Re: Damien LeRoy Injured in Paraglider Crash

His wing was nice and stable. All of the powered paragliders in here are going to agree what he did was not his best option. You only release from the harness if you are absolutely sure you are going to crash land in the water and only at a much lower height. He clearly was in a panic as he even for...

This + Kite = Low Wind Bliss?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTdAqrXm9ck#t=134 I have seen other electric boards on the market which let you paddle out faster, but these are the first I have seen that really scream. Anyone tried to combine an electric board like this with a kite? Seems like the perfect combo for light wind days...

Board Rental in BVI

I am flying into St. Thomas on Saturday and taking a ferry to Tortola where some friends and I will be picking up a boat charter for the week. I am bringing my kite and other gear, but will not be able to bring my board. So far I have been unsuccessful at finding someone who will rent boards in St. ...

Probably horrible to kite on if you could kite on it at all.
I'm pretty sure it only weighs 15 lbs more than a regular board
16lbs is what they claim on their website... plus the wristband that acts as your wireless 'throttle.'

Re: Western australia warning

I wouldn't at all be surprised if the growing shark cage diving tourism industry in southern Oz and South Africa is not helping to promote aggressive behavior you guys are experience. South Africa has even worse shark problems than you guys (they have full time spotters at some beaches) and you guys...

Re: Learning Directional, straps or strapless

Great to hear you were able to launch in TN and get a session. Do you have any friends out on KY Lake with an inboard wakeboat with ballast and a tower? I practice quite a bit behind my boat and it definitely helps. Wakesurfing is the best crossover sport I can think of for strapless kitesurfing. Th...

Re: Lake Kiting and drift launching from boats

Have you been able to get consistent wind enough to kitesurf on KY lake yet? What wind tracker are you using in that area?

Re: Best Kiteboarding being tight as f**k to Gin Kiteboardin

As long as Apple doesn't start getting into kites, I think everyone will play nicely with each other. They sure made a mess of the mobile/computer landscape with all of their patent trolling and crying :baby: : http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_0X1ggm5ZqsA/TK4sbfUud9I/AAAAAAAAI0Y/rXYmYknYaLU/s1600/Apple+Law...
