Folks have been talking about being bored by recent threads on some of the lists. This post should either put you entirely to sleep or perk up some interest depending on personal tendency. Anyway, I put the following short exam together to help to evaluate potential, unknown competitors for the rece...

The following thread was recently started on iwindsurf.com. Certification may be more of an issue in the USA and some other countries where restrictions have been contemplated. Although, I know that restrictions have been put into effect in Cabarete, Aruba, England and other areas, so it may not be ...

Costa Rica is an interesting place with lots to do and see aside from kiteboarding. Lake Arenal has incredible winds much of the year. Probably too strong for your kite size as winds into 40 to 50 kts. and above aren't that rare. Even if you had a smaller kite, Iwould approach riding in Arenal with ...

The turnout has been good with both world champions and tons of other excellent riders. The wind has been marginal but it is stronger than I expected considering the recent conditions. The guys have been showing off in extended free style sessions. A bunch of photos appear at: http://photos.groups.y...

Just came from the event from signing everyone in and it looks like they should have winds sideshore in the mid teens (mph). I was sunny, the water blue and clear and the wind building from the NNE. Tons of beach goers all around the fenced staging compound. Most of the guys had checked in and it lo...

Islamorada was very good. We had nice wind in the low 20 mph gusting to the mid to high 20's on Saturday. It was a bit side offshore so it was also gusty. The conditions were calm and fast! The gusty quality impaired the style and trick ambitions of many riders as it often impaired landings. Julian,...

Hello Toby, As you were on top of the list I had wondered if you were still flying over. I am sorry that you won't be able to make it this time. I shot a ton on nice digital video at the Islamorada competition last weekend and some Ok digital stills. I hope to do more of the same this weekend in Mia...

Hello Toby,

Thanks, will do. I got chased out of the market by lousy investment advice (my own) and so don't get the WSJ these days. I hope out of all the riders out there someone lets us know if it is printed. Add to that the 4000 AKA members who may also be on the lookout.

Rick
