Re: Red itchy eyes *only* in warm/tropical water (even with goggles), why?

It might be beginning of surfers eye (pterygium). It will bother you more in stronger winds and drier air since you loose lubrication sooner and from then on your eyes have no protection from the salt and are getting baked with UV. Try gel type lubrication. If you don't use glasses this thing will j...

Re: Kite Manufacturing - free feedback
