See ya Chicago Kitesurfing!

After my trip to Colorado it became more clear that it is done with my kitesurfing. While descending from a hike to Mount Massive I found myself limping and missing motion in my left hip. After some stretch and pulls on my leg it made a popping noise while giving my range in motion back. Anyway, I w...

Dedicated vendor "for sale" area

Hey guys and girls. This is something I have seen on different message boards. Would it be possible / an idea to get the message board a separate vendor "for sale" area? It should be a small switch to be made towards the message board. Please let me know your thoughts.

Re: 2017 gear from Cabrinha and Slingshot

I think I will hit you up to give that system a try. Too many things going on Bob, hope to get to join you and the other to Hatteras soon again. Been working on my leg like crazy, strength is there but the muscle keeps getting tight. Plus I promised the wife, first finish my monster truck then get b...

Re: 2017 gear from Cabrinha and Slingshot

Bob, I've seen the ads about the new Cabrinha bar system. What I do wonder is how does the system respond when it gets unhooked by accident? I see there is little black cup that supposed to keep things in place by using a little elastic band. Sun, salt and rubber.... I guess this system is more focu...

Re: Montrose Streamers

I like the shark has a good feel to it. Same for the discovery kiter.
It would be interesting to get sort of input from the schools who teach there as well in the off season. Mike would you happen to have any input?

Montrose Streamers

Just a small thought. I remember when I was riding somewhere in Michigan and Mike (Skysurfer) was riding along to check if I could ride safe enough at Montrose. Anyhow, I got my streamer and we wrote a number on it (kinda like a serial number for riders). I have no idea how windward takes care of th...

Not to bash you but some additional information to anyone who might consider a Fuel. These are pulling, looping old school C style kites. Not considered a beginner kite.

Re: Safety and new kitesurfers

I am no where near the skill level of what West is. Don't get me wrong I could only dream about it, especially with my leg acting up on me. I have been thinking about this very well and I think a good no wind day would be the best. I spoke with Tyler the other day and we were thinking to do a sessio...

Safety and new kitesurfers

Chicago kitesurfing season is starting. Kiteschools will start getting their new students soon and people on the shores will see some wicket stuff again from new and more advanced riders. After I met West yesterday my mind started working. Even though I am not riding the latest and greatest gear any...

Re: Stampede this year?

I didnt do the drive this year. I will do next year with my crazy ice sailer. I needed an alternative to the snow kiting! Hope I will be zipping over the ice and possible land by summer
