as most countries are doing the same.
Really? Which other country uses military and helicopters to arrest people for leisure activities in COVID-restricted areas?
Israel did the same thing a few months ago

Re: Wave Kiting Right of Ways - still confused

Good question. I have experienced similar confusing situations in Mauritius. Some people claim that because it's harder for windsurfers to catch a wave, they have the right to drop in even if a kiter is in a better position. However, when you then have 10 windsurfers all dropping into sets of 6 wave...

Re: 2018 Pivot bladder repair -- do I need teflon tape

I went through the exact same repair 2 weeks ago. After patching, just pump it up HARD in your living room and leave it overnight and see if it is still rock solid the next day. Mine wasn't so I took it back in the pool to see the bubbles - repair patch was fine but strut connections were losing air...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Thanks for the review Peter. So if I understand correctly, if you consider the 5m's sweet spot from 12-16 knots for your weight, the 6m would bring that down to 10-14 knots, and maybe even rideable on longer lines in the 8/9 knot range? True 10-14 knots instead of 12-16. Dont know about the 8-9 kno...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Would be interested to see a picture of the 4m on top of the 5m on top of the 6m to see how much bigger they are each. Also very interested to hear if the 6 and 4 follow up with a bit of overlap and can then be the perfect combo?

Re: Cape Town is open again

Toby, please stop advertising for a spot that´s already overcrowded. In the past years, it has reached a point where it even becomes dangerous. I am actually hoping that this season it won´t be that packed because a lot of countries have SA on their list of risk areas. Selfish much these days or is...

Re: Ecological disaster in kite paradise

I foiled that bay 3 years ago. Clearest water I've ever seen, beautiful coral just below the surface. So sad. Can't believe they didn't empty the ship while there was still time - they had more than 10 days before it started leaking. Incompetent governments just like the rest of the world. Also, how...

Re: Time to book flights?

Whatever you book I would definitely get cancellation options... Thats for sure. But by next year we should see many vaccinations worldwide, so risk will get limited. Be sure to see if your insurance will cover you if you get infected...that is currently a big problem of you travel to a risky regio...
