Re: According to Google Trends, kiteboarding is declining in popularity

Great observations. Adding. IKAs involvement in kite surfing bummed out a lot of kiters as they tried to steal kiteboarding, they really missed the pkra days and simply couldn't believe IKA claimed authority of waveriding and freestyle despite knowing nothing about it/ no previous experience. Pros w...

You do a very good job of it/ questions. Good work!

Thought about chucking it on YouTube with Skype footage even? I hate YouTube but they got good leverage for listeners/ viewers. You can kind of SEO YouTube too.

Re: According to Google Trends, kiteboarding is declining in popularity

Re: Tight battle in three divisions for coveted YOG qualifier spots

Jayzuz. If that is true that is so messed up! Kind of what might happen when you invent a new sport format for Olympic advertising revenue and send out a bunch of super inexperienced ( in some cases they have never raced this new invention before in others they are not far off beginners) youth that ...

Re: Nick Jacobsen injured

In medicine a fracture and break are the same thing.

Good luck to him, everyone is different, but I was thinking 6 months when I was told a year back to full strength. I was pretty upset!

Re: Nick Jacobsen injured

That is what I did 10 months ago. Ligament usually snaps too. Immediately move back in with your parents is my advice if you can... It is a seriously sh1t injury to get. Takes a year to fully heal usually. I can kite again but still only waveriding right now. Big shame, but a long break and back int...
