      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.

Best US Domestic Destinations?

Recommended Posts

What're the top places to kiteboard in the US? Where are the hot spots where the sport is blowing up? There's a fledgling scene here in Virginia Beach, big time operations down in Hatteras.

 

I'm looking to plan a couple of domestic vacations and want to be able to go kiting when I get there.

 

Thanks for the help!

That's a good list.

 

I would also add Sherman Island, CA, South Padre Island (SPI), TX, Floras Lake, OR coast, and Lake McConaughy, NE (where most of Denver kites in the Summer).

 

If you're planning a vacation to a big city then some of the more remote destinations may not be your best bet.

 

You should also consider each location's wind season. For example, South TX (SPI & Corpus) windy season is just beginning as East & West coast locations are shutting down in the Fall. That's why you'll see lots of people from Canada and Northern US latitudes at SPI during late Fall, Winter, and early Spring. You should be able to find great wind at one of these locations throughout the entire year. Hawaii's (Maui & Oahu) wind is the most consistent in the Summer but its warm so many kiters go there late Fall, Winter, and early Spring.
