Re: Older Kiteboarders in the UK

Thank-you. I keep reading the forum in the hope that I can occasionally make contribution. Within weeks my cocker-spaniel Molly died after a short illness, I cried for three days solid until my face hurt. I'm still struggling with her loss, she was with me all the bloody time and even when I didn't ...

Re: Kite Magazines do you read any?

not that I'm a fan of middle aged men dressed in rubber? I used to read them all, then I stopped reading any because the authors opinion often proved a lot of nonsense. Then Rou did his best to explain that they do-do their best to describe kit the way they see it. Then I started reading again beca...

Re: Older Kiteboarders in the UK

The straw that broke the camels back was my fingers causing problems and a knee, The hips were fine as long as I avoided impact. Prior to that the only question was, was I tiring too quickly to deal with a kite-down or other emergency. The answer was a simple yes. I'm still very active though being ...

Re: Older Kiteboarders in the UK

Hi Alex, great short film you got there. Defo get hold of waverider off here, although you may not be able to keep it down under 2 mins. :wink: Cheeky. :-D Ok lads, it's final. I just retired from kitesurfing after the best sessions for a few years earlier in the summer. I retired for my own safety...

Re: Serious Assault - £5000 reward for information

it's all a bit weird really...... Isn't this whole thing a "bit-weird" ? Other than those being amused we have those being irritated, then we have those who enjoy irritating, but only by covering their identity, this alone displays a level of cowardice, sneaky and slime. At the very-least this idio...

Re: Shinn's 2014 thread - news, reviews and info

Trust me, I have been where he's at. Carefully constructed and shaped pieces of plywood of varying qualities produced nothing, this-all ended in frustration which produced hastily concocted pieces in order to deal with design-idea-changes. In the end I blamed it on the fins. Even the best ply you ca...

Re: T-Rex

:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D Oh-yes, I learnt that without straps I didn't bump into straps and with a wide-and-fat learner board the thing would glide whilst I slowly made up my mind what I was going to do. The problem these young-uns have (Some of them are over 50) is they can't cope with being being a nov...

Re: T-Rex

I might not be posting but I'm keeping an eye on you Graeme, got me splitting my sides a few times reading this thread. When are you going to take me out and get me drunk like you used too, and a few freebees, of-course. :-D On the issue of kite-surf-boards I had a few including that celeriac thing ...

Re: Still Crispy

I know you-all don't need to be reminded though the casual reader should know that making a few poor decisions with a kite can kill you or make you dependent on others for the remainder of your life. Youngsters that are short of cash and often even shorter when it comes to being sensible are the mos...

Re: Still Crispy

An inflatable D ? As far as I'm aware I only suffer short-term memory loss so he either made up the term or it's something recent I'm not aware of. Presumably this stuff is turning up at car boot sales, it's a frightening thought the mess someone could get into buying this stuff though It's crispy a...

Re: Newgale Beach Pembrookshire.

There always other options! Wow, fantastic, but I already have an access problem because of my poor walking. I gave up windsurfing because I couldn't carry the kit and that was when I saw Jonny Eisler with his little bag of cloth from French Canada and a comparatively tiny board back in 98. What I ...

Re: Newgale Beach Pembrookshire.

Ah-yes, Mr Moose. Other than the hips my eyes probably cost you £50.000. New lens implants supposedly to deal with the damage caused by regular face plants from back in the day when we either hung-on, or let-go. Back to the issues of Newgale beach as a kitesurfing venue, compared to many beaches New...
