Re: Researching kiteboarding locations

When learning if you have a choice between South Texas (South Padre and Corpus) and the West coast there really is no question IMO: you should go to Texas. I have lived and kited in both. South Texas is much easier and more user friendly for learning than anywhere else in the country (except the Out...

Re: Do I need a wetsuit for la ventana Mexico next week?

I would say at least a spring suit. I was there a couple of weeks ago and wore a spring with a long sleeve 1 mil top over that and was fine even on El Nortes. However, most people were in 3/2s. Since your location says Florida not New England, I would bring some rubber, but not more than a 3/2.

Re: Extreme itch due to wetsuit? Fresh water? red dry blotches..

The Yulex thing is really interesting. Yulex is actually not the name of the rubber but the name of the company. The rubber is called "guayule" (Parthenium argentatum). It has a lot going for it. It is a non food source that basically grows and can be cultivated in the desert requiring little water....

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

I think what is interesting in this question is the time period. Six years is right on the bubble. I think my answer to five years and my answer to seven years would be quite different. My reference is wave kites. My kites from 5 years ago are only slight improvements. My kites from seven or eight y...

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...
