Re: Make your own Splitboard

Weak, also too complicated, wonder if it would last in salt water.
The forces on a split kiteboard lengthwise, are more than a snowboard side to side.
The snowboard is bridged by the mainly rigid boot, as well as the binding, and the span is much smaller.

Re: Making the home text visual nice - your help and opinion needed

Whatever you do , DO NOT make it lower contrast than it is now, or it will be bad for mobile, bad for "more experienced users" (who might they be ;) ???), and simply harder to read, more often, for more readers.
Just a little touch more contrast would be nice, in fact.

Re: Making the home text visual nice - your help and opinion needed

how about what you have now except no italics for the forum?

Re: Help me jump strapless :)

Thoughts come to mind: Good steady wind and good wave direction help a lot. Absent ideal conditions, if you ride a short, wider board it catches the wind well and that helps. If the board does not have a long pointy nose, it is easier to avoid board blowing in wrong direction in the air or rotating ...

Re: Moses Onda is there better for me

They were designed for SUP right?
Anyway, no magic wing or kite can make 12-30 plus waves easy, that’s a challenge for anything!

Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

Also if you are going to design a new sport, sell the licence to a bunch of manufacturers to do with as they please in return for the money they just gave you, it’s a bit much to then sit there and point the finger of blame for high costs at the people that paid you. Blaming thier distribution mode...

Re: Moses Onda is there better for me

@BWD - Do you think the Ketos 1200 is faster then the Onda? I saw someone who got 44km/h on the Onda. That seems for me pretty fast on such a big wing. Currently I am considering the Ketos 1200 opposite the Onda with a Groove board. What would be your choice and why? Cant say for sure which is fast...
