Re: Aruba January

Does your wife kite...if so, stay at Kite-Inn.com because other than kiting...there's really nothing to do on this side of the island. Kite-Inn... $80/night (cold a/c , hot shower, comfortable bed, and very clean). You can kite your tails off...it's 5mins from Boca Grandi. Arnold who owns Kite-Inn ...

Re: Aruba January

Boca Grandi has very good swells outside the reef. Pechi has opened a Beach Bar and Grill there. Twin tippin in the Boca is great too. Get over 9 kiters and it's a tad crowded but time your sessions between the noobs and you'll have a ball. 96% chance of great wind. Can't beat it for a kite-trip. C...

Re: Aruba January

Hey, I went to Aruba and kited huts 8 years ago (before the R/C was built). Anyways, I'm a pretty experienced kiter, but i want decent waves. How's Boca Grandi on the outside wave wise, I'm guessing they get some pretty good wind-swell based on the trades and exposure. Any comments, I'd take both my...

Re: Prodigy??

Nice.. that's the quiver I'm thinking....7,9.5 Prodigy then he 12, 17. Flite. Yeah, that sounds solid, I'm a big fan of orienting kite types to sizes. Before i moved to mostly all wave riding/strapless surf, I'd have a 3 kite quiver, where the biggest kite would be more light wind/all-around orient...

Re: Prodigy??

Thanks for reviews on Prodigy.. sounds like it would do the job. I just picked up a Duke and have to say it is a fantastic surfboard for me. I have owned others and nothing has come close to the smoothness of this board. Just eats chop and messy waves like no other IMO. Love it!!! Agreed, I will al...

Re: Prodigy??

I had one, and it's a good all-around kite, decent booster, works really well in gusty conditions. I've since switched to the Roams just because I'm 95% of the time on a surfboard. I've only flown the 14.5m Flite, but the Prodigy has a similar feel. I would highly recommend it for smaller sizes to s...

Longboarding/Noserider with a kite?

I've thought about this for awhile when the wind is a bit light and there's a decent little knee to waist high wave coming in, has anyone ridden a longboard or maybe thought about designing a modified kiteboard that would work for longboard style on a wave? I'm just thinking it could be kinda fun to...

Re: Ocean Rodeo: The Next Generation is now

Quick review on the 7/9.5m Roam/Stick Shift Bar: Background info: 170 lbs, 5'3" Cabrinha Spade and OR Duke, mostly all directional riding in mixed conditions (I've had onshore, side-off, and sideshore) So, I'm coming off a quiver of OR Razors which I've been on for the better part of 4 years. This s...

Re: Boosting only one way

Same - it happens, I can only back/front roll one way too. I can jump on my switch tack a bit, but only when coming into shore and redirecting the kite afterwards. I think it's pretty typical. I'm also mainly boosting in shallow water off little kickers. 28619216_10103491502503088_357542926510088231...

Re: Nosaro Costa Rica Beta

Yeah, great spot to surf, I wouldn't even think of kiting - a. you will piss off everyone catching waves if you go kiting through, b. the wind is completely offshore for the most part, c. - refer to a and b. If you want to kite, go north roughly 2 hours to Bahia Salinas, but frankly, if you are goin...
