Re: How to set up a wind sensor in remote areas?

Does anyone have experience of using these systems:

They do have a GSM version of the logger and it looks like the price might be cheaper than the wind talker unit.

Re: Kitesurfing big waves with side-on winds

Hi, I find in that situation that its about having a more active kite flying style that works. Parking the kite for sure is going to be a problem. Sometimes its just a matter of 'twitiching' the kite up and down, as this will help it fade down the line, but at other times you are going to have to tu...

Re: SS pulleys .. why still crap ones?

I've had three Revs - all with these pulleys - and all of them ate through p line in no time. I've bought maybe 10 sets of p line since having those kites. I changed the pulleys to a set from my 2006 GK sonic. Problem solved. If GK could sort out decent pulleys in 06, why are slingshot still putting...

Re: Felix Pivec Strapless kitesurfing in Hawaii April 2010

Hi Felix, I've always enjoyed your vids in the past. Found this one a bit repetative to be honest. I would be intersted to know what you make of Mitu's latest vids. To me, just an average punter - i.e. not as good as you, but probably exactly your target group - or at least your sponsors anyway, I f...

top 3 annoying things that really p you off about your kites

What things should the manufacturers take note of that annoy you about otherwise good kites? Amongst others: 1, one pump systems without neoprene covers that make holes in the kite - SS! 2, adjustable rear lines that go out of adjustment as soon as you launch the kite - (yep sorry Ozone thats you by...

Re: KPWT Jamaica Canceled?

Heading off topic rapidly, but I don't think anyone ever pretended that the UN was a democratic instituion - all major decisions taken by the 5 permanent members of the security council over which the other members have no vote and no influence. yuh. On topic - its time for the KPWT to go. Shame the...

Re: Witsand

If you do mean witsands then its not a good place to learn. Nearest school is Muizenburg - contact Patrice (thats him in the picture above) at www.surfstoreafrica.co.za (i think.. google it if not). There may be wind at witsands in March but unless you're a good intermediate or abve, then that is no...

Re: North Race Ltd 2009 or 2010

Thanks,

but maybe to add a bit of substance to your fairly definative reply, could you tell me where the difference is going to be felt most - upwind, downwind, light wind, high wind?

Thanks

Hi, Looking to get a race board as cheap as possible, and have been offered an 09 north race ltd for about half the price of the 2010. But, have also been advised that its too far out of date now to be competetive. Just wondering if there are any opinions - am i going to get seriously burnt by going...
