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.
:lol:

well for what it's worth I tried Switch Nitro once and hated it, though not sure what bar setting where set.
I am assuming you are joking but we never know on this forum haha. actually i don't care what he rides, i don't think it's that common to boost that high on flat water. I don't follow woo result that much but most boost over 15m on twintip are off kicker.

lol, just realized Graeme is Core distributor maybe he wasn't joking :o then i apologize you can edit out switch from my post and replace it with core, i wouldn't care my point wasn't about the kite anyway.
Though i still hope deep down you were joking because it's pretty funny joke

lol dude I don't give a shit about Switch, I flew one once for 1min and didn't like it. Don't have any of their gear and don't plan on getting any.
why are you busting my ball with your fake edit and your edited post, You just trashed Core brand with your nasty attitude. Good job as Core distributor.

First of all I respect Joshua performance but don't give a shit he was on Core XR5 or whatever kite or brand.

EDIT: Anyway since you were not joking, I will delete my initial post since I don't care about pimping Switch or whatever.

Fake edit?

wasn't exactly 'busting your balls', other than the original exclamation for which I apologise , but there was no intention to 'fake' any edit.


Ok OK I see it now, it's this forum ware it keeps logging me out before each post even after it's corrected.

Apologies again

lol ok so you dno' t like switch because they don' t have shop I thought you didn't like the kite design. Well anyway I was just impressed with flat water boosting and was interesting to point out what kind of wind is needed for that. Sorry you got a grudge about distribution of switch brand but I have no idea how that stuff works.

There's no need for that, I'm happy enough you're not a Switch rider doing his 'duty' and you have my sincere apologies once again for any perceived personal insult to that end. I'm right out of practise and either the firmware or my browser keeps logging me out at every post, so unless I copy what I've written or edited, it all goes pear shaped or vanishes.
