I use a line keeper and I can connect them while my electric pump is pumping my kite.
Care to make it interesting?
Are you 100% sure that you can self launch faster than me..... let's say a 19m2 in 8-9 knots
We both work and make hard earned money
How about a $500 bet ?
are you ready to lose that money in case you could be wrong?
P.S. I never bet unless i am 100% sure
That's a lot of money.....consult your wife first about this
You are fast compared to the people you kite with....but against me you are 100% sure ?
Here are the simple rules
Use your largest (17-18-19) kitte and have your wife film you....she cannot touch kite...or help
It has to be uncut in real time...all in one take
Start the clock from the moment you put the kite on the beach still folded
Stop the clock from the moment the kite successfully takes off the beach
I have done it ( with harness already on ) in 4 minutes 15 seconds......6 PSI in kite...27m lines..XR2
Already have my video to prove it.....last night session i rushed and got 19km2 up in 4 minutes flat
Get to work on yours
I don't think I am ready to take that bet just yet because...
1. Just finished an awesome day of kiting in 35 deg F air temp... Certainly not going to be timing or videoing in these conditions.
2. Most of the time I kite in areas where you must water launch
3. My biggest kite is a 13m so that would not be fair to you.
4. I would never pump a kite unless I had at least 10 knots of wind
So for the time being you are the king, but don't get too comfy... I'm no slouch and even if it did take me more time to pump my kite, that time can be used to prepare for launch.
