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.

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

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/...
