Re: Hello. Slightly overwhelmed beginner heeding advice.

Hey Travis. I live in St. Pete and have been kiting for ten years (just got back from riding, actually). I have no affiliation with any shop and am not a pimp of any brand (yes, there are some on here). I would highly recommend buying used gear from a local to start. Plenty of us locals (including m...

Re: Reasons behind banning?

Why bans occur and how to prevent them is a complicated issue with complicated affecting factors. I only have my local experience and the stories of some throughout the state to come to a conclusion. However, my local experience (St. Pete Fl) is very detailed and moderately long (since 2001). I do b...

Re: What exactly is a professional kitesurfer?

That's an interesting question/point. I have seen several websites/tv shows where people claim to be professional kiteboarders. It almost becomes laughable at a certain point. I suppose by the strictest definition of the word, a professional kitesurfer is one who has received some compensation for k...

Get some reasonable used gear at a good price from a reliable source, such as a local rider.

Re: Dolphin encounter

That dolphin vid is pretty awesome. At first I thought it was the same pod that was following you the whole time and I thought that was incredible. As the video went on, it seems that there was a very large number of dolphins in that area. Do you think that you had different dolphins follow you on d...

Re: Nick Jacobsen Crane Jump- Cape Town

i don't think anybody is questioning his ability, will,or his lack of regard for his livelihood. look at the base of the crane and try to envision a way to get to the crane arm. not saying it didn't happen but from the shots we have to look at it sure seems a daunting task to say the least. crazy a...

Re: Studio Wakeboard or Kiteboard Photography from Fstoppers

Thanks for posting the article and the video. I think it is clear that many who view this will have the "purist" response of not really liking it because it is staged. That is very logical and it makes sense that these shots wouldn't be featured in a hard core mag dedicated to wake, most likely. But...

Re: Hand Signal Needed

2-Handed hand signals don't work so well when you are kiting...... :lol: That's what I was thinking. If there is a problem, such as an approaching storm, I usually just point at my eyes then the problem. I think most people can figure this one out - keep your eyes on the object pointed to. Not that...
