Re: What is airboarding?

^^ LOL That was my thought too. It's like tubing for grown ups. Hey, if it's fun, it's cool. Each to its own.

If I were in that beautiful snowy mountain, I guess I'd do something different. It looks cool though.

Re: Buying larger kite 15m vs 17m (Contra, Emotion, Juice etc.)

I wonder why in the twin tip video the motion stops right after almost every trick. Maybe the kite just fell and the filming crew had to go pick it up? LOL I don't believe that 10knots twin tip BS any more. Some years ago, Naish convince me that the 15m Naish Fly would allow you to do freestyle in 1...

Re: Lost me mojo

After a decade of kitesurfing and living next to one of arguably Australia's best kiting spots, something strange has happened over the last 6 months... I've lost me kite mojo. ... We had a kid ... You said it all. Nature is telling you to stop focusing on yourself and spend as much as possible wit...

Re: Stitches and hydrofoils

I can assure you these do work. Slide them under your wetsuit. Shin and/or forearm. As far as I can tell my reaction is to block with my shin and forearm when something comes at me. I protect my body and head by instinct. I admit I don’t wear them on my forearms anymore but I’d do go through a spel...

No it was long before the trouble in Huguenot and a bit further south. This was the first ban that I had heard about anyway in Florida.

Re: Miami / S Florida Current Situation

I'm at Fort Laud, never go to Miami. However, I rode at 75th st a couple of months ago and never asked me anything and the locals were surprisingly friendly.

In Fort Laud, you don't need a permit, but you have to ride at the beaches open to kiting.

Re: Miami / S Florida Current Situation

The closer to Miami, the harder the restrictions. Up in Delray or even West Palm you'll find better waves, especially with NE, but not flat water. Only 25 kites at the same time in Crandon!? wow! That's sounds like a really low number for such a nice place. I wonder how much are those 25 paying to k...

Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

...I don’t know why everyone has to shit on everyone who enjoys the wind and water differently from themselves. What does it bother you if someone uses a foil, or not, or a wing, or a sail, or a kite. Or if they wear shorts over their wetsuit, or whatever. How does this cause you a problem? ... Bec...
