Good on ya mate for getting this site up and running. This is just what the kiting community needs. I've been riding a skim off and on for about 3 years but I'm the only one I've ever seen ride one in my area so I've got no one to push my skills and talk technique with. Love the skim, some days I almost wish the wind was lighter so I can have the beach to myself with my skim. Keep the videos coming and keep the stoke going.

Welcome to losethestraps Slyde!

Thank you! I can promise you that we will definitely help push each others skills, and the definition of strapless riding. We plan on doing a lot more videos, and we hope that some of the users will contribute as well. Generally, most of us are looked at strangely when we ride our skimmers @ our beaches. Especially, a couple of years ago. I can definitely understand being by yourself. That was certainly one of the main reasons I started the site, because we needed a place to bounce ideas and give feedback to each other, and I could not find a site on the net to do it. Thus, this site was born....

Also, I can tell you that this forum is focused on the stoke and not the stroke.

Just out of curiosity how did you find the site?

Saw a link on the dangle forum (Kiteforum.com), but also got to you from Youtube. I usually trawl the dangle and wakestyle forums for skim vids etc every few weeks to keep my stoke going. Got you bookmarked now!!
