Casual Sexism

As a dad who is keen to encourage their young daughter into the delights of this great sport, and just as a human being, it pisses me off at the amount of casual sexism in so much of the branding/videos and similar around kitesurfing. You only have to move your eyes a few mm to the crappy kite cover...

Lewis crash was a horror and it wa great to see the other riders all react so quickly. the rescue boat came in later - but i don't know the logistics and distance involved. what was really odd was the live feed commentators just carried on talking about new kit and what a gr...

Re: Kiting alone...

in response to my earlier post - in terms of other beach users, i kind of meant life guard folk - i would never assume a dog walker would be able to help me. For me kiting alone means no other kiters about.

Kiting alone...

what's people's view's on kiting, completely alone? As in, no other kiters out and no beach users about. (our regular spot is off beaten track and low tide is well off from being viewable from road) I am pretty experienced now, have been able to self launch and land without hassle since i started ba...

Pagham kiting??

Got a house right on the beach at Pagham over easter. Near the car park at end of rough road. What's the local word on kiting that spot? I've seen some older threads on restrictions/no goes etc, but nothing recent. cheers!

Re: the poo moment

thanks for all the sound advice... in terms of doing a "down loop" is this the same as straight kite loop? which i took to be a full 360 loop of the kite? or is down loop something else?
