@ Pumpy,

Since you like thinking geek and inflatable ideas so much :lol:
I found a portable Star Trek Inflatable Captain's Chair for watching the Olympic.
But in fact it will be the majority of Inflatables crashing according my prediction :naughty:
compared to Ram Airs, to soften your ego a bit :!:

To much string on those ram air kites... that's gotta increase drag.


Lots of strings indeed, but lots more lift. What matters is the L/D ratio.

The arrival of kiteboarding as an Olympic discipline will go a long way to settling the inflatable vs ram air debate once & for all.

The LIES of ram lovers will be exposed for all the world to see.

Ram....
