Re: Sure bet places for wind?

Paracas, Peru. I am not sure the exact season, but I think it is December - April. I was there for a week in November and thermal wind was on every day. I was very skeptical the first day when the wind was blowing around 5 knots at 10 am. by 2 pm it was a consistent 17-19 knots. Warm and flat water ...

Re: Winter wetsuit recommendations

5/4 Xcel Drylock with a hood gets me through the winter in NY for kite and surf. Water temps can get down to the 30s F and air temps range from 20s to 50s F depending on the day.

Re: all kite reviews are garbage. What really matters.

I have never seen a negative review from a kite mag or shop's youtube vids. Most of it seems to be marketing. It is impossible that all kites in a given size for a particular riding style are above average. Some have to be better, and some worse. For the OP, I am 190 lbs, intermediate on a twin tip,...
