As far as I know, Best and Ocean Rodeo kites are made in same factory in Hong kong (as most other kites on the market). :D :D :D Are you saying a factory can only produce one design and thats it? Just just change the label? Think about it, if a factory can produce a waroo and a waroo pro (they are ...

There's virtually no difference in the setup time of a foil and a one-pump bow kite. If by "virtually no difference" you mean 10 minutes (unless you're putting up a 6m), then I guess you're right. :lol: (P.S.: I started on inflatos, and ride with guys who are on some of the latest inflatos - and th...

Port & starboard rules don't fix overcrowding. (and why would you stay that close to shore if there was more space farther out?) 99% of the time (if you're paying attention), it's clear who will point higher and it's just a matter of raising/lowering kites. The other 1% of the time, it's easy to ju...

This is way off-topic - except that you're all pointing out the biggest problem with this stuff: it needs to be SIMPLE!!! Newbs don't know "port" from "starboard" from "leeward" (and aren't likely to get that information in their first couple of lessons because "getting up on the board" is such a p...

15. Crossing situations Many more When two power-driven vessels are crossing, the vessel which has the other on the starboard side must give way. International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea Hi Paul, thanks for providing the links, but I need to clairify something... This rule does NO...

I have to jump in on the "right of way" thing - please don't use those words at all... "Yield" is almost as bad since it implies you're giving something away. The rule is: Avoid Collisions. Simple. Tom that argument have been discussed so many times on this and other forums before. In theory it wou...

Re: NEW DRAFT Kiteboarding Guidelines

4. YIELD THE RIGHT OF WAY. Yield the right of way to all others in the water. Riders must yield to others when jumping, to anyone on your right hand side and to launching riders. When in doubt, STOP. Kiteboarders should not jump within a buffer zone of at least two hundred feet (60 m) of others and...
