My "I ride for ben sticker", Burton Gore tex mitt (syn), and my stomp pads all came in today. And I love them. And my case was dismissed today.

First day since April that it doesn't rain! And then this big yellow bright warming thing appeared at the sky and the world became coloured again... forgot the name... but I love it!

Badass. Did you get any footage from your drift?

I'm intrigued about kiteboarding...what kind of sustained winds you need for that?

No filming yet. Still got a rented helmet, I'll wait till my own finally arrives. Like with snowboarding, the gear is rather suited for guys than for girls. Nothing in stock that fits me...

Depends on the size and type of your kite, the board, and your weight it's much more complicated to get the right gear than with snowboarding You need at least two, better three kite sizes to get the best out of the wind range.
I've seen guys about 190lbs with 17m2 delta kites having a great time at 3bft. I'd have flown right over the ocean with such a huge sail Lighter ones took 15m2 and girls my weightclass 10m2.
While exercising, hubby had the same 8m2 as me at 4bft. He had a good time, well, I also had a great time but was liftet out of the water if not careful. Some lbs more or less make a big difference. This kites have unbelievable power. It's fascinating! Try it if you have a school close by!

I will definitely look into it. Tennessee isn't near any coast, but my wife and I head up to Maryland every year in the summer. I might try and find a school up there.

Thanks for all the info neni!
