Re: I'm looking for a killer deal on a new quiver.

I'm looking for a killer deal on a new quiver.

I'm looking for a killer deal on a new quiver of wave and or freestyle kites. Anyone have a good inside line on such a deal? (my old source dried up)

Thanks

What big kite drifts the best?

I am looking for the best drifting big kite for side on light wind down the line wave riding. (Unfortunately for me, my definition of a big kite is a 16 or 18.)

What is the most important factor in a big kite being able to drift in light wind?
weight?, design?, other?

Re: Kiting Jamaica??

I kited on the resort of half moon inn 6 years ago. Had my own private beach with a nice little reef break to boost off of. Plus, a guy that would come by in a golf cart and take drink orders. Never left the resort. The launch was a bit gusty, but that was in the old c kite days. I am sure there are...
