Re: jumping abdominal strains

I had the same problem when i started jumping. What i noticed i would hold my breath and tighten my abbs when i jumped. Would have terrible pain the next day, made it hard to do anything. Make sure you stay relaxed and breathe when you jump. One your used to jumping it will get better.

Re: Auto Zenith ???

Re: Offshore wind farm may wreck NE winds for the Outer Bank

Ive kited tug hill right in and around big wind turbins without noticable turbulance or wind loss. Also on the aircraft vortices, the size of the vortice depends more on the weight of the aircraft then the speed of the aircraft. With the low blade loading on a wind turbine any disturbance from the b...

Re: dual purpose training kite

a fixed bridle has roughly twice the power of a fixed bridal kite This is a false statement. A 5 meter kite will have the power of a 5 meter kite no matter if its a depowed or fixed bridal. A depower kite can reduce the power from there. Now there will be slight losses because of extra bridaling pu...
