Re: What is the international signal for "Abort launch"?

I posted these hand signals in 2002 on here, as no one else was really proposing a uniform set of signals at the time.

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

fact is brands generally dont support youth in kiteboarding any more, they target high income /retired older riders. They used to support the youth movement and it thrived. $$$ You can see the change in target marketing if you look at adds from 12+ years ago and compare them to now. entry boards $3...

Re: Impending trade war: Tariffs affecting the kite industry?

The kite industry can only profit from fair trade deals... These are small companies, not global concerns & Trump’s plan is to empower smaller companies like kite companies that are run more like a family business than big draconian global corporations.

It’s GOOD NEWS! Not war news 🙄

Re: Scoring of tricks in GKA air games?

I never compare myself to others & keep winning prizes for some reason... those who compete with me don’t get it, but that’s why they can’t reach my level... maybe I’m too arrogant to compete in what I know I’m good at How are you winning prizes if you're not competing? Do random strangers just wal...
