Travel insurance for US citizen

Can anyone recommend travel insurance that covers kitesurfing in Brazil. Mainly just looking for medical coverage not so worried about bags, trip delays etc

Would only be for a 12 day trip.

Thanks

Re: Wainmann Punch, Boss, and Big Mama: too close to be practical?

They are quite heavy kites. i'm about 180lb and have the 6.5, 7, 9, 10.5 & 12 i couldn't ever see a use for the 14, 12 is already quite slow and heavy, doesn't give much more than moving the 10.5 around. I do get a lot of use out of the 10...

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

"Video clip can not exceed 120 seconds (2’,00”). We are not looking for long video clips, we want a short edit packed with plenty of extreme action." his video clip is 165 seconds so i'd say that could be an issue? also agreed with the other comment about few landings filmed. Each filmed trick show...
