Re: OBX kite repair experience and recommendation

Charlie does very good work. Helmut (it's German) also does good work, but works in the Tri-Villages area during the primary season and not during the colder months. You'll usually find Helmut in Texas (Corpus area) during the winter.

Re: Tips for learning to kite with a prosthetic leg.

I don't know if Sean Reyngoudt is on this forum or even if he's still kiting.......I really hope so! A few years ago, he was "da' man" with a prosthetic on a kiteboard or wakeboard. I'm sure he'd be a good resource if you can find him. http://www.prostheticorthoticdesigns.com/inspire/our-clients/sea...

Re: Board Graphic Delaminating.

Hey, Lxt. If it's any consolation, I had exactly the same problem with one of my boards, followed the same procedure as you did (but also added a weight to the top of the board while the epoxy dried), and ended up with an identical result. I'm not sure why the ripples appeared in the laminate. In th...

Re: any tips for boat launch or similar?

I've done a lot of kite launches off of boats of various sizes and jet skis. IMHO, a "boat launch" and a "paddleboard launch" are two different animals. A paddleboard really doesn't have enough stability to be of any benefit beyond providing flotation to keep you out of the water until the kite is d...

Re: Dear old Nobile 666 and 555

I agree with prior posts. If you can find a "new" old Nobile TT (2007-2008 vintage) at a good price (they were expensive boards for that era), it will be a great investment. They are very nice boards. :thumb:

Re: Any self taught out there?!

Two days ago, I watched a strong, fit 20-something man get dragged face-first across the beach by a 9 m kite. He first tomahawked the kite into another person on the beach, and then looped it again while he was being dragged towards some power lines. Luckily, someone grabbed his kite before he hit t...
