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 ?
