The fact that u are a very frequent poster makes me think u spend more time being a whining little bitch than actually kiting. Do your self a favour and get out more.

your idea was big mistake and that make me to be ROFL !
i already kiting for over 50 times this yrs so new record almost 54 days windy at squamish also other locals at greater vancouver
then u get lost and go to your dungeon home :rollgrin:



If anyone has the same issue. Check out resin8 boards, u can surf them and they take a beating whilst kiting, doing airs and survive riding gnarly shore dumps the fins will break long before the fin box.

I notice now Ben Wilson is also moving to resin8. Probably for a good reason.

Thanks for the posts Ben, very nice of you. How do you deal with light wind wave riding? Because sometimes the waves are too good not to go, but the experience is a little underwhelming.

What is the lightest wind you ride waves in, what would be your optimal board/kite combo for light wind, what wind direction makes it better? Do you take fins off the board? What is the biggest you would go board wise? Also, any tips for the times that we're out trying but a) not accessing the face with enough speed to stay in b) losing kite control as the wavespeed exceeds tow speed.

thanks again
