Not sure how old the website is, but you might want to look at https://www.terrasailindustries.com/decks/ The specs for the boards don't seem outrageous. Actually they look fairly modest. Things get more interesting when you look at their windsurfing rigs: https://www.terrasailindustries.com/shop/Wi...

These are the three dimension that need to be measured:

Outer diameter, inner diameter and bearing width.

All dimensions should match the bearing that you are replacing.

The Hillbillys are the only ones I have tried. The Trampa looks interesting, but would hate to give up the coccyx plate. Also a bit of a pain to source in the U.S. I expect part of the Hillbillys popularity is due to the fact that they now use MBS's distribution chain. The Dainese Hard Shorts look i...

Kite size depends on your weight, the terrain you will be riding, and prevailing local winds. People kite landboard with foils, closed cell kites, Arcs, LEIs (Leading Edge Inflatable), and even NPWs (single skin kites). If by water kites, you mean LEIs... they work fine. The only thing about LEIs is...

Channel trucks need the additional tip angle to provide the leverage to function properly. You could wedge it, but you would have to custom build the wedges. All the off-the-shelf wedges I have seen are shaped and drilled for the skate truck plate pattern. If you go with making your own wedges, a go...
