Just had another thought! If you have a wide slope that feels to steep then traverse it (go across it) with big turns and back again, like on skis or a snowboard. As you confidence increases you will find yourself aiming further down hill! And to slow down you just steer back up hill and down hill t...

I also break down steeper runs into sections, I usually start at the bottom and walk up to do a 20-30m run, whatever feels comfortable speed and cont...

Looking for LEIs. Like the element 2or3 switch http://switchkites.com/kites/element2.html I have two depower foils a 6m Ozone Access and a 10m Ozone Manta - a LEI would be a disaster where I buggy and try to board! https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Lake+Walyungup,+Perth+WA/@-32.3445651,115.77978...

West Australia

Just wondering if there are any other west Australian mountain boarders out there, and where you ride? I am based near Rockingham and board on a local hill and have been to Langford mountain bike park once, but do intend to explore some of more of the trails out there. I have a blog... http://baldiv...

I kite buggy, am learning to kite land board and also mountainboard. Before you get anywhere near a set of wheels it's a good idea to get a few hours flying a kite to get the feel for the power the kite and your limitations. Once you get a hang of the kite and feel confident then you can attempt to ...

No longer needed as I have just ordered online with Munro Boards http://www.munroboards.com/ as I realised I had $28 worth of rewards from buying my board, so only paid $35 inc postage.

Wanted - MBS heel straps

This is probably a long shot but...

does anybody have any MBS heel straps they are not using that they want to part with? And would be willing to post to Australia!

I like them for when I am downhilling and they should flip out the way when I am kite boarding!

cheers! Mark

Even did my mountainboard instructors course back in the day in the UK. Now do kite buggying, learning to kite land board and of cour...
