Re: Goodbye to the sport that I love

Sorry to hear that. Swimming, swimming, swimming has helped me beyond words. I had tendonitis & some other issue 50 year olds get from years of kiting. Lap swimming has allowed me to build all my strength back with low impact workouts. Hopefully it could help you.

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

Two principles of US law that you should consider: "Sovereign immunity" protects most federal, state and local governments from lawsuits for monetary damages. You would be more successful if there is a private entity defendant (e.g., private contractor operating the wastewater facility). "Assumptio...

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

I would go up to Old Man's & ask who knows Hawaiian Brian. I know Kevin Collins knows him & almost everyone knows Kevin so with a few conversations you should find him. He is an attorney that kites & lives on Maui, but, I believe he is a disability attorney. Nevertheless I kited with him several tim...

Re: Welcome To California - No Kitesurfing

Really, What was being debated wasn't the wellbeing of the birds ( neither group had any facts), but a conflict between two groups of people with different and conflicting interests. The bird watchers want to watch birds, without kites in their field of view ( pretending they are in 100% natural en...

Welcome To California - No Kitesurfing

Another one bites the dust. The fabulous folks at California State Parks have decided to expand their ban on kitesurfing by extending the "Snowy Plover" nesting area further north to Morro Bay. While a lot of people may say, "oh, it's just a little stretch of beach" the reality is it's death by 1000...

Re: Monday Madness: Ponta Preta fired for GKA Cabo Verde day one

Again Airton is way ahead of the pack. He pulls an aerial off the lip (which is the gold standard move in windsurfing contests AND the one move that kiters can't really do which windsurfers do). That's the future for waveriding and for some reason none, or not many of the top pros, are doing it?!?!?...

Re: Is strapless overrated?

Here's the thing for me. I am 50. I am in pretty good shape. I ride a few great, even world class, wave spots. I have ridden strapped since the beginning. I have ridden strapless as well. With straps I can: 1. jump 12 foot of whitewater easily 2. i can tack upwind through the inside, because I can j...

Re: Skin Self-Repair?

Thanks for the input. I tried the duct tape & band aid approach today. It worked well. I just made sure that the strip of tape, more than covered the band aid. The band aid also adequately covered my abrasion. Only thing was that when I pulled it off I had slight abrasion around the edges, probably ...
