Hello,

Does anyone have experience with Firewire surfboards for kiting? Durability, performance, etc?

I went to Play Copal two years in a row, I think 04/05 and it was very windy both times. There are several places to stay. If you want to go cheap you could stay with the italian guy there for ~$12 a day for a bunk, and it sounds like there are more options now. Sure folks have more current updates ...

Zero to Hero was a whitewhater kayaking move in which you went from upside down to a cartwheel (on end) in a in a quick move of the torso and paddle. That was the term far prior to kiteboarding existing as far as I know.

Board size for advanced female riders

Hello,

My girlfriend is ~ 120lbs and moving to be an intermediate rider...

Curious what size board most advanced gals ride when powered up (7/9M kites)...

What sizes do the gals on the PKRA ride?

Thank You...

Inserts?

surftech/kite wrote:we are in the process of making a section for the kite boards. would that help?
What would help the most is specifying which ones come with inserts vs. which ones are just "happen to be sized to be conducive to kiting"....

Maybe I am missing it...
