Re: Maui Kitebeach to be banned !

Hopefully there is a strong local kitesurfing organization (preferably with an attorney or two on board) with a liason to the local park district/DLNR. It would be great to hear from someone who is involved as such. @loosescrew - it sounds like you are maybe one of those people ? Really every local ...

New Orleans

Hey so I'm going to be in New Orleans for a conference next week. Looking for inside info re: kiting potential, hoping to bring some gear and try to ride. Looks like Lake Pontchartrain not too far from downtown and would work on the right winds. Any place to rent a board? I found cat5kiteboarding, w...

Re: OBX or Tampa in September?

Hey - sorry to hijack, but I have similar plans - looking to go anywhere in US or nearby, second week of September.

I think Hatteras is best bet (besides Maui) for wind in September, although certainly not guaranteed. Any other suggestions?

Re: Kitesurfer hit by Windsurfer.... Not Good!!!!!

To me it's quite simple, the kiter was tacking away from the beach and caught a little too much air off a wave and crashed the landing. It happens. The windsurfer was tacking towards the beach, did not appear to have some right of way on a sweet wave. He looks like he tries to cut harder upwind to a...

Re: Eletric Kite Inflation

Yo Spork - I think most of C J's last comments were directed at me. I'm not big on internet arguments, I'll just say that the majority of people pump up their kites like they're lifting a heavy object using mostly their back, and even a PhD/PT would acknowledge that's not good for you. I gotta say t...

Re: Eletric Kite Inflation

Spork I agreed with your pre-edited post.

C Johnson how is pumping your kite good for you? Not sure what school of ergonomics you went to. Lumbago (nonspecific low back pain) is a big f'n deal. Anything that preserves my energy/strength/low back for actual kitesurfing I'm all for.

Re: Now seriously - self rescue on a Cabrinha?

I've always wondered the same thing. Someone explain to me how the IDS safety system is any different than rigging suicide to the chicken loop below the bar on a pre-IDS Cabrinha (which I use). I once rented an IDS kite and when I punched out, I was close to shore but couldn't touch and the thing st...
