Re: Lofting/Deadly Dragging

Re: Kiter dies in NYC - Plumb Beach

sad to hear, RIP NYC kiter! The sport has its risk...but much safer than other sports. The problem is the bad education about the risks when getting lessons. Time is too short, people to cheap to pay a price to not only get onto the board, but also learn the most important basics for safety and wea...

Re: RRD safety system fail

Easy way to check if QR will work under load attach kite to car or jeep in high winds loop kite ... are you for real... :o ... Watch your lines snap or kite rip in half.

Re: RRD safety system fail

Jessica as others have pointed out this is not a failure of the RRD system, this is how a mini-5th line system is supposed to work. A mini-5th line system relies on the bridle to depower the kite so if the bridle is compromised (for instance in a death loop), you are supposed to completely release ...

I cannot imagine not knowing how things work and what the options are and which are better then the other. It seems crazy to me not to question everything.
