Re: Any self taught out there?!

One of my kite-buds and I met while "taking lessons"...we both consider ourselves self-taught. Our "instructor" would have our kites rigged prior to the lessons...so we never were taught how to rig. While on land, he would fly the kite and explain the basic left and right, sheet-in/sheet-out. Then h...

Re: Airline Pilots, Kiteboard on Layovers?

If you find a favorite spot and lay over there frequently...consider getting a 2nd rig and keeping it at your carrier's baggage claim office or operations office.

Re: Sure bet places for wind?

Next weekend will be my 4th trip to the Happy Island of Aruba. I've never been skunked and it appears my trip next weekend will again be epic.

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

The Dallas/Ft Worth crews are spread out over a few lakes in the area. I would presume your friend was speaking of Lake Ray Hubbard. Our winds here are predominately out of the South which has riders on Lake Ray Hubbard, Lake Lavon, Lake Ray Roberts, & Benbrook Lake in Ft Worth. North winds are alwa...

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

Hey good2go, I'm in N. Texas as well and our wind season here has been quite limited the last few years. Driving down to Corpus is your best bet for lessons and relatively consistent winds (as well as shallow, flat water to learn in). Wait until you're through with lessons before buying gear and use...

Re: below the bar trim

I also use Naish's BTB trim and agree it is very hard to pull the trim rope when the kite is powered. Yet I've found the easiest way to trim the kite
is during turns..that slight bit of downwind puts a small window of slack in the line to pull the rope.

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...
