Re: Help - Purchased Old Kite - Does it need bridles?

You should buy a Slingshot Link bridle for that kite. Those are the best around. :thumb: (I'm just kidding man, you'd kill yourself. Seriously, get a lesson. On their gear. Then maybe another one on your gear, but either way have the instructor look it over and see you out on your first session with...

If you have to ask a question like that then you should probably return it and take a lesson first before buying gear sight unseen.
Agreed.

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Very cool, nice to see another manufacturer appreciating an innovative design and licensing it instead of copying it. :thumb: I know BWS always appreciated a simple bar with no extra bits to distract in the surf, so this seems like a great fit being that it's such a clean looking bar. (no trim strap...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Sweet pics, guys. Thanks for sharing! Nice to see the powder at LH and Crystal.

I got a snowkiting day with J.Regan out East. Was a load of fun. He's had several days on lakes and fields in his neck of the woods. I'm thinking of going to the Wyoming Lodge in February for some kiting. We'll see...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

...Btw, did you know the gopro 5, gopro 5 Session and gopro 6 all include IMU data stream directly in their MP4 files ? For example the gopro 5 session writes 400Hz 3-axis gyros data and 200Hz 3-axis accelerometer data in the MP4 files it produces. Theoretically, you don't need any additional IMU b...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Shot some footage with the revl this weekend. Still definitely needs some work on the stabilization and leveling, but fairly watchable and not too complicated. This is with a bit of post stabilization with mercalli software Thanks for sharing that, looks like a fun day! The image quality is kind of...

Re: Toby Braeuer Interview

Thanks again Toby.. I have lots of great feedback already ) Great to see a new kite specific podcast! I haven't listened to one (or knew there was one) since Ryan Riccitelli did dozens of them for The Kiteboarder years ago. The sound quality of his were usually complete shit, to the point that you ...

Re: Cool snowkiting pictures

I got out with @rvrrat last week in south western PA. I don't know what constitutes a cool photo, but we had a blast and it was friggin' cool out! (single digits and well below zero with the wind chill) Here's are some shots of a great afternoon; 8M SST https://media.fotki.com/2v2J2CSfdxvn42L.jpg Fu...

Compact Gimbal for snowkiting video?

Does anyone have a compact 3 axis gimbal they recommend for filming snowkiting? Preferably something you can attach a GoPro to, or else it includes a camera at least as good. (some of the small cameras take really crappy video, even though they are 4K - looking for crispness and color accuracy). @wa...

Re: Slingshot wave sst 2016 vs 2017

Another question for you SST users...I've got a 2017 bar coming... 20" bar with 20m lines + 3m extensions. What do you all tend to fly your SSTs on? I know the theory behind shorter lines = more responsive but less power than longer lines. So what's best for the SST? I know it all depends on condit...
