When i received it and went onto the sigma website to register it they said it wasn't a UK model, so i couldn't ...

Re: EBAY SPECIAL - settle and argument for me!

ebay are uber expensive to sell on, but their customer service is excellent. Mail the bloke and ask for your money back or a partial refund. If he won't play ball get hold of ebay and they will sort it very quickly. They look after their buyers very well. Even to the detriment of an honest seller. I...

Re: Hoax call to Coastguard

Whoever does that kind of thing are scum pure and simple. If they catch the person they should bill him for all the costs and a fine. A few years ago I just got out of the water when a guy said his girlfriend was still out there and he couldn't find her. It was dusk so there wasn't much time and it ...

Re: go pro...worth it ?

http://www.vimeo.com/18030986 I love it! Just been snowboarding too and fitted it to a ski pole so can do self portraits while riding down the hill. Image quality is really good and there are so many mounts. I bought mine when I was in the USA for £180 with surf mounts. Nice editing and music. Real...

Re: Naish Venturi race board

there has just been a race event in La Ventanta, where they ran kite slalom and long distance, the boards for that were again hugely different to what is used for course racing, outlines setups etc. Wasn't it won by some kid on the Best wakestyle board in boots against some of the fastest racers in...

Re: Naish Venturi race board

Thanks James, I hope they don't create so many disciplines that it gets too watered down.

The course racing is a great way of making kites more acceptable to the sailing bourgeois.

Re: Naish Venturi race board

As the format is still newish. I guess the top riders are in an arms race for new innovations in board design. Last years board is sooooo last year. Are daggerboards allowed? they will cream upwind and be more controllable downwind. If there aren't already there should be weight categories. I looks ...

All done.

Be nice to see your results.

Weather is top priority for me, or more to the point windy.

I guess somewhere like Egypt would be a good shot for wind if you were going away for a week. Getting shot would be an issue atm, but he who dares rodney :mrgreen:
