Re: old fart round the world tour

Can think of one place that meets all your criteria quite close by.
San Andres Isla Colombia, specifically Chamey's.

Re: WOO on Android problem, needs Google Account?

Thank you for the suggestions. I believe that no amount of data tracking is a good thing. In 2003 I wrote to the BBC about the future of mobiles, and predicted the smart phone, I saw where it was going. I also saw biometric linking to devices so that the authorities knew you were in x location, not ...

Re: WOO on Android problem, needs Google Account?

Umm thanks Dylan, but no. To me kiting is very personal, I don't want to show off, or compete, I just want to know my height, so I guess WOO should have put that in their terms and conditions. Funny that they just assume everyone has one. Anybody know of a non social sharing accelerometer based devi...

Re: WOO on Android problem, needs Google Account?

No, you do NOT need a google account to operate an android phone. They like to make you think you do. I bought my phone online from geekbuying.com its a 4 band 2 sim device, running Android 4.2.2 (its about 3 years old) Got a prepaid sim, no names needed. Everything works, using it now as a hotspot....

WOO on Android problem, needs Google Account?

I was recently given a WOO as a gift. I tried to connect to my android phone. A message pops up "Woo Sports wont run unless you update Google Play Services" and then proceeds to ask for my Google Account username and password. I don't have a Google account. I never will have one. I have written to W...

Re: Beginner Board Advice: Door vs Regular Large

Im going to fly in the face of convention again. Big boards suck to learn on. They get you planing allright! but kiting is almost never planing, its on the edge. A 50cm lever is a hell of a thing for the new kiter to edge. A big board will result in more faceplants during learning, absolutely. I wou...

Re: Healing power of sugar?

I don't know much about Sugar, but I want to contradict some info above. My wife and I live permanently at sea on our sailboat. We spend a lot of time in the water, kiting, spearfishing etc. Here is what we have learned: Any disinfectant containing Iodine (Betadine etc) should not be used to disinfe...

Re: Does the core bar unwind your center line twists?

Yes. Ok I know I'm going to get flamed for not checking gear before going out but...I had to laugh. A few weeks ago, three of us were out, I was on my Edge 9m and my friend was taking turns with me. Another friend was there with his Core 9m XR4. While I was waiting for my turn on my kite, he came to...
