It correlates to the warmth of the water and the season, all are near record conditions. There are always quite a number of those that go under the water, just like snowmobiles into trees and open water, and cars doing what they do. Mankind has difficulty breathing at times.

Kite Reel & Board Attachment $35

Reel in excellent condition, used it starting out to minimize the chase. Found it in a box, so thought somebody might get use out of it. Used about 2 seasons, retracts well and minimizes snap back from falls.

You would have to spend a thousand bucks to make that thing work for more than 5 days in the realm of sand and surf. I guess your feet have to remain cast in concrete for fear of the dreaded premature release.

There is nowhere to ride in that neck of the woods unless you travel signifcant distances. Lakes are too small to take advantage unless wind speeds are 20+ and then its sketchy with wind shadows and dirty air.

This device is pure marketing shlock, if I were to ever see it for real on someones board, I would immediately try to interest the person in some very cheap beach front property.

Having a kite lift you out of the water is infinitely easier than balancing the rigging of an 8m sail in 15mph winds.

These dilemmas are rather streaky, when summer is at its peak so are the morons that would dream to fly. Kiting has a way of weeding out the posers, the wind and the water drowns those that are there for a momentary thrill. Reality strikes hard on those that are more suitable for a blanket and a bot...

A holiday weekend is no time to kite the inland lakes, go see your dentist for a painful procedure, it will be emminently more pleasurable than dealing with the morons and their toys.

Take the farmer john back asap, that is not going to help anything. I did not even know they still made that style. Even with a top its a worthless setup. And its less than worthless going out in just the john, man, you could have bought a speedo and had the same protection.

I think we need to cut dewsey some slack here, there are certain faculties at work in his comments. He is still very new to the sport and there is a surreal quality about kitemares when you really have not been around the block. I recall in the early days hearing about tragedies and having a hard ti...
