Re: Season in Coche 2009?

Kiteboy, My information might be a bit dated. Went to coche some years back. But this might be useful to you. Coche does have bagpacker type accomodation. And to this day i don't know why the locals don't tell people about it. And why there's nothing on the net about it. This is what you do --- From...

For some reason, Continental always has a problem. Couple of years ago, The lady at Caracas airport won't let the kitebag go (North 135 cm. within weight limit). Had to shell out $50 each for the two connecting flights (total $ 100) coming back stateside from venezuala. ( they didn't charge a dime o...

Feedback on show#1. As much as people around here like you as a person, I'd rather be watching a hot girl anchor the shows. Plus give us something the news and mags can't. A sense of what's really going on in the kite world. Ryan's Podcast do this VERY well, you can too if you find some the right p...

Every time this has happened to me I have managed to bring the kite immediately back to shape simply by pushing the bar away and tensioning the front lines.
Will be giving this a try next time it happens. Looks like the consensus
is to get back to the beach with the crossed lines to fix it
up.

38, really started @ 36. I think age is not a number. It's the weight of responcibilities you start getting on your shoulders. As you progress through life. So the simpler your life, less weigh'd down you are -- the younger you feel and look and think. My kiting progress has been much slower then my...

Inverted Boxer Sle -- After hindenburging -- How to prevent

Yesterday was the second time it happened. I was on my 9 boxer sle. (absolutely love this kite) Jumped in a gust and then there was a lull. As well as the kite got behind me in the window. It dropped down with the leading edge facing the wind. Suddenly another gust came and invered it. :o After inve...
