So the video shows it takes two people to pre-inflate the 21M Ram kite? hmmmmmmm.
Most of us can inflate our LEI kites and self launch, right?

Chris knows how to make light wind work on a 13.5 but I prefer one of Dimitri's kites because he refuses to tell me the actual size.

I'm so dumb I wouldn't know what to do with the real numbers, but I'm glad somebody has figured out how to protect me from my own ignorance.

:D

PS that Kahoona is impressive.

At 160lbs the Kahoona 13.5 with a Slingshot Glide has been the best for me. Had a 2008 17m Waroo and loved it. Great feel surprising responsiveness. I had the opportunity to put it up side by side with a 2010 Kahoona 13.5 in very light wind. I could not even get planing on the Waroo and the Kahoona kept me up wind. Sold the Waroo.

oh look , that kiter almost popped his spinal disks while pumping up his 17 sqm ""lightwind"" tube kite..
then, motivated to go out on the water because those flysurfer guys were ripping, he was relaunching more often than riding because his kite "hindenburged" on him repeatedly.. relaunching was a pain in the a*, because water accumulated between sail and fronttube, making the kite sticky to the water..

-- ok - lets not start a flamewar :)
back-to-topic: any news on the tube kite market ? new products in sight ? still no larger tube kites than 17 or 18 sqm ?
