Re: NE Brazil Advices

Just back from Rio..... To add to the advice pile....Americans must have a visa and need six weeks to get it and must pick it up in person at a consulate or hire an agent to get it for you. That time period will only get longer the closer we get to the 2016 games. Did you happen to see that kinetic...

Re: Death Looping Kites...how to stop them?

Ah, The thing that makes all the difference remains formost and finds that wagging finger, you know the one, that flags in the face when the stoke urges you to say, it's all good man I can teach you to be safe, and bla bla bla... That wagging finger, that fo maxim, the truth be known to younow.. YOU...

Re: Death Looping Kites...how to stop them?

The thing about death loops that make them a one trick pony is.. That after four loops there's enough friction in the twisted lines to render any steering effort mute. Punch out being the only solution. That's the thing about kitesurfing, it's all good right up to the point that it isn't. Ha, a spor...

Re: how much would you pay for a "good" kite knife?

Ahem,
It was true when I said it a decade ago, and it remains true...
A flint knife is the way to go for the sea...
Incredibly sharp, an atom or two in edge width...
Dose not rust, and stays sharp for a a millinium or two...
Issues sure, but why not address them...

Re: Global winds...getting less?

It's ok Bille, What do we see out there? The whole thing we have going here is hanging on a shoestring... That's just the way it is, I like looking at the limb of the planet, and seeing just that sliver of atmosphere... Whoa, to see just how thin that is....yikes, we be some tenuous mofos... I'm pro...

Re: Global winds...getting less?

You need to enjoy a paradox, the conflict of beliefs those of science, those of faith laid down well before the invention of the plow... Truth is we for the most part are pretty much helpless without the conveniences the technology has provided us with today.... It's the bushman of the Kalahari that...

Re: Global winds...getting less?

No worries, Weman in my peer group are pretty much just in it for grins and exercise.. On the pendantic thing, I've yet to see a 'learn to spell thing ' without its own errors... Loser is a prime word in this forum, and I'd like to see it used in non loser like fashion.. My spell check, says you've ...

Re: Global winds...getting less?

Being the natural science fan, I'm thinking a coronal mass ejection has the best chance of being first to change things in an instant and significant way... Bam, there goes the satellites, the power grid, and it's a brand new world... There are bigger things than us, we have a way of forgetting that...

Re: Global winds...getting less?

My views are my own, I'm a pragmatist first and last... It's been over since we as a spieces started. We consume, there's and end to that. Co2 is a rather narrow issue considering the entire scope of issues... This whole idea that somehow you make a difference is as far fetched as anyone thinking ju...
