Re: Fatality in Lanzarote, Spain

Regarding Famara. 2km+ beach. Kiters need to go WAY up north, were the beach ends and all the rocks start...can be VERY dangerous with big swell and high tide. that's more or less what I remember reading about that spot somewhere in the past. Will skip that place then, at least till they extend lau...

Re: Fatality in Lanzarote, Spain

is it dangerous there at Famara? I was reading good opinions about spot + I like Canary Islands so I was thinking about going there for kiting one day, would I'd skip it if dangerous (and yes, even if opinions were positive in general, I recall narrow launching area was mentioned as one of the main ...

Re: Reinforcement for booties sole

buy ones with thicker sole. Might be unpleasant (lack of 'feel' of the board when kiting) initially, but you will get used too. I had ones from O'Neill, lasted like 4 seasons + I played beach volley in them too, so I guess they will last loooong just for kiting. was exactly this model https://eu.one...

Re: Cumbuco, Brazil: Forecast vs Real Wind

No history..maybe windfinder kept the data? Don't know. AFAIK only windguru stations do , this is why I was asking if the one I shared before was accurate (but was told it's far from Cumbuco... which is actually indicated at windguru link :) ). + windguru keeps history of forecasts (GFS13 currently...

Re: Cumbuco, Brazil: Forecast vs Real Wind

or, other question:
which windguru station shows reliable results?
that one here: https://www.windguru.cz/station/2001 still seems to be couple knots below what your screen shows

Re: Cumbuco, Brazil: Forecast vs Real Wind

is it also the case in high kitesurfing season period? (when direction is more of E I believe?)
also, can you share direct link to this wind station from which you have a picture? or it's not online / cannot be shared?

thanks

Re: kites that fits other brands bar

check the chart here: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2399806&p=1017907 I'm sure I saw newer version of this, like 2017 or 18, but cannot find it now. Just google 'kite bars compatibility chart' and I bet you'll find it. Anyway, the compatibility of core bars doesn't look good on 2015 version,...

Re: wind statistics that account for thermal wind

But, after a while the problem for people going somewhere for a week or two is that, not knowing the thermic's trends and finding it hard to believe to locals - no surprise, especially the business owners always claim it's more windy than it actually is - you may just reject some locations coz you ...

Re: wind statistics that account for thermal wind

Every source of wind statistics I have been able to find gives average daily wind, which of course means that a spot where the thermals kick up every afternoon but the nights are relatively calm comes off looking dead. Does anyone have any suggestions where one can find data that takes this into ac...
