Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

The thing about doors is that despite being able to go incredibly early, It's always a door! Glassing along.... on a door. They carve.... like a door. The take off and land.... like a door. They surf like a door. A door is just never great. Surfboards are a pretty broad category.... some start earl...

Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

I agree with Starsky. 8-12 knots is Hydrofoil. Having loads of fun and re-challenging myself after discovering the Foil. I am done with big kites and big boards and schlogging around. Still like to fly the big 14.5m and 17m in +13knots and enjoy getting ripped off the water. But if there is no boost...

Re: Ocean Roadeo Flight 10m good kite?

8-10 knots is 10m Flite and Hydrofoil for me. So yes it is a lightwind kite, but performs great in high winds too.

Re: The new Ocean Rodeo Mako featuring Bliss air Pads and Straps

Disclaimer: I use, teach, and sell OR gear. I don't normally come on and pimp ...but just had a great weekend with new Mako, and these new footpads are really dreamy.

Re: Protection against the sun

I should add that it has to be in your system for a couple weeks first...so 2-4 capsules a day

I live in Ontario. So will use this in summer, and if head south on any kiting trips.

Re: Protection against the sun

I take Beta Carotene capsules. I find it helps quite a bit, its not total protection. I can tolerate longer time in the sun and dont get burned as harshly. The capsules are like a liguid gel inside. Not the lighter "powder-like" dry pills. Someone told me about it in Cabarete once. Gives you a nice ...

Re: First fatal accident in our local beginner Bay Area beach

I see a bad habit among many kiteboarders in my area. After giving thumbs up...Why are we so quick to send the kite up? Yes it is cool to see a kite lift off and we are anxious to get to the water....but with this little habit of wanting to bring the kite up to 11 or 12oclock too quickly there is no...
