Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

I wish we did like Sweden. Really ? You would be willing to sacrifice the lives of your vulnerable family members for the sake of losing a season's kiting ? seemingly most of health officials seem to agree that what Norway did was also over the top - and Norway never completely locked down). And th...

Re: Cabrinha bars

I have both the recoil (strap trim) and trimlite style bars. FWIW, I prefer the recoil for the following reasons: (1) Always ride hooked and blessed with relatively steady sea breezes. Therefore, I generally only need to use three basic trim settings: full in, medium, and full out and generally don'...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

Yes Sweden has done very well. I wonder if the 3,225 Swedes who have succumbed to Codid-19 to date would agree with that statement. Sweden has a death rate of 319 per million of population. Compare that with its immediate neighbors, Norway and Finland who are taking more restrictive approaches and ...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

so do you really think those same idiots are going to comply with anything written here, or common sense in general? i think you and Adventure Logs both agree that we all need to be smart about getting back out there. Yep, the goal is hopefully common. Get this nightmare behind us as quickly and sa...

Re: Covid-19 - Resuming Kiting, In Time

How bout you let everyone be big boys and girls and let them figure it out on their own?? The amount of “Nannying” is insane nowadays. Because it is not just an individual thing. Unfortunately, there are too many idiots out there who won't figure it out on their own. And, if one of those idiots get...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

That guns and freedom thing has worked out pretty well for us last time I checked... The 14,542 Americans who died from gun-related homicides in 2017 might beg to differ with you (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_violence_in_the_United_States). Well, actually, they they lost their freedom of speec...
