Re: Slingshot screamer or angry swallow

The name is perfect - I see a big resemblance between this very angry bird (a swallow) and a slashy surf board :D

Re: Directional boards for getting started

I also agree with Starsky. Pick up a nice floaty board so that you have more margin for error as your carves won't be perfect at first and you might come out of a turn less than full speed. Strapless will also help you learn to switch feet easier. Something like the larger Slingshot Angry Swallow in...

Re: Where to move in USA for great lifestyle/kiting?

The absolute best place in the Northern Hemisphere is being able to move around. Baja Mexico in the winter, up the Pacific coast thru the spring, Sherman Island & S.F. Bay in the Mid summer. Gorge late summer. It doesn't get any better than that.......... What about Kansas to split the difference &...

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...

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.
