Re: The Video Topic - post all videos here

Here is my first kite video. That's my 12th session kiteboarding so you won't see crazy tricks, but you will get an idea of the conditions in New York last Sunday.

Re: Crandon Beach Park Key Biscayne Miami FL: Rules Enforced

Good to know.
I will be in Miami first week of January and was planning to kite at Crandon beach park.

Re: Fire island

Usually people launch from Overlook beach or Cedar beach on Jones beach then cross to Fire island and hang out there (can be fun to come back before wind dies in summer) Due to season and parking/beach permit restrictions it is hard to launch directly from Fire island. Try those facebook groups: Wav...

Re: Kite sizes for north jersey kiting

I kite in brooklyn or longisland whenever there is wind. i have heard sandy hook is a great spot. it looked pretty windy in late summer compared to brooklyn and longisland. You should have a lot of fun. I am sure if you show up a day where it is 15 knots + there will be plenty of kiters around. Tomo...

Re: Kitesurfing and ear problems!

While riding pretty fast and falling you are likely to hit the water with your head sideways.
I think i have sustained slight damaged to my ear with water rushing in, after a week or so it healed.

I have a friend who is always wearing a helmet which covers ears for that reason.

I might get an 8m or a 9m down the line but I will probably just use the same large bar. You just get a little more ...

Re: Formula for maximum sail speed vs wind speed?

One thing you haven't covered is those answeres is apparent wind effect. It is true that drag, friction limit the speed, that's why racer uses special boards and line to limit friction. The ability of the kite to go upwind is really what limits the speed in normal wind range. As you go faster cross ...

Re: F-One bar - how to wrap up bar in self rescue +inverted

I was taking a lesson and had same issue on Saturday. Wind died and kite fell out of the sky between one of the back line and front line resulting in the kite being inverted. When you get tension on the line you see that one of the back line is wrapped over the center line. To fix it my instructor t...
