Re: SW Florida November until January

On a day to day basis we don't really get rideable winds, it's usually when a cold front comes in and then it can be windy for days. So depending on if a front is passing through you can definitely kite in the morning as well. In the summer we get more of those thermal winds in the afternoon but not...

Re: SW Florida November until January

I'm not aware of any beaches in that area that it's banned. If you're still relatively new I would stick with going out where other kiters are anyway but if theres rideable wind you'll see people at those spots. I'm not familiar with kiting at Venice Beach FYI.

Re: SW Florida November until January

That's a great time to go..Will have fun wind, cold fronts bring 15-25 mph, occasionally higher but not as common, waters not too cold (I usually kite in a 3/2 but some days deeper in winter wish I had a little thicker). North Lido Beach is a good spot (look on googlemaps and search 1-85 John Ringli...

Height or weight more important for board size

I am tall and thin (6'3 165 lbs) and looking at upgrading from my Naish Hero 140cm x 43cm to a more "high performance" board now that I'm riding more powered up, going for big airs and trying tricks. I like the North Atmos Hybrid but not sure if I should be basing the dimensions off my height (which...

Re: Sun protection for face

Use a zinc based mineral sunscreen SPF 50 (Neutrogena makes a great one. Your face will be white but it holds up in the ocean and since it's mineral based won't sting your eyes)

pre or post kiting routine to limit soreness

The following day after a session my whole body feels like I was hit by a dump truck.. Has anyone found a particular routine, whether thats stretching or something else, pre or post kiting that helps?

Re: Tips and Tricks to Repair Kites - add your experience!

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

I’m planning on a seat harness as was told that’s better to learn on than a waist harness. Haven’t decided on a board yet either. I weigh ~170 lbs

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

Thanks for all the advice! One of the main reasons I was leaning towards the XR5 vs Pivot was because where I live, a lot of the time the wind hovers around 15 mph and thought that the Xr5 15m LW would be ideal for those days and then the 12m for the good windy days..the downside with the Naish Pivo...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

Thanks for the feedback! I think I'm headed in the direction of jumps and small surf along with general cruising/free style. I've saved up for this so don't mind spending more if it means a better product/better fit for me.
