Default Free Stuff....

While cleaning out the garage today I came across several items that I will never use. I would like these items to go to someone who is new to the sport and taking lessons from an instructor. Some of these items need to be gone over by someone who is familiar with some of the older gear and who better than instructor or experienced rider.

(1) 15m GK Lift c-kite, I think its an 04. Been repaired flies good, has bag no bar.

(1) Pyro 05 XL waist harness, has surefire spreader w/leash

(1) Complete set of Machine 17.5m struts

(1) Machine 17.5 leading edge

(4) Slingshot bars, all have 4 lines and 1 has 5th line.

If your interested in any of these items, just get in touch with me and I'll hang on to them until I see you.

Thanks,
Big G

I'll take anything you want to donate, especially that surefire spreader bar, its great for students. I am also collecting up old gear and kites for some projects in the works, even busted boards.

Wow, dangerous, huh? Thanks for the heads up dude!Maybe I will switch to the Levi's Harness (CL thru the belt) like I saw on East Beach last year. Thats a lot cheaper anyway...

I was thinking of using a double board leash too, one on each end of the board using braided Q-Line (that suff is strong!). I sewed 2 ankle straps together so it fits neatly around my neck, its totally stylin' bro!
Board shorts are dangerous too, might get tangled up on something- I'm switchin' to Speedos...We also have a new policy at KTB- Bring your own kite to the lesson. I am really, really tired of these newbs crashing up my gear and tangling my lines. I had to turn a guy down the other day that thought he would be flying my stuff- I said "Get your own stuff, newbie. You ain't touchin' my kite unless you plan on buyin' it first." The guy didn't even have a belt on and wanted to use one of MY harnesses- Geez.... These guys have some nerve, don't they?


(BTW, I'll let you know when my surefire breaks, 4 years and counting.)

Wow glad I didn't take my lessons from you. You want a free harness so you can make some money teaching with it and then poke fun at riders (who are better than you), giving there experiences with it. You sound like a real piece of work.

Umm, kristurdo, that was called humor...
Something that was once a part of kiteboarding that is missed by many... kinda like whitecaps.....You see, a big part of kiteboarding is having fun with your friends, but its kind of a lost art these days.
Its an election year ya know...
Try this one:
Josh has nothing on me- those unhooked tricks are for wussies who want to let go of the bar if they fall. Not me dude, I use a combination lock to hook in, and just ride it out. Besides, my backroll has style, brah.
(Thats all you need to impress the chicks on the beach anyway, so why learn anything else?)
How could he be better than me? The guy flies yellow kites- how girly-man is that?
That Big G guy giving stuff away for free?
He must be up to something....
Gotta run!- My book club's selection of the month just arrived: "Jokes for the Laughing Impaired"




Disclaimer:
(Big G and Josh are good friends of mine.) They wouldn't expect anything less from me than a swift ball busting on a windless day like this.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Kris.
