Hi everyone, I would like to know if you could recommend any large and good kite forums apart from this one?

Kiteforum is the main forum these days, other than that its smaller but more local forums for specific areas. In a similar way, you'll find that Facebook groups are now pretty popular for specific locations, clubs or kite disciplines.

Where are you based?

Large forums are a thing of the past. Social media destroyed them. Rather than keep things in one place, people set up their own local forums causing fragmentation across the internet.

In my experience, Kiteforum seems to have the highest number of posts per day. I get my fix from visiting a few each day. Extreme kites ( mixed discipline forum from down under, slow moving but good people ) and powerkiteforum ( A U.S. based forum with international members, mostly buggy orientated with some kitesurfing, good crowd ). Kitecrowd in the UK ( used to be white hot and bitchy until facebook thinned it out) and racekites.com ( completely dead now but still up and running with good resource for buggy and landboard if you're new to the sport ). Kiteboarder.co.uk was also a popular kitesurfing forum, now very slow.
