Kitesurfing.mobi, Snowkiting.mobi, Kiteboard.mobi for Sale

I am selling four kite-related .mobi domain names that are excellent for both branding and search engine optimization. They are Kitesurfing.mobi, Snowkiting.mobi, Kiteboard.mobi and Kiteboarder.mobi. These were bought in 2006 during the .mobi landrush and would be good for mobile websites providing ...

I want to make it clear that I really like PL kites. The auto zenith is a great feature and I can appreciate some of the points about kiting in waves. But when water gets in the vents on the leading edge, you start to weigh down the kite and they are harder to re-launch. If wave after wave is hittin...

PL Arcs are simple kites and easy to set up. That is one of the main reasons people stick with them. Water re-launch is a problem. If they land on their leading edge and get water inside the kite, or get too wet, they are hard to pull out of the water. This is really the worst thing about them in my...

Live2surf, I can see Pillar Point/Princeton in your photos. Knarly cold water in Half Moon Bay. I know it well. joeyb, you NEED to practice relaunch (I still suck, by the way), especially if you ever kite in cold water. North Shore or Maui can bitch slap you with wind and waves, but the water is war...

Which C's do you guys think are the most durable? Everyone talks about performance, but few people talk about bladder problems, rips, tears, worn lines and other sh*t that happens when you are learning or crashing in the waves. Also, which ones in your opinion have the simplest bars and setups?

This is really helpful boardwise. It's the line length that still trips me up. I hear 9 m kite with 10 m lines (in other posts) and 13 m kite with 23 m lines. That's a big difference in light wind.

Being from Oahu and now living in Socal, I would say that Oahu and definitely Maui are much better. Depending on where you go, the wind in Southern California can be unpredictable and gusty with lots of lulls. The worst part for me is the wetsuit and booties for the cold water. Sucks. That said, you...

- If you are more pissed about the wind conditions in Southern California than the traffic on the 101 and 405

I think that says it all.

This thread is great for anyone who comes from a surfing background (stoke!!!). I am more interested in "kite surfing" and less interested in feestyle and big air. I never see directionals where I go, probably because of the conditions, or the individual kiters and their preferences. It is mostly sm...
