Re: Aluula selling off OR ??

Wild guess: "perceived conflict of interest" + "sold material to 16 wind sport brand" = Maybe other brand complain about some of these things that could be seen as unfair competition: - If and/or there is more demand that what is possible to produce, which company will take prior...

Hopefully will get out of my lazy ass and stop reading into SJW stuff/cancel culture things and redo a database on El Nino/La Nina and Neutral from 2004 to 2020 instead. (Pretty sure can do this first part in 2-3hours max) *** For Nitinaht Lake I would compare vs session logs June/July/Aug of each y...

Tempy, I was bored sometimes in 2013 and also wanted to figure out, what does it means for Van Island in regard to chance of wind if we under La Nina / El Nino, or neutral. So double checked the history of 8 years (2004-2012) on which months were La Nina: Red , El Nino: Blue and Neutral: Black. (It ...

IMO no need to worry at all if there is already 1 or 2 kiter on the water. Especially on week end or after work week days. Yesterday there was 2 group of women sun bathing near launch area. If there was not another kiter present I would have asked them if they stay longer, and explaining the situati...

Cook St "Thieves" on the lookout

I might be wrong on this, but I think that there are homeless people looking to score value items / are on the look out at cook st. -If you are by yourself kiting at cook st, maybe just bring 1 kite and 1 board , and do not leave your car keys in your kite bag (keys might be safer on top, just be di...

Launch at cook st on the beach instead, way safer :) As for testing some jump/air: With your 17m when wind is S, SSE and there is a lot of updraft go near shore slowly and bring bar in. As long as you are not going fast and load like a regular jump, you should go up, like a ladder, and go down upwin...

KUS, if not too late, I would like 2 pair.
1 pair the normal ones like I order in the past
1 pair the one with ankle and Kevlar.

Most of my boots/running shoes are either size 9 and or 9 and 1/2. (Depend on shoe/boots.)

Do you know if ATAN makes gloves as well?

Amir, I called you back, but on your return call you left me a message saying you could not understand a word of what I was trying to say. I called back and you didn't call back.

Adolf might have a solution. I called him but he was quite busy, and he is quite busy this week to but he said he might come up with some sort of solution later this week. Brandon pretty much sum it up with its latest post though.
