Stolen Kites - Help!

Postby Jordan Cabanas » Mon Jun 07, 2010 12:08 am

Today I was Kitesurfing in Alvor, Portugal (near Lagos) and my van was broken into by thieves - they took alot of things including cameras (cannon waterproof and GoPro HD) but most of all they stole 2 of my kites.
They are both Wainman Hawaii kites and one is the 7m (Gypsy) the other is a 12m (Boss) - both of them are black.
If everyone can keep a look out for these kites (if you get offered them and they seem too cheap!) I would be very grateful - please let me know if you have any clues... my Portuguese mobile phone was also stolen but you can call me on my other number 0031 646350082 or email

Hi Jordan
I am going to reply to this one because I have kited at Alvor and I will be kiting there again in July. I live in Denmark and there is a low chance that your kite will show up here (but I will keep my eyes open). I have never seen a Wainman kite in Denmark.

I want to know where you parked at Alvor? I normally park at the small Alvor fishing harbor. The fishermen that use this harbor are good people and, in fact, keep an eye on things. At any rate, I have never seen or observed problems when parking there. On the other hand, I take all of my gear with me so my car looks totally empty.

To me Alvor is a special place in my world of kitesurfing and I would be sad if it was a general trend that thieves descend on this area.

I hope you find your equipment. I too know how inconvenient, annoying and depressing it is to have personal sports equipment stolen from places presumed safe.

kind regards
