Re: Tarifa to Vladivostok

I think I just got an erection just scrolling through this post. As a father of two who has never done anything remotely like that and now is in his mid forties, I salute you!

Re: The proactive accident database has been updated. See here.

This is scary as shit. However a) - No one has any idea how many kiters are in the world, how many really have died and what is your personal statistical chance of dying and b) - after looking at that I am still looking at the wind forecast every hour :) I do think though it is a good thing to have ...

Re: Music when kiting - without headphones

Hm.... I guess then the best solution is to find a speaker with a built in memory. So far I was not able to find one IPX68 with the memory :(

Re: Music when kiting - without headphones

I usually kite in Nahant MA, on Dog Beach. It is never busy, we kite quite a distance from each other so my quiet music will bother nobody. Apple Watch 3 LTE has 16GB, this is more than enough for a good playlist. The issue is that Bluetooth doesn’t work under water. Obviously I am not going to dive...

Music when kiting - without headphones

Hello guys and girls, Anyone has experience with a waterproof ipx8 speaker when kiting? I would love to add music but I hate earphones or earbuds, and now in winter with a tight neoprene hood it is impossible. I am thinking of getting a waterproof speaker and streaming the music from my Apple watch....

Re: Lightwind strategy - advice needed

Awesome! I think I'll buy the board sometime in April, when it's not that cold anymore but still plenty of good wind so I can learn to foil powered up like you guys recommend.

Re: Lightwind strategy - advice needed

[/quote] The biggest impediment to learning to foil is if you still have a hard time flying the kite. If you can go out and have a session and feel comfortable never even looking at the kite because your muscle memory is dialed in, foiling will be much easier than if you still feel like you're fight...

Re: Lightwind strategy - advice needed

Hi guys, Thank you for the awesome insight! I think I am interested to go with the foil board and perhaps a foil kite. Follow-up question. How good of a kiter I need to be to start foiling? I am very comfortable going up wind and riding waves across and along the wave, but only starting now to learn...
