another worthless invention, at least for the kiteboarding.
intended for the curiosity purchase. buy one, try it, forget it.
just like the Restube.
trere are reef shoes for that, actually, three or four times cheaper.voodoospirit wrote:well , i have a hard time to imagine using flipflop when u walk over underwater rocks, corals, sharp shells ( or broken bottles if u ride on lakes ( dumb asses who throw them in the water) , but i have to agree that if u ride around clean white sandy beaches with only smooth sand, it's totally useless.
i use fivefingers shoes, and it save my feet many times from wounds.
i'm just glad you have mentioned those prizes!panchito wrote:Really ??? You have a heck of negative karma ....
Met 2 Germans a few months ago kiting at my local spot in Sotogrande both wearing those " worthless " invention and they told me the socks are fantastic , they sit tight and the best part of it , it gets no sand or whatsoever inside .
Saw them kiting for a few hours and as far as I´m concerned they worked flawlessly, too bad I recently bought my Fivefingers and did not want to spend again more money but sure next time I will get them .
Regarding the restube .... again , I may get mine next week , hope never to use it but I´m glad I will carry with me every time I´m near water ....
And by the way , both " worthless " products won several prizes and awards and have been featured in the German & Swiss television several times ....
heartface: & peace

Gosh .... as far as I know , these guys started their company last year ... presented their idea in several competitions / events and started production 6 months ago , they are a sort of " kickstarter " and received investment money from the local government or so ....not a one from police, emergency response or coast guards?
