Kite Show News

Postby Toby » Thu Mar 25, 2004 11:08 pm

We are getting ready for the Kite Show, which starts on Monday in Hurghada, Egypt.

Already many guys from many different countries arrive, much more to come these days.

Mark Shinn arrived today, Ingrid Koelblichler is already here since some days.

X-Shooter Toddo arrived today, tomorrow I will go out and test the new bar together with many other people. I will state their feedbacks one day.

On Wednesday and today we had nice wind.
I was flying 12 and 16 these days, with boosting high on the 12s.
I tested already X4 12 against my R4 12.

The forecasts are different, two should be considered but are not reliable.
Check weather info here:

(always good if North wind is forecasted. The thermic will hit and make it much stronger (e.g. today: 3-4 Bft forecast, we used 10-16 sqm kites!)

Windguru´s forecast looks excellent though:

It is getting warmer everyday.
Some guys just wear lycra and shorts, I ride with a shorty and it is excellent.

Check for webcam and pictures of the day:
