Ok dude I can not understand how some one who was number 4 in the world in one sport.
Thinks the correct move is to lecture and insult...about some aspect you have no experience. In a different sport.....
I "CAN" snow-kite, on both skies and a snow-board.
I can Also Paraglide, as well as fly a sailplane and a HG ; and i'm gonna choose the tool
that gives me the Best odds of survive for the days sport. If Ya hadn't noticed
i'm Not very lucky or i would still have feet, so i kinda have-To leave myself
a way OUT when sh*t goes Bad.
The topic headliner, first post was a guy that looked to be several hundred
feet in the air with a water kite ; & there's somewhat ignorant people on THIS subject
that say to themselves : "That looks Fun, didn't know Ya could do that" !!
Being Ignorant of something Doesn't make a person Stupid !!!!
My advice : "Yea you CAN do that , but Don't" ---- "it ranks right up there with
doing heroin, and yes That is STUPID also" !!!
(( but people Have tried to talk me into That as well)).
Once again : "i'll stick with Pot, Beer and Pussy",
and I will do my home-work Before taking up what looks to be another
If i Blow-Up my HG doing ACRO, i got a reserve AND the altitude to use it,
unless i was at Torry Pines, then i got smooth enough coastal air that the
glider isn't gonna get destroyed in turbulence. Haven t done anything but glide
in years though.
SO there --Billy B--
I Want YOU to explain to --waynepjh-- , exactly what is happening when he
experiences THIS :
I prefer to glide on waterkites cause of there stability. I have glided on foils but have had collapses that when re inflating make it feel like the kite is going to explode. My point is that I hope one day somebody makes a kite that is built and tested to a higher standard. The possibilites are endless!
& "((DON"T))" Fuck-Up your response by leaving out critical Sh*t he should know
about, on what Is really happening , cause i'll be right here to get on your case if
Ya do !!!
SO -- waynepjh-- I know PG pilots that use the PG the same way you use a Kite, to
pull them-self UP a snow covered slope ; then turn and glide back down. That would
be WAY safer than what your currently doing now, and maybe it would give you ideas
for a safer way to glide ?
