Re: Ride vs Pivot- Jump Height?

Been riding Naish Rides for years and Ive always been pleased with them. 2 struts roll up tight for travel, they sit obediently on self landers/ launchers, auto relaunch and take a lot of rocky beach abuse... However, I dont really crash kites too often, and Ive noticed from photos, my jumps just a...

Re: any one kited in Corpus Christie Texas

I agree with Joe. I don't live there but visited multiple times. It is a great spot for downwinders in small waves and a great place for beginner wave riders since you can't get into trouble. There is also flat water or bay chop at nearby sites & April-June is prime time. I'm hoping to go there or S...

to get a good answer, can you elaborate on why "besides hood river"?

Re: Aruba January

I agree with mkNY on all points. Forget the huts. Boca is the spot. Gets crowded quickly. Probably can support only 15 kiters. I only recommend Aruba to those who want as close to 100% wind guarantee as you can get in the Caribbean. Otherwise, there are islands with a better setup for flat water, ch...

Re: Barbados or Puerto Rico ?

I love Barbados for waves but agree that it is not a good spot to learn. There is shore break that beginners will find intimidating. If you can't stay up wind it can be really bad. I've been to Puerto Rico once but was skunked. I have read about a nice mix of flat water and waves. I'm not sure if yo...

Re: Ultimate Kiteboarding trip! USA to Argentina on a motorcycle.

If the trip was going to be easy, then everyone would do it. And part of the danger is what first attracted me to doing this. I do think you are over reacting a little bit though. The issue is Honduras and El Salvador. I have family there. There will be gangs aware of your trip. They may let you pa...

Re: Ultimate Kiteboarding trip! USA to Argentina on a motorcycle.

Crossing central america on motorcycle is extremely dangerous. You will be an easy target. Please re-consider unless you have a local guide and high security.

Re: Best cities to live for year round kiteboarding

All the good places have seasons - even close to the equator, north vs. south hemisphere makes for noticeable differences and wind seasons. Anyone who says otherwise likely owns a vacation rental that they are determined to rent out all year long! The question is merely how good is the main season a...

Re: Kite Paradise

FLandOBX, How do you evaluate clear water when you think of places to go? I just love clear water. Your question raises a good point. We all define "kite paradise" differently. I like clear water, too, but more importantly my "kite paradise" needs these characteristics: lots of days with kite-able ...
