Re: Cape Hatteras has a new island!

Didn't an experienced kiter go missing in that area back in 2011? Last seen near Cape Point just 30 feet from shore in distress and without his kite and board?

Re: Don't show us your hook

Nothing wrong with replacing the chicken loop with a shackle. But that style will bind under load (i.e. semi flagged death looping kite). Seen it and experienced it myself both as chickenloop and on kite leash. Needed all the strength in both arms to release it. Took longer than needed in an emergen...

Re: Peter Lynn Hornet 2.0m sucks!

Just to confirm your line connection is correct. Front lines are your steering lines they go to the ends of the bar. Rear lines to the center. It's not a depower strap. It's a trim strap used to trim your rear lines (i.e. compensate for front line stretch). The rear lines shouldn't be too slack (poo...

Re: Shark attacks foil

Perhaps some anti shark camo is in order. ☺ https://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&source=hp&ei=vh0IWeepB4zqjwT6qoGQBQ&q=images%3A+camo+anti+shark+wetsuit&oq=&gs_l=mobile-gws-img.1.2.35i39k1l3.0.0.0.6433.2.1.1.0.0.0.0.0..0.0....0...1c..64.mobile-gws-img..1.1.33.3.0JhMfnttk7U#tbm=isch&q=camo+an...

Re: How to post a found board in OBX

Does the board look like it's been in the elements for awhile? A buddy lost a Duuk brand light wind board on a downwinder from Planet to Salvo last April. Has a dog taking a crap for a logo.

He's there right now until Saturday.

Re: Directional boards for getting started

I think those old directionals are responsible for much of the bad rep footstrap use has today. There were so many boards that I tried back then that felt like the straps were in the totally wrong spot. Riding them felt awkward as hell and there was was rarely enough adjustment to make it right. My ...

Re: Prescription sunglasses

No need to pay a fortune for prescription sunglasses. Get them for next to nothing from Zenni Optical. Pick one of these 7$ frames: http://www.zennioptical.com/u6.95-glasses/Rim-Full-Rim/Material-Acetate-Plastic/Gender-Men/_/N-1501761571+2114006017+1341992444 Add tinted lens, and AR coating (option...

Re: Hatteras Camping Options

I've gone there for the last 2 weeks of April every year since 2007. Not camping but house rental. Best bang for the buck before the rates start to climb May 1st. Generally, the first week can be cooler and the 2nd week it's warmer. North winds colder, South winds warmer. Even in North winds it can ...
