No it was long before the trouble in Huguenot and a bit further south. This was the first ban that I had heard about anyway in Florida.
So..., and the ban was in...???

Re: Miami / S Florida Current Situation

I'm at Fort Laud, never go to Miami. However, I rode at 75th st a couple of months ago and never asked me anything and the locals were surprisingly friendly.

In Fort Laud, you don't need a permit, but you have to ride at the beaches open to kiting.

Re: Miami / S Florida Current Situation

The closer to Miami, the harder the restrictions. Up in Delray or even West Palm you'll find better waves, especially with NE, but not flat water. Only 25 kites at the same time in Crandon!? wow! That's sounds like a really low number for such a nice place. I wonder how much are those 25 paying to k...

Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

...I don’t know why everyone has to shit on everyone who enjoys the wind and water differently from themselves. What does it bother you if someone uses a foil, or not, or a wing, or a sail, or a kite. Or if they wear shorts over their wetsuit, or whatever. How does this cause you a problem? ... Bec...

Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

Thinking that wing foiling will kill kite foiling or any other wind or surf sport is like thinking that windsurfing would have killed surfing, or kiteboarding would have killed windsurfing. The game opened up and it's a good thing, Each to his own. Maybe LWC has a reason to start such a discussion. ...

Don't trust a wind sport that need no harness
Noticed on new Dart wing promo videos you can see a loop and harness.
Yeah, the harness will show up eventually.

Re: How to repair Naish Octopus female part?

@Topaz, I understand now! I would have never thought of that. What kind of thin plastic would be appropriate? Credit card thickness? Should I try and fiddle it inside the hole so it's stuck on its own? I don't know. I guess the credit card could work fine. Someone here in the forum some years ago s...

Re: How to repair Naish Octopus female part?

@rickybobbyalex There is a hole between the LE 'sleeve' and the strut 'sleeve', the hole that the male valve goes through. That it is the hole you have to seal in a way hard enough to support the 6-7 psi that you will put on the main bladder. Otherwise, when you pump up the main bladder with no pres...

.... Or just call it a loss and get another kite with more reliable valves...
You nailed it! That's by far the best option.
