Re: Core and German engineering meme

Excellent marketing if you ask me. Otherwise how is a car that claims to be well engineered yet constantly breaks down like clock work?

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

If you have a leash, and the kite takes you on a trajectory off the water, through the air and land back on the water - while you are travelling on that trajectory with the leash taut, the leash will act as an aiming device, to make the board follow a similar trajectory to your body. When you stop,...

You got to understand that the board return is really slow. There is no whipping of the leash as it doesn’t have any bungee action.

Re: Impending trade war: Tariffs affecting the kite industry?

China and EU don't want the trade war Trump is so eager to start. The only way of influencing this guy seems to be via his voters...
