Re: LEI or another FB? Can't decide.

Why not get a closed depoweable foil ...best of both worlds...you can go on water as well as land and you'll have a bigger wind range for each kite

Re: Kitesurfing Ban on its way

with flagged up issues with dog walkers being the most disturbing to nesting birds it's a wonder they don't ask them for permits ??

Re: Speed 3 12m... Are they really as good as they sound?

This kite jumps incredibly well in low winds....for me at 70 kg don't really need anything bigger (wish I actually owned one instead of just borrowing :-D )...you'll be a happy bunny

Re: south coast spots?

If you want to be out of london - look around the Sevenoakes way. You are central to the south coast spots as well as the south Essex ones (southend) and the more easterly ones. I live in SE london (Crystal Palace) and it takes me an hour to get to Southens /lancing and minster and and hour and half...
