    Landboard to carveboard

    My Trampa is for kite, and I'm experimenting with my Scrub, but some advice, when messing around feeling which bushings are best make sure no curbs near by. I had an 'ouch' moment and spoilt my boarding for a week or so. Hit the curb,( going at a snail pace) , and bindings held me tight and went over twisting my ankle , I thought the bushings were soft enough to let me miss the curb, but no, they weren't . One of those 'look stupid' moments in slow motion, then trying to quickly, ..ouch, get up, looking around to see if anyone saw my embarrassing moment, then with a 'limp' limp, try to get into my van, then scream with foot in air holding tight to ankle. Ok, I'm a softeee, I'm just glad it isn't broke. For a while I am sticking with bindings only when kiting, ( kite helps ease gravity) . Longboards with no bindings, is where I'm at, when not kiting. πŸ‘

    What do you think of 'E power for your boards ?

    Does pumping/LDP come in the 'purist' category plummet ? How about using gravity with a longboard on some long down hills ?

    Happy Christmas to one and all

    Hope you all have a nice Christmas and Santa brings you all the kiting goodies you asked him for. He has a soft spot for kiters As he is a big air fan himself, and he doesn't even need much wind, he has reindeer power. Hope you guys down under don't get sunburnt. Have fun and enjoy this holiday seasonπŸŒžβ˜€οΈπŸ–πŸŽ…πŸ¦

    What do you think of 'E power for your boards ?

    Bigger riser blocks, or extra ones , slightly harder boardside barrel bushings along with cup washers should sort the wheelbite out. I don't know if the Kranx powerstik are still for sale, you need to contact them.

    A prickly topic ....Insurance or no insurance ?!

    Fly safe, fly carefully, fly sensibly , fly respectfully (to wind, kite and site) . My learning curve has always been slow, soft and carefully with risk assessments as long as my arm, ( you may say I'm boring and over causous ) I don't jump in head on and 'just go for it' when dealing with Mother Nature when she can be unpredictable, I've had my near miss moments and the odd bruise to go with it, but I'm always watching the weather and being aware what the wind and clouds are doing whilst I'm enjoying my kite session. A lot of the time it's just me on my site with the odd passer by (which I chose that way , as I usually go when it's a quiet time of the day ) so I notice anybody approaching.

    A prickly topic ....Insurance or no insurance ?!

    So you are more concerned about losing a kite site than the welfair of the injured person ? Would having insurance made any difference ? I doubt it, if the injured party wanted to threaten and push the council, the council would just put a ban on it anyway. If the councils require insurance to fly then they realise the risks involved and just want to make sure they don't get blamed for any incedents . It's all about money, not the welfair and safety of the individual. So will having insurance make you a safer, considerate , a better more proficient kiter ?, or maybe "I'm insured I'm ok, I can fly in busy crowded public parks and busy beaches without any worry ", does that way of thinking make them a safer kiter ? "Kite flying is like riding a bike - there is nothing 'extreme' about it....unless you set out to make it that way." I like it. πŸ‘ To a newbie, powerkiting can seem quite extreme, but do you think the more you do it, and the more skilled you get, the less extreme it feels ?
  11. So, wind is free, the beach is empty, ( except for the odd dead crab or dead fish ), so why bother with third party insurance ? , in fact , any insurance ? Its an 'extreme' sport, its on your own head, so why bother, you know the risks ! Or do you try and kite in a buisy park/beach/area, where the risk of an accident with joe public is there ?! Public race events where every pilot has to have insurance makes more sense, asthe risk of an incedent is high, but what about the average kiter that doesnt race ? Here is me, ive only been power kiting since year 2000 , and have NEVER had kite insurance and NEVER will. I buggy, board and static kite. Ok i probs dont take risks and dont fly in bad gusty conditions and at 56 i dont do the higher jumps i used to on my board, and never bothered with freestyle risks, and my learning curve is never sharp, i take things carefully, but saying that, i still enjoy the thrill , but yet ALWAYS RESPECT the WIND and my kites. Some may call me irrisponsible, but i cant spell it !
  12. There are lots of different ways of powering your board. But what do you think of the 'E Paddle' http://www.epaddle.net/ im thinking of making a cross between the e paddle and the powerstick ( Kranx) https://www.kranx.ca/
