Re: Maps

My preference would be to use google earth with a ikeclub.kmz or personal .kmz file that we could keep on the forum and update as neccessary... I'm pretty much a Google Earth geek. I've got mine loaded up with placemarks for people I know, vacations spots, restaurants, you name it. So you can bet t...

Re: *BETTER VIDEOS*

Hector, loss of quality is inevitable when you compress video. Depending on the settings you choose when you create the video file, you will either get a great looking file that is huge, or a file that is smaller that won't be quite as sharp. I'm not terribly familiar with the encoding options avail...

Re: Question On Carbon Rods And Sizes

Take your kite in and see if it fits. Probably either a .2300 or .2400 size would work ok. But I'm not a dual-line guy, so take my advice with a grain of salt. I wish I could, but it's an hour one-way without traffic. I guess I can call though...I'm a lazy shopper. If it's not on the web page, I te...

Question On Carbon Rods And Sizes

I have a kite that is constructed from 6mm carbon rods. (Acrobatx) Late last year, I broke a lower spreader, and I need to get a replacement. So my question is twofold, actually. 1.) Sizing. I am looking online at parts to order, and I see that the rods are sized in English units, not metric. My rod...

The maps are currently only visible when you log in. Would there be any problem with turning on 'sharing' so that it can be viewed outside this account?

This sounds like a great time...does anyone have any suggestions or tips as far as accommodations? Where do you stay when in town? What's the "must-see" or "must-do" of the weekend? I have a 3 year old, do you think that there is enough going on to interest her? We'd probably jus...
