I got more than 200 sessions on woodownunder wrote: ↑Wed Feb 21, 2018 2:54 amWell,
to be fair, I'm still waiting to read "how can a gadget improve your kiting?". Any gadget.
The only proper 'gadget' is a camera, which can tell you a lot. Also, let's not forget our kiting buddies. One buddy with a camera is worth 100(0) sessions with a gadget.
Have you all forgotten "an picture says more than 1000 words"? Why do you think all pros are heavily relying on videos! I recon Toby reviewed a million times his vids! No, he did not review a gadget results purely because they have no value as such. They are fun, don't get me wrong, but have no value.
Sorry, but after 2 years of using a gadget, I appreciate this: less is more. Less, as less things to worry about, maintain and care.
On this premises, buy whatever you want. However, I would be interested to hear the above answer after 200-400 sessions...
About to break 100km in total height..
I like to use it as my session log. The stats, together with a picture and short description (kite/size and overall impression) give good representation of the session.. I often use gopro to snap an action shot, so it's fun to browse through the old entries..
I am well passed trying to beat myself on every single jump.. I turn it on even when I know I won't be breaking any records...like going on 17m in 9kts.. it's still a log entry and a memory...
Now, you mentioned style... I'd argue that once you can jump over 40ft on woo with some consistency you'd have enough style to show.. I mean you could probably manage a board off, one foot ,some rotations, etc.. And no one said that once the woo is on you have to do just tabletops on each jump Even those can be done in style.. check Kevin's big woo jump at KOTA...
just my 2 cents..
