ribs

I just don't get the resistance to seats. They work better, give you much better support , less chance of rib injuries, and a far more comfortable IMO. Yeah but they don't look as cool :lol: Especially if you want to rock the whole boardshorts over wetsuit look.. Which is exactly why we got Dakine ...

Re: 20 Years of Kiting!

Congrats on the 20 years, quite a few of the early guys didn't make it. Class of 99 me, inspired by a couple of locals who crossed the Channel using open cel ram airs, Flexi Blades. I'd met Cory Roesler in the Gorge back in 91-92 with his reel bar and delta kite waterski-ing, but the Gorge is a uniq...

Re: Core and German engineering meme

I have been following these "Core" threads hoping for an answer to one question. Why Core US has no spare parts in the US? And finally the answer according to CaptainCore, they can't afford to. Putting words in my mouth, nobody said they (Core) can't afford to, it's local dealers that would struggl...

Re: Core and German engineering meme

It's not a perfect system but at present it's all we in the Core distribution chain have. But certainly we in the UK have been slowly building a stock of items that wear, mainly it was the depower rope which is common across a few brands, we're still selling 2007 model depower rope for Slingshot ba...

Re: Core and German engineering meme

Once i was about to give the OK to launch my 5m2 Waroo w/ 10m lines on slippery wet grass and decided it was too dangerous and wanted to live another day. The wind was very strong with total white out rain squalls.The windsurfers were getting hammered but having fun on 3.5m2. Best estimate was 40-5...

Re: My grattitude extended to Toby

He's good but i also like Cptn Core's no bs approach... i prefer a bit of sarcasm and humour to the 'yes sir, no sir, have a nice day sir' while they tear the assh**e out your account! I find his posts quite entertaining on an otherwise pretty stale forum (foils not inc) :) Why thank you Slim ( hop...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

This thread started as I found I'm getting charged international shipping for a part that would have been covered under warranty and supplied locally. It probably would have if you'd returned it to your purchase source. It's standard contract law, your contract exists with the company that sold the...
