We might have to do that. I would hate to miss another Hatteras trip as I kinda feel like one of the "founding fathers" of that deal. I still want to get a bunch of my newbie friends together and do it like we did 2 years ago. That was a blast. I am headed to Hatteras again in May and am kind of loo...

South Padre in October

Anyone know if October a good month to head to Padre? I seem to find conflicting reports when I search the web for this info. Anyone here with some info? Seems like you guys usually have the low down.

If not Padre, anywhere else that would be good that time of year?

Thanks,
Bill

Dude,

that is good to hear that my experience was an anomaly. I was only there for 3 days (flew in thurs night and out sun night) so my kiting window was small. I appreciate the info. I think Hatteras it may be!

Hatteras sounds great. I was there once two years ago in oct. and got skunked. Is the wind usually good sept - oct?

Bob, Thanks for the suggestion. I have been intrigued by South Padre for a while now but when I looked at the wind history, sept. and oct. seemed to be the least windy months out of the entire year. That is part of the reason why I need to find a good, reliable wind history website to check into thi...

Anyone know a good place to go during that time? The only pre-requisite is that there h...

9m Omega

I am selling a red, 9m Omega. Purchased 4 months ago and used ONLY TWICE! Selling only because I prefer the Crossbow. Believe it or not, I like a little more bar pressure than the Omega offers. No rips/tears/repairs. I would like to sell before I leave for a trip on Sept. 25th. $750 complete. Contac...

That is the best reason I have heard thus far for the individual pump inflation! :lol:

When I read those threads on kiteforum it makes me laugh. I feel like the one-pump bashing is just a bunch of people looking for a reason to complain. If they are sooooo anal that they want 7psi in each outer strut, 6 psi in the inner struts and 6.5 psi in the leading edge than kiteboarding isn't fo...

I use a reel leash and always wear a helmet. The only time I find a leash helpful is in very light wind where I need the resistance of the board on my feet to help launch the kite if it falls. Basically, if I am kiting in this wind, there isn't enough wind to jump (at least not more than a foot or t...
