Re: Kiter killed by shark at Stuart Beach

A friend that grew up in that area told us that there are large schools of fish called Blue fish, which run 5-15 lbs, running in large schools along the beaches which the sharks feed on. They are a very strong tasting and bloody fish that put up a hell of a fight when caught but are not much for eat...

Re: 14 metre griffin or 14 metre thruster

Why did you switch? How do the two kites compare? I switch because I wanted a kite a little more stable and with more power, I found all those things on the Griffin, which I thought it lacked on the Thruster, and the price was right. I have found those same qualities in the Cabrinha but they are pr...

Re: 14 metre griffin or 14 metre thruster

I was out on Sunday on my 16M Griffin in San Diego and the wind range was from 12 mph to 16 with gust up to 18 and lulls in the 8 and I was totally powered up in the lulls and comfortable in the gust. I even took out my 128 Freak Dog board. I weight 180 lb (82 kg) and I was able to stay upwind when ...

Re: 2009 Griffin pics and review -Check it out!

I live in San Diego, weigh about 180 bl (80 kg) and I'm a intermediate. I bought the 16 for San Diego and the 12 and 9 meter Griffin for traveling. So far I manage to use the 16 three times, twice on surf and once on flat water. My initial reaction was that the 16 looked and felt big but once I got ...
