      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Snowkiting?

    one more thing, make sure that the kite you get can "reverse launch' . on the water, kites generally relaunch easily if there is enough wind to kitesurf. you need a lot less wind to snowkite, so it is nice to have a kite that relaunches easily. relaunching my 15 is a real pain, whereas my 10 is a piece of cake to relaunch.
  2. Snowkiting?

    nice to see a discussion about snow kiting! I have been at it several years and would add that learning to kite on the snow is quite a bit easier than in the water, plus you can always walk home... on lakes, I have seen that there is very rarely powder deeper than knee deep because it pushes down on I the ice and fills up with water. example: this afternoon, the lake I kited on had about 15 cm of powder on top of 20 cm of slush, and finally thick ice. I have two kites, a 15m and a ten. the 15 has more power in light winds, but the 10 gets in the air in even lighter winds. Check the wind patterns in your area before getting a kite... in my area we have mostly lighter breezes so the kites are large. A couple buddies of mine fly 21m foils, but I can't really recommend them because they are realllly slow and easily overpowered. although having unlimited power when you can barely feel the wind is pretty cool.
