Re: Kitesurf holiday with kids club/ childcare?

Boavista, Hotel Riu

We used to go there when our daughter was younger. Had a very nice kid's program, and really nice kite conditions during the winter (especially if you are into waves).

Re: Is strapless overrated?

tomo style boards are so terrible for kiting unless u go super small, even then the wide tail gets easily out of control and front end in the way of turns. I can explain this statement only if you either did never ride a Tomo shape (like a Vader or Vanguard), or you did try one that was sized for p...

Re: Ozone Catalyst V1 vs Blade Trigger

Trigger is a much better kite, in 9m one of my all time favorites.
Just please make sure to check the valves, they tend to come unglued (which you can repair, but it sucks anyway)

Re: Kalpitiya / Sri Lanka report 2012

Hey Leo,
I know the Kalpitiya lagoon and Kapalady lagoon of course...
Actualy, you and I were throwing Kiteloops together on Kalpitiya lagoon back in 2012 ;)

But I thought there might be a place on Puttalam Lagoon suitable for kitesurfing as well, that's why I was asking.

Re: Kalpitiya / Sri Lanka report 2012

@ Ruuk : Amazing news :) Looking forward to some fellow kiters on our beach! Btw, I'm in Kandathoduwa at the moment. Last week, we had some quite epic surf conditions with nice, strong wind :D @ Ruuk : in a week, a friend of mine will join us. He's an intermediate, so I want to take him to a lagoon....

Re: Fire Wire vanguard, Vader adding foil?

Personally, I would do the conversion only if you want to "recycle" the Vader, and you don't want to use it either with or without foil.
Otherwise you end up with a bad compromise for both.

Re: Where is good spot to learn wave kitesurfing?

Boavista during Swell time (winter months).
Check out the RIU - in front, there is a long, nice beach break, and the station is good (incl. rescue)
Super easy conditions - side off wind, clean waves in sets.

Re: true advice on Sri Lanka, a new Brazil?

Hey Ruuk, Can you point out where the best places on Puttalam lagoon are in summer time? Is there any decent place to launch on Puttalam or Palavi side? I'm asking because a friend joins us this summer (intermediate kitesurfer) , and I'm not sure he can handle the waves in front of our house. So I w...
