Help Kiter Who is Political Prisoner in Venezuela

I first met Venezuelan politician and kitesurfer Leopoldo Lopez when we went kiting together under the Golden Gate Bridge. We later kited at Wadell Creek on the California coast and at Sherman Island in the Sacramento Delta. Leopoldo's wife Lilian is also a kiter who set a record by kiting from Cura...

Portugal West Coast Wind & Spots Question

Hello, I just arrived to Guincho (beautiful spot!). During the summer it is supposed to work well with Northerly wind (supplemented with the afternoon thermal). Two questions: 1) The forecast for the weekend switches to a SouthEasterly 10-14 knots. Would Guincho still work in those conditions or are...

Kiting Banned in Isla Holbox Mexico

I was about to head to Isla Holbox to take advantage of a great wind forecast for next week when the local kite instructor, Gabo, told me they recently banned kiting in the whole island until further notice. What a close call! Apparently the fishermen objected and the local authorities sided with th...

Re: Solo Sports Punta San Carlos, Baja

I LOVE PSC and the team at SoloSports is terrific. They pretty much take care of everything for you so not sure what tips to give you... Try the mountain biking trails which are amazing - they have bikes you can use. Stay as long as you can ;-).

Cheers,

Re: Do you keep track of your sessions?

I use www.strava.com. Used to do it with my iPhone in a waterproof case but now prefer to track with my Garmin 610 watch. Then add any relevant info in the title or comments section.

Dakhla Waves and Gear Rental

I am going to Dakhla next week and I am trying to decide which boards to take with me and which to rent there. Any advice? Are the twintips available for rental at Daklha Attitude good ones and convenient to rent and keep for a week? What about surfboards? I asked and they said they only had two dir...

Where is the wind next week?

I am planning a kiting trip leaving this Saturday or Sunday from San Francisco. I've been monitoring the Windguru forecasts in the Caribbean hoping to select a spot with a good forecast at the last moment (this has worked great for me in the past :-). Unfortunately I can't find a single Caribbean de...

Puerto Rico: Melia or Wyndham

I am planning a trip to Puerto Rico with my extended family for December. My relatives need a 4/5 start hotel so I am considering the Melia and the Wyndham. The Wyndham seems to be at a kite spot (Rio Mar Beach) but the Melia seems nicer. Any locals have feedback for me? How is the kiting in front o...

Re: what about Race LTD 2011 "69 Edition" ?

I have a North Race LTD 69 and I really like it - it is particularly good upwind. Downwind it is not as forgiving as the Mikes Lab board. I am selling mine in case anyone is interested... Send me a direct message if so.

Cheers,

A.
