Bummer ... maybe a lesson learned is never to travel with untested gear.

On my vacation to Mexico last winter I saw no other kiters, and no kite shops anywhere. I became paranoid about losing or breaking anything ... even worried about my pump hose! Always be prepared.

I just returned from a trip to mexico ... a norte came through last week and I was kiting in Puerto Moleros ... was doing lots of 30 foot high jumps (I could see the top of the roof of the hotel).
