instead of complaining about kiters kite looping, complain about the judges. If people kitelooping gets under your skin, get a life & go kite & improve your skills & personality. Some people take it all way toooo seriously

This has probably been covered, I agree most kiters don't care what spectators think....but it DOES matter what spectators think if you: a) want kite prices to drop b) want more coverage on TV of kiting events c) don't want excessive banning of kiting at local beaches. If anyone complains about any ...

I'm sure the flying characteristics of this kite will be better than the xbow, but I will doubt it will lower the bottom end of the xbow by more than 1 knot(17 contra Vs 16m xbow.).

I've got a couple, they work fine, but I personally rarely use them. Really good if your lines get snagged on rocks etc or the beach is too small to rig.

waste of time, I've removed mine. I find no situation that makes them better. Also its ify when you unhook. A fixed loop with release would work much better & safer.

there has been thousands of threads on this, I don't think anyone has been stupid enough to. The kite would be uncontrollable.

Worst comes to worst reach up & totally flag the kite. Yes it may take a couple of attempts to grab the flag line but you should always have enough room downwind to do this or else do potentially stuffed tricks further upwind. Just my 2cents worth. By the way my regular spots have pretty serious obs...

oh yeah better advise everyone not to fly a 16m in 40kts & a 12 in 50 kts. Most people with a hint of common sense & proper instruction whether from mates or instructors should know conservative limits. Good luck to those who don't--they'll probably do themselves an injury regardless. Not being mean...

It still amazes me that people like lezo can spin such absolute crap. Note how this fool has never experienced one himself. If someone inverted a bow its from a stuffed up move. If the guy in Brasil just missed the rocks then maybe he should have been out more away from the rocks in the first place....
