Re: St Maarten kiteboarding in April

Been going there for years.. Wind can be inconsistence. Local kiters are mostly french. Some are cool but most would rather not talk to you. The local kite school owner can be a bit of a$$hole. Try to rent a board and he refused to rent me one. Had to chase down another instructor to rent it from hi...

You can walk to the huts from any of the Marriott's properties. If you are looking for a vacation that incorporate kiting as an activity,...

Re: Nemesis HP V3 ? anyone tried it

I pumped these 10m HP Nemesis (2011,2009 and 2008) hoping for wind but it never got strong enough to test them against each other.

Re: Le Galion in St Martin Banned!

Theirry, Just wanted to clear up my statement. The cruise ship was mentioned because they bring in a large amount of tourist to Orient Bay. They bring lots of traffics across the launch area. And also this beach attract many swimmers. So stay away from the swim zone. As for Wind Adventure, I have me...

Re: Le Galion in St Martin Banned!

I tried to get more info by talking to the local riders but most only speak French, and very little English. Glad that thierrydehove comfirmed it. While there, I was quite shocked that the approved location ( Orient Bay ) is burdened with danger for kiters and by standers. Some of these are: - The b...
