Re: Why Peru is not a more popular kite destination?

20 degree water in Peru vs. 30 degree water in Brazil ... pretty easy choice.

Re: October wind and sun travel.

We found some listings to buy villas in Tenerife where we can lodge up to 2 coaches and 6 students without going over the 250K € mark but we are still looking for other options in Portugal. Do you think Tenerife's a good place for training and if it's worth that amount of money? Do you know any oth...

Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

I just recently upgraded to a setup that usually floats on it's side. I have only one session on it but even when it was floating on it's side it was still moving down-wave back towards me so I didn't have to body drag. Now I'm not sure if it's my 60 cm mast or what but my combo (NP Glide Surf L + D...

Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

Most of you will probably bash on this but I tried a few sliding setups and didn't like any of them enough to jump with so I gave Fireball a go and I think it's the best of both worlds and use it exclusively now (even though I don't fly Cab kites).

Re: Spanish Lessons/Kitesurfing

It's not quite Central America but I would have a look at Bucerías or La Cruz in Mexico for the combo of kite lessons and Spanish lessons that time of year.

Re: Weight of 17m LEI kites

I haven't got these weights, just curious as to why? Are you really light and have found most are too heavy on a twintip? For hydrofoil these sizes are too big and not sufficient depower anyways, unless you are a lot over average weight :-? I ride in the 6-8 knots range fairly often and I'm curious...

Re: Kitesurfing destination with non kiting partner/friends?

You should consider El Medano in Tenerife. Very good compromise between kiting and non-kiting.

The kiting isn't amazing and rather crowded but it'll be windy and your GF will be pretty happy.
