Re: Florianopolis in October/November?

November is windiest month there. It is a great place. Mostly will be empty. The real tourist season is Jan-Feb.
Lots of location. There is even a lake in the middle of the island. They have a small kite school there.

Re: Global Kiteboarding Population

I think it is quite a low number. I would estimate the max number of kitesurfers as the total through put of all the kite schools over the last 10 years. Active kiters in the world are less then 50k.

Re: What is the biggest risk self launching?

NEVER do that self launch!
Just a question of time when you will get badly injured.
ALWAYS use a tethered method, when you attach your bar to a fixed object.
That is not 100% safe but a magnitude less risky.

Re: No more Naish Park HD in 2017 ?

I am disappointed too! I was waiting for the 2017 Park to get new kites.
Something must be wrong with me. I loved the Helix; Naish killed it. Then I had the Bolts the only sigma option left. After I used the Parks. Now with the same fate.
What would be the closest in comparison? Maybe the 2017 RPM?

Re: Which Kite brands are the Best?

I think the best way would be to decide is to see the selling price of 2014 kites on ebay. Somebody can do a little research and see what is the final selling price of let say size 12 2014 kites. Average it out and the one with highest is the best kite brand. What do you think?

Re: Don't buy Naish! Unless you're feeling lucky!

Look, the dude bought 3 new kites. On one the first sessions his new kite got ripped in half. He says he didn't do anything extraordinary. He sends the kite back on his own expense. BELIEVE HIM! He is most likely an honest man.Get him a new kite of the same size. He payed the outrageous full price t...

Re: How to Self Land Your Kite

It is a dangerous and unnecessary way of landing a kite. Always land it fixed otherwise your luck will run out sooner or later.

Re: Ocean Rodeo: Introducing Flight Plan - Lease New Kites

An other thing I would do if I were to have a kite company: I would offer to apply 50% of the original price of the kite towards the purchase of a new one within a year. The kite has to be in decent shape no holes or other obvious damage. It would really make me buy a new kite lot more readily if I ...
