Re: I Think We Have More Drift !

John, there is a guy in Cape Town called Alan that rides like that, always strapped on a small surfboard and with his favorite kite, an older Cabrinha Nomad 5.5m. He whips that kite back and forth, following it on the waves, and puts on a great show in waves that seldom allow more than two cycles of...

Re: Buying demo kites - bad idea?

I've bought almost entirely demo and used kites (25 altogether), mostly from REAL in Hatteras, never had a problem.

Re: OBX inaccessible

Road is now open from Rodanthe through Avon, and crews are working on the Oregon Inlet to Rodanthe, but I would not be confident they can get it open for long before the next high tide this evening. Thousands of people are supposed to leave the island today and thousands to arrive, this is making a ...

Re: OBX inaccessible
