Re: Aruba Offshore Kiting 12m or 14m

I recommend a 12m(and you'll prolly still be overpowered).
Plus make the drive to Boca Grandi at least once while you're there for some steady onshore vs gusty offshore.

Re: Kiteboarding in the Caribbeans in June

Aruba...I recommend you stay on the east side of the island...yet the only thing to do on this side is kite. Stay at kite-inn.com $80/nt (cold a/c, hot shower) Baby Beach for butter but you can only kite there from sunrise to 9am. Boca Grandi Beach is available 24hr/day cuz its always windy but it i...

Re: Riding without sunglasses

Pterygium is commonly called "surfer's eye," you don't have to be a surfer or ever see the ocean to get a pterygium. But being in bright sunlight for long hours — especially when you are on water, which reflects the sun's harmful UV rays — increases your risk. eye.jpg https://www.aao.org/eye-health/...

Re: Ride vs Pivot- Jump Height?

Pivot will give you a little more of what you're wanting.

Yet, all-in-all...the difference between these two models is negligible.
If you're going to change kites for significant increase in height and hang-time; a high-aspect kite would be the way to go.

Re: 2013 Best Kahoona + 10.5m vs 2007 Waroo 11m

I doubt changing kites will make any significant difference in your progression. Both kites are all-around kites yet the Kahoona is a bit more of a wave-style kite...meaning it will fly a little lower in the wind window. Yet because it will fly lower in the window...it could hamper your upwind progr...

Re: so i tried kitesurfing, seems dangerous.

I have been in a few situations, hundreds of meters away from the shoreline, in chop/waves with a downed kite. I couldn't imagine a person lacking water skills being able to withstand the constant extremes of cold water, chop, waves, and wind; all while attempting to avoid getting tangled in lines. ...
