Who's kitesurfed St. Marianita in Ecuador?

Thinking of taking a summer adventure/kite trip to Ecuador. Considering staying in Manta and kiting in Santa Marianita. Any kiters on this forum spend any extended summer vacations there? Advice? Thanks!

Re: The best Kite for heavy riders????

I ride in NorCal (a windy place) and weigh 240 lbs., 6'3" too. I'm usually on surfboards and my quiver is 8-meter Rebel and 10 and 12-meter Vegas. I really like the whipping of the Vegas in bigger sizes and feel that the Rebel is best when nuking. Remember, you and I are only operating the kite in t...

Re: Sherman Island

The island has delivered in an inconsistent way so far this year. Lots of opportunities if you are staying on-site but if you run out there for an hour or two you might get skunked. Yesterday blew all morning and then, after-work, it fizzled out. Yes, Little Baja is open for business. Super-dry year...

New Vegas settings?

The new Vegas came in the "freeride" mode with pigtails already set for this riding style. I want to try the other combinations too, but in the literature it was a little bit unclear what is recommended. Can the front lines/back lines be moved fore/aft without regard for the position of the other pa...

Re: Cabrinha team fills podium in the 2012 La Ventana Classi

Yeah, I think the full results here would have been a bit more complete and to leave Adam, Johnny and (sister) Erica off the list was probably just an oversight on Toby's part. Ozone kites are damn fast around a race course (obviously) and it's interesting that while Koch has been nipping at the hee...

Re: North ripping off Ozone's designs....shame on you North

If your design goals include competitive course-racing, why wouldn't you take a very close look at the Ozone (race-winning!) kites? If they DON'T study other designs, call me surprised! Shame on manufacturers if they aren't testing side-by-side with other brands-- it just pushes us all forward!

Re: Dissapointed by North quality

I agree with Toby-- sounds rare (and unlucky on your vacation!) I have used North products for many years because of excellent quality-- never had any problems myself, except for the T-connectors in the original one-pump system (and that issue arose quite a long time ago...)

Re: what board is Heineken riding?

http://vimeo.com/27489743 (Discussion of tactics and his gear here.) Yes, Mike's Lab boards are at the top of the podium as they have been in windsurfing for years. He is a talented man indeed!
