Re: Wind conditions dictating board length?

I think most folks wont do the math and .the 7m is the smallest i have, and if i need something smaller i am sitting that session out.

Re: Why don't all kiters read Kiteforum?

I like this forum for generic worldwide information. I know it takes a lot of time to manage a forum like this. Kiteforum is a general forum. I thought it would be nice to have a section for local KBs like perhaps OBX, or DELMARVA. I dunno, There ae still a lot of folks on here!
