Speed Flying has a distinct disadvantage to gliding with a kite while snowkiting.
YEA BUT :
A Speed-wing has a bridle system that can take ACRO ----
while the guys kite-boarding KITE, that's being used to to jump off mountains
is good for 1 to 1.5G's "At Best" !!!
In other words : " i would NOT use a kite-boarding KITE, to jump off a mountain ; but
i would ski off a mountain with a speed wing anytime someone would
agree to pay me $10K" !!
I can fly a PG quite well and a speed-wing is near the same, till it comes
to take-off & landing, then Ya need more energy or speed.
Just so Ya know , at one time i was # 4 in the world at ACRO on a HG, so
the above about not jumping off mountains with a product that isn't designed
for such is a Really Good suggestion ---------------DON'T DO THAT !!!
There are people in the past who tried to get me to do Heroin, something about
being Cool ?
My response was the same : DON'T DO THAT, and :
" i'll stick to Beer, Pot, & Pussy thanks" !!
Your NOT COOL jumping off a mountain with a Kite-boarding kite.
You Could use a medium PG with a different set of lines attached
to the bridle and be a LOT safer. it would fly a bit like a Speed-21 by flysurfer.
OH YEA -- & go take PG lessons !!
