Re: The twitchers are at it again!

So from a quick scan it looks as though 84.3% of all bird disturbances were caused by dog walkers with dogs off lead, bait diggers and walkers. Of the small percentage of appearances by kitesurfers (13.4% of the total), around 35% of cases resulted in no reaction at all and in over 50% of cases the ...

Re: VKA vs Coast 2 Coast

Re: Spec me a new winter suit

Apologies for the thread hijack, Tone. Mike, you caught me on a bad day - someone's driven into my van without leaving a note so I'm venting here instead. As with any single photo or other media that is taken out of context, it's understandable that people tend to read into it whatever their brain f...

No one had a problem with it when we ran the ad globally in 2010 or has mentioned it since then. It's just you.

Re: Wetsuit neck flush

Neoprene will 'give' around 5% when wet so you really need to fit the suit with it feeling quite tight in store. Back-zip wetsuits are better at this issue as you can tighten them up. Chest-zip suits have to be mega tight when new as every time you stick your melon through, it'll stretch a bit. Gend...

Re: Wetsuit Vs Drysuit

From our extensive testing, antibacterial treatments on the nylon jersey of a wetsuit last about 10 surfs then are completely gone. Just get your rinse on and your dry on after every session. Oh, and wash yourself once in a while too.

Re: Deck Pad Suggestions

I'm not convinced that that looks as though it'll be any good barefoot. It'll be for deck shoes.

I honestly think that you're better off sticking with tried and tested surf pads.
