Re: Something new from Ozone

That paraglider looks really clean, I can't even see the intake holes in the leading edge. ????? I know nothing about paragliders.....isn't there something where it rams the air in? I see how with so many cells it makes the "pillow" effect go away. Is that an Ozone?

Re: Moving the rear strap forward on a directional

All cutbacks feel slow to me when I'm attached to a kite. That is because your turn needs to swing around with the kite, and kites turn pretty slow compared to say, Rob or Kelly hacking a big hard gouge out of it. Compared to that, all my kite surfboard turns are more like Grandma. I hate straps, mo...

Re: Something new from Ozone

The concept of a kite that doesn't need a pump is good for coastal and mountain exploration. And those who glide might be a tad safer up high (someday when kites are tubeless, it does look more like a paraglider.) Also the design makes a more clean and rigid looking foil profile, despite the pillow ...

Re: Almost there, helmet cont.

Plummet asked: ' Have you considered that there may need to be a certain amount of flex in the helmet to absorb the impact? Super stiff may transfer the force rather than absorb it?' I wondered the same thing, and it needs some foam sandwich core to crush under this bulletproof (amazing!) skin. Mayb...

Re: Riding waves backside....

If all the BM posts could be deleted from this thread, there was quite a bit of useful, fun, amazing, interesting material in here. Thanks to all the non-BM contributors for the info. Good point, snap off all the BM's and it's a great read. I notice that there is a sewage treatment plant right on t...

Re: Kiting Fatality Paracuru?

Hate to say this but: once you get your ankle wrapped and the kite powers up, there is no way you can jacknife your torso to reach your ankle. It's physically impossible. some of us surfers know this from getting our board leash snagged on the reef. In surf, there may be one short chance when the su...

Re: Pacasmayo waves - Windsurfers have priority???

I see the windsurfers struggling in light wind. When he/she does get up and into one I am sort of elated the ya finally got on the spot, and I back right off for them to go. "Go for ya' life!" There will be another one for me in a minute or two....Thanks Jake Moore for that very good point.

Re: Pacasmayo waves - Windsurfers have priority???

I say first in best dressed!!... If you there first then take the break an use it. Anyone else that comes in does so knowing you are there first. What if some guy had surfed the place for 30 years. Paid his dues. Slammed on the bottom, all those hours. Then he waits an hour for his wave. Along come...
