Re: Shinn bite fins, where to buy?

Re: Airline Pilots, Kiteboard on Layovers?

We get a lot of pilots coming thru South Padre. Some bring their own gear and others will rent just a board from Air Padre but bring their own kites. This happens a lot! Wherever you go you might find a cheap board rental which saves you a lot of luggage space.

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

I have extensive time on both the Ultra and the Boxer. Hands down the Ultra is the better kite. Both are good but the Ultra is better. Turns faster, it is lighter so it climbs faster and construction is better.

Re: 2017 Naish Boxer in waves

Look at the Airush Ultra too. I have put a lot of time on both the Boxer and the Ultra. The Ultra is much faster. The Boxer is very nice but the Ultra just ticks wave riding a bit better.

Re: The Wind Window Explained

Someone needs to explain lofting to this girl. The majority of accidents and deaths over the last 2 years were from lofting. You do not " chill out" with the kite at 12 :angryfire: .

Re: Core GTS3 vs Airush Union

The Union is NOT a 5 line kite. Airush kites today have fairly light bar pressure. Check out http://www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Kite ... -Union-9m/ for a good review.

Re: Site Visitors - How About Speaking to the Locals First?

Politeness and common sense has seemed to be thrown out these days. At my site we have a local verbal truce with the surfers so that we launch/land and kite about 300 yds down wind of them. Not a problem since we both have a great parking area. Well people visit and instead of asking locals what to ...

Re: What is the value of trainer kites? I don't get it.

Gee, that pic is quality. Full kite, on land, no helmet, no impact vest and power lines down wind.
