Is Playa del carmen still kiteable

Planning a winter trip to playa del Carmen Mexico and hope to kite while there. I wont have a lot of time and did not want to travel north of Cancun. Older posts from 2014 talked about the beaches near Playa del Carmen restricting kiting due to crowds of beach users and swimmers. Does anyone know if...

Re: Happy Halloween!

as for most bad experiences in kiting, for me they happened to quickly to be scared. More of the Oh Sh!! and then react as quickly as possible, even when being drug down under water by death spiraling kite. But the scary part is when you have way to much time to think about it. I have to explain the...

Re: Anyone kite Belize blue hole?

No, and for numerous reasons. 1. It is a long boat ride from any of the inhabited Cayes. 2. No beach to land or launch, meaning you would have to boat launch. 3. Coral, coral and more coral to tear up you and your kite and the bottom of your board. 4. It is a protected marine reserve. 5. There are u...

Re: Warm weather kitesurfing and triathlon training

Just take care to protect your ankles. An inadvertant sprain a few weeks before your race can undo all the training you have done for months. If you find that you are progressing to starting jumps, just remember to grip those pads with your toes to keep the board on both feet.

Re: Reel Leesh

If you are really thinking of using a reel leash then conect it to board with a plastic zip tie. The small sized ones. Then it will be fine if the board comes off in wreck but break if it is loaded up with strain. That way you will not have a projectile shooting at you. Did that for a season before ...

Way to good to be true? Scam kite site.

I first thought I had made the kite discovery of the year but a little investigation showed that it is just a scam to get you to send your details to an uknown source. The site is 1stpowerkites.com? The prices seem like some sort of joke. Bu...
