Re: Kiteboarding Banned at Padre Island National Seashore

This is a vintage thread...almost 10 years. Any update on the status of kiting in at Padre Island National Seashore. Still banned? Specifically the ocean side of Bird Island?

Cabrinha Crossbow 3 1:1 Bridal Modification

I know this topic is probably a little dated. I'm looking to find any tried-and-true modifications that could convert the Cabrinha xBow 3's bridal in order to work with a 1:1 modern bar. Any insight out there?

Re: Cape Hatteras - Kitty Hawk or Ocean Air Sports & Nightli

by your use of the term "hire a car" I would guess you're not from the states? i definitely want to confirm you won't be finding any euro-style, bass-thumbing 'till 5AM kinda parties just about anywhere in that region of the world. go for the kiting. two beers post an all-day session and you'll be t...

Re: Traveling NC to HI - US Air Baggage Tips?

I put my kiteboard in a shanty-looking cardboard wrapping. Any put the kite in a normal suitcase. I have called the box a snowboard, "art", and a slew of other things i don't currently remember. I always make sure to flash my us air mastercard, as well. So far no issues, but I haven't tried this on ...

Re: Griffin Kites

Pretty happy with my argos. For the price (value/performance/durability), they're on top of the market. Big strides in the 2011 models as compared to the 2010s.

Re: FL (central east coast) vs SoCal

FL wind isn't too spectacular. Maybe 4 or 5 magic days a year. (surf/wind lining up perfectly) But FL is much warmer. Windfinder.com has wind statistics.

Re: Anyone used 2010 North Freestyle Fish - feedback please.

15-30 knots strapless? gonna fly away.

had a blast with this board. more like a skimboard than a surfboard, but for that reason it's perfect for windchop. if you think you found a deal, you won't regret it.

Re: Kites with multiple line attachment points

Griffin kites (what i ride) have an obscene amount of attachment points. I ride the default settings and have been very pleased with the performance/price ratio. There are several forum threads about different attachment points floating around. I try to not be too much of a tech-weeny, as I think th...

Re: President of United States Bans Kitesurfing….

ironic timing to this thread. i encountered president carter's family this weekend while kiting in the florida keys at a small beach. was relatively early in the day, so it was only him and his family, me kiting, and about 15 secret service agents. they even took the time to compliment my riding as ...
