I thought the video sucked.
The camera operator kept spraying the camera around so it was difficult to see anything.
Continually showing Dimitri only showed that it is a pain if you drop your kite in light winds. It did not show what was happening before the kite dropped. It is a pathetic attempt to make him look bad. I suspect the Cabrinha would look just as lame if it fell in the water.
I have a Sector 60 and it is more than fun enough in light wind. I get heaps of riding in ridiculously light winds with my 13m Xbow. I might consider an 18m kite in the future, but not right now. I have more than enough gear littering my garage. The raceboard guys go upwind better but I carve better gybes and have a heap of fun on waves.
Pure race boards are kind of fun but logistically they are a nightmare. Expensive, fragile, bulky, ridiculously long fins.
Go over to the Board Builders ....
I have built my share of boards. It was fun to do and satisfying. At the moment I am not inclined to expose myself to expoxy dust and chemical fumes. I would rather leave that to the professionals with the experience and equipment to deal with all that crap.
I hope that the commercial builders are using some of the high prices of their boards to provide a decent working environment in their Asian factories.
