Re: Apple Watch 3 Apps

For "Sessions" do you need hardware attached to the board like "Xensr" or is it just an app and the only hardware is the Apple Watch?

Re: benign paroxysmal positional vertigo

I've had vertigo before caused by an inner ear infection. Had it twice actually in fairly close proximity to each other. I was not kiting at the time and I can't imagine even trying as for me movement was very difficult. I mostly stayed put as much as possible. For me to clear up it just took time. ...

Re: Xensr Air

I facebook messaged xensr recently and have had zero response. They have my $$$ already too and I am beginning to fear this company is just a big scam. I hope they are just delayed in production but their lack of response here to previous posts and on FB do not give me much confidence

Re: Bird Strike?

In 3 1/2 years of kiting i never even came close to hitting a bird with my lines or kite. Today was my first day out kiting since reading this topic and a seagull hits its wing on my lines. It briefly spun, regained control, and continued on its way seemingly uninjured.

Re: Cabrinha 2015

When is the best time to buy 2014s and get the best deals before they go out of stock? I need to replace my 2011s.

Re: How to prevent the board to fall off with straps?

I can echo what Toby said. 6 months ago i hit a swell weird and dug the nose of my board into the swell. My lead leg foot came loose, but rear leg foot stayed in strap. Board twisted causing spiral fracture of the femur, then i fell over from the board stopping quickly while at speed and femur snapp...

Re: Now "That" was a Spendy two days !!

Last season my Nacra 5.2 saw about 10 days vs over 100 in the seasons pre-kiting. This season it is still in storage and I'm seriously considering selling it. It is fun to take others out on the water but how often do i really do that?? The kite is just so much more fun!

Re: Kite surfing in LA area help please :)

If you were to bring one kite I'd suggest 12m. Maybe 10m on a surfboard. Typical wind speeds for mid July mid teens to upper teens.
