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 ...

Re: Review Flysurfer Peak3. Does Skateboarding have a future?

The single skin kites like the Peak look ideal for skateboarding. It must pack down super small for the skate home. Just use shorter lines. I have flown with the bar hooked right to the bridle (no lines). Flexboard with kite on short lines and paraskiflex bar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwdxSWpN...

Re: Slingshot Foil Kite (is it really an Elf?)

Plus peter lynn has a kite called the phantom. Is it me or are some companies just jumping on the band wagon with little thought to any of it? First north with a gross city skyline design and named the same as a Pansh kite the Ace. Now slingshot with aweful graphics and no original name. http://www...

Re: Serious crash

The Core chickenloop has worked flawlessly every time for me. It was not much of a transition from a push away to the twist release too. I do open and close it frequently though to attach /remove it from my rope harness. Never jammed or froze. No accidental releases. Always reseased if needed. Can b...

Re: Bad Kiteboarding Crash - When your board gets into the lines

Since he has all his weight locked onto the bar has he not effectively bypassed both safeties?? Even if he tries to flag out, the bar has nowhere to go. Even if he bails the kite, he is still attached to the bar with all his weight. He would need to ditch his board. Am I wrong?.

Re: Anyone ride both Firewire Vanguard vs. OR Duke?

My all time favorite board is currently a 2016 North 5'2 Whip. It's a Vanguard lookalike. Very smooth. Super fun. I had the opportunity last fall to ride it back to back against the OR 5'6 Duke in thruster mode. The Duke was way smoother. However, it also felt slower like it needed more wind or more...
