I joined the generator death cult the other day

Postby seano » Mon May 12, 2008 12:31 am

Finally after months of gruelling initiation beat-downs.

Generators 7.5m & 5.5m have been smuggled through secret cell networks to my isolated ends of the earth.

I'm STOKED with the dreaded death generator, & I'm bound for extinction, flying unhooked towards an evolutionary dead end.

I know , I know, I know..... I'm out-moded & superseded by the Flat-Hybrid-with-C-like-feel-Bridal-Pulley-Technological-Breakthrough.

But I dont care,

I'm way upwind of all that B.S.

Ha haha aahaa haa ha!!!

Disclaimer: For this post, I am collecting royalties from Airush, Tophat ,Felix, SWK,et al & I am getting an all expenses paid trip to Myanmar kiting the waves of disease in the Irawadi. The dictatorship government is very pleased to be welcoming my generator death-cult

Translation; seano's being waiting months for his ordered generators to arrive, and at last against all odds , Airush got their shit together and shipped seano's kites to NZ, and seano is stokeddddddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After his first try on the 7.5 he is a believer, destined to a future of being an Airush devotee :thumb: :thumb:

Congratulations, could be worthwhile chucking up a review and see how many bows you can convert :lol:

Enjoy

Hands down the best post of the year. See you in Myanmar.

P.S. I was paid 10,000 Euros to post this.

I heard that Myanmar is a bit gusty and offshore. Maybe a bow might have been better.

They show a little video before the plane lands in Myanmar that tells you they have a zero tolerance policy for smuggling bridles into the country and the penalty is death.


Welcome to the dark side.

awesome to hear you like your kites.
very jealous of your travels.

just a curious question, not to start a stupid debate: what size kites you got? How many?(seems one need more C's then Hybrids')(like way back when)
Please, let's not start a debate, I am just asking on what gear to take to travel


How is the kiting in Maynmar? Similar to Hawaii?
I need to start traveling again, that's why I ask.

Myanmar is just like Kahala with typhoid or Toes with gangrene.


For Oahu (12-30mph) I (and all the others who fly the dark kite) have a 5.5m and a 7.5m. If it's too light to go on the 7.5 no one is kiting on anything, if it's too windy for the 5.5m then it's just crap anyway. Just my humble well paid opinion. The 7.5 pretty close in generated pull to other brands 9m Cs but very stable and tame.

ps. I found out Toby is paying me in Rupiah and not Euros. How much is 10,000 rupees?

and you thought I was paid by airush. hah.

for comparison, The guys on Torches are on 9m and 7m. When I flew bows I had a nine and a six DNA to go in the same exact wind or a 7 and 9 shockwave. Now guys with bows on this side mostly fly the 9 cult or 9 helix. The 9m bows have a huge wind range and they can almost keep up with the 7.5 generator in the light winds (usually the bow guys bust a 12 for the really light stuff but they are mostly bigger guys) the real increase in wind range with a bow is that you can stay on your 9 when it is blowing 30 plus while us fixed loop guys go get our 5.5s. Not to start a debate either but the bows "advantage" seems to be more wind range on the upper end at the expense of light wind performance. This makes sense when you consider that they are made for "depower" and not "morepower" The generator is philosophically the opposite: a kite designed for "morepower" or maximum efficiency per size.

Short answer is I don't own any more kites than I used to but I wish I had a 3.5 and I might start flying the 9 again once in a while when the sock hangs limp.

Hey just out of interest what overall line length from bar to end of lines are you using on these kites?
