Re: Phone that will work IN salt water

spatty99 thanks for the update. this is hot off the press and specifically addresses the issue of water droplets / wet usage.

Re: Phone that will work IN salt water

Letsgoflyakite, You make an excellent point re dialing in the water. Spatty99 indicates that he takes pictures underwater which tends to suggest that it might dial. If Spatty99 would care to comment on the dialing attributes it would be appreciated. Although I don't intend to be run over by an SUV w...

Re: Phone that will work IN salt water

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I looked at the SPOT Gps and while it is a good idea the reviews imply that it doesn't quite live up to billings. It didn't handle the water on the back of a kayak, had spurious readings when placed on top of a backpack. The S5 samsung seems like it might be a good...

Phone that will work IN salt water

I know this is a topic that has been discussed before but cell phone offerings change by the day. Does anyone know of a cell phone that will work while you are sitting in the water after you have done something stupid or the god's have just decided to mess with you? I am not talking about updating m...

Re: Old versus new kites

Thanks everyone for your input, even dyylan.

The 10 and 12 are freakdog which I believe went belly up shortly after I got these. The 8 is a Nash. They are all bow kites.

Old versus new kites

Could someone please explain the major advances in kite technology over the last eight years that would justify the purchase of a new kite for a beginner. I have three kites 8, 10, 12 meter but all of them are about 8 years old. I have a background in aviation so feel free to discuss cord, leading e...

Re: old and flabby wants to finally learn to kite

Thanks everyone, The cable park is practically in my back yard. I can't believe I didn't know it was there. Would have gone today but they don't open until next week. Worse still a friend of mine knew all about it and didn't bother to tell me. I plan on drinking all his beer next chance I get. That'...

Re: old and flabby wants to finally learn to kite

It grieves me, but I expect my lack of commitment means that my picture will never grace the front pages of kiting magazines, nor will I be featured in best adds surrounded by bikini clad beauties. Hopefully I can glean the best of the suggestions contained herein and over the next couple years adva...

Re: old and flabby wants to finally learn to kite

Okinawa kiter, Thanks for taking the time to post all those excellent posts. Most appreciated. What is your feeling about trainer kite, either three or four line. I have a two line trainer which is fun to play with but doesn't seem to translate well to a bigger kite. Getting out three times a week i...
