Anyone else using just one bar?

I had Core ESP bar that was adjustable and it worked really good for both my GT 15m and GT 9m. Only problem was that I would usually forget to switch the bar from the outside setting to the inside setting since 80% of my riding was on the 15m. The result? I had a blast on the longer bar setting with...

Re: Offshore winds in Aruba

Just my 2cents but I thought Aruba was the most overrated place ever and I would never go back. Been to Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Gorge, Hatteras, South Padre, and I live in Florida so I have been to a few places to compare. Wind shadows, gusts, boats, and out of control freestylers...

Distal bicep tear questions

I had a complete tear of my bicep tendon where it attaches near the elbow from a non-kiting accident. Doc says I can resume most normal activities 5 months after surgery. I tried to explain to him what kitesurfing was and how it uses the arm muscles but he clearly wasn't getting it. Anyone out there...

Aruba hotels?

Where is a reasonable (under $200usd) place to stay in Aruba that you can kite in front of? Heard the Huts area is very gusty and offshore so doesn't sound that good. Is it better to get a nicer hotel off beach and then drive to the spots? Where is best flatwater spot? Is Boca Grandi best wave spot?...

Core GT 15m

Anyone ride the GT 15m? I'm 88 kg and ride in Florida so I'm looking for a kite that works in light wind and still works if the wind picks up a bit. I've ridden the 13.5m and thought it was great but I just need a little more bottom end. I was thinking of 15/9 quiver for 10 knots to 30 knots. Thanks!

Cabarete kite demo/rental?

What brands of kites are available for demo/rent in Cabarete? I'm heading there next week and would like to try some different kites. Are all of the rental kites only in small sizes or are there some 13/14m available in case of light wind?

Thanks for your help!

Re: EH OV (Ovando) - Update

I've seen that it has already been asked but no one has answered how the 13m compares to the EZE. Is the EZE model being dropped?

Re: 2009 Underground Boards

I have the 2008 small straps and they actually work pretty well. I wear booties so the exposed metal attachment on the side doesn't bother me unlike all the posts I read about the 2008 pads sucking. I tried the 2009 straps at South Padre Kite Roundup and thought they were great b/c they really locke...

Re: Airlines now accepts kiteboarding gear....

[quote][/quote]Come on people, try to at least look first before posting The way the policy reads is Linear inches(length + width + height) - not just length. Ex. my regular luggage is 32 inches in length, 20 inches wide, and 10 inches high = 62 linear inches(157cm). I've had them pull out the measu...

Re: What did you think about the SPI Kite Roundup

So were you able to test most of the gear that you wanted or was the wait too long to try a bunch of stuff? We are going on the weekend and I'm just wondering how much we are actually going to get to try. What were some of the most difficult things to get a hold of? I wanted to check out some 14/15m...
