Re: Kite falling in lulls

Hello, another newbie question. I have recently started riding my new LFK P1 10m, and it starts falling super easily in even slight lulls. I notice how the kite starts dropping rapidly specially when there is a lull after a gust, if the lull is a little longer, I am unable to keep the kite in the a...

Re: Is it true no kiting on Playa Del Carmen beaches?

a few years ago I stayed at the iberostar grand paraiso (not playa, but close) and I could kite in front of the hotel.

I would stay away from busy areas, but our beach was not crowded.

Re: Kite for light wind - Recommendations

As kites get bigger they also get heavier, which can defeat their light wind capabilities. As others have said, big kites are sometimes for heavier riders in normal wind. I personally wont own an LEI above 12m because they are just too unwieldy. I encourage you to look at different boards instead. T...

Re: Where to Kite in cancun?

Just as an update since no one answered. Wind was side on from the south east. Waves were somewhat disorganized and around 3 meters but breaking close to shore. Lifeguard said that there is no problem to kite in front of the hotels in the hotel zone. (I am at the JW marriott). Right now we are getti...

Where to Kite in cancun?

It is weird, every single post or article focuses on isla blanca or the beach near the wet and wild. But no one addresses the obvious question Is kitesurfing (launching/landing) in the hotel zone, in front of the hotels, allowed? If it is allowed, are the conditions relatively safe? (plenty of room,...

Re: kiteboarding santa barbara

When I was there a few years ago (before the foil craze) 4 guys were out on 10m in super light wind, all on foils. I was amazed.. The wind is light and so you will want a foil.

Re: Best Way to Fly with Gear in 2017

I have flown quite a bit with my gear. I pack two kites, pump, bar harness, clothes into a check in rolling duffle bag. I take my 132x42board apart, take foot straps, fins, and handle off so it is totally flat. Then I wrap it in a cardboard box and get it as thin as possible. it is close to the allo...
