Re: My first long swim

Glad to hear you are okay. I good knife is a must, having two, even better...EEZYCUTS are a great choice. Talking to a friend who recently had a long swim in side off conditions I had a crazy idea. I said in offshore winds why not wear a backpack with some flippers you could use to get back much fa...

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

I'm reviving this thread just to say that it really rubs me the wrong way that Starsky was kicked off the forum. SupaEZ too but especially Starsky. That guy had 4k+ posts to this forum. They ranged from helping beginners to deep dives on technique and gear and included taking measured swipes at som...

Re: Do I bother to get a 60cm mast?

I do know one thing, using the short mast on the sup wave wing is more energetic, dynamic, turns are quick, much more so than when using my 101 mast, I do believe after loads more practice in conditions that will help me to improve, then this will be my direction (when conditions allow)otherwise th...

Re: Ocean Rodeo: The Next Generation is now

NEW BRIDLE SYSTEM New to this generation are larks head loops on front bridles, and knots on the back lines. We've added this in conjunction to our 2 pulley front line re-ride system to make our kites more responsive and safer. The new line up looks great, congratulations! Great to see you starting...

Re: where can I get one of these?

That looks like a line stopper for your front line safety system? You can easily use just a ring and a stopper ball http://store.ryansproducts.com/rings2.html https://www.westmarine.com/buy/sea-sure--1-2-black-and-blue-stopper-ball--P002_065_006_026 The double ring is not needed. Just tie the trim l...

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

I'm not techno savy, what keeps someone from registering again under a different username? Really nothing but Toby would know simply by the IP if it was a banned user or likely a banned user. You would have to use a VPN to connect but that can also be detected by a smart admin. Other ways to know w...

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

Laughingman Do you think I keep those heavy personal attacks online on my site? I figured I would be able to find them in "flamers paradise" at least then I would have some context as to what happened. I know you try to be fair Toby, but I also know of others who have been banned or warned due to p...

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

I can't find anything that would suggest Starsky was banned. Can anyone confirm or deny? There are no posts after Oct 2017. And anything up till then was pretty tame for the most part. It was way worse a few years back... and when I say worse I mean better. He had a talent for calling out BS.

The speed of the site seems to have improved, but still very far from being a "fast" page.
Yep its better than it was but still a long way off what it was or what it should be. I am experiencing 5 -8 second page loads.

Re: Liquid Force Impulse review

I have the impulse wings and coming from the medium aspect wings to the impulse wings scared the crap out of me. These are definitely not beginner wings. I will try again in lower winds. You definitely need way less kite with these wings.
