Re: Wash or not wash your kites

if you only hit salt water you will just not wash your kite. Its only an idea whcih comes if you mostly hit fresh water and then rarely salt. I never wash my kites and I ride them until they are used up - so I am interested in keeping them in good condition.

Re: Stem Cell Treatment for Shoulder?

LOL - you might well turn into a rabbit afterwards ...

Just forget it. I do medical devices and my wife works on stem cells. Their time will certainly come but they are certainly not there.

Re: biggest regret purchase

I saw a lot. For me the worst was the Slingshot Link in either modification. Then tight after that was the Windwing Rampage.

Re: List of all Kite, Board, Foil, Ramair brands

Great list and especially great history in the ones which didn’t make it. Would be interesting to boil it down who actually makes kites and not only rebrands them.
