if a vehicle of 13ton is travelling at 45km/hr around a blind bend collides with another of 1/4ton travelling at 68km/hr would the windsurfing gear in the back of the pickup be useable afterwards?

I can't see the damaged equipment making windsurfing any less frustrating or difficult. Good to go! :lol:

Kites don't need much wind.

bragging about how awesome you are

Post by Atomic-Chomik »

Dear Namoo,

why do people brag about how good their sessions were at good spots that don't hold many people? Is it ignorance or some sort of compensatory mechanism?
Further to the point, why would someone release a video on the internet of places like that?

Its all so strange, im confused please help me understand.

As the orange faced president to our south has taught us, honesty, integrity and humbleness are for suckers and losers.

Just ask Nanmoo.

Hey Nanmoo, I've been enjoying windfoiling lately and find myself wondering, should I bother with getting a wing for foiling or should I just save up and get an electric foil so I don't have to worry about chasing the wind. Actually, my brother brought this up yesterday. I couldn't afford the e-board but he could. It's a legitimate question though. What do you think? Thanks.

I'm not Nanmoo BUT I am doing the wind to wing crossover. I think where it'll be great is transportation and using it on surfaces other than water.
I don't think it'll match the performance, especially in really light wind.

If E-foils get cheap and transport canada approved it will be the end of wings because why would you need one.

Clearly you haven't tried Wing-Rollerblading yet. The question is why go through the trouble learning to foil on water when there is instant fun on land via roller blades? (asking for a friend)
