Re: Trip entire coast of Portugal

as said you´re coming a bit too early, if you could postpone by ~1 month would be better in the south the biggest community are ridding in Faro and Alvor, not sure the exact spot locations as i´m from away.

Re: Blade kites/bar

i love the FatLady, like the Trigger, dislike the Prime

Re: Global winds...getting less?

interesting to see how the arguments, pro / againts, are coming almost from ´that´ side of the ocean

Re: What's the big deal about unhooking?

as lame as a hooked in tindy grab I love a hooked in tindy grab. First of all, it's obviously a finger in the eye to those who are holier than thou, and second I think it can actually look pretty good if you tweak it a little bit.
