Re: Kiters who are Mountain Bikers. A quick question...

Re: Global winds...getting less?

Where were you that time on the internet where some kitesurfers debunked global warming?

Re: Ram Airs crash in 2014

PMU's posts do far more for the promotion and awareness of foil kites than anything else I've seen on the web.

He posts unabomber-style rants, foil owners and enthusiasts respond like normal human beings - I think this is actually reverse trolling to promote foil kites.

Re: Do you log your sessions?

Yes, using Endomondo. It's a decent app for biking, jogging, or anything else that lets you carry a mobile device around with you while you do something active. For kiting you have to manually enter your session, which you can do from the web as well. That's fine for me, my main goal is to keep all ...

Re: Do Kites Fly Better with Strut Vavles Closed?

It absolutely will make a difference. If all the bladders are openly connected to each other, then any extra force applied on any bladder will be allowed to deform more, because there's more space for the displaced air to escape to. To prove the point, imagine a gigantic/infinitely sized kite with a...

Re: nightmare situation wrapped in someone else's lines

The extra effort to cut a line with a single bladed knife vs. the double blade one is significant.

No single-blade knives should be sold or carried, they're just a false sense of security.

Re: 569 Kilometers Non Stop

Impressive! I wonder what the quads feel like after that.

Also reminds me that we're due for another "do you piss in your wetsuit" thread.

Re: Maui, Kanaha a shark attacked a unmanned kiteboard

The odds are you're never going to get bitten (tested) by a shark, die in a terrorist attack, or get struck by lightning. These things capture the imagination because they're brutally dramatic and violent events. You're much more likely to get mangled in a traffic accident, but you don't stay up nig...
