A new user who's learning suggested that a "Beginner Guide/FAQ to Kiteboarding" might be a useful article if anyone's up to it...

C'mon people, let's get this rolling. I bet if any of the prizes were wind, you'd all be on it. The contest will be extended through January at any rate to give you all some more time and there may be even more prizes also!

Oliver,

You posted the contest on Skypilot (canadian website) - I sent in a review for the contest but I just noticed it is only open to U.S residents?

Is this the case...

Well, I think Canada is OK, I don't know if you'll have to pay any duties on it or anything. The main thing was that we didn't want to end having to pay shipping on items to Africa, Europe or beyond!

Good luck,
Oliver

I hear ya! I know that I looked into shipping a prize to Africa and it cost more to ship then the prize was worth...

If I am fortunate to win a prize I would be happy to cover the shipping costs.

Later

skypilot, what country are you talking about?


P.S: I think you should open the contest to the whole world. Just add a note saying that people living outside of the US will have to pay shipping in case they win. Just a sugestion...

Bye
