Re: Queen of the Air

Well, today would have worked after all if they do not have too many entrants. The SEaster filled in around 3PM and built till sunset. I was fully powered on a 7m Pivot by sunset. Kevin Langaree and Nick Jacobsen were out having fun, on 9m of course.

Re: New feature: Thanks for Posts

Thanks! Better than thumbs up and down, which can lead to losers trolling by repeatedly voting down another poster, like on Sailing Anarchy forums.

Re: How important are news for you?

Never paid any attention to it. I really only use the forum and the spots, very occasionally go to the sponsored riders section to find the latest on someone, but it's usually FaceBook, which I don't use.

Re: Shall we keep the Lost & Found Forum?

Agreed, Toby, I just post such messages in the main forum anyway, and they have resulted in return of two lost boards to their owners.

Re: New to kite, need to choose kite

I have heard that I should go for a twintip as a beginner. I like buying new stuff on sales, then I know everthing is ok but for a low price. Ill do as you suggest and ask the lokals.

We might get a little SEaster lat tomorrow afternoon, but I hope they hold off till Saturday when the forecast looks much better, albeit several days out so it could change.

Re: Accident at Kite Beach, Bloubergstrand, South Africa

Generally I agree, Toby. Several times I have refused to launch someone, indeed strongly suggested with a guy who was new to the beach that a 7m kite was not going to work as the wind was clearly dying back to the south, with three kiters stranded in the water outside the wave zone (I ended up walki...
