As for a foil not being able to kite loop, you're kidding right?
I also beleive that you know me, yet allowed people to beleive I was posting under your name for some time before denying it - after I started to post here to clear my name, why would you allow that to happen?
Steve, in answer to your points:
1 - I must say, I don't read many of the replies. A lot of replies are just personal abuse, misinformed, or just plain propaganda. Semi-literacy on the part of some of the ram brigade causes me to skip right over their posts anyway, since I can't be bothered trying to decipher them. This is not to say YOU are semi-literate...
2 - This is a KiteSURFING forum. The original ridiculous thread about 8m jumps in 8 knots was from some ram guy claiming photo evidence of k48 doing these sorts of jumps on the water. It should go without saying that when we refer to 8m jumps, or any jumps for that matter, being impossible in 8 knots, we are talking about ON THE WATER.
3 - Any kite can "loop." But I have yet to see a ram air complete a full, complete 360deg rotation with the kite catching the rider on the upswing in the way that Bertrand F does it in "Zero 3." I would be keen to hear contrary evidence, especially if it is backed up by video.
4 - From the outset, when some of the ram lovers were claiming I was you, I made it quite clear this was not the case. After they kept persisting with their line, I couldn't be bothered REPEATEDLY refuting it. But I DID lay it on the line at the first mention of your name, way before you actually joined the forum.
