Re: Sunday 4-10-2011

it is shapping up nicely for Sunday (a bit on the light side though). Sheboygan might be money on Sunday afternoon. I might ride locally and spend time working on tricks I am still choked with.

Re: question about cape hatteras

I agree with Jens, NE is money in the ocean side, specially if the surf is up. Plenty of space and awesome downwinders. If you are lucky you can even see some pets in the water. However if you like the sound side go to frisco camp site. I kited there last year when the wind was NE. Usually this time...

Re: Cabrinha 2008 crossbow 3 12m and contra 3 15m for sale

with the 15m and with a big board you can ride upwind in 12kts ( I am 200lbs)

range is from 10kts to 20kts.

I am selling because I don't feel like riding light wind anymore.

Adrien, nice editing and sound track. I liked the wide angle aspect of the POV cam. Is it the GoPro?

You gotta come to lake Mendota for some sick snowkiting session and shooting.

Re: KiteAttack - a 2010 Madtown kiteriders.

Shooting and editing just for fun, no profits. It is pretty nice getting home from an awesome day of riding, buying a six pack and start editing. As far as editing software I use the inexpensive (~80 bucks) nevertheless powerful Sony Vegas Platinum. One of the few that would work ok with sony output...

There are speedflying forums here in the US you can get plenty of info and second-hand wings. It would be fun trying that in small Midwestern slopes.

With supervision by an experienced kiter on a light wind day with a small kite on a big field I don't see much of a problem. Usually you learn the sport much better on the snow than water. That's how my wife learned.
