Re: 2015 Blade Fat Lady V3 17M - LIKE NEW $850

Points well taken...I have not bought a bigger kite in a while, and initially thought the price high for a used kite. After asking other kiters about the Fat Lady, I realize the holding value and the demand for that kite. I'll have to take one for a spin sometime, thanks for your reply.

Re: 2015 Blade Fat Lady V3 17M - LIKE NEW $850

I've heard those are nice kites....seems a bit much tho considering it's a 3 year old kite without bar and lines. Bob's got 2017 version for $899.

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

Hey buddy, Lessons are highly recommended, and it's great that you are going that route! Most instructors have the student's safety as the highest priority when teaching beginning kiters; kiting can be very dangerous. It is possible that you've learned far more than you realize; everyone progresses ...

If you need a ding repaired, or if you're interested in learning how to do your own surfboard repairs send me a pm, or email thru Brokite website.

Re: WTB - used CrazyFly Allround board

I've got several used boards and demos to use in Brokite shop in Palatine. Do some research on Brokite vs crazy fly....IMHO there is no comparison, of course I'm biased since I hand make the boards in Palatine, but apples are apples and oranges are oranges!

Re: Race The Lake Downwind Classic April 8th Porter Beach 8a

An outstanding event Tyler, thanks to all the sponsors. Everyone had a blast, and it was great to see so many kiters gathered together! I believe there were 28 kiters doing the downwinder from keegs to zion. Some probably for the first time. Like always, downwinders should be done in safe conditions...

Re: 5 stages of accepting the new website...

What happened to the Lake Michigan graphical link? I have found that to be an indespensible source for forcasting not only wind speeds and direction but sky cover, temperature, and wave heights at four hour intervals? Can I just not find it, or has it been omitted?

Re: Community Disappointment

Not saying that at all buddy. I was not there either. It's just imperative for kiters to police themselves, and it's up to local kiters to take care of their "spot": to kite safely, protect access, and educate others. I've been called out myself at times; the key is how we respond and work on becomi...
