I was also thinking of a news forum.

But at the end I am sure the kitesurfing forum gets more attention.

Maybe reorganize the layout so that you can display the headlines of the latest 5 news on the forum overview. Then keep the news section for the sake of being organized.

Also, where did the wave kite section go? It seems to be empty at the moment.

Never read it either and I think the sort of news one might garner there is already old, bad or spun news, better to dwell in the forum columns there often lies more interesting stuff.

I am sorry, but the Wave forum is gone. Too little movement. You can post all in the main forum now :thumb:

Ok. Sad to see it go. :-(

Maybe you can add the option of tags or flairs to new posts? That would keep the chance to immediately know what the post is about and still reduce the need for separate forums.

Never paid any attention to it. I really only use the forum and the spots, very occasionally go to the sponsored riders section to find the latest on someone, but it's usually FaceBook, which I don't use.

Didn't even know it existed.I only look in the general forum and the foilboarding section. Just took a look , first thing I noticed was some ladies in bikini's ,I'll take a closer look when I get some free time.
