Lost Bar on Medicine Lake

Hi all,
My lines got tangled at Medicine lake today.
For those kiting there, be careful. The weed monster is there.

Anyway, my bar with lines ended up being in the weeds somewhere and we could not find it.
If anyone finds it please let me know.
This is a bar for my 14m Rally.

Thank you.
Pete

Isla Blanca is a very cool place.

Re: Perfect Medicine Lake winds lining up for tomorrow

This was my season opener. It was a short session for me after 30 min, when I stopped feeling my fingers and it was time to get out and worm up. Will be shopping for new gloves.
I agree with you on the wind direction for Medicine, NW is the choice.

Re: Cozumel Island 4th annual Kite Event.

Ola, I just came back from Playa Del Carmen. Stayed at Hotel RIU Palace. Only 2 windy days out of the 7 day vacation but still plenty to enjoy. There is a local kite school right on the beach. The owner Mickey Roy is a very cool guy and you can rent wathever you need. Check it out: http://www.pdckit...

Re: Driving to Mille on Friday morning

Great! Driving separate is fine. I just wanted to ensure I'm not kiting by myself, which will be very boring.
What will be the best spot at Mille considering the wind direction?

Re: Max Force = kite (sq. meters) x rider (lbs) x wind (mph)

Here is more accurate definition of this question: A force is pulling a 100 kg kiter across water surface. The force acts at an angle of 45 degrees above the surface. Assuming that the coefficient of friction is 0.5 and that the kiter moves with 10 m/h. How big of a kite he/she needs to have if the ...
