Re: Typhoon Big Air Jump

I have seen him jump almost as high before and land them all the time, but this jump just took him so far down wind. It's about a 5 minute walk from where he took off to where he landed. Plus where he landed is super shallow so he pretty much was landing in a couple feet of water. I think my highest...

Re: ozone v8 17 mts vs. zephyr 17 mts

Go for the Edge. I loved my 2014 17m Used it in very marginal winds falling out of sky at times. 19m will cover you till about 20-22 knots if under 100kgs. 17m will turn faster and will cover you from low end 11 knots to low 20s easily then can switch to a 13 or 12m It rips upwind and this is what's...

Re: Why you should avoid self launch when you can?

Ya one of the nice things about the tether is you can put your kite up and double check you lines at the same time. This way looks alright, but would hate to see that pin not get released and the kite take the weight up while hooked in. As long as lines are good and pin releases it looks like a good...

Re: Why you should avoid self launch when you can?

Drift launch is asking for trouble sooner or later, tether launch, besides in gusty conditions is as safe as it gets. I have yet to see an incident or have one tethering but have seen numerous times kites released or slipped out of launchers hands. Things like I say one sec, they think LET GO! I see...

What do you mean by side land? Release to the leash?

Re: Chrono Launching Question

Be careful using the break line to land your kite. It is very dangerous. I only do it on my 18m in under 13 knots. I was planning to try a tether with two clips, one for chicken loop and one father away towards me by 20cm for the depower strap to give it even more depower to make sure it stays down,...
