Re: Kite Suggestions using pre-existing control bars

I am wondering if I could get some advice as to how I might add a mid-size kite (12m) to my quiver. I am a relative beginner to the sport, so am looking for a bow- type kite. Something of the Cabrinha Switchblade type. ... Your Best Kahoona RP V5 bar will work with pretty much any kite made after 2...

Re: Kite Suggestions using pre-existing control bars

Although I have to credit foilholio with an outstanding idea (some big kite brand will patent it soon, and I hope he gets a royalty), he and the person that advised you not to mix bars and kites of different manufacturers are just jerking your chain.

Re: Hello-new member in Canada

Where in Canada are you? Lot's of kiters across the country and if you've got kitable water (or snow) there should be a kiting community to watch out for you as you advance. Also lots of warm water this summer! I'm in Winnipeg and slowly getting into the local groove. Time is my major constraint. W...

Hello-new member in Canada
