Have to say tho the new '05 bag is shit ! Only one handle, no rucksack straps, just big enuff to get the kite in and the board holder is on the wrong side, you cant put the bar in the pocket but have to put the wet bar in with the kite.

Don't have a direct answer for you, but, once there find any kayak rental operations and ask where they recommend for public sound access. You'll probably find that the kiting is relatively unexplored that far north but if the wind is right don't let that keep you away. Post a trip report when you g...

What is up with the new bags? There was a whole debate in another post about the Diesel bags which some of us had seen but not explored. Can anyone give the rundown on these new Fuel bags? They seem nicer for travel (look more like a normal bag) but how are they functionally for beach use, day trips...

Byerly and "guest" - I was in the exact same position this Spring and I ended up at the same two kites to decide between. Bottom line, you can't lose either way. Multiple dealers and both Slingshot AND Cabrinha reps told me I'd be making a good choice with either kite. (I actually respected that the...

I have lenses as well and no problems at all. I use the Seaspecs.com How are these when you wreck and get water behind them? Just wondering if they fog up or will hold water droplets that affect vision much. They look like they'll do the trick, but I don't want another piece of gear to adjust with ...
