Thames is very centrally located.Auckland harbour has a west side and an east facing side.I am trying to think what the Heads are called on the west coast,its been 15 years since I was last in NZ.I know for sure you could kite there and Raglan is another great west coast location,also not far from T...

fermanus is right.I have said it before,the windward beaches on Kauai do not have save easy access for beginners.The local people,I am talking about real locals who like to fish or spend the day with their keiki[children] relaxing at the beach, will not tolerate idiot kiters who come too close or ch...

The best glue in my opinion is Aquaseal,available at most dive shops.It is a urethane adhesive,requires overnight dry time,but has repaired many nipples and major bladder patches. :bye:

Thanks for your advice,my X2's and boxers will need replacing soon and the torch sounds like another good all around kite from Naish.I am able to get great deals on the X4 but am scared away hearing it is full on and powerful with little to no depower.I can get a better deal on a V4 than the torch,w...

I also recently made the switch to a waist harness.I am enjoying the freedom in carving turns and so much more comfortable without the the 'ball straps'.It does require a change in technique,leaning back with your upper body and keeping your body straighter as you do so.No more bending at the waist ...
