miss geico goes 200mph without cavitating with this prop
We need better kites. Right now we have an enormous tube, which limits our upwind performance. So the kiter has to have massive strength like Rob Douglas in order to resist the downwind pull.
With a more efficient kite, you don't need as much strength resisting the kite's drag and kiters could do another 30 knots. Cabrinha designed these kites for going 20-30 knots, not 60-70.
Like the initial post said, we have to go back to the drawing board, and it's going to require a big R&D effort by Cabrinha or maybe Ozone, they might be interested too, lots of money and time thrown into a one of a kind kite.
I think our boards are ok, because that is the one part where kiters are able to tinker easily with the board, tweak it, build it up, build it down, change shape, for very low cost, so I think our boards already have a lot of R&D put into them from kiters doing trial and error until they got it right.
