Re: Beginner Advice

Not that much to add to OBX. I don't regret not doing it, but I probably would have saved some money even if I had bought a trainer kite before taking lessons. Rather pointless paying an instructor showing you how to fly one of those. Only thing I would add is that those kites are in my opinion very...

Re: Bandit 8m or 9m in combination with 11m?

I don't know the Bandit specifically, but 11-8 seems to be what many shops recommend for girls and fairly light weight riders looking for a 2 kite quiver. People are different. For me 11 - 8 makes more sense than 11-9 because of the overlap. But I don't mind trimming the kite while others prefer to ...

Re: Ilha Do Guajiru, Cumbuco and Jeri... kite size?

The atmosphere along the beach in Cumbuco is nice. In Jeri there is no place where you can relax with a beer watching other people kite (unless you go to Prea). You got some cool restaurants in the village, but it is nothing like Jeri. And even if I never felt unsafe in Cumbuco walking along some of...

Re: Surfr. New kitesurf jump app?

Woo doesn't work for me. Far too much randomness in the measurements. I have no idea if this will be better, but the current Woo leaderboard is more like a casino where you luck out with some reading than a proper leaderboard you can compete on. If you can make this better than I wouldn't worry abou...

Re: Surfr. New kitesurf jump app?

I can only agree with the last couple of points. Great that someone is doing this motivated by something else than pure profit, but I think the best thing would be to establish a monthly/yearly fee structure as early as possible. Getting something for free that you suddenly would have to pay never s...

Re: Disappointed with Ozone v4 and v5, again!

With the risk of it sounding like a defense speech for Ozone, but obviously Ozone got a better view than any individual customer as to how often their kites fail and what causes those failures. I have had that conversation with the distributor in Norway and they seem to be on the ball - as long as c...

Re: Where Should I Move To Retire & Kite?

I think you could apply all of that to Colombia/Cartagena as well. As in many things to do in the area. In terms of "big" cities and kiting Cartagena and Cape Town got to be on the list. If you are looking for a village then there is plenty in Brazil. As mentioned by others Cabarete is also nice. Ev...

Re: Where Should I Move To Retire & Kite?

Brazil is the nicest place I have ever been to, but I would recommend to try it out first. Have a walk around Cumbuco at night and see if you like it etc. A shame the season overlaps between Brazil and South-Africa. I would love to be in a position splitting my life 50/50 between those two countries...
