Re: Costa Rica - Kitehouse or Blue Dream

+1 for Blue Dream/Nicola and his crew. Had a great time two years ago in January. Very friendly and good vibe. Good food at Blue Dream and Ulfs outdoor Grill Restaurant was really good. The wind is hard core, brought my 6,7 and 10. Would have even wanted my 5m Storm kite. It was a bit like our low p...

Be aware Mystic KRS

Ok - first hand (or so to speak) experience. I've been kitesurfing for 13 years. I'm missing right arm below elbow since birth and use a loop on the right side of the bar for support on my elbow for normal kitesurfing control. Ever since day one I've been scared of that loop snagging on to the harne...

Re: Building a Plywood Shinnster / BRM Paipo

Two things I've learned the hard way: Use stainless inserts (snowboard ones dont bottom out) and cut sheet with top/bottom running lengthwise :)

Re: Iceland in july - what winds to expect?

No such thing as kiteboarding.is (I would know). We hang out in a closed facebook group called: 'Kite Grúbban' (hehe original). Yes, frontals but nowhere near 35 knots during the summertime, winter yes. 5-25 would be closer. June-July is often pretty calm. I would suggest something big for that time...

Re: Best Directional board to learn on

+1 for the Duke. Learnt on a Celeritas with a front strap. Only tried it strapless a few times - my Duke is strapless and I'm loving it! More lively and suits better for the choppy stuff we get.

Kitesurfing in Costa Dorada, Spain in June

Hi there, If someone has some info, please share. Going on a family vacation second week of June to Salou, Costa Dorada. Should I bring gear or is all kitesurfing access closed down during high season? Will be renting a car so commuting isn't a problem, but by the looks of things I don't find promis...

Re: The Duke - A Nobel Addition To The OR Mako Family

Just got back to cold Iceland from the OR event at OBX. Been riding a Celeritas 2012 for about two years with a front footstrap in chop and small waves. Read somewhere that might make things easier learning gybes. Got gybes now under my belt but wanted to progress to strapless and something more. Be...

Re: Kiting in 50-60 knots

Thanks guys, knew I could rely on your knowledge to confirm this. Today we had a good session on 7-8m kites in 5° C. Drysuit season is upon us now - not too bad if you have the equipment :D

Re: Kiting in 50-60 knots

30-40 knots over here feels plenty! Up north here in the middle of the Atlantic me and my friend are the only ones out with the windsurfers above 30 knots. Our low pressure cold wind is very much on/off so we find the OR Storm the perfect weapon of choice. Before that I was using a 6m 1st gen OR Raz...
