Re: Switch Helium 18m-Light Wind Kite

Hi Bill, Thank you for clarifying the durability, just because my Windsurfing WindWing year 2000 7.5m Synthesis is still holding up great, with a light-wind Seatrend AVS combo, left good memories from those days in the now. DrLW ..you say most of the kites perform similarly, why even have a ranking...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2015

So.... Lets apply pmu's logic to race cars. Formula one race cars are mechanically inferior. Not one formula one car has ever won a world rally championship race. Nor have they won any tractor pulls. This makes them inferior. Less that .0001% of the motor racing population have a formula one car. T...

Re: Switch Helium 18m-Light Wind Kite

In 2013 i was having the Epic infinity, and i prefer the Helium because off the wind range, if the wind comes up , no problem. 17 kntswithout problem. Riding with big size in wind can be fun with the helium in 10 /11 knts you can make unhooked tricks without problems. So with this kite i can work a...

Re: New Product: Switch Launches Lightwind Kite Helium

But, for making speculative comparisons based on weight or $$, my opinion is weight/ projected sqm and cost/ projected sqm are the most diagnostic. Unfortunately, true weight and projected area data are not readily available for many kites. For the Helium, weight/PA = 355gm/sqm; $$/PA = $65.51. We ...

Re: carafino

IMHO as far as Carafino concerned He think he's something special but just an ego maniac and having a secret legendary R & D what no one else has thought of. He thinks he is the inventor of KB hydrofoils, but he took the concept from Air Chair to just kiteboarding, as far as history goes in the book...

Re: Liquid Force fun foil

Why would you want anyone starting from scratch? No one does this in R&D. A huge part of R&D is to get an overview of what everybody else is doing and then figuring out how to improve a design unless you are doing basic research on something entirely new. LF did this in terms of cost reduction to p...

Re: Waterproof case suggestion for ipod touch

Thanks, no it's a 4th gen. I should have mentioned that in the original. It looks like most of the good manufacturers don't support anything older than 5th gen right now. Figures. I know they used to make the 4th gen. case also and I'm sure most likely they still have it. Try to send them an E-Mail...
