Re: So is the Second Hand / Resale Market THAT bad?

All 2014 (minus 1 kite) which is a 2013.

Some kite brands are more expensive (and better quality) than others so we need to compare Apples to Apples as well though. I guess Im just surprised.

Thanks for the feedback

So is the Second Hand / Resale Market that bad?

40 years old, been in dozens of hobbies throughout life. Never seen a second hand / resale market so bad. Bought a full quiver of Ozone (which I'm thinking of selling). Tried listing a 9m Catalyst for 40% off what it goes for new. Nothing....Kite saw Fresh Water 1 time. Brand spaking new. Checked eb...

I'd like to know this as well. I'm 215 and have the Zephyr. Curious how low I can go (with the same board).

Re: What sport did you do prior to kiting and what drew you

For me it was simple... I absolutely love water...first and foremost. I've also enjoyed boating and gliding over the surface feeling the wind in my face. I've also gotten to where I like sailing and while sailing is nice, its expensive and requires a boat and storage and all the $$ that go with it. ...

Re: European vs American kite culture

Some of these people hit the nail on the head. The issue is FAR wider than kite culture. It's culture in general. The difference in American culture is immesely different compared to most other advanced countries. CNN just had an article on this this past week (Really worth a look) http://cnnpressro...

Re: What to wear under a seat harness??

Triathlon Shorts - Basically biking shorts but usually shorter, sometimes thinner and little to no padding. Dries super quick. Works great.

SPI really all that better than Corpus/NPI?

So some friends and I went to Corpus this weekend to check it out. Nice kiting. Question though for the Padre Island vets out there. Is the drive to SPI really all that worth it compared to the Corpus/SPI area? For us it's another 2.5-3 hours (on top if the 6 to get down to Corpus). Wondering if it'...

Re: Another boat launch method

Really enjoyed the video. As someone who just bought a small boat to assist in kiting, this was nice to see. Thanks for sharing!
