Arcsrule - I love it! What a story!Arcsrule wrote:Billie, I had a friend long time ago with one leg. he had a prosthetic made for daily use and one to fit inside his whitewater canoe. It was only a simple pole/socket setup but held him in and secure very good. Too bad, he rarely could roll the boat, only in flat water, he quite often swam the rapids--only because of his lack of roll. He actually could paddle class 3/4 quite well! My point, he swam a rapid on the Pegeon River in North Carolina and lost his 'leg'. It was all over the internet that a open boater lost his leg in that rapid. Imagine the uproar! Two years later, a kayaker found his leg, eventually found out what it was and it was returned. a case of beer was FEDEXED....THE END.
Billie - I made some video with my jumping and will post it soon. Please give me couple days as I'm busy next 2 days. I hope you will see that landing might be soft. It's possible and to be honest if you manage to jump on TT than should be no probs on the foil! Keep trying mate!
This is from today's session on 9m Velocity - I should have 13m to reach a meter or two higher flights. I was not powered enough in 13-15kts and a bit less in the breaking zone.
PT - above pictures show only 4 maybe 5m but it was not more than 12kts on 9m kite. As I said I should chose 13m.Peter_Frank wrote:Great to hear you are jumping BraCuru, and I am sure your heights are not exaggerated.
Won't be surprised to see guys flying 10+m soon.
