Re: Kiteboarding Asia (Mid October)

Which places SSK ? I think this is the beginning of the season for a lot of SE Asia. I lived in Okinawa which has the same weather pattern to Taiwan, only Taiwan is amplified a few hundred notches. It was pretty fun in Oct. Have not been there, but I believe that Vietnam, Thailand, and the PI are a...

Re: Where to kite in January

I can guarantee you it will be very windy and warm in Baja. Bring small kites.

Re: Kiteboarding Asia (Mid October)

I know its very bad and shitty in october to kitesurf in Asia.
What? That is a bizarre statement. Asia is really big, but a good chunk of it is firing in October. For sure Taiwan is firing as posted. A lot of other places are too.

Re: lost slingshot glide board in Cap Hatteras

I did the same thing, and have also found 3 boards floating in the sound or in the marsh. So do not feel that bad, you are not the first. Definitely email all the shops, people often turn them in.

Re: Your worst kitesurf injury ?

Here is a strange one. I was in the ocean on a long downwinder. I just jumped off my board to take a break on the outside beyond the surf. When I eventually reached back to grab my board I put pressure on the nose which raised the tail into the air. The wind caught the tail and whipped it into my fa...

Re: Private lesson in North Carolina

Blown Island doesn't close due to power outages it's a sandbar. If power isn't restored to the OBX it's a no-brainer For someone who has lived in both places for an extended time, it is not comparable. When it is blowing 20-25 in OBX it is blowing 10-15 in Emerald isle. The OP said they were lookin...

Re: Strapless board for a big guy

There is a volume point that corresponds to rider weight. At my weight (80kg) its around 30l. 30L? Seems like a pretty corky board for someone at that weight, unless you are riding pretty light wind conditions. I am a little under that and most people I know are on 20-25L at that weight. We ride mo...
