These two website can exchange valuable information. Therefore always make sure to add a beach ID via the ID selector, when you upload a video onto Kiteforum.TV. Then the video will be linked to the beach information on Kitebeaches.com, so everyone can see on KB, how the conditions are on that beach. On the other site, if you watch a video, and want more information from that beach, you will find a link below the player â€œClick here for Location Infoâ€, which links to the beach info on KB.
