A good article about kite line length
 
Long or short lines... 
Have you ever wandered how the lines' length influence our kite's behavior ?

Great video! I came across it while researching kitesurfing in CR. I've surfed down there a few times but never kited. It looks like there are great conditions. Did you kite both coasts?

I couldn't find a KML of the Fairfax County Cross Country trail so I made one. This will come in handy.

This is really cool. Researchers did a huge study and figured out how to calculate your vo2max(how well your body uses oxygen) using just 5 questions. The results pretty much tell you your true fitness age. Try it. It might motivate you to do better or let you know you're on the right track. http://www.ntnu.edu/cerg/vo2max
