that is where I fly my kite most of the time ... inland. turbulence, 190 degree, yo-yo wind ... all in one ... on nearly every 3rd windy day ... take me there, I handle it ... I can not picture myself flying my Rev in a purest consistence windspeed, straightest line wind on a beach ... my kite will probably be more still-er than still, when hovering ... LOL
hardest I ever fly is flying a Rev and walking across under the very low twin spaced out highway bridges ... like only 1 time success out of 50 tries ... LOL ... of course, on a 50 ft line.
Sorry that I hijacked it ... because I am still fighting against turbulence wind
I am a rank rookie. I have flown a few friends kites and have been bitten by the "kite bug"!! The kites I have played with are the Prism Jazz and a 2m. foil by Slingshot. Oh boy can that Slingshot pull, lots of fun and I'm sure there is a lot to do with foils. But I'm sorta leaning towards a sport kite. Seems like there are more things the "framed" kite will let you do.
I am exploring the kite world and trying to make an informed choice for my first kite. I live in Beize, on the Caribbean shore and do not have any wind problem, (likely too much wind at times). At this time I believe I am leaning towards the Prism Quantum. The second choice is Premier Widow. The Quantum is leading because of budget at this time. I am open to any advice from some experienced fliers.
Thanks in advance.
Well as it stands I'm the odd one out in the family with both my wife and daughter having a two line and me not ! So in the words of the grate Deafthunder "MINE !! "

It's usually about 25-30 minutes down the island. If visitor traffic is very heavy, you can add about 5-10 more minutes. It's about 20 miles but the speed limit is 35-45 mph. And don't try to speed because there are speed traps along the way. We should be home from all our travels by then.
We fly at the point by what's left of the rock jetty. Winds from any direction are flyable. Northwest winds are the only ones that are difficult because of the Fort and the dunes. But there's plenty of beach to move away from turbulence.
