Re: Leaving San Blas for San Andres Colombia

Just an update...

We love it so much here and there, that we spent six months in in both places, 2016,17,18 and 19. The original post is still valid.
We would love to share with more senior kiters. Both locations are wonderful. San Andres has lots of accommodation options, San Blas, not so much.

If you every buy stuff on Amazon.com, then get them to buy you Amazon Gift Cards.

Re: Dont try new things at the end of a session

To answer questions. The broken rib/s are quite visible on the right hand side of the photo, my left, just next to my elbow. No impact vest. Kite was an Edge 9 The take away for me is. I must balance my good direction to bad, or forget about bad direction. When I know i'm getting sloppy, stop, go ho...

Dont try new things at the end of a session

P7280294.JPG Ok maybe I am just getting old, pushing 60 but. When you are tired at the end of a session don't try new tricks. I was working on a thing, I don't know what to call it, but it is a double back rotation jump transition with downloop. Going left I have landed some real nice ones, but tod...

Re: Drift launch - consistently get steering and front line tangled

Hi, I don't know if any of what I am going to say will help you, but maybe there will be something that does. I drift launch every session. The only problem I have had so far is the CL falling down on the harness hook and disconnecting itself by lying on and then bending the DD. I never launch on a ...

Re: old fart round the world tour

Can think of one place that meets all your criteria quite close by.

Re: WOO on Android problem, needs Google Account?

Thank you for the suggestions. I believe that no amount of data tracking is a good thing. In 2003 I wrote to the BBC about the future of mobiles, and predicted the smart phone, I saw where it was going. I also saw biometric linking to devices so that the authorities knew you were in x location, not ...

Re: WOO on Android problem, needs Google Account?

Umm thanks Dylan, but no. To me kiting is very personal, I don't want to show off, or compete, I just want to know my height, so I guess WOO should have put that in their terms and conditions. Funny that they just assume everyone has one. Anybody know of a non social sharing accelerometer based devi...
