Re: What's the dumbest thing you have seen a newbie do?

Retrieved a guys board and dropped it off downwind for him after watching him struggle to body drag with his kite at 12 o’clock the entire time. When I asked him about it afterwards he said it was too windy to fly the kite at the edge of the window?

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

Let it be known, I have only ever used one handle at a time. No multiple accounts. That shit is weak. And this place has most def jumped the shark. Was banned simply for being critical of Toby. No hate. Simple opinion, with plenty of out in the open examples of his behaviour cited. Nothing new, its...

Re: Choose between 3 big boards

Shinn king gee 146/46 and a 14m kite works for me to about 14 kts. I’m the same weight, I won’t bother with any wind less than that.

Re: Playa del carmen Kite

We stayed at the Dreams in Puerto Morelos last Feb. Wind was light most days, but still got in 3 nice sessions. There was a stretch of beach next door perfect to set up on, I think it was a public portion. Lots of people on the beach and you had to avoid the swimming areas of course. Other than that...

Re: Are we all jacking up our necks???

La Ventana in spring.... and your surprised? Crashes are one thing, but ergonomics are another. Kiting is no different than cycling or skiing or any other weekend warrior sport favored by middle aged people. I would say that at least half the general kiteboarding population are less than fit, and d...

Re: so i tried kitesurfing, seems dangerous.

OK thx and assuming I get that 14m kite at my weight what is the max wind speed before I would need a 2nd smaller kite? At 220+, I've ridden the last few years with a 14 and 11. Combined with a large and medium board, I can ride 90% of the wind here. I just picked up an 8 and a smaller board for th...

Re: Warning about the cheap GoPro mounts

Bought one of those kits with multiple mounts an other accessories for GoPro, half of them are already broken. Be wary of the floats that come with backdoor included, mine failed on me in the ocean and let salt water in. Camera was pooched for two days before I luckily got it working again. $350 cam...

Re: Twintip Advice for Heavy Rider

See if you can try out a Shinn King Gee. Picked one up last year, best money I've spent in kiting so far. I'm 225lbs and my main kite is a 14m. It's touted as a light wind board for heavier riders, its got a little rocker and jumps fairly well. Mine is the 146/46 and I've used it in 20 kts with a sm...

Re: Why doesn't everybody side rig their lines in launch position?

My method of launch tends to be site specific. At one site I rig my lines downwind, walk 90 deg to kite and launch. Another spot I rig upwind and roll my lines up and self water launch or get someone to walk with my kite into the water and launch. Another spot I usually rig upwind roll the lines up ...
