Re: What are your views on wind turbines / farms / energy?

They don't generate enough power, nuclear is currently the only clean(ish)answer. That massive project in France might change that though.

Re: CBK Hunstanton Kitesurf Club

We do not run the beach.. its as simple as that. I take it from your comment though that you are one of the people that do not care about others around them and do not bother with 3rd party insurance and self launch over the razor shells and complain about holes in the canopy. The bullshit rules ar...

Re: CBK Hunstanton Kitesurf Club

Must have insurance and not allowed to self launch? That's all East Anglia needs, another commercial Kitesurf operation running a "club" whose website alludes to them running the beaches and stating bullshit rules when there has never been an issue before.

Re: Iconic Gear Of Kitesurfing

Best Waroo??? :lol: I wouldn't call it iconic, it was the first of the hybrid 4 line kites to be reliable and work well but the design was a mix of design components from other kites. it was Best at its best, mass produced copies at a reasonable price....not a moan as I've owned a few Best kites. G...

I am quite sure the dent was done because you rode it into something.....hard. If you'd not have brought cheap you wouldn't need to buy twice.

Re: S2AS Rip off boards

Lol fook me that's taken a big hit Lucky for the OP that the board has delaminated so badly!! Otherwise he'd be stuck with it :roll: Still raises the same question though, are these boards being sold on eBay with the same "repairs" warranty jobs or as claimed just second hand, seems very fishy!

Re: S2AS Rip off boards

Secondhand boards, always a bad idea unless you know the seller. .... yeah because we should all be going out and buying brand new kit every year :roll: :roll: Do you buy new boards every year? I don't. I keep boards a lot longer than I do kites and do think they are a good value when brought new.

Re: Big winds and small kites?

I have found the best choice to make when it's blowing over 40 mph is another beach. , This, defiantly. When it's very windy in this country it's a gusty as hell and no fun. I'd rather sit it out and wait for a good conditions rather than get out and be ragged around going from mega powered to slog...
