Re: Who was this crazy guy who kited hurricane Irma in Miami Beach?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmh-6YrI7W4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmh-6YrI7W4 This is a clip of Hurricane Irma as the eyewall passed close to Marco Island, FL. What hero's in the audience are up for kiting in this, with anything? A hurricane can be many hundreds of miles across influencing...

Re: 29 yo woman dies in Aytré / France (near La Rochelle)

RIP and strength to the woman's family and friends. It seems conditions were light, does anyone know what the gust range and relative direct of the wind? Also, was the tide high compelling her to launch close to the rocks? My translations aren't too good this time. The first kitesurfing fatality I h...

Re: Search underway for missing kite-surfer off Sandy Hook NJ

RIP, sounds like a great guy. I hope some insights come out as to what led to his accident for us to learn from to try to avoid repetition. If a drunk girl can walk up to a kiter on the beach and yank on his bar, a drunk boater can certainly misjudge an attempt to spray the kiter with water and hit ...

Re: Kite shops in Miami

I would be sure to visit Adventure Sports Miami, they have a great selection of gear at two Miami locations plus a third demo area at Matheson Hammock. They have another great store in Ft. Lauderdale, all well staffed with knowledgeable water people. The Coconut Grove location is the closest to Miam...

Re: Fatality in NE Brazil

I wish the young family strength through the aftermath of this terrible accident. Overpowered being pulled off in high wind and unable to drag back upwind to recover his 8 year old son who may not have had any flotation was a waking nightmare. The NP HIGH HOOK harness is compatible with waist harnes...

The water needs to flow back out to sea which it does through channels cut at intervals through the sand bar. The water can flow with power at high speed and extend offshore for 300 m at...
