"Twerking" ?

Look guys, I don't watch TV much and I only read quality print so how would I know. Google it. Jeasus-H-Christ, I don't believe it.

Re: To pay for warranty exchange???

if they shoôt thrmsekves in the foot by marketing a board beyond its intended usage then vote with your feet and buy a board that is built for the way you intend to ride and treat it That was the theme of the discussion we had some years ago though it didn't get anywhere and there was always the op...

Re: To pay for warranty exchange???

Hard riding should not cause a board to fall apart in my opinion, companies often market their boards with professional riders putting the board under fairly extreme loads. . Thank-you, that's where I was trying to encourage the discussion. Presumably board manufacturers can't start limiting the si...

There is nothing pedantic about your answer James, sounds perfectly sensible to me. What about the weight issues then ?

Re: To pay for warranty exchange???

I think we've has this discussion before and i'm now wondering what is improper use of a twin-tip. At some point in the previous discussions someone pointed out that a 120 kilo bloke landing badly is out of the scope of store-bought twin-tips, then the discussion moved to the expected limitations. A...

Re: How much do you pump up your kite?

A bit of history some of you may not know, others will cringe. At the time of Slingshot Link Slingshot recommended 10 psi and though this recommendation was an attempt to cure some of the problems with that kite that didn't work, Slingshot were the first i'm aware of to draw a line in the sand. It a...

Most of those "mixed opinions" are associated to lazy-ness or can't be bothered, you've had some good advise on more than one topic.

Re: Fukushima any one concerned?

Ahh-sorry, it wasn't a criticism. From experience 'they' have this tendency to work between keeping their jobs and satisfying everyone. Top marks for squeezing an explanation out though.

Re: a few ways of rescuing a board

I loved your video John but i'm still shite at rescuing boards. Mostly because they are either massive or they don't have a handle, 130 X 40 with a handle I can pick up if it isn't one of those North jobs where the handle folds-round. The last board I tried to rescue was a barn-door style and built ...

Re: Snotter on front line?

Snotter ? :-D Hi Rob, all the kites I ever owned either already had a ball fitted to the safety line or I retro-fitted one, i've also retro-fitted balls to pals kites. You can do this with a wine bottle cork by drilling the cork an interference fit then cutting it on one side so you can slide it ove...

Re: Wetsuit shampoo

Because this issue of irritation comes up annually we are slowly becoming more knowledgable though there isn't a defining answer. Different people seem to affected by different irritants. In my case the irritation I suffered was caused by pissing in my suit and not washing it out thoroughly enough. ...

Re: Wetsuit shampoo

I already admitted to pissing in my suit regularly until I have a motorhome. I thought it was an age thing to need a piss as soon as I got in the sea so I shared it with someone who I thought might know the answer. You-all have an excuse, including me and though it is very convenient to squeeze out ...
