Re: December Kitesurfing

Thanks for the tips. I realized that the list I posted is only of the Caribbean. From what I've read their rainy season ends in Dec and strongest winds occur closer to April. I'm also looking at NW Brazil and Thailand, although Caribbean has a huge benefit of being closer and cheaper!

Cabrinha 2009 IDS bar help

Hi, I have a 2009 Cabrinha SwitchBlade, and the Centerline Adjustment Strap (CAS) slides freely, so I can't let go of my bar or it will slide all the way to the top. I'm trying to figure out what keeps the Override sleeve from sliding on the centerline and I can't figure it out. The 2008 and before ...

kite bag

I see you guys have been rocking the lake here and I'm tied at work like crazy. My only chance at scoring some wind is while I'm in Seattle next week for work -- I'm dragging my gear with me for a weekend at Hood River. My only problem: no airline safe 'golf bag' If anyone has a travel bag I could b...

Sat -- 5/1

I'm sure most of you are burned out from all the sessions you've had this week. As for me, I've been waiting for the weekend and watching the winds dissapear.

Do the pros predict any ridable weather? Sat early morning maybe? Fat chance?

Anxious to kite,

Hi, I got back from Hawaii last week and wanted to share some pictures with you guys. Winds were really awesome and I rode mostly on my 8. I see you guys already opened the season -- time to dig up my wetsuit. Thanks Adrien for letting me borrow your kite bag! Dawid Kailua Beach http://lh6.ggpht.com...

Hey guys, Does anyone in Chicago area have a board bag to sell (for 144cm board)? I'm going to Hawaii friday and my trustworthy dealer is all out. Alternatively, can someone rent me one? I'll compensate you with money or some Polish beer. And if anyone will be in Oahu March 5-15 let me know! Cheers,...

I saw a shop do some repairs on a leaking bladder... fill a spray bottle with a mix of water and some dish washing liquid, pump up your kite and spray the leading edge with the mixture. you will see bubbles forming in places that are leaking air.

Cheers,

Help noob with fall/spring kite

Can you guys chime in on the "2009 8M Cabrinha Switchblade IDS" in the Sale section? I'm in need of a kite for the fall/spring winds on the Big Lake. I have a 12 Omega, which covers 14-22mph and need something for stronger winds. 8M SB looks to fit this category. Can't really describe my riding styl...

Thanks guys for the info. My friend took lessons from Air Padre with TJ. I'm going tomorrow to get better at jumps. SPI definitely delivered, I've been ridding everyday in 20+ mph winds, much better than OBX in July last year.

South Padre Island week

Hi All,

I'm headed to South Padre Island for a week tomorrow with a friend who wants to take lessons. Can anyone recommend a good instructor? A kind of... Bob Cook of the South :) ?

Cheers,
