Your thoughts-to-keyboard translator isn't working properly :P :lol: nothing there about a break... and you lose legs on a regular basis so "loss" was a reasonable assumption :D

Billie,

You dont need a new sail.

I have been rigging a kite to a Nacra 5.2. No mast = no set up time. Cant solo though.

Hopefully this isn't offensive to you. But if I some how lost my legs i'd try to make all sorts of crazy leg contraptions and adaptions.


NOT offensive ; most the people i know, say the same thing !

Since These NEW prosthetic legs fit so well , i actually got off my Ass & made an inside mold
off both prosthetic-s , on the last set, so i'll be back on the water in
less than a week.

Next up will be a contraption that i can pull on a string, and it will release
my fake foot from out of the boards foot straps ; both feet hang up in the straps when i fall,
because the ankles don't bend . I Need to be able to but the foot-strap back
together with one hand though, so i can fly the kite with the other hand, if i
ever pull the release. Not sure how that will work ; just know i'll never go in
real ocean waves till i got that devise.

Dang Billie,

Quit fucking whining, shit happens...what's going to keep the new sail from ripping?

So take your sail down to the Sail lady on Lake Meade Blvd. and have her sew it back--then you have a beefy gayish sail...

Rigging? that's why I quit Windsurfing---a Hobbie? a trailer? six mile??

You're not only a bit of a self broadcaster you're also working way too hard..

Sew the f-en thing, and put the cash into some homey tech lessons...

Unstayed riggs rule...

cheers

Kite boarding is nearly as fun as the above, but the water is (Way) safer ;
Rush for Rush --- your better off on the kite-board .

I know cost is a factor, but I reckon you should carry spares, B. You're a bit rough on your gear :D
