Re: true advice on Sri Lanka, a new Brazil?

Anyone got any wind statistics for Mannar? I see it is supposedly good during summer, but how about winter?

Re: Boracay Cesspool closed

Can only hope this means they will permanently fix it. Would love to go back, but even in 2014 it was so dirty I would never even consider it.

Re: 2017 Airline Sports Baggage Fees & Rules

Emirates is 32kg (or 30kg depending on ticket). Can check in your kitebag as part of the normal luggage allowance. No issues. Only problem is if you need to bring more than 30/35kg (depending on ticket). Many destinations you can’t buy an extra bag - you got to pay per kg which is ridiculously expen...

Re: 12m or 14m Slingshot Rally for 200 lbs riders ??

I have always suggested a 17m as a first kite and plan just getting the feel for it on the marginal side of the wind range. My reason is simple, you are not efficient and you just simply need to be powered to progress faster. A large light wind board is a must if you opt for an 14m. As a heavier ri...

Re: Cabarete this season ?

Quite a few places that I´m guessing are renting out. An example:

That is probably one of the more expensive places.

On a 14 you should be fine on a regular big board (140x42 or slightly bigger - or at least I prefer slightly wider than 40). No need for a pure lightwind board in my opinion. As you mentioned something like a Misfit should do.

Re: Cabarete this season ?

Just got some pictures from Cabarete. Jesus. That is some bad weather.

Seems to be a bit of a hit and miss place these days unfortunately (at least during winter).

Re: Ethiopian Airlines fail

Thanks for sharing. Will think twice about flying Ethiopian (good alternative for me going to Zanzibar).

Also heard from others Madagascar can be complicated. I would love to go, but have been advised to rent equipment because of the hassle with flying both to and on the island.
