Re: thieving *%#$s

It was someone on a bike as i could follow their bike tracks and the deviation they took up to the dune that it was next to. Thanks for all the posts. It was in the middle of nowhere and after asking there's not a local police station that I could have gone to. It would only be in a larger town 10+ ...

thieving *%#$s

A bit of a long shot maybe, but does anyone have an old 12m bag for a 2006 Vegas from a kite they've trashed. Just had mine nicked on a beach in France. I thought a completely deserted beach in the middle of nowhere at 8am would be fine, but evidently not!! I rarely keep the wing tip batons in, so a...

Mauritius or Zanzibar

Looking at 2009 holidays for two (me + wife). Has anyone been to either Mauritius or Zanzibar in early June?

Need the destinations to be wind sure, wife friendly and warm.

Any tips or advice would be cool.

Surfboard Footstraps

There used to be an excellent thread on how to fit inserts to a surfboard so that it could be used with straps. I've had a good look and search, but can't find it. Does it still exist or could someone explain it again for me as I now have a secondhand surfboard? Can someone also point me in the dire...

Re: Could this be the best kite surf magazine of all time...

Love the mag. Hands down the best and I've subscribed to them all over the years.

Is there any chance of some of he content being published in an iPhone friendly way? Hard to take the PC up to the bog :wink:

A small request to keep it a leading edge mag.

I have a week off, Brazil is one option are there any others with slightly cheaper flights?

Not sure if the Caribbean is any good that time of year.

Mull

Hi,

I'm heading up to Scotland for a few days in September and will visit Mull and then probably head over to Fort William. Should I take my kites to Mull?

Unfortunately not got enough time to go to Tiree
