Re: How to ruin your vacation with Core

Hi after reading the posts on this subject I have to admit I am a bit worried now. First of all, I do not have an informed opinion on Core!

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

Looks like it's at the expense of all those windsurfing kids again. That means all the expert coaches just switch and become expert kite coaches like last time and the same windsurfing kids just switch rides. https://www.sailingillustrated.com/single-post/2017/12/11/Olympics-World-Sailings-radical-p...

Re: Wow - how high is that?

...We do need kite shops, all of us. Besides secretly competing in giving a break on price below MSRP, what added value exactly a remote kite shop provides by selling someone a kite in a box which could be bought from another dozen places?
