Re: San Andres/Providencia or Cabo de la Vela

If you are looking for waves i wouldnt pick san andres. Great flat water though. Good wind usually in late june to end of july. Then december to march. The rest of the months would be very chancy. Pm me if you need more info. I dont have any first hand knowledge about cabo de vela.

Re: Is the rise of foiling affecting the sales of big light wind kites?

I have noticed that there is much less discussion now on the forum about which big kites are best for light wind kiting. Big kite discussion is now generally about bigger kites for airstyle. I always thought that you could get really good deals on bigger kites because they generally got little use. ...

Is the rise of foiling affecting the sales of big light wind kites?

Since foiling seems to use much smaller kites in light winds than twin tip riders has the big increase in the popularity of foiling affected the sales of big light wind kites? Is that market going away for the kite companies?

Re: Video Clips Toby Braeuer Airstyle

I once watched Toby kiting for about one and half hours in San Andres in somewhat lighter winds. He did crash many times working on tricks but what was interesting to me that his kite never hit the water when he crashed. Kite was always overhead. Comes I guess with great kite control
