Its not what you'd want to see when you woke from the anaesthetic after having a liver and kidney removed.

If I had my liver removed I'd just be happy I woke up!

Oceanadventures,
do you sell all of the brands being tested?
Or just some of them?

Yes we sell all the brands we are testing.

We just finished editing the video today, finishing up the write up to go with it. Hopefully we will have everything up tomorrow.

Huge high aspect kites are just not what we want to fly, when you can get about the same amount of power and faster performance from other kites. If you want to get on a raceboard and ride in next to nothing then those are fine, but riding twintips we have found over the years the lower aspect kites perform better. Before the Turbines the Crossbows were our lightwind kites, and when the turbines showed up it was a different world here.

Plus guys, I would love to test every kite out there, but it gets expensive, even we don't get these kites for free. If people want to send me their kites I would gladly test them for them... :D

Uploading it to Youtube now, hopefully it will be ready up soon.
