Re: New Inflatable Rash shirt

Perhaps try blowing up a vest while rolled in surf tangled in your lines... not everyone likes to wear bulky vests while kiting..

New Inflatable Rash shirt

This looks like a great idea - many uses without the bulk of a vest or life jacket. Get rolled and tangled in the surf, at least you could surface to cut yourself away.. your kids in water.. :thumb:

Work your way back to a happy medium... steered loop..
