      hello -

      i agree with Dave Culps comments... There are more than a dozen kitesurf
      forums around as a kitesurfer i would like them all to be in one place but
      thats up to us kitesurfers to do that !

      actually i stopped (at least temporarily) the sponsorship of the egroup. My
      concept was to get equipment in exchange of the sponsorship so that i could
      lend it out to the "not so fortunate" kids at my spot to teach them how to
      kitesurf. Turns out this is not as easy as i hoped for, due to a lack of
      time on my part mostly.

      Therefore I will not ask for sponsors for a little while. The fee to
      maintain the group addfree has been paid for the year so we might as well
      enjoy it !

      I am totally ok with anybody framing the egroup - there are quite a few that
      do it already. in any case you can frame it independent of what I think. I
      dont see the group as "mine". I like to take care of it but its "owned" by
      the web kitesurfing community.

      Go ahead and frame away !
