I had heard rumours that flexi were having a tough time but things are obviously worse than I thought :)

Re: Teaching daughter - Has anyone done this?

Couldn't bring myself to teach mine, taught them to windsurf, snowboard, ride mountain bikes, but drew the line at kitesurfing and anyway they didn't want me to (teach them), so my 2nd went to Tarifa to visit friends said she'd learn whilst she was there, (she was teaching English down there for a ...

Re: 14m Catalyst used as paraglider

He had a reserve shoot too by the looks of it, so he's not stupid. His landing positioning and touchdown were near perfect, a lot of experience there... It was a very impressive landing I was surprised at how soft it was. I was thinking he must be steering by putting the kite slightly to the left a...

Re: Kiting Hayling Island?

Getting people to pay to use a "beach" is always going to be controversial. I could never understand why windsurfers had to pay to use west wittering, I cant really see any justification for it to be honest other than a business opportunity. Kitesurfing is a bit different because it does have some v...

Re: Kite Magazines do you read any?

Will be interesting to see how you do with Core. Certainly brave taking on a brand that isnt really developed in the market and charges at the upper end of the price spectrum. Wont be as easy to sell as Slingshot - unless there is a massive influx of germans who all seem vey keen on the brand (proba...

Re: Kite Magazines do you read any?

I wouldnt waste your money on an advertising campaign if that is what you are thinking GRF. I doubt many people ever buy a kite based on an advert in a mazagine (or even buy them). In my opinion best way to sell kites is to get them on the beach where people can see them in action etc and making sur...

I can tell you now the person you need for this is Waverider. I wouldnt be surprised if he didnt win an Oscar. Although I can warn you now not to include any of his ideas about how to cure weaver fish stings or even ask him about the subject. There is also a lady who kites at lancing who is getting ...
