Re: "Golf Bag" Needed

I bought a whole bunch of these bags on closeout and they are super nice bags and worth every penny at retail. Some bags are just the outer fabric with no padding. This bag is well padded and less than any other bag. It's also 165cm long so it will actually fit most all twin tips and even surf board...

Re: All 2017 Cabrinha kites now at 25% off----wait, 30% off

We just got a notice from Cabrinha that they will allow is to sell 2017 kites at 30% off starting November 1st.

So being the honest guy I am, you might want to wait until Nov 1st and get even better deals.

SB's will still be at 25% off.

Thanks and good winds.

Re: What should I know after first 8 hours of training

How old are you, how athletic are you and do you catch on to sports quickly? What other sports do you do for crossover learning. Meaning, do you bring other things to the table that will make it easier for learning. Do you understand all about the wind? 8 hours is a lot of hours for training unless ...

Re: Advice for buying 1st Foil Kite

Hi Edger, I used to encourage riders to NOT buy foils at all due to experience with older Flysurfer Speed 2's, etc. However, the newer "race" kites by Flysurfer, Ozone and others are really good foil kites. They have inherent disadvantages, but in the right conditions, they are pretty cool kites. I ...
