Re: Damage Waivers for Assisting Kiters

So what happened to start this thread? Seems like a damaged kite is below court costs and below any insurance deductible.

it is messed up that in "the land of the free" you have to dedicate brain cells to thinking about that kind of thing
It is sad. But I don’t think we spend so much time worrying about it and the beach crowd is a pretty relaxed bunch.

Re: Rescue situations

I want to say something constructive about this. .... stay with them until they are on dry land. And if you are "with it" enough to know that you are not quite thinking straight, let those giving you assistance know that. They are at risk too, and you should make it a point to consider their safety...

Re: Rescue situations

There was this "rescue" recently: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2405052 I suspect it would have been easier to tell the jet skis to get lost. Or just ask them to hang out a bit to make sure all is well. Wind and wave would have brought the kiter to shore faster without their help. I'm no...

Re: Sad day South France

I want to say something constructive about this. .... stay with them until they are on dry land. Yes I agree. And maybe true for any hazardous environment and also fair to realize someone in distress may not realize they need help. I had the experience for my first time over 10000 feet and I had se...

Re: Duotone Introduces The Capa - Freeride Foil Kite

For the money and considering the brand name you should not be needing to "mod" anything. You may as well buy a Pansh. You can't "mod" a Pansh to a high level kite no matter what you do it, it is quite same as to try to convert Kia to Porsche. Adding spoilers and chip tune engine isn't quite enough...

Re: Video: Police guide distressed kiteboarder back to shore

Onshore wind that day and our breaks are sandbars near shore. It looks like a 5 minute drift to shore max. Also it looks like the kiter had the bar wrapped up so not to drag lines through beach goers. Slow news day if this is the most exciting thing to happen. I like how the news carefully framed th...

Re: Corpus Christi - popular and user friendly launch sites

Lots of good options for HF. Again WC is the most popular. North Beach, Oleander and TAMUCC all offer quick access to deep water depending on wind direction.

Re: Corpus Christi - popular and user friendly launch sites

You are most likely to find other riders on any given day at Wildcat or Grassy. The other option is to go to the beach and look for kites in the air. You should get good winds in March.
