get a life and get a LEI A more constructive reason to consider a tube kite is they can't fill up with water. Flysurfer's drain system is phenomenal but you can still have an equipment failure or total wind dropout which will leave you swimmin. 5 liters of water in that big foil and suddenly you fe...

You could consider using 7/64 samson amsteel grey - $.11/ft at seattle marine. I'v used it on a P11 centerline with no problem. It is a touch thick but you can splice it like the regular flysurfer lines. It does need to be stretched big time. http://www.samsonrope.com/home/commercial-marine/12s%2012...

the nerdy answer recognize that sled type kites such as inflatables and arcs use lift at the wingtips to maintain the span of the kite. wings create lift at the expense of "induced drag" which is dependent on the angle of attack. therefore the lift sled kites make at their wingtips induces drag that...

It seems to me that if you loop the kite straight overhead once you are gliding it is like flying a glider in a circle. There is a point when you are pointing the kite downwind where you will have the greatest groundspeed. Assuming airspeed is constant groundspeed is greatest when you are flying dow...
