Re: 2004 Cabrinha Access,bar,pump,only 400$

This thread started out as a deliberate negative public attack on young kiter who has been part of the kiting community for a very long time but it was beginning to turn into a terrific ethics discussion about proper disclosure on the sale of old kites. In thinking back, I’m reminded of how Henry fi...

Re: 2004 Cabrinha Access,bar,pump,only 400$

I still own 5 Recon kites. They are easier to relaunch than some of the earlier bow kites. I never learned to relaunch a "true" 4 line kite. with 12 pictures - how do we know that the buyer wasn't an old school guy who likes the Recon system? No one can see into the mind of another, but a 8 year old...

Found - Board at Waukegan

Found a board on the south end of Waukegan. Smaller older model.

I was the last to leave that day - looks like someone forgot it and will realize this when it gets windy again.

Call me and identify and we'll work on getting it back to you.

Re: longboarding when there isn't good wind

V, I bought direct from Original, but I had to do a real sales job on them to process my order. They didn’t respond to emails or phone messages, so I called constantly one afternoon until I got someone. My knowledge is extremely limited as I am certainly a novice. I just decided to go with the large...

Re: Epic Infinity light wind kite proto at Sturgeon Stampede

Pic looks like no pulleys on this bridle. Is this correct?

Good to pay you back for saving my 10m back in the Spring, Dewsy.

If you are going to break your bar, do it with style: kite looping.

You paid it forward diving in to grab someone's downed kite an hour later before it got to the breakwall.

Great time today.

Bob – my 5 paid lessons from 3 different instructors in 2004 – 2006 in 3 different countries left my idea of safety rather broad. I always wear a leash now since 2007 and of course adhere to any and all rules on any beach, with the exception of some parking violations. Jens – I have zero probl...

Greg: Really? I'm the only guy that drives a Hummer, many people know this, so you must be talking about me. I'm shocked and disappointed.
