Re: Northern Carribean locations for kitesurfing

Kontech: Sorry, I haven't been on the forum for a while, I missed your Q. There is a wide range of accomodations on the Island, though most of them are on the Grace Bay side. There are a handful of kite specific villas on Longbay with compressors, kite storage etc, but pricey unless you are splittin...

Re: Nobile Zen Foil 'Unboxing'

Shawn - I've been riding Nobile twintips for like 10 years, since the 666 days, currently on an NHP from like 2013 (which I still love.) This package looks super well engineered and thoughtfully put together. I'm looking for a ride report for this thing both as a foil and as a wave surfboard. Looks ...

Re: Overpowered and DownWind riding

I can usually go about 45 degrees or more downwind without too much trouble, as Peter_Frank says it's all about keeping the kite very high, keeping it moving (high figure 8's), making sure you have just enough edge to maintain line tension so that you don't outrun the kite (which is easy to do). hon...

Re: Offshore winds

For all the reasons mentioned above, offshore is not a great idea, especially while learning, especially in marginal winds. I have self rescued (marginal winds dying) more time in the one year I've been foiling than in the 14 years I've been kiting. That being said, it can be manageable in certain s...

Re: Northern Carribean locations for kitesurfing

I also recommend Providenciales Turks & Caicos as a great spot. I have been there twice for 2 weeks each time and it is the only place I have ever been where I kited 14 out of 14 days both trips. Long Bay is a great setup, you can foil there as well, 100% sand bottom. If you start off just west ...

Re: Recent Condition Reports - Tahoe Area

Thanks @gwicke, I had the avalanche center but not the other too links. Hopefully the rain won't trash it too bad and sounds like plenty of fresh after that.

Recent Condition Reports - Tahoe Area

Heading out to Tahoe 1/13/17. Anyone have any semi-recent intel as to conditions at some of the main spots on North Side (Mount Rose Meadows) or South Side (Grass Lake / Hope Valley)? Sounds like they've gotten dumped and it's very severe avalanche risk, so I will be sticking to wide open spots, not...

Re: G'me a break!

I agree that straight on-shore through surf can be quite frustrating, been there, done that. I've basically developed the ability to water start in belly deep water, even though i have a full 42" mast. Sometimes it's required. I don't loop but basically just a straight 2 oclock to 10 oclock pow...

Re: Slingshot ghost whisperer/Adam withington big air video

I'm curious why multiple base mounting holes if they are selling with sliding track system?
