Re: Anyone else dodging "flying fish"?

I'd rather fish fly at me than mangy filthy seagulls flying into my lines and kite :o Funny! I have had 2 seagull/line hits while on the ocean. But here, in the dead center of the US, I had to abandon thoughts of kiting on a local reservoir because there were 10,000+ seagulls on the lake. I did not...

Re: Controlling Speed

Go old school. Drop the kite just above the water and edge your board as hard as needed, you'll slow down as much as you want to,play the angle to wind to make adjustments. This is also a remedy for the new age, dreaded poo stance! :movingbutt: BAM!!! Old school C-kites required you to edge upwind ...

Re: Core kites and kiteboarding industry sales this year

I would say God would be more on iriejohn side, just "facepalming" with regards to the whole thing. And spewing hate for those who hold religions views, in opposition to yours and mine, is not an effective way to enlighten them. It just makes us look like a-- holes, and creates extreme resistance t...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

You imply the green church has all the answers? I'd suggest it is fundamentally disconnected from the reality. 1. Humans vs nature dichotomy is the norm. Humans as part of nature never even enter the thought. Something only someone utterly disconnected from nature, only someone who lives in modern ...

All this name calling, you'll have Peter Frank to answer to, you know! He won't have it!
Peter Frank makes some great points! I would be happy to have him chime in here. I would be even more happy if he presents a dissenting view as that is what I value the most. You too, badby!

Re: Core kites and kiteboarding industry sales this year

Price would largely be determined by supply and demand. This is only true (main factor) in commodities with no differentiation between brands - perceived or real. Since it is easy to create differentiation via trend setting and fashion (hype), the kite market does not play strictly by supply and de...
