get out the wind meter and show some light wind. riding in offshore conditions right behind a sand bar or small island is doing to look buttery smooth and light. it could be 15 knots easily... how do we know? we don't,,....
What don't they show how the kite performs in swell waves and whitewash in light wind? why because it wont be performing that well,/..... aaaarrrg!.
ps this rant is not aimed directly at naish. but any company that shows there kites in potentially missleading ways.
well if someone shows a wind meter, then that is criticized. I think the companies on this site has absolutely no where to go. There is NO way you can show anything to someone who chooses to be super skeptical about everything.
I generally do not think it is a good idea to show windmeters but who cares. You can see it is light. I know that spot. There is nothing to hide:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE_xJu8YEzk
The spot they are riding, is notoriously light. It is usually about 5 mph less wind than Kailua. Nothing behind it that blocks wind on the surface. In fact there is nothing but water on all sides of them for over a mile in every direction.
If we do not let companies be excited about their products what kind of commercials do you want?
Ihave the kite it is a fantastic light wind weapon. Super fun on a strapless board in ultralight wind, or a TT..jumps in super light winds. In fact I'm bringing it down to the beach now
