Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

We don't get waves in light winds, so the foilboard wins hands down. The foilboard adds new challenges, sensations and excitement that a light wind surfboard, or big TT's and Raceboards don't for me. The doorboards and raceboards had their day, time to move on.

Re: Gasping for breath after crash?! Breathing how to?

My guess is that you're not breathing properly to start with, probably holding your breath during (relatively) long periods of concentration. To break this habit you should consciously focus on regular breathing throughout your sessions - after a while it will become second nature. This. I have to ...

Re: Directional footstraps ?

Dakine Primo and the JP are nice basic cushy straps. But really like the North straps now. Good combo of padding and width for support that still lets me twist my foot easily without binding up my toes like wide or asymetrical straps can. Still lets me center my rear foot across the board. The North...

Re: Calling cold water kiters! - Glove me.

Hey men, I'm looking for advice on some as thin as possible, precurved gloves. They don't need to be the warmest but they have to be thin, I get really bad arm pump otherwise! What do you have / recommend? Thanking you in advance! Define your idea of "COLD". For me, 2mm gloves are pointless. Thats ...

Re: Who is this guy? Video from 2002.

I thought kite pants were more function over fashion. Guys wore them to protect flesh and neoprene from abrasions when getting dragged across the beach after hot launching there Blades. 😂😎

Re: How to flush sand out of a foil kite.

I used to inflate my foil with a fan and had it hanging under a ceiling fan. Keeping the air moving inside and out dries it in a fraction of the time.

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

We have guys that paddle out into our waves too. They get some nice rides but looks like way too much work for me.🤣

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

My home spots are on the 10th largest fresh water lake in the world. The best waves happen when the wind is pretty much blowing straight onshore. They only setup in the shore break and further out is mostly just chop. Waves come in steep, fast and close together. They don't have the same energy as e...
