Postby NCKite_Ryder » Wed Nov 21, 2012 11:40 am

found this trolling on the NW kite forum.


the thread is interesting, http://www.nwkite.com/forums/t-28068-0-asc-0.html

Pretty much a textbook scenario of what not to do...

That situation looked pretty dicey - I'm so glad that guy made it in safely

On the forum post I liked the right gear for the given terrain comments

There are different days/conditions for each spot out there where TT, strapless surf / strapped surf, skimboard, raceboard each shines as the weapon of choice

Variety is the spice of life
