Any old floaty twin tips out there?

Any for sale? I'm looking for something like the Wipika Olry (186). Used to have a big ol' Stonker that was great for waves as well. Anybody?

Thanks!

Vent plug -- leave in or take out?

I'm new to racing, and just got my first board (2011 Venturi). There's a vent plug that screws in. Should I unscrew it every time I store the board? Or is that just to allow expansion / evaporation inside the board in hot weather?

Thanks!

Kitesurfing St. Louis, MO

I'm in St. Louis, MO for the next few months (can't help it -- I go where they tell me to). I've checked out http://www.windfunstl.com, but it doesn't seem to have been updated for a few years. Anybody know where to kite (on water)?

Thanks.

Re: Kiting Long Island in June

Thanks -- that seems like the best bet so far. Still not sure about parking.

Kiting Long Island in June

I'm stuck on LI for the next two weeks (Glen Cove, western part), looking for launches within 1hr drive. Went exploring today, but Jones beach looks PACKED with people. Is there anywhere oceanside that's away from the crowds? With parking? How about soundside?

Thanks.

I'm attending a work conference in Glen Cove, NY (on LI) this June, but intend to kitesurf most of the time. Any tips on nearby launches?

Who needs a $2500 Speed3?

I think this is serious: http://www.mademan.com/mm/how-make-kite-surfing-kites.html Quoting: Learning how to make surfing kites doesn't have to be such a daunting task.

Non-freezing cold injury

Has anyone experienced non-freezing cold injury? The tips of my fingers are still numb after a snow-kiting session yesterday (pain was INTENSE, but they never froze). What's the treatment/prognosis?

Thanks.
