Re: Which Pro rider giving biggest bang for buck??

I'd say Shawn Richman.

Re: Vancouver Islander out on the Canadian West Coast

We are still figuring out Renfrew. We got skunked yesterday. What I think will work there is the temp differential between Lake Cowichan and Renfrew. We thought it was going to be good yesterday but then some lousy weather rolled in. You should consider coming to Tall Tree Music Festival, June 24-25...

Re: Cost Breakdown of Kite Package - Online Only vs Shop

I am in Canada and we do not have a local shop in my area. I have often thought of opening one but then I think of how annoying I can be as a consumer and decide not to. A few of my friends have talked about it as well and usually my answer to them is that I, and others, would likely come to their s...

Re: Vancouver Islander out on the Canadian West Coast

Hey Ni, Where on the island are you? There's a few of us likely heading to Port Renfrew from Victoria tomorrow. Should be a decent mix of wind and waves. The wind is not as strong as Nitinaht but I would argue that it is even more beautiful. Nitinaht is a great place to learn in addition to the crew...

Re: the best beginner kite

And what do you all think of the Wainman? Wainmans are what I learned on. I have found them incredibly simple to use and tweak, well constructed, and the service from the company and dealers have been phenomenal. The kite's stability, relaunch, and wind range is what I would say I have benefited fr...

Re: Best Kitesurf Magazine?

Great topic. I have have had subscriptions to Kiteworld, Kiteboarding, SBC, and The Kiteboarder. After a year I have only renewed Kiteworld and The Kiteboader. I prefer the format of Kiteworld but fell like the content of The Kiteboarder is the best. I feel that The Kiteboarder provides the best rev...

Re: Some thoughts after 2nd lesson

Welcome to the sport dyyylan. One thing that I have found really helped me when body dragging is crossing your legs at the ankles. Doing so will make it easier to keep your legs stretched out and help stop them from folding back. It does make a bit of a difference if you cross right over left or lef...

Re: Whats Best Golf Bag (Kite bag really!)

Hi Chilllbay, I'm sure no matter what people write back with you will get others saying the complete opposite. Personally I have both the Dakine Club Wagon and the Dakine SX bag. I have travelled with multiple airlines and have never had to pay for oversized luggage. The same goes for my two friends...

Re: Best and worst kite graphics

i never understood the rabbit thing... Anyone know the story of where the idea of a rabbit came up? They got big ears and fuzzy tails? They wiggle their noses? They're quiet? Got me.... no idea. I mean, grasshoppers can jump, too, y'know. I believe that it was Kiteworld Magazine that had asked Lou ...

Re: Kiting in the US, from June to August

I'd say Hood River is a must. I hear that Sherman Island near San Francisco is good. If you are into camping, you may wish to also consider coming up to Nitinaht Lake in BC. Squamish is also good just north of Vancouver, BC. Most of the key places for wind will have some sort of "wind fest" over the...
