Re: Broken metatarsal

Nope

Just a bit more sensitive to change in weather... It's a really odd thing.
No pain when doing sports.

Re: Broken metatarsal

Dave,

I only just read this message.
Not kitesurfing or running for 3.5 months for me when this happened to me in 2013.
It felt ok after 2 months but I took it easy and waited an other month or so.

Good luck.

Where are you off to Tone?

Might go out this week end but it is a bit windy right now for the foil.

Jonnie Eisler does a great job.
You can sent it over to him or ask him to arrange pick up.

The average kiter in the UK likes to be manly and ride in stronger winds to show off is little balls (just think of grf)... :mrgreen: . Been thinking about this comment for a few days. I do like to get out there in hig...

Re: Foil Boards

So i am going to be very critical and probably look like an arrogant French man! Built My foil over a year ago. I doubt kitefoil will ever kick off in the UK. How many people are doing racing/long distance in the UK? Just check out the French competition and you will get an idea. The average kiter i...

He's some blurb about their foil...

Iksurf Mag is the only one I read because it is free. As such I do not mind the advertising!

Re: Foil Boards

Personally I started with staps and I would recommend others to do so too The amount of small tweaks and adjustments that you make as you ride that you need the leverage that you get from having them is incredible. Without them you would crash pure and simple My rule of thumb though is have them so...

You should contact http://www.buggybags.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Re: Foil Boards

I started a year ago but then, I only kited 3 times since due to family and n injury.

Well worth it but I doubt it is for everyone.

Edit 1:
I built mine and will build another one once I am "good" enough on it.


Edit 2:
Forgot to say, I think our friend Steve ordered on from Carafino :mrgreen:
