Re: Discrete lines on Cabrinha Contra

Uh...yes...it's called "normal wear & tear". It happens when kites are used. Hell, I've even had some new kites with that. Nothing to worry about. Tell him he's worrying about nothing.

Re: Naish 2019

The issue I have is that all these brands manufacture in the same place (China) and that generally speaking the price of brand new kites is too high. People then have the tendency to wait for discount deals instead of buying brand new kites. This does not affect the brand but the distributors (i.e....

Re: Naish 2019

I think one of the things they're doing right is significantly marking down last years gear at the end of the season. Last fall I picked up some Pivots at 40% off, brand new but last years model. What that did was get me on the kites. I love them. Wouldn't change a thing. Naish is smart for getting ...

Re: Advice from an older married kiter to a young one

Ditto, I started kiting in 2000 & was married in 2001, still married to the same great woman. #3 is right on the money!!!! #4 "take care of yourself..." again right on the money. as you get older you pickup more long term effects from kiting. I've had broken bones that still don't sit completely rig...

Re: Ambitious kiter looking for a two-kite-quiver

I'm in a windy spot in the US. I am 155 lbs. I have a 2017 Pivot 6 & 8 and I predominantly ride a surboard-directional. I pretty much only kite when it's 6 or 8 & I get a lot of days. I don't miss having a bigger kite than an 8!!!! :o :o :o :o

Re: Swimming Is The Best Exercise....

...... I am 64 in a few weeks, and feel 20 years younger, but once you get into a routine of going to the gym and pool early morning before breakfast the afternoon sessions on the water feel fantastic. it has amazed me how much fitter you need to be to really get the best out of foilboarding, you c...

Swimming Is The Best Exercise....

Just thought I'd share this as I'm pretty stoked about it.... I've been kiting since the beginning of the sport, seen it all:) I've had injuries, broken bones, tendons, etc. I am turning 50 next year & over the last few my balance between kitesurfing & working has led me to a lot of time where I've ...

Re: Setting Yourself Up?

1) Cut your monthly spending as much as possible by reducing unnecessary expenses. Sure, making a ton of money is great, but the absolute size of your account is less relevant than the percentage of it that you're able to invest. So if you can live off $3k/month, that allows you to retire sooner on...
