Re: Barbados

how about these guys? http://www.kitekahunas.com/wave-kitesurfing-camp.html

or Cabarete? or start a new thread 'where is the best place to learn waves'?' you're looking for no shallow reefs and either rescue service or if it goes bad you safely wash up on shore.

Re: Naish pivot 2017 8 or 9 meter?

I've used multiple brands and pivots and don't find their sizing off in any way. this is not at all a grunty or oversized kite that makes you need smaller. and as the name implies, it pivot turns with almost no power, so it is not a kite you're likely to feel overwhelmed with in turns, jumping, loop...

teaching absolute newbie

Has anyone taught someone to hydrofoil that does not already know how to kitesurf?

When we learn hydrofoil we all say 'everything you used to know is wrong...' so maybe if someone learns this from the very beginning they can skip the usual TT learning phase. Anyone tried?

We can all agree that she is 100% gorgeous, but I think we need a 'no neoprene' rule on this thread!!

Re: Barbados

the downside of barbados for learning is that if you drop your kite (which you will when learning waves, even if you NEVER do it on your TT) and can't relaunch in time, there is no rescue and the swim is very long with the current and the waves being a ways off shore. I know people that have lost th...

Re: The Gran Caymans for the Holidays in December

they are right - if you don't want a car, this is the wrong island. but it is a small & chill island and car is not a big deal. you will be going slow and dodging the occasional chicken and driving on the left. There are plenty of Caribbean islands where you don't need a car, but this isn't one. but...

Re: rescure strapless board with TT

I agree with the idea to ride the strapless board in. But if that doesn't work, a lot of surf boards have a small attachment point for a leash. You could probably use your safety leash to hook into that.

Re: First fatal accident in our local beginner Bay Area beach

wow - I've been kiting 15 years all over the world and never once saw anyone do this unhooked launch idea. if any beginners are reading this, please don't follow this. your safest way is to tell the launcher 'I'm a beginner, can you help me double check everything.' when I get asked this, I bring ov...

Re: travel with surf board

Flyboy: the exact board is airush converse. (should have said 'directional kitesurf board...). planning to kitesurf in waves but not surf without kite. ciscokitesurfer: great about LAN - I have taken them before no problem inside Peru without problem but I am worried about the US part of the trip as...
