Re: Kahului, Maui kite trip

Can't speak from experience in the fall. I was out there in August and loved the place. Conditions reminded me of a less crowded Cabarete. There's giant green sea turtles that feed on the rocks and occasionally pop up for air from time to time. The wind was cranking the whole week I was there, there...

Re: Los Roques y Isla Coche

I'd heard you can gain entry to the islands via Aruba without having to go through the mainland, but I don't know if that's still the case. I've always heard it wasn't a safe place for anyone who didn't look local but I've just been especially curious as to whether or not the Kite VZLA page is brill...

Los Roques y Isla Coche

So I can't help but notice that Instagram would have you believe these places are kitesurfing Shangri La's filled with perfect flatwater conditions and super-model-looking kitesurfitas wandering about the place. That seems to pretty starkly contrast what it's like in the rest of Venezuela. Anybody h...

Re: New arguments for the old discussion “Straps vs Strapless”

Could always try doing half-straps, so you can get out of them more easily. Like the guys who invented Freebords did.

Re: Best Kites For Depower

Thanks for your input everyone. I actually managed to score a deal on a pre-owned 2016 BWS TDZ, so I went ahead and bought that. Zerogee, I actually looked at the Core Sections. They got some really great reviews on other forums and web pages, but the cost of ownership for the Section was prohibitiv...

Best Kites For Depower

Hey everyone, I haven't kited in years and am trying to get back into it since moving cross-country. The NH Seacoast and Southern Maine are my new home beaches and I'm looking to get into strapless waveriding as my main style these days (getting too old to be pulling stunts on twin-tips). I've got s...

Re: flexifoil Hadlow ID

I've got a quiver of these. I like them, they're well constructed and fly well enough. My one gripe, aside from the bar grip (which, as somebody already said, shred your hands) is the relaunch. I've had my kites flip over backwards and invert the lines on me a couple of times. Pretty annoying. I kno...

Switch Combat (9m) for sale

Selling my Switch Combat. Kite has only been used TWICE . Points to Switch, it's extremely stable and has loads of power, but it doesn't really fit my needs. Somebody who's looking to really perfect their wakestyling abilities will get much better use out of it than I will. I've had to patch two sma...
