What if you pump a kite with helium?

Hey, I've always wondered if you it would work to pump a kite with helium, since the kite would get in the air more easily. Would you be able to kite in lower winds? What would happen in higher winds? Etc.

How to prevent the board to fall off with straps?

Hello
I've recently been a bit injured when my board fell off my feet and I crashed on it, so I was wondering..
To prevent the board to fall off your feet, what do you do? Do you tighten the straps a lot, or do you raise your toes or something?

Thanks :)

Re: Seat -> Waist Harness Sore Stomach Muscles?

It probably just hurts because you are not used to riding with that harness, meaning the torso gets a better workout when using a waist harness since the center of gravity is your torso, not your hips. I might get it wrong, but it seems normal.
