Re: Flat water family spot (Greece, Cyprus)

(preferably next to the spot). I think this is most important with little kids. Otherwise, when you drive, it can be tough to align schedules of naps, eating, ... with wind and having them happy at the beach as long as you want to stay. I suggest Kremasti, Rhodes. There are beach front hotels with ...

Re: Flat water family spot (Greece, Cyprus)

I went to Lefkada last year. Lots of lovely spots in the North. You can stay near one of the spots but you do get some waves there but regular wind in early August when we were there. Rode 9 and 14m in the afternoons. The other spots need a car but are spectacular. PM me if you want more details and...

Re: Exploding lines. Anyone had this happen? (picture in post)

Unfortunately, this is a common problem with ram air kites like Flysufer. Flysurfer has known about their EXPLODING KITES for almost 20 years, but has been unable to rectify the inherent flaws in ram air kites that lead to this happening. e.g. https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=4612 Please do yo...

Re: Dakine closes Hood river offices and lays off 39 people.

Sad news but it is unavoidable that sales will drop for all kite gear. Not only is kitesurfing limited at many places around the world also people buying gear might be in a financial trouble themselves because they lost their job. I am tempted to buy some gear but I am afraid most beaches will be c...

Re: Another Beginner Advise Needed

Just an update... Well in talks with Simon at Nomad about building a custom LW TT for Lightwind. Seems like a great board and the weight is awesome. Recommended size was 146/43 and only few weeks wait right now. Figured I’d learn on this for a bit than have him build another when wind picks up and ...

Re: Another Beginner Advise Needed

First I would like to say I will be taking lessons... Have your lessons before buying a board, you'll probably be able to try a few different ones. Only then decide which size you prefer. Yup. Totally agree. When you eventually buy, maybe worth looking at eBay rather than buying brand new. You migh...

Re: has anyone changed their neo to knots, not pullies

There is much better kites than Neos. Ok, in your opinion for allround wave riding, (onshore, sideshore side off, big, small etc) which models and which specific traits please? This is a bit off toppic but I am interested to know for future decisions on kites. High level would be enough if you do n...
