Re: Where to Kite in cancun?

Just as an update since no one answered. Wind was side on from the south east. Waves were somewhat disorganized and around 3 meters but breaking close to shore. Lifeguard said that there is no problem to kite in front of the hotels in the hotel zone. (I am at the JW marriott). Right now we are getti...

Where to Kite in cancun?

It is weird, every single post or article focuses on isla blanca or the beach near the wet and wild. But no one addresses the obvious question Is kitesurfing (launching/landing) in the hotel zone, in front of the hotels, allowed? If it is allowed, are the conditions relatively safe? (plenty of room,...

Re: kiteboarding santa barbara

When I was there a few years ago (before the foil craze) 4 guys were out on 10m in super light wind, all on foils. I was amazed.. The wind is light and so you will want a foil.

Re: Best Way to Fly with Gear in 2017

I have flown quite a bit with my gear. I pack two kites, pump, bar harness, clothes into a check in rolling duffle bag. I take my 132x42board apart, take foot straps, fins, and handle off so it is totally flat. Then I wrap it in a cardboard box and get it as thin as possible. it is close to the allo...

Re: Trainer said no more lessons, just buy

One of the issues might be that you need to point your board down wind when you dive the kite to get some speed. Beginners have a tendency to want to keep their board perpendicular to the wind which can cause supermans and make it much harder to get going. I would prob just buy equipment at this poi...

Re: selecting a kiteboard

just wanted to give an update. I definitely like the monk it is super smooth in chop and doesnt have much less face spray. Something I discovered though is that the setup can tremendously impact the board spray I started with narrow stance and felt like it needed to be wider. I set the straps to the...

Re: About to buy new glasses for kiting...any recommendations

I lose glasses (with straps) every few sessions.

I bought a box of oakley or something copies on ebay. The glasses came to about $4 each or something.

Even with straps you are going to lose them if you crash hard enough. If you wear a helmet that buckles the glasses will stay on.
