Re: Where Should I Move To Retire & Kite?

Mr. Doe: I'm in a not un-similar position. I think finding somewhere your wife will be happy over the long term is likely to be very challenging. Obviously, whatever you choose has to meet her needs, or it won't work out. I'm more inclined to think a better idea to have a place somewhere in the US ...

Any thought about getting a sailboat, go anywhere the wind takes you?
Sounds great but my gut feeling is it might cost too much and the wife wouldn't dig it. She needs a decent sized condo, apt. we're talking 1 bedroom 500-600 sq feet. She's not high maintenance at all but won't live on a boat.

Re: Where Should I Move To Retire & Kite?

I spend a bit of time in Indonesia (Mostly Bali), it is so cheap and has some great spots. Once you are out of visa - off to Vietnam. Then back to Indo then pop over to Perth.. Then off to Sri Lanka. It's a great way not to drain your life savings fast. I used to go to Maui a lot but you can can sp...

Re: Where Should I Move To Retire & Kite?

Maui is great but the cost of housing is very high. Most condos are over $500k and $500 a month maintenance fees. Agreed. I've spent over a year on Maui. Love it, absolutely love everything about it....but....for me to trade down (significantly lower my cost of living) Maui won't do. It's right in ...

Where Should I Move To Retire & Kite?

Thanks in advance for any advice. I know there have been a few posts like this before. But, I am wondering where in the world I should move to retire & kite???? A few parameters below: I am an American, U.S., so I guess this means I'm limited to 3 months in some countries? Even if I buy property? Id...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

So far it hasn't at all. I'm on a 2 month trip in Maui & it has been the windiest winter in memory. It does seem like there aren't as many tourists as usual (I spend every winter here), and not to be racist but there definitely seems to be a lack of Asian tourists - just saying not trying to offend....

Re: anybody down in La Ventana?

Looks great to me? What about tips on cost of living if you don't mind my asking? I've heard power bills are around $2-3 U.S.? Phone cards for the month are $20? Other utilities are one quarter of what they are in the states?

Would You Or Would You Not Wear Your Wifes Panties

So I am at a world class wave-kiting spot, with waves, warm water, tropical etc. etc. etc. Its basically going off. It's richter (meaning beyond epic, biblical, as good as it gets). I'm watching conditions from my van as I'm waiting for solid wind cuz I have been out for 4 days in a row & my body is...

Re: Naish's designer leaving after 15 years of success

This is a bummer for Naish. Aside from all his professional accolades, he was a nice, humble, helpful guy to me a few years back. I was on Maui 7-8 years ago at an out of the way beach with a very tricky launch, sketchy wind. Some of the locals weren't real helpful, no worries. Damien came over told...
