Re: Kai Lenny's $1,500 Kite Board vs Oracle Team USA $15mio

If we are actually serious about competing with $15 million dollar yachts, and freakish sailboats like sailrocket, we need to look at working on kites that are built just for speed. Currently we have kites with round leading edges, but it would seem possible to create an inflated leading edge that i...

Re: Looking for a new freeride board

Second that on Brokite. I have the 134 freeride and it's the best twin tip I have ever ridden and I've been to the SPI kiteroundup and tried many boards. They carve like no other board. You can go into a toeside carve at full speed and it will hold. I have not tried the other models, but I can tell ...

Re: Haven't been to Corpus in a while: Lola Closed?

You can ride there. Just have to buy a Brokite board first!! :D At the very least, see if you can demo one. You will love it and probably buy one anyway. Just be cool, don't launch or land by the house, don't ride by the islands where the birds do their thing and you will be fine.

Re: Amazing Feeling ..........

The first time you throw the kite back for a jump thinking you might go up around 10 feet and get hit by a gust sending you up 40 feet. Gotta love the express elevator rides.

Re: Kiting with Airchair

Interesting. Could see this developed into a way for people with paralysis of the legs to actually be able to kite. With some sort of emergency flotation device it could be possible.

Re: Kiters ranking among other beach users

We need to be flexible with the crowds. When the beach is not crowded we can pretty much go where we want and do what we want, but on the weekends, we set up way behind the rest of the beachgoers so that we don't interfere with them. We also need to do the same on the water. When it's not crowded, t...

Re: Kiteboarding Banned at Padre Island National Seashore

The windsurfers can keep it. On that side of the island the wind is super gusty compared to the other side of the laguna madre. We have some secret spots here that provide awesome slicks with pure glass even if the wind is nuking so there are much better spots around here for kiting.
