Wow - how high is that?

Postby PinkNorthPride » Wed Nov 08, 2017 1:32 pm

I just read Josh Emanuel jumped 28.9 mtrs on his Core XR5.

That's like nearly 7 double decker London Buses stacked up.

Or for our colonial cousins it's 417 Big Macs.. (Big Mac = 2.75 inches)

Or given the average size of US 'mens bits' that's like the height of over 208 dicks?

You should try one Toby, dump that old North thing you ride.. I'm assuming your still riding North?

They are exceptional Kites Core, and the XR5 is a bit special everyone we've sold one to this summer has beaten their personal Woo best height.

on Facebook "Diez Treize" / woo "Didier Meliani SwitchNi" just boosted 20.6m off flat water on twintip!
he has some video on facebook, looks quite legit, pretty impressive, wind gusting 40/50 knots, apparently the take off area was somewhat sheltered else he said could barely hold edge at times, and landing area was so strong that he had to be really careful on landing them with a safe late redirect over 12 instead of heliloop the hell out of them.
Dude there is a certain etiquette posting on forums , one of which is not filthy up a Core thread with a scum of the earth brand like switch, nobody cares what a switch kite did, it's a selfish outfit overcharging for average kites and sharing big profits with no-one, it contributes nothing to the industry just looks after itself so do us a favour eh, go and start your own thread.
