forum for kitesurfers

Hi all,
i´m the maker of the jojo- video clip.
for clearing up:
The rider´s name ist jojo and the kite was an 12.5 Warrior.
Our winds @ epplesee are always gusty, but have never thermical lifts inside. There is no fake in the clip.
The "problem" was, that the wind at this day came from the "wrong direction" so it was difficult to estimate the windspeed.

h't' all
you have forgotten to explain why the Psycho does have that lifT:

there is a new feature on the bar: its asmall red button. if this button is pressed, via radiocall there are some nozzles activated, which allow that hughe hangtime.

food is not eaten as hot as it is cooked. Wait until the next contests. Lets see if the hangtimewinners are Flysurferriders, but I cant believe it.

Aaaah, the sceptics are crawling out of the woodwork...nice. This means that they are very curious :grin:
1. The Psycho is more areodynamic than any tube, and "flys" like a paraglider.
2. The huge de-power alone will be a major contributing factor to the ability to produce huge hang time.
3. Don't believe it - try it!
4. I can't wait for the next hang time comp....

By the way, the red button is an old feature, which has been simply translated into a swift pull on the bar -> Power uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup... :grin:

At red bull king of the air in Hawaii Oct.5
Hang time winners were
Jaime Herraiz (7.15 sec)
Julie Prochaska (6.5 sec)

It seems like it's way, way off.
Physics is proven right yet again..... Psycho 4eva!!
