Hunting/fishing and farming are two different things. If you raise an animal for food you won't bring about its extinction. I don't think it's an east/west thing. Hunting an animal to the point of extinction seems short-sighted. What if you could sustainably hunt whales such that their population l...

I believe the whole thing is engulfed by the Laguna Atacosta NWR which in general is off limits. I have inquired about accessing the areas that are not part of the public part and have been denied by the rangers. There are several similar bodies of water which look awesome and then you have huge dry...

Alan you should check out the Clamcleat systems I'm using on my Flysurfers some time. I think you will find it is possible to get the full bar throw and also make it easy enough to adjust and actually have a much longer adjustment on the trimmer too. I have been spending a little time trying to figu...

There is no question that returning the kites would be the right thing to do. But I would consult a lawyer before proceeding and specifically before damaging somebodies good name on a public forum in case you are wrong. There is a right and a wrong way to handle this sort of thing and a well written...

A couple of thoughts from a foil flier: Bridle tangles are going to happen to everyone at some point if you have bridles so have a proper safety that will flag the kite. Be prepared to use it. You should be able to maintain stable flight without a looping kite by steering the kite. You may have to p...

http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/pub-res/TBI_in_US_04/CausesTBIUpdate.pdf It would appear sporting accidents count in the struck by/against category of this figure from the CDC however the head injuries in this class are much less likely to lead to hospitalization or death. There is no question that the ene...

would a foil stay on it's tip like a modern sle at the side of the window? or is it more reliable to drift launch it? No you need to actively fly it to get it to sit at the edge with a tip in the water. Left alone it will drift down wind into the powerzone and end up nose down or nose up in the wat...

Thanks for the thread Dolphin. This is an important topic that affects all of us. Most commercial main stream sun blocks contain chemicals known to cause cancer. This is particularly true in USA products. While the European union has passed laws requiring that thousands of chemicals used in cosmetic...

I wax my chickenloop line and pulley bridle lines and use sailkote in other wear areas.

WARNING: I found out the hard way that if you dip prestretched spectra in melted wax the lines shrink.
