Taut,
Hard to believe you can poo poo that video. You may be tired of seeing huge loops on your computer but Incan guarantee that for those who are there to see it in person it must be a spectacle. Big air is by far the most exciting thing in our sport from a spectators perspective. And to have the courage to go that big in that kind of wind is not something we see in many other riders. Only a handful of us will do that. Show some respect by biting your tongue. That video makes me laugh out loud at how ridiculous it is. Sorry you are "bored" with it. Your response was kind of doushy.

Fuck that - it's his opinion and he's entitled to it... the best response you can make is "I don't agree" but to qualify it as doushy [sic] is illogical. And *douchy :lol:

Yes, it's a formulaic Len10/Red Bull video. But DAYUM I'm still impressed every time. That's just my opinion, though.

First he was on his 7m, later on he got his 9m up, he went even higher with the 9 of course :thumb:

Insane never seen him that high !


A 7m fuel in 50kts? That doesn't sound right... he can't be much more than 70kg I'm guessing.
It was fun to watch though... even the solo launch.... :D

yeah I know. That is why I said I regretted writing it. I also did say it must be nice to watch close by, and I really do think it is impressive and extreme...my main objection is that it is kind of like watching episode 250 of law and order. You kind of get the feeling you've watched it before. :-)

For sure there is some marketing with the Redbull drinking and such ... but I really love watching these Megaloop... it is just plain amazing.

I was at my friend Seb's place tonight and he showed me the clip on his big screen and wow... just amazing the way he can pull those megaloops in such big storm... most people would be scared to just go out kiting in such weather... you guys saw how he launches the kite !!! pretty extreme indeed.

Watching golf gets me bored but Len10... nope :nono:

totally agree with you!!for me trying to throw some loops like LEN10 gives me one more reason....it's like saying that watching Isle of Man TT is the same with motoGP!

I can see where tautologies is coming from but IMHO the main exciting thing in Len10s videos is the huge balls he has.

Guys,
tautologies is expressing his feelings same thing he does on the EPIC kites thread. I think usually this happens when people are very jealous of what other people have accomplished. It is called: ENVY. But I think he means no arm.
:allbegood:
