Re: GREAT LAKES SUMMER KITING

You can leave your small kites at home; it just won't happen, but even a skilled climber can get blown from the tree on any given day.

Re: 7/8 buying gear afraid to get scammed

Your best option is to buy gear off this forum, a lot of guys are selling excellent equipment in excellent condition. It sounds like your relatively new to the sport, so just make some inquiries on some used gear; unless you have to have new.

Re: Midwest SUP Championship Series, Sheboygan

The day I understand this SUP arena will be the day I die. You stand up and paddle on a board...gesch, I might do this for a day if my garage blew-up with everything in it and a band of Hooter chix drove up in a bus and said, "hey, big guy, lets go SupING."

Re: Keegs Thursday 5/24/12

If you have land kiting in your portfolio you should be well equipped to take it to the water. You do not elaborate on how much time you have spent with the kite, but if your kite skills and knowledge of launching and landing are proficient you should be good to go. There should be plenty of room on...

Re: Question regarding CL Release

I agree, it has to be well thought out and tested. It really is a simple design and fairly flawless in how it works. I am just doing it as a short term fix and not planning to engage anywhere that would test the equipment to its limit, so I am confident of its integrity and deployment.

Re: Question regarding CL Release

I just want to replace that collar piece, it slides over the pin to retain the loop. I was thinking there has to be something that could duplicate this collar, it would be something easily grabbed and would have to have a hole diameter of about 1/2 inch. Something at Home Depot or something commonpl...

Question regarding CL Release

I have an older Takoon bar with the traditional center strap and chicken loop. The release plastic piece pretty much disintegrated and I need to jury rig something. This has to be fairly easy to do (find a fill-in piece for deployment), has anyone had to replace one of these and found something suit...

Re: Granite Peak, WI

They do a good job of grooming and have a nice high speed quad, they advertise 77 runs but in actuality only have 7. A third of the hill is a headwall and the remaining 2/3 is flat as a pancake. It might be fun for a day (quite expensive), but any more than a day you have to spend the overage in the...
