Re: Hey old buggars

This old bugger is a Kite Grandad about to turn 70. My local group of Kite Geezers are aged 72, 70, 68, 60 and a few young pups in their 50's. Tampa/Sarasota/St Pete gets a number of Boomers retiring to warm, sunny and windy SW Florida. We are just as passionate about learning to do back rolls and j...

Re: Surfer from CA new to Sarasota, FL - Beginner Questions!

The Sarasota/Tampa/St Pete area has a number of great instructor options. Contact me and I can give you a list of instructors and locations for kiting. Our season does not crank up until late Oct early November but it goes through Late June. We can get a few windy days if a tropical storm goes by bu...

Re: North Transformer Harness

Dakine Fusion is hard to beat for back support and comfortable after you wear it several times. Mystic also makes a nice seat harness.

Re: OT - Anyone try paddle skateboarding yet?

:D :D :D We have about 8 to 10 kiters landboarding when there is no wind here in SW Florida. It is not hard to learn, great exercise and excellant crosstraining for snowboarding or kiteboarding. Obviously, we are flatlanders with few slopes but the fun factor is pretty high anyway. It will take a fe...

Re: "Best" house - Soundside kiting in Hatteras - Help me pick

We rented East Wind on Creekside. It is a big house. You will have to walk across a long deck to the waters edge (note picture from Hatteras Raelty) to launch. There are several homes with grass rigging just north of this house that will be better. Having said this we loved the East Wind house - 4 r...

Re: "Best" house - Soundside kiting in Hatteras - Help me pick

I think the best spot is in north Avon. The properties are rented by Hatteras Realty and they are all on Island Creek. The units are pricey but they have great grass rigging and interior amenities. Our experience has required driving around based on wind direction and Avon is central to everything -...

Re: helmet recommendations?

:D :D My Pro Tec Ace Wake helmet rivets oxidized after 2 great years of use. Needed a new helmet and ordered the new Pro Tec "Two Face" water helmet with integrated short visor. All the same safety with a short sun visor for protection.
