Re: Voting for KOTA - confusing

These will be considered by the judges...but not chosen because of the score.

They decide who they want. Simple as that.

Simple question: is it worth putting up that risk for a fighting, cold and no tricks session in 40 knots, where the chance of an injury or even fatality is pretty high?
Yes. Megaloops.
for pros, yes.

not average joe

Re: Fatality in France

Simple question: is it worth putting up that risk for a fighting, cold and no tricks session in 40 knots, where the chance of an injury or even fatality is pretty high? Or just stay home and wait for the next good and fun session? And more of those in your future. If shit happens you will miss many ...

Re: Fatality in France

Unfortunately people launch without a hand on the quick release...one of the first things which need to be taught...who of you is doing this? Barely anyone. I do, and it saved me few times. People who don't do it...be prepared to die. Cannot repeat it enough, but people do what they do...and are res...

Re: woo2 vs. Woo3 and why I've recommended upgrading for higher jumps
