Re: Trying to get into Kiteboarding is this a good deal?

It cross my mind that the OP was trolling us all but it was a new profile and thought that maybe some other newb would be reading this one day.

Re: Different Kite and Bar Brand

The only thing I'd like to add to this thread is regarding single front line safety vs 2 front line safety. As long as you bar it's a single front line safety system, then go ahead and use it across any kite. There are still 2 front line safety bars out there and if you have that system, well I'd su...

Re: Trying to get into Kiteboarding is this a good deal?

Dude, there's no situation where this is a good deal. Seriously, walk away.

Take lessons and buy used gear from the school you're learning with.

Good deals on quality new gear on a budget:

Re: Double Line Flagging Kite w/ Single Line Bar?

Someone correct me if I am wrong but I am 99% sure that any single front line flag out bar will safely eject a kite with a bridle that is designed to roll over when ejected on the front two lines.

Re: Very bad experience with Kiteschools so far (advice needed)

Welcome to this fun sport and community, sorry to hear that it's off to a rocky start. As others have said, two sides to every story but you seem pretty reasonable. You should be able to call your credit card company and start a chargeback saying that they have failed to deliver the promised service...

Re: Low Budet Freeide Kite

This is a good deal on a kite that handles gusts very well.

Re: Handicapped Kite Camps

Thanks for sharing Toby. I've donated to Wind Sports 4 Wounded Warriors in the US before. They teach and equip wounded vets to kite at retreats. www.ws4ww.org The last that I talked to them, they were looking for schools to set up chapters throughout the US. Didn't mean to hijack the thread, just tr...

Re: Another Possible Destination: Lake Nitinat

Nitinaht is a really special place. It's an hour off the paved road into a temperate rainforest. It's an hour from cell phone reception and everyone there is camping. A normal day will see 25 knots and no gusts. The past couple of weeks (and this year in general) have had unseasonal weather on Vanco...

Re: Travel Bag that will Accomodate 150 Mako

Best thing that I can suggest is call a store that sells a lot of Makos and a lot of travel bags. A few years ago I ordered a Dakine FX travel bag from Windance in Hood River for my 150. I don't think that bag is made any longer.

Ask the staff to put a 150 in the bag to verify.

Happy travels.
