Re: Suggestions for Foot Straps

I must be out of touch too since I just about choked when I saw the $169 price on those footstraps. Of course you can always opt for the $29 a month plan if you spent all your money on that mansion you built. Seriously you should talk to Papa Bro about some pads. The new ones he has are nice and cus...

Brokite 2015

New video from Jerry. New boards are looking great and Santa can get more of them into his sleigh this year due to the lower weight. Unfortunately there was an unintended consequence from the new board graphics. Rudolph's services were no longer needed and Santa laid him off. <iframe width="854" hei...

Re: Sign for Montrose rules, donations?

I have some sample A boards and can donate one to the cause. A couple have white boards on both sides, and a couple of the others have either snap frames or slide ins for inserting signs. See http://snapframesdirect.com/Snap-Frames/Sidewalk-Signs-A-Boards-Online.html for examples of what we have. Le...

Re: 2014 BROKITE....a look inside

Did I see that correctly that Flyboards and Crazy fly are just slapping a sheet of carbon fiber over the wood core and calling it a carbon board? If so what a wast e of carbon fiber. I cant see that it would really add any strength to the board or save on weight. It appeared Cabrinha was using fiber...

Re: BROKITE shack in Corpus

The shack is going to be the bomb when Jerry finishes the reno. Nothing better than hanging out there having a beer and BBQ after a day on the Laguna! In summary the Corpus area offers consistent winds in the spring, great flat water spots on the Laguna and wave riding on the gulf. The special aspec...

Re: Forum Updates

Have enjoyed the site for the past 8 years so am happy to chip in even though I don't live in Chicago anymore. I wish we had a site like this in Corpus. There was one but no one used it.

V/Brandon, thanks for all your work and for funding the site for all these years.

Re: South Padre Island TX Trip –Great Opp to Learn Kiteboard

When in SPI you should go to www.daddysrestaurant.com. Best cajun seafood I have had anywhere. West can attest as well. Get a lb of the New Orleans shrimp. The Bayou and the Mussette are also excellent.

Thanks for post Andrew. I have been thinking of heading up there. Only 2.5 hours to Houghton from here. May try to head up there when Jerry and Maggie are here at the beginning of August.
