After seeing a video where you did not make it upwind and another kite did I think it is time for you to stop using this argument.
I am sorry Mr.tautologies
but I think you need to go kiting more often or get some of my fresh milk (see picture
The reason I was walking back to where the people were filming was due to the fact that I was staying on the inside and the water was very shallow 2 to 6 inches deep and the tie was going out plus it was on shore light wind. And some times the water would retreat so much that I was almost kiting on an inch of water.
The fact is that I did not want to swim to chest deep water and go through these waves like what SupaEZ
did. So I started directly from the beach in 1 to 2 inches of water and was going back and forth. If you know about kiting you will understand how hard it is to stay up wind in such light wind conditions plus with the waves coming and pushing you down. It was hard to get through these small waves especially in these light wind on shore conditions. So again I don't understand your argument.
Anyways the way I read this is that as long as you stay upwind it is skill, if anyones else does it is because they cheat..or use different gear?
See that is my whole point....stop saying it all depends on the riders skill and then in the next sentence it doesn't. You do not get it both ways. I am not sure this is not absolutely clear.
You really do sound super arrogant when you claim that you can kite in 2 to 4 knots, but others cannot because they lack the skill...then once a video shows up with some wind you cannot keep up with others.
I personally I think it seems like the kites are doing pretty similar...but for the love of goats...stop telling people they don't have your lightwind skills.
Edit: I bet you will win the jump into houses competition any day of the week.
