The Litewave Carbon Wing Review 161

Ok first I would like to thank Dave for providing a demo of boards at our local riding spot in Minnesota. I have to say I wasn’t in the market for a light wind board as I had the Spleene Door 164 for light winds along with a Cabrinha Plasma wide 146x46 that I used instead of the Door when I wanted t...

Re: Straps close to tips on freestyle boards

I find the width of the stance depends on your style of riding and what your looking to accomplish. The same holds true in Snowboarding. Wide reserved for the tricks and landings as mentioned in other posts, the drawback is it limits the forward and aft movements your body can make on the board as i...

Re: Cabrinha Switchblades 2010 - 2013

I have been flying SB since 2007. My feelings are the SB's had been improving since the 2009 every year. I will agree that the 2012 SB was a great kite and it took me a few sessions to like the 2013. Once I realized it didnt fly out of the box on the middle knott and actually had to tune the kite to...

Re: St. Lucia honeymoon in December.

In regards to bringing gear, i always travel with mine and most people that I have met do. The great thing about St Lucia is the strong consistant winds. ALl you need is 2 kites and a board so very easy to travel with. Enjoy, looking to rebook St Lucia myself for the first part of Feb.

Re: St. Lucia honeymoon in December.

I have been to st Lucia twice in the last two years and highly recomend it for several reasons. The wind has always been good to us and you have 2 locations to kite on the south side of the island, a 3rd location on the North. So it really depends what you are looking for. Coconut bay is a decent al...

Re: Kitesurf destination in february for kiting

Allot of great choices for that time of year. Really depends what you are looking for in conditions and culture. St Lucia works well with 2 kite centers - 2 Elements and The Reef within walking distance and 10 minutes from the airport. You can choose lodging at all inclusive kid friendly coconut Bay...
