Re: Best gloves for kiting

Thx guys, some useful information. I think I'll look into getting my hands on these NPX mittens.

Still sceptical, though. I had some preformed claw mittens....last winter. Gave me cramps in half an hour.

Yep. It's your timing. It's different from bigger kites.
Less hangtime....also to be expected when using a smaller kite.

Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas

There's Takapuna, flat water, Point Chev, flat water, Shakespeare Bay, gorgeous area, flat water. Many more, and that's just ...
