I don't know if the X2 and other high power kites should be sold on the net to everyone. My opinion is that those power kites should be sold on people2peiople deals to give advise and gidance to the right kite for the individual level.

What's your opinion on this?

do you think this is limited to power kites only? I don't think so, since if a gust hits you it doesn't matter if you have an Aero or X2.
You can't stop selling kites online, which is good so, because more people get the feeling of this great sport since it will be cheaper to by online.

More important is that people do courses and check the weather before going on the water.
Also to have respect for the power of the kite and the nature.

More comments?

Hi,
I think gear should be sold on the net. Or else, how can people who don't have local kiteshops buy their gear. There are only like 3 or 4 kiteshops in all of mexico, none in mexico city where I live. So that is the reason why I started selling gear. I believe that if you are going to sell something over then net, that at least you should talk to the person on the phone or through e-mails, and that you should sell them learning videos too.

Learning videos and courses should be the perfect combination.

You don't work for TKC do you? They seem to be under the same scheme not selling on the net. How do people get to buy there equipment?
