New Zealand

I will be renting a campervan and driving around New Zealand (South Island) from 11/10 - 11/21. and plan on bringing my gear. Can any locals suggest a few spots to check out as well as expected conditions for this time of year? Traveling solo so would love to meet up with others.

Re: When did you become interested in Kitesurfing?

2002 I was teaching windsurfing at a summer camp. One of my campers had just got back from Maui and said that he saw guys getting huge air on giant kites and wake boards. That winter I went to Puerto Rico to take lessons and have been hooked ever since.

Please recommend a snowkite school

Avid kiteboarder looking to get into snowkiting. Could someone please recommend a good kite school that is open in November / December? I am agnostic to location and if it could be combined with a trekking adventure all the better.

Re: Death Looping Kites...how to stop them?

It seems almost everyone who has kited for a period of time has experienced a death loop. Even as an experienced kiter I found myself panicked and fortunately was far enough away from shore to pull my safety in time. A couple of areas I would like to address. Two quick releases. On on the bar, one o...

Maui over the holidays

I will be in Maui over Christmas break and have been debating lugging my gear as I will be flying out on the tail end of a multi-city work trip. Can I get by with just my 12m or is it worthwhile to bring my 17 this time of year? I typically ride large (think Toby) at 220lbs. and just interested in c...

Re: The end to death spirals and drownings?

I think an additional safety mechanism like those discussed above is an idea worth pursuing.
