Re: Virgin Armada Event

Forecast is looking a bit better now according to the Met with only light rain followed by sun in the late afternoon. Always a bit windier than forecast in the solent.

Re: Virgin Armada Event

I'm doing it.... could well be doing it on my sector, assuming there's enough wind to run it at all! I was thinking of doing it on my sector and large race kite but I am not going try to go round Selsey in marginal winds and rain which could totally switch the wind off, there is still also possibil...

Re: The 2015 SHINN Thread, the new year starts!

Will be interesting to hear what you find the low end is like. For me at the moment it sits between my sector and twin tip. I would imagine it will have better low ends than any twin tip except maybe the fly door. I find being able to change your feet position helps the low end especially if there i...

Re: The 2015 SHINN Thread, the new year starts!

Been using my Shinnster on a regular basis and seem to go out on it more than my Twintip now. Surpriding since I never considered myself interested in strapless riding but this just makes it so much fun and so effortless.

Re: RSI ? Kite surfing knee injury

Might be an idea to have a break from kitesurfing and when you come back try a totally different board. Your body is obviously telling you that you are doing something it doesnt like so best stop and let the inflamation or whatever go away. In my opinion the best boards for your knees are shinn sinc...

Re: Virgin Armada Event

This is really bad luck with the wind. I am pretty sure the wind patterns have changed over the last 3 years or so, might be to do with climate change.

Naked woman on the phone. I think I would have to keep my board face down on the beach if there were kids about.
