Re: Speculation surrounding the legitimacy of Hadlows KOTA w

not necessarily Tone. One example: strapless freestyle... Nah. No non kiter will be interested in strapless airstyle. Sure its technically very impressive for the guys actually doing it or interested in it. Lets face it the kota is where where kiting shines. Most other disciplines copy other sports...

Re: Marc Jacobs at North Kite now ?

I wonder if the sport is not at a much lesser level of sophistication most people think it is

Re: Just moved to Lisbon, looking for locals to kite with

Outside summer season you´ll get mostly kite time w/ shitty weather, meaning will be blowing from ~S/SE. In Lisbon get a train in Cais do Sodré heading Cascais, step out in Carcavelos, walk 500m, kite. You won´t need a car :-)

He was using a 12 in conditions I did not even bother to get my gear to the sand, I was wow!

Re: Again Fatality in South of France

What I'm missing in this discussion: Why did the more experienced kiters on the spot not try to stop him? If I saw a beginner on a spot in these conditions I'd make it pretty clear to him that if he lauches he will most probably crash/possilbly kill himself. Not trying to be smart after the fact, j...

Re: Again Fatality in South of France

but did someone try to stop him?

i know it´s hard to tell others what to do, but a 9m on a 40knots weather scream loud enough that someone is going to get hurt

if some were around but no one bother himself to at least try to stop him, then sorry but the locals deserve to have their spot closed

Re: Portugal - Lisbon

Just out of curiosity, how comes that in one beach (Nova Vaga) Kitesurfing is restricted to a certain area and 200-300 meters away (Bela Vista) is allowed without any restrictions (?) I’m just asking as I want to be sure that I won’t go against any local law. In certain countries I saw posts/signs,...

Re: Portugal - Lisbon

the new set-up is pretty much Capi´s love dream :superfly: by other hand now is actually legal to kitesurf in the designated areas without having to guard a certain distance from land the captain´s notice goes as far as telling the other beachgoers that they can still use the area for baths and stuf...

Re: Portugal - Lisbon

"eternally thankful"? I like that! :-) the shallow water locations I know, lagoons and stuff like that, are off limites to kitesurf on the summer months, so you will need to stick with the ocean Try "Praia da Nova Vaga, Costa da Caparica", or "Fonte da Telha, Costa da Caparica" in Lisbon south margi...
