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: Kiting specific Snowboard design and size thoughts?

Sounds like you need width more than length, consider the Jones Solution 169W splitboard:

If you want more racey kite and something to boost on TT in bigger winds get a Soul if you can afford it.

Re: Lake Choko at La Ventana

Do you know if this video was filmed there?



It looks like it's filmed in a river, but maybe that's just the camera man holding the camera tilted coupled with the wind waves.

Re: starting on duck tack to toeside

Learning to duck tack is actually quite challenging and if you can't nail it on a SB you're probably better off learning it there first. That being said, there are some people that only ride HF these days and if you are one of them by all means work on your duck tacks. The above video is misleading ...
