Can you do the same type of site for women? I am asking for a friend...Actually when you get a chance to add kiteboards that will be great.

Lets not get sexist here, the site is complicated enough to use for men already, so it should be fine for all the women users out there.

Adding kiteboards would be pretty tough because I would have to rewrite a lot of the script which was designed to look for kites. Maybe after I add the easier upgrades.

Thanks for suggestions and feedback!

Really useful site but i'm not sure you're picking up the kites at www.foilzone.com . Almost all Flysurfers.

Essentially, it searches through the classifieds sections of major kite forums for kites and then lists them in an organized directory. I know that a lot of people constantly check kite forums for good used kite deals and this tool makes it easier.

There's some bugs and it only updates once a day, but otherwise it works pretty well. If anyone is interested check it out... [url]kitehound.com[/url] and dont worry its totally free and I plan on keeping it that way.

Thanks!


Hi mate,

I'm not sure when you updated your database last time (and I assume you have to do so?), but when I crunch into your "Search" box Epic and search for my ad http://www.kiteforum.com/second_hand.php?task=showAd&id=11569&Itemid= , it does not show up.
You might want to do an update?

Cheers

Hi mate,

Yup, selling my *epic* Epic kites (I don't like testing their kites, pay a lot of money for that and if things fail, I am financially on my own with fixing and replacing their design flaws). Read more here:

Im picking up the kites on foilzone but not many because most of them are international, eg. in euros. I just recently added UK sites and only just now made the site scan foilzone for kites that are in pounds.

Im working on it though!
