Alameda - Lost Kite - Cabrinha Recon

Postby reyrivera » Thu Aug 16, 2007 10:14 pm

I'm posting this for a fellow kiter, Kahn (spelling correct?) since his user id is not valid yet.

Not sure what happened, but his kite came off his harness and he had to release and let go of the kite, don't know if he had a kite leash. It went tumbling down towards Harbor Bay across the small bridge around 4 p.m. today.

Its a Cabrinha Recon with an element bar, 4 line C kite, 10 meter. Its an older molder kite, but its only been used about 4 times, so still a very good kite. The kite is yellow and black trim.

If anyone has seen it, please let me know.

By the way, how does the recon work? I was told that you can relaunch this C kite backwards. Anyone know how this is done on this kite? Old school, yet interesting way to relaunch a kite.

What is his UserID btw? Every day I need to activate accounts. Many of them are from spammers selling viagra, etc., so they get deleted as a matter of course. But despite asking for people to post information in the occupation and interests fields during registration, many don't. Then unless their email adresses or user names are obvious, I don't know if they're spammers or spambots, so some accounts get delayed as I'll send out an inquiry email to all who registered with ambiguous acocunts.

So if his gets delayed, it's because I don't know if he's a kiter or a spammer, but I hope he gets his kite back.

What's his email address?

Yes, I'm a dumb ass. Trying to get on my board for the firs time on my own and lost my brand new 10M Cabrinha Element (Yellow & Black). Reward if found! Call Khanh @ (415) 572-9701. Many Thanks.




it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
