Re: Hello-new member in Canada

Where in Canada are you? Lot's of kiters across the country and if you've got kitable water (or snow) there should be a kiting community to watch out for you as you advance. Also lots of warm water this summer!

Re: Holbox Mexico

If the winds come from due east which they do this time of year as the tradewinds develop, El Cuyo is less kiteable than Holbox. El Cuyo has deeper off the beach ...

Re: Holbox Mexico

Big Sky is correct, bring pesos. My apologies for not mentioning the ATM problems. 500p notes are fine but you might have to have a cocktail at a hotel to break it smaller.
