Re: eFoil Regulations Florida

It is just another sore point in World Sailing Kite Kooks attempts to rewrite history for financial gain.

Is that a thing you have to worry about? dont let that crap put u off, it's epic... there is some localism but i...

Re: Trainer kite on a paddleboard

a sup is a giant drag machine


remember the f one sup kite - i reckon it sold like 1 worldwide - at 70% off. Worst idea ever. It does work though - you can even lie down and go to sleep during a sup kite session.

Re: Kite Accident Miami

jayzuz,that sounds suuuper harsh... hoping time will heal well, bones are magic at healing.

Get well soon.
