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

It would be like buying a POS mountain bike at Walmart if you wanted to learn how to downhill mountain bike. :rollgrin:

Re: Biggest and Fastest Fleet in Years Set to Ignite Formula Kite Worlds

I wish it was freestyle. Yes, racing takes commitment, skill, and ambition. Too bad it is like watching paint dry.

I guess the upside is that we won’t see an insurgence of newbies sparked by Olympic glory to kite. 😜

Re: New to this, is it realistic to teach myself?

For any others new to the sport. Step 1 buy a trainer kite and fly it until you are extremely proficient. 2. Take a lesson. 3. talk to local kiters to find out what kite they use and why. Ask for suggestions. 4. Buy you first kite. It is tempting to just go out and buy the gear, but when you don’t u...

Re: statement from Lou

Back in 2001, Lou and most of the Maui crew said the same thing about 4-Line kites. They thought they were for noobs. The argument was that you should just edge the board.

Think of where kiteboarding would be today without 4-line kites? It would be a very niche sport. :bye:

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

One more comment: you have every right to call the wastewater treatment plant and ask to speak with a representative in person. I think you would be surprised to find out the information that they will share if you are polite and non-accusatory. You might find that they care about the quality of the...

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

Kitegirl, you are making a big assumption. You are assuming that because the wastewater treatment is old and nearby that it is the cause of the contaminated water. How can you be so sure? Unless, you test the water that is being released from the plant, you cannot be sure. I doubt it is the treatmen...

Re: flysurfer sonic3, any news?

I really like the Sonic 2. I don’t race, but I like the high performance for boosting and ripping up wind. However, the Sonic 2 just sucked in wind that was less than optimal. If the stability could be improved without sacrificing the performance, I would buy a couple. I still think I will keep my S...

Re: Speed 5 vs. Soul

I replaced my quiver of Speed 5 and Sonic 2’s with Soul.
In addition to better relaunch and turning, the Soul is more stable than the Speed. Perhaps, not a big deal for smooth ocean wind, but snowkiting or on inland lakes, it is a world of difference.

Re: Vacation warriors - a new breed emerges and it scares the crap outta me

What no comments on how funny Exal’s video is on page 2?

Here is my 2 cents on this topic. I can’t believe we are criticizing people that spend their money on lessons. Shouldn’t we be more upset with the idiots that buy a 15 year old kite for $100 and refuse to take a lesson???
