Re: Another Possible Destination: Lake Nitinat

Nitinaht is a really special place. It's an hour off the paved road into a temperate rainforest. It's an hour from cell phone reception and everyone there is camping. A normal day will see 25 knots and no gusts. The past couple of weeks (and this year in general) have had unseasonal weather on Vanco...

Re: Travel Bag that will Accomodate 150 Mako

Best thing that I can suggest is call a store that sells a lot of Makos and a lot of travel bags. A few years ago I ordered a Dakine FX travel bag from Windance in Hood River for my 150. I don't think that bag is made any longer.

Ask the staff to put a 150 in the bag to verify.

Happy travels.

Re: 3 bars from 3 manufacturers ? Or not

However, if I follow you're suggesting we also provide front line pigtails to allow others to use this bar with pigtails on all 4 lines for their kite? If this is the case, I can certainly get you some spare pigtails! We struggle with the best option for the pigtails as by keeping all 4 lines the s...

Re: Kite reviews

There's been some good independent reviews done here in the past year.

Ian in NJ does some good ones.

The Germans have Gleiten TV which rarely is translated to English but they are rarely translatted to English.

Re: Kiting around Seattle in April

Lot's of potential in the area. For April weather and considering that you don't like cold water, you may be chilly in a 4:3 wetsuit. You may want to wear some merino under the suit or put on a cheap windbreaker on the outside to block some of the chill. You could see anything from 7m to 17m conditi...

Re: old kite (North Toro 2 14m2 2004) - help with it

Apologies if I have misunderstood your post. I took it that this is also your first kite and are looking to learn? For roughly the cost of buying a reliable bar for that kite, you can find a used 2010 kite and bar that you will enjoy a lot more and have a much faster time learning on than that kite ...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Go-Joe , or reel leash?

Learn to body drag better.
Failing that, get a GOJOE. I know some guys who use them only in sketchy conditions so that they can see their board better, not for the help getting it downwind to you.

Re: An expensive start to kiting, feeling discouraged

I usually suggest to never learn from your wife \ husband, it can easily lead to arguments and hurt feelings.

I sure hope that you stick with the sport, or at least get to experience it in a favorable light.
