It was definitely a Core and 7m and I think it was an XR6.

Re: New Woo jump record: 33.9m

wow, impressive! anyone took pictures or video? Really hard to photograph on the beach today ... sand flying everywhere. When I got home I showered and I had sand stuck around the side of my eyeballs. I did get a screengrab from the Woo app and uploaded it to MS Drive. I added the link as a picture...

New Woo jump record: 33.9m

Congratulations to local rider Mike MacDonald who set a new Woo jump record -- 33.9m at kitebeach Cape Town today. woo.png I think* I launched his kite ... does that make me famous?

Re: Where to go for three weeks end of 2019 (Nov.-Dec.)?

Caribbean is better a bit later if you ask me - not that I have the full overview of all the Caribbean. Tanzania if that is Zanzibar is too early. Wind is better mid January. Personally I wouldn't even consider anything else than Brazil. Jericoacoara is just magical. Not sure when the season starts...

Karen Hou is a local kitesurfer and rocks the Woo leaderboard. She runs a B&B / kite lodge on Penghu called "Sunrise B&B" ... highly recommended.

Re: Oil catastrophe NE Brazil - pls report affected beaches

I saw a few small pieces on the sea side of the bar at Barra Nova when I was there 23 Sep - 1 October. They were really tiny bits and not many of them. Sadly there was tonnes of plastic everywhere :-(

Re: what Air lines to use ? USA- Cape Town in January

The "golf bag" is hit or miss with United. I've done it about 10 times and made it free 8 and the other 2 were $250 each way. Ouch! It seems its the mood of the gate agent. Lately I bring kites and rent a board unless it's a long stay and worth the risk. I might try this flight in January too. Usua...

Re: what Air lines to use ? USA- Cape Town in January

My understanding is that Lufthansa got quite expensive all of a sudden for kite gear. If you are coming to Cape Town and want to rent kitesurf gear, we intend to have the following to rent this year (all Duotone, our rental partner): Neos: 7, 8 & 9 (this year's - 2019/20) Evos 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10) (this...

Re: what Air lines to use ? USA- Cape Town in January

Re South African ... it is a loss-making airline that gets frequent bailouts from the SA government. If you fly them I would book with a credit card or some other way that gives you protection if they go bust. Also note that changing in Johannesburg can be a bit of a hassle -- if you miss the connec...
