How would a comparable foil react to the 55 knot gusts my kite was getting blasted with?
no way on earth that he was ever out in 55knots.
why Tone, does the wind not blow that hard? The picture I posted was taken of me on 10/26/10
graph for that day
here is a pic of the system that produced the wind
here is the next day, we drove around Lake MI to position ourselves to get it again
my buddy on a 4m
I guess then there is no way that my friends and I did a 10 mile downwinder In which I self landed my 6m in that wind and then grabed my buddies kites, nah couldn't happen. These are the conditions (this being the extreme end of it) that I am demanding reliable performance out of my gear. Believe it or not the 4m was alot of fun and reacted like any other kite in appropriate wind.
WTF is up with the Penis Pumps
I asked for visual evidence of somebody actually killing it on foils and the only responses I got was two clips of a guy boosting, yeah that is not quite what I was looking for. Worse off those were posted by a pro of a pro and it was nic nac stuff that half the guys I ride with can do on any used sle out there. Tone questioned the validity of my post and the average foil rider whom I am asking for answers just started talking about Penis Pumps.
so PMU may not go about it the right way but you guys can't prove him wrong with anything worth looking at.
