I'm looking for a source for fat/thick cross bar pads. Not even a kite specific question. My boat had one (euro), but that thing is shredded. Dug out an old normal sized one I never used, but not so comfy. I do have plenty of that extra thick pipe insulation, but looking for the same, but covered. Anyway, if someone thinks of something, please shout it out. Thanks!!


Old school for now:

Well, the rock band Queen did sing a song that said Fat bottomed girls makes the world go around.

None of my business why you want cross bar pads for fat chicks.

Here is an idea:

Take an old wetsuit of thicker make, like a 6m, and cut out the size you need. You could double or triple the cut and tape them together. Might need to have someone sow and manufacture you a cover with Velcro ends.

Wade, go talk to Will @ ProMotion in HR. Those guys are great when it comes to custom fitting something like this for you.

Thanks. It will take a ton of abuse (sun here, and Bahamas for a month in the Spring, the occasional mast drop (hopefully never to happen again, but it was that fat pad that saved the day)). I'll definitely pop in to Promotion and see if they have any thoughts. Thanks again.
