Re: US National Park Service seeking public comments on whether or not to allow kitesurfing

This is great news.

The more common result is that kiters do not band together and push back, or they pull together a weak response and are shoved to the side. Nice work. This is indeed a precedence that will help threatened access in other areas as well. :thumb:

Re: SS Rally vs. SS Turbine... (12M vs. 13M)

...Because my next kite down is a 9m Rally I'm still interested in the top ends of Rally 12m vs Turbine 13m, and of course I'm also still interested in comparing the low end of the Rally 12m vs Turbine 13m. And as said above, not from dealers/sponsored riders etc. please. I can't comment on the Tur...

Re: SS Rally vs. SS Turbine... (12M vs. 13M)

This thread has been quiet awhile...

Has anyone else flown the new Turbine who is not a dealer and can comment? Particularly the 13M. :naughty:
I'm curious how that flies in light air as I'd like to swap out my 12M Rally for that 13M if it's the right call.

Thanks! :thumb:

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Got out to Colorado last week for some boarding, and between a couple days at Telluride and a few days at Silverton, I had set some time aside to snowkite.

Re: Cuba for novices

I guess in this forum there must be many people who could give you better info than me, but since I've just coma back from a 8 days trip, I'll give you my 2 cents. Cuba is just fantastic, not only for kiting but for enjoying the whole experience. If you've never been in Cuba, I wouldn't go there in...

Re: Obama is now a kitesurfer and Richard Branson is foiling..

I got give Obama credit, he was up and riding. Lets not forget he is from Hawaii. Well it depends who you ask. Alex Jones says he's from Kenya. :lol: I think it's very cool that he's out there relaxing with Branson and he tried a new sport. I didn't see that Kerry's interest in the sport had any im...

Re: Anyone using a Hero5 on their Kite?

I received a response from GoPro which clears things up. skidee's noted this as well. But, for the formal answer... The Smart Remote is compatible with HERO5. It delivers full remote control of all camera functions, including shutter, on/off and settings. You can remotely control your HERO5 from dis...

Re: Rally 8 + 12 ok?

I...Either should match the lowend of your 13 Fuel... I don't understand why people keep saying this, a 10 or 11 of any kite is not going to have the same lowend as a 13m fuel. a 13m fuel has just as much low end as any other 13m kite. on topic: 12-8 is a big gap but you can make do with it. the 9 ...
