Mexican Riviera in April

I am going to be staying on the beach in Akumal during the first week of April with my family and friends. Is that typically still considered kiteboarding season down there or do the winds tend to be light during that time of the year? I've searched this site and other sites and I am getting conflic...

Re: Bar too far away

Thanks all for the replies. I probably should have done a bit more research and reading before posting as it seems that it is pretty easy to adjust throw - I have last years North bars. I'll work and that and see if it solves the problem. By looking at the pictures and video, it does seem that by mo...

Bar too far away

I am a relatively new kiteboarder and it often feels that my bar is too far away from me. It seems I have to either sheet in too much to keep my hands on the bar, or bend at the waist and reach for the bar to be able to keep my hands on it. This is more pronounced when I am overpowered of course sin...

Re: Windward Islands in June - What Kite Sizes?

Thanks for the reply SpunMonkey. I reached out to 40 Knots and Max got me squared away as far as sizes to bring. Looking forward to get some tropical kiting in.

Windward Islands in June - What Kite Sizes?

We are starting to get organized for a trip we are taking to Antigua and St. Martin this June. I asked a while ago here a bit about the trip, but I am still having difficulty deciding which size kites to pack. Part of the problem is that I need to pack gear for my son and myself. He is 125 lbs and I...

Re: Northwestern Caribbean (Antigua-St. Martin)

Thanks for the reply flyingfishza. Not a troll - just fairly new to kiting and never been to that area of the Caribbean. Also, it's not cheap or easy to bring kite gear on a plane and I wasn't sure if being on a boat would make the good kite locations less accessible. On a boat you generally want to...

Northwestern Caribbean (Antigua-St. Martin)

We are going to be chartering a boat next June for a couple weeks and sailing from Antigua to St. Martin. Trying to figure out if we should bother bringing our kite gear or not. The islands we plan to visit include Antigua/Barbuda, Nevis/St. Kitts, St. Barths and St. Martin. We will generally be anc...

Thanks for all of the replies. Looks like the trip is on for the end of February. If we don't have wind EVERY day it will be ok since we will have plenty of other distractions like diving or, worse case, spending the day at the Willie-T drinking Painkillers. In any case it should be fun. I am going ...

Kiting in the BVIs

I am planning a trip down to the British Virgin Islands with a friend or two of mine who kite. While down there I am also interested in getting into kiting more (I am a windurfer living in the Gorge and have taken an introductory kite lesson but never have the time at home to get out and try it). I ...
