Is the kite not blown up enough? You can see the wingtip buckle and fold at 2:38.

Yeah OP...at the 1:10 mark what the hell were you thinking? It's one thing to boost just before you pass another rider who is down wind of you but throwing a loop is gonna' pull you right into his heading and you nearly hit the dude.

Where was your situational awareness?

The kite is pumped up to the recommended 8 PSI

the problem happens when performing kiteloops, when it re enters the power it sort of spills out the sides due to its aspect ratio and drag versus air speed, The Edge is not designed for that type of riding, the C4's are much better for that.

I knew some Jobs worth would comment on my risk factor, I say ride it like you stole it, I was simply defining my air space and offering a visual warning to stay the fuck out of my way,

The guy that nearly got nailed is the same dickhead that nearly took out my mate by riding up his arse, You can see his kite crash into the orange one around 3:10,

later that day the very same dickhead crashed into my kite which resulted in kites wrapped together and the QR being activated, so much for the warning

another video if your interested http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8xQDra3IE0

It takes 2 for kites to crash together. if the guy is less skilled then stay away from him. Its sounds like your were the dick head of the day buzzing dudes and jumping close to windsurfers.

I see no time when jumping close to guys to scare them away is a valid and reasonable response. It will only invoke anger and more dickhead like behaviour.

PS it they are your buddies and your buzzing them for shits and giggles its fair game.

PSs I liked the long floaty jumps later in the vid.

I go to 10psi on mine, when flying the kite at the top end of the wind range it helps keep the kite the right shape. They really don't like flying when under inflated.

You should be going a lot higher though :P

It's rad to push yourself and take risks but when you do that it's best to not unknowingly involve others in your radness. Just saying. Maybe they were your friends I don't know but just an observation from the video. No hating:)

hey Tone:

10 PSI ???? really...thats a lot of pressure my friend, especially in high winds, you seriously run the chance of splitting them seams and that would be a disaster....

and by the way, where did it say anything about top of its wind range, it was under powered most of the day, do you think id be looping that bad boy so close to people in 35 knots????? it was more like a 13m day......

lets see your video then sky boy......
