Re: Naples Florida access

Hi. I'm heading to Naples next week and plan on bringing kites and a foil. I want to respect the local rules, written and unwritten. I'm experienced and like to immediately get far away from shore (not a show off). What's the deal with access? Any help is appreciated. I will have several Flysurfer ...

Re: GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

I have been playing around with the GoPro MAX with some interesting results. Some photos from Saturday off Lighthouse Beach, South Eleuthera. https://scontent.fmia1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/82442781_10156744063388199_2587129179162017792_o.jpg?_nc_cat=103&_nc_ohc=BwqorzhkwFQAX9UihHO&_nc_ht=scontent.f...

Re: Kite Snorkeling - lets talk about it!

With my normal kiting rig out, getting to a measly 10 feet took a great deal of work. I have been looking for gear lost from the capsized dive boat when I saw a regulator on the bottom which I had to pick up to take back to the people. I’m used to dropping down free diving routinely to 70 to 110 fee...

Re: Kite Snorkeling - lets talk about it!

Just getting down to 10 ft. was a major pain in the butt. If you rigged for it, no flotation, sources of excess drag, used long lines, perhaps even used a hand plane to aid diving in adequate wind, it might work out. Trolling on the surface is easy, diving for depth harder to do. I have tried it a f...

Re: Kite Snorkeling - lets talk about it!

I have tried it a few times over the years. Impact vests don't help the process or even a floaty seat harness. It is interesting in concept, trickier in implementation.

Re: Missing kitesurfer found after spending night on marshland

It was good he was found. His story reminds me of a kiter off Nantucket in winter many years ago. Squalls "can be" strong enough to clean "anyone's clock" without exception. If you can always dial in manageable ones with God ahead of time, good on you. Otherwise, stay out of them speaking from looki...

Re: Yahoogroups kitesurf list and all the rest are to be deleted SOON!

I just looked at info direct from yahoo, it is interesting I can't find anything on their yahoogroups page? Anyway, they say aspects will remain while other content will be deleted as you said. I have wanted to backup the content for years just in case. It is supposed to be easily done by working th...

Re: Yahoogroups kitesurf list and all the rest are to be deleted SOON!

When in doubt, back it up. Downloading the content seems to be easily done at least but only for folks with access. There is a great deal of important history to our sport on kitesurf list. It would be a shame to lose it.
