Re: Wave kite dilemma

I'm your weight plus or minus a beer or two. Agree with cab driver that Cabrinha bar is great - I never tried an old one but the new ones are as good or better than other brands. I ride a 9 drifter as my go to kite. It does not lack in low end. if I get under powered, I switch to the 12 as will ever...

Re: Is strapless overrated?

his summary is right on: Riding strapless has a really nice feeling to it but it will not make you look cooler : riding well does. And riding well means being confortable with the conditions and your equipment. Although the “Strapless” word broadcasts a higher sense of freedom, it will actually not ...

Cape Town is in my travel list as a goofy wave rider. How bad are the queues? Are there not other breaks without crowds if you ride or drive a bit?

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

this is like walking into a church and asking if you should get baptized! of course! When you are very time constricted, such as you can only kite weekends and live in a not super reliable place, it is awesome to have a new option for 5-15 knots. Also, learning is not frustrating. Sure it's humbling...

Re: Kitesurfing & Family - the best spot?

I agree about Rhodes and Tenerife. For Rhodes, this shop is where the hotel beach-front kiting is http://www.kiteprocenter.gr/ (no affiliation). In Tenerife, you want El Medano. In both places, you can find hotel pools for kids and other activities to keep everyone happy, plus wind (almost) every da...

Re: How to self launch a kite

As a traveler for wind/waves, a key missing point is that the best technique is site specific. While top spots usually have someone to help, there's no guarantee, especially late or early in the day. Many great spots have a huge wind shadow at the beach so 'light wind' techniques can work. For trave...
