Re: kitesurfing

I've actually tried an Ozone bar on Evo kites. It flew OK but felt sluggish and had less power compared to the higher V North bar.

Re: Flite 14.5 or 17?

If this helps, for reference I weigh 83 kilos. My minimum riding a 5'4" tomo vanguard is 11 knots. At 11 knots I can cruise on a 14.5 flite, but not do to much else without loosing ground. For 10 knots I think maybe a 17 would be better.

Re: My new project : iGetwind.com

@Jwoo : i just tested on sierra with chrome, firefox and I could scroll GFS on https://igetwind.com I tested safari on an older mac os with success. Weird that it does not work for you!

Re: My new project : iGetwind.com

I'm using an Imac OS Sierra 10.12.1 and GFS won't scroll. We're too remote for phone service (land or cell) so no mobile device. Only satellite internet.

Re: My new project : iGetwind.com

I will try to see what I can do but already having 10 days of GFS ( wich 5 days are 24 hours/day) is already a LOT of data to get. I'm scared I would slow things down if I put more. By the way GFS goes up to 16 days but I wonder if it's reliable after 10 days ? But anyway thank you for your suggest...

Re: My new project : iGetwind.com

Been using it for a few days now. I like the format, especially having a quick reference to several locations. If you were to make any changes, it would be nice to have more days available for the long term GFS.
Great Site!

La Ventana/El Sargento

Although I live in Baja Sur, I've never kited La Ventana. Thinking about heading there for a couple days with a camper. I'm thinking about staying at El Sargento Trailer Park or Yoyo's. Any of you familiar with the area know which has a better beach for launch/land?

No, sorry. My friend with the kite left back to the states. Never got another chance to try it again.

Re: North Juice 2018 opinions wanted??

A friend had a new 17m Juice set up on the beach on a super light wind day. Probably 6-8 knots or so. I gave it a go on a 5'4" vanguard. I weigh 185 lbs. I don't have anything to compare it to, as I've never kited wind that light, or flown a kite that big. For me, at that wind speed, I had to kite d...
